Have recently applied to get into the army which to be honest i was really looking forward to! Went to careers office for 1 1/2 mile run which i got just over 10 minutes, sent in all medical documents which i was told by the doctor were just fine. Then i recently recieved a letter rejecting me from the army based on a history of drug dependency and behavioural problems!! For starters both these things on my record are over 6 years old, the drug dependency being about 6 years ago when i failed a medical for the DVLA due to levels of cannabis in my system 'amounting to dependance'. This didn't require treatment or anything of the sort and is long in the past. Behavioural problems were from when i was about 12!!! Am now 25. I was quite astounded at being rejected for things so long in the past as i have no health problems and am more than fit enough for service. Have arranged with my doctor for blood tests etc, (which are gonna cost be about Â£90) the letter i recieved says i have the right to appeal which i will as soon as i have medical evidence, just wondering if anyone had any advice what else could help my appeal.
