i am 17 i have always wanted to go to the army, military, marines, navy, airforce, or researves but i was diagnosed with diabetes a couple of months ago i really wanna go i dont care what i got to do. i was even counting on the military services to help me get through coledge, i keep getting told that i cant join but i dont really wanna beleive it, it doesnt seem fair. if there is any info or any thing i could even do in the military with diabetes let me know i would greatly apreciate it, thanks.
