Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome

I am 21 years old and has been diagnosed with WPW Syndrome, my cardiologist said that it was "minor" is this going to prohibit me from entering the service? I was planning on going in to either the NG or the Air Force.

Do you have any symptoms? This seems to determine how it is treated if at all. I am sure your cardiologist will keep you monitored in the future for further symptoms. I can't see why this should interfere with your plans to join the forces as long as you aren't having any symptoms. Good luck with your future!
