To the Vet Tv community so my story of applying for the military go something like this sorry I’ve applied for around 15 different military positions in everything from the New York State only shows the Irish national guard so it blurs together a bit sorry about that.
I filled out the form to join the New York State guard after a close friend of mine join the United States Navy because I wanted to have part of the military experience on my terms I waited months and didn’t get a response back I filed the application for interest and I just didn’t get a response from the recruiter so I just forgot about it thought it wasn’t meant to be. Then I applied for the Coast Gard auxiliary that’s where Miner Torres I infection cause me to completely neglect my school work and get my parents grounded me and generally be mad with me which helped prevent me from going to the maps are moaning because it’s technically a civilian military position there’s no consequence for not going besides not being able to join. So I look into joining the US Army reserves and they tell me the medication is an automatic disqualification I work out a bit more look at The waiver process with a fine tooth comb and find nothing to work with however I got rejected the second time to pay prescient them I can do effort. I went to the Navy and looked into whether or not they would take me, because I got a 56 on the practice as Bab I wanted to be a master at arms and I had 68 collage credits, my recruiter was pretty nice when she was helping me fill the job but it came to getting my rejection paperwork to spite my security clearance the medicine was an issue I couldn’t get a waiver for they were not very nice when it came to formally rejecting me so I can apply for state militia job. The Marines no dice the Air Force no dice on the medication. The CG is actually the most flexible towards medication. Depending on which component you try joing. I wanted to join the Army National Guard because they had a transition period for me to go off my medicine one I would still be in the Armed Forces so I wouldn’t be risking going off my meds and getting rejected for nothing however ignoring sound medical advice and then having them think my dyslexia made me too stupid to pass the as Bab led me to being rudely rejected then getting a second opinion led me to being told that my medical history should just disqualify me unless I have a college degree I can apply for medical waiver and going up my meds is really really dangerous and I really shouldn’t do it and I’m not getting approved without a college degree even if I can stay off the meds. The Navy said even if I could stay mad free they’re not taking me for the pervasive developmental disorder stuff the Air Force won’t touch me but they’re pretty ablest anyway and I don’t really want to join the Air Force. The CG auxiliary just doesn’t pay so my parents stole the power of money or for me but otherwise they’re thrilled to take me as an unpaid civilian volunteer. One of the guys in the Harlem Coast Guard auxiliary little save nine people from a fire out on the coast by the way. I don’t really want to be a marine they might take me as an undesignated but even then I don’t think they can really enable me to risk severe brain damage by going off my medications and I looked at the lead goals closure acts of what I have to disclose and if somethings a critical health and safety risk to myself or others I legally have to slows it or risk a felony charge by lying about it in the enlistment process so i’m not going to lie and risk hurting other people or getting a felony would I risk hurting myself if they let me I don’t know maybe. The Irish National Guard I could apply to as a US citizen the thing is I’m already more than 50% through college if I was maybe at the year and a half mark of college I’d probably say you know what I want to do the army but since I’m so close to finishing college I’m like I’ll just finish it maybe I’ll do it after college maybe by the time I’m done with college I just won’t want to do the army stuff anymore I don’t know what I’m gonna do. My parents the eye injury and my disability had me joining the arm forces of the United States incredibly difficult I will see what I want to do if I even want to do the cadets thing again to potentially enlist and something for a few years but I’m less interested in doing now that I was a few years ago. Hopefully I get to do the marine educators workshop and even though I got jerked around on this before I hope I get into the Coast Guard auxiliary for 2020 because of all the military and quasimilitary organizations that’s the only one that still in trust me and I really like the mission of what they do plus I’m a natural recruiter I’ve done it in the civilian world. Anyway I kind a like the ed domesticated cadet. Where I won’t exaggerate my military service however I may use potentially in accurate terms to simplify when I do not have The opportunity to tell my incredibly long and somewhat boring story about trying to join the military. Over about my personal life I kind a like playing a cartoon exaggeration of myself or I exaggerate about the time I balled out in the 1% the time I flew a private plane and then I like to make up stuff that is sort of true but is just bullshit like yeah I had two bottles of Christian ran a nightclub or that I went to the top of the Seattle space needle or that I’ve never been to Canada have I met the former Chief of Staff call Rove I’m not saying either way have a work for a 51 well probably not but you don’t let stop pretend that that’s possible did I run for city council of New York am I bitter about the military not excepting me. Have I dated a model was I a geek in high school I kind a like being able to play around more with the character and kind of being able to tell a truth version of myself and exaggerate about the personal details if you get what I mean I told the truth about the military stuff but everything else I kind a like to exaggerate a little for comical fact unless you ask me to be straight with you and then I’ll tell you the unvarnished truth.
You have a lot of great enthusiasm, and your willingness to join the Armed Services puts you into a small number of patriots that are able to say that. You have reason to be proud that your heart is in the right place. The bottom line is that not all of us are going to fit the into the roles that the Armed Services need right now, and THAT IS OKAY. We can help in other ways.
