You can tick a branch of service----then, in your post, tell us whether you're "enlisted", or "veteran".

I'm a veteran of the U.S. Navy.

Sorry, I clicked Navy before seeing the final option which as a Navy veteran of another country is the one I should have picked.

Civilian

When I was 20, the ROTC Captain Dumont, San Diego State University

Had the nerve to tell me that "students that take six years to graduate are undisciplined. We don't take undisciplined students"

2003

Might as well

"Don't ask don't tell"

:mrgreen:



Later I got the following diagnosis, officially

They are meps disqualifiers

Asperger's (no longer in DSM 5)

Depression

Anxiety

Obsessive compulsive disorder

Gender identity Disorder

Over six months, counseling


Menopause.



But I am totally fascinated in the military
