Soooooo, I must be feeling really ambitious or really bored of both
I sent an online form for more information from the US Navy. I have somehow convinced myself that I will fly for them. (But not necessarily from the carriers.) I doubt they'd take me, what with my medical history and all, though I had lately been struggling to find a really authentic and structured way in which to whip myself back into shape, and hell, maybe this is one such way.
I have a friend who joined the Marine Corps. with a mental health condition, and while she took the medication, so I suppose it can be done. Assuming they actually do take me, I'd hope to go to school on the officer's plan. I am still at the right age I believe for that, still have 5 more years.
But then again, maybe I am just really ambitious or really bored, haha.

Mediacl condition? And you want to join the armed forces - albeit the American armed forces. What sort of medical condition? I would assume from your post it isnt serious - like dementia or only one leg - but will it stop you flying?
My son wanted to fly for the RAF but he had athsma years ago, now he has been told he'll never fly for them.
Stay bored, post on A.net and live a life of trouble free banality, thats my advice
Nice to see you back UTA - gonna stay good now? (As if!!)
