What kind of medical conditions prevent you from joining the armed forces?
I wanted to join the air force when I was in my early 20s, but was told that because I have epilepsy I’m not allowed to join.😕.
Are there any other medical conditions that prevent someone from joining? If so then what are they? (Besides epilepsy)

the list is endless. less than 30% of all US citizens and legal residents between the ages of 18-34 actually qualify to enlist.

You can google it but basically any condition that needs ongoing medical attention and care. Such as diabetes. If you need a medicine on a daily basis or your die, then you are not going to get in.

I inquired about joining the Air Force once.........and was told I was 4-F because I had gall bladder surgery.
So I walked right over to the Navy Recruiter, and asked him, if not having a gall bladder was a problem.
He said NOPE...............and I signed on the spot.

It's a long list, and you could have one on that list that you didn't now you had. If there's a war though NO PROBLEM.
