Hello, I am a 23 year old with a college degree and an EMT-B certification. I am interested in the National Guard SF in Florida, specifically doing an 18-X and becoming a medic. In high school I found out that I had an anomaly in my cerebral artery; it's not diagnosed as an aneurysm, but it's definitely not nothing either. I am not limited from doing any activity aside from deep underwater diving. My question is: Do I need a medical waiver for something like this? I see that under Army Regulation 40-501, aneurysms and neurological vascular problems are a disqualifying circumstance. Would the NG even consider considering me for a waiver or is this an absolute disqualifier? What is my best play? Try and go to MEPS and get approved or disqualified? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
