  • Medical Waiver

    Hello, my name is Catherine. I would like to join the Guard, but I have Crohn's Disease. I was wondering with the Guard if it was possible to join if I had a medical waiver? I'm fine as long as I take my pills daily, but If I understand correctly, dependency on medication is a disqualifier?.
