Enlisting in the armed forces has always been a major dream of mine. Something I've always wanted to do and have started looking more into as my age draw nearer. But something has just dawned on me which could very well have crushed my hopes. How would my allergies to Peanuts affect my enlistment? I will admit, they are rather severe and I was prescribed an epipen. That being said, is there SOME WAY, ANY WAY, in which I can still serve? I have heard mixed comments regarding the subject, some stating they managed to still enlist, while others saying they were immediately DQ. Is there some way in which I can circumvent my circumstances? Possibly scoring extremely well on the ASVAB or APFT? Or even getting a note from my previous doctors, PE teachers, and even family/friends regarding how I still physically prepared despite my setback? Any help or info would be great and even better would be if somebody with an allergy here on the forums managed to enlist in an armed force of some kind.
