Hi, I have a difficult although not an impossible situation. If I can give a little background on myself. I'm a 31 year old federal agent with a current TS/SCI. I have my bachelors degree in Criminal Justice / Public Safety Administration and I'm nearing completion of my associates degree in Nursing to become a RN (side project not quiting my job). I have taken several Army courses to include CMAST (combat medic advanced skills training), and The Protective Service Training Program and Anti-Terrorism Driving Course. I'm also a current EMT-Paramedic and I have taken the OEMS (Operational and Emergency Medical Skills) which is one of the courses that the SOF medics take.
My current medical condition is deemed excellent but for type 1 diabetes that I have had for the past 11 years. I know there have been numerous discussions about diabetics in the military and the blanket discrimination bans against them but I also know that the National Guard has slightly more leeway than the traditional Army does. I'm fit and if I didn't tell people I was diabetic they would never know (doesn't pick up on lab tests). I actually had one recruiter tell me to lie about it and then "discover" it after I was in. Obviously this is ridiculous, I don't want to lie and I'm insulin depenedent.
I'm interested in becoming an Officer and would prefer to be in the 35 series MOS but would entertain other MOS opportunities. If anybody thinks their State would consider me as a candidate please contact me. I'm willing to travel within 4 hours of the Pentagon (a former employer).
