    Hello I am in highschool and I want to do AFROTC in college and become an army nurse. I have had exercised-induced asthma for about 5 or 6 years, but it really isn't that bad. I hardly ever use my inhaler, and if I do wheeze,I am able to control it in a couple of minutes. It also has been getter better the more I do cardio. Would this prevent me from joining the army? Is there any way I can get a waiver for it or something? Thank you!

    Most likely you will face an uphill battle in becoming medically qualified for military service. There is always a possibility, but for asthma it is difficult at best.
