My dad was just recently (a few days ago) diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. On the DODMERB website, a history of it disqualifies me from going into the military. He got it because he became obese and finally it came around to bite him in the behind. My family did all we could to not let him get it but he was too stubborn. I, on the other hand, am perfectly healthy besides that flaw in my history. But that's the thing; is it considered my history now? Did my father's unhealthy choices and ways just crush something that I actually thought I had a chance at-- my dream?
