    I want to become a linguist in the military. I am bilingual (fluent speaking, reading, writing in both English and Korean).

    I had a surgery for VSD when I was about 12months old. I am turning 21 in a week and for 20 years it has not given me any trouble. I participated in high school sports(soccer, football).
    I went to the navy recruiting office and filled some paper work out, and after a week I got a permanent DQ from MEPS. I am trying to appeal the permanent DQ and become a linguist in the navy.
    My question is, would it be easier for me to ask the Air Force to waiver me to become a linguist in the Air Force?

    Are there people out there who were able to get their VSD surgery waived??

    Also since I am bilingual, would that be a plus for the consideration of my waiver? And is the Korean language needed in the military?

    Cut and paste your posting; provide your complete name and last 4 SSN; and send me an email. Also, if you can provide (scan copies) of your last 5 years worth of cardiology records, NOT necessarily assuming you saw a Cardiologist in the last 5 years. I can assist U better from there:thumb: (I will be traveling all day today and will answer tonight:thumb:
