medical waivers, selective memory, hum drum: Nobody would ever know. That is my opinion. I base this on patient/doctor confidentiality.

technical prowess, military capabilities, missile defense: The Russian military is, generally speaking, not a threat to the US. It could, however, present a threat to US Allies if they chose to.

u.s. military might: Tony: In a word, no. Since the demise of the Soviet Union in 1991, the U.S. has often been referred to as a hyperpower -- the sole superpower in a unipolar world. No country or combination of countries would likely take on the U.S. in a conventionally...

Military Policy & Weapons: IRR time, pins and needles, ag battle
pins and needles, ag battle, deployment orders: Very unlikely you would be called up in the IRR. All units right now are on pins and needles that they might be called up.

Military Policy & Weapons: Physical - Colorblindness Test, colorblindness test, navy recruiter
colorblindness test, navy recruiter, larry weaver: This sounds like waiver material. Also, the navys nuke program has different levels of requirements.

sourses, clearance issues, wetting the bed: It can be the same as collage.

Military Policy & Weapons: Disqualifications, false accusation, signs of depression
false accusation, signs of depression, skeltons: This sounds only minor. A paperwork certificate should take care of that. Ask your recruiter for the process of getting this document. It can be done.
