"Excellent points. #4 is a concern, but as he gets older it has diminished greatly. I have planted the seed that there are many ways he can serve as a civilian. He is very concerned with how soldiers deal with returning stateside after combat. I told…"

"Your best bet would be to talk to an Army officer recruiter. I don't think anyone here can really answer it for you. My guess is the Aspbergers may present a problem, mild as it is. I could be wrong though. The ROTC officer may be able to help…"

U.S. Military and ADD/Aspbergers

My son is in JROTC. He has very mild Aspbergers and ADD and is doing extremely well without scholastic accommodations and medication for the ADD. If he takes the ROTC path in college and gets off his meds do you think there is a chance the Army would accept him? I have read many differing opinions on this.He is a driven young man with a strong desire to serve.See More
