"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…"

"The question is largely can he handle the possible situations he will be in.  That is for the recruiter to figure out.  I know that if he is on meds it will be a problem.  "

Jirby replied to Dennise's discussion U.S. Military and ADD/Aspbergers
"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

Getty/Dubay and the fountain pen

Hey all,In an effort to both get my feet wet with fountain pens and to improve my handwriting, I purchased a Lamy Safari (I also have the refillable doohicky and a bottle of Quink) as well as the book "Write Now" by Getty/Dubay.  The book was recommended in this group in an older discussion, that's why I bought it. While my handwriting isn't too bad by most people's standards, I'd like it to be excellent.  I often take notes and when writing as fast as I can, my handwriting quickly becomes hard…See More
