PWS Military Waiver?
I have a PWS on my upper leg a little smaller than my hand when the fingers are together and straight. It doesn't cause me any problems but the doctor at MEPS was worried about bleeding so now I have to wait and see if they will grant me a waiver. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with a PWS and getting into the military.

Well, gee. No, I have never heard of anyone having trouble getting into the military because of a PWS. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen... I just didn't get to hear about it.

Let us know how that turns out. I'd be interested to know the outcome of that.
