For the last few months i have been filling out my application for the Canadian Forces and waiting on my acceptence or denial letter. Well today i got the letter and this is what it said:

Dear Mr. Davidson

I have reviewed the medical records accompanying your application to join the Canadian Forces. The medical documents indicate you were diagnosed with Patello-femoral syndrome. Accordingly medical limitations on duties have been assigned. Unfortunatly you do not meet the medical standard required by both the Regular and Reserve Forces.

*goes on about the standards for reg. and reserves*

*goes on about medical limitations and why they are given*

The next page says what the medical limitations are.

The stuff i put in bold threw me off haha i thought the letter was telling me i didn't get accepted and there reasons for denying me was the patello-femoral syndrome and i thought the limitations they gave were the ways in which the syndrome would afflict me and thats why i couldnt join. I later realised that it was actually me getting accepted and the medical limitations are things they will do to make basic training safer for me.

All day i was depressed thinking i didn't get accepted. Then i just read the letter again and realised how i was wrong haha it turned my world around this has been my dream for over 8 years now!

The part i put in red is the stuff that tells me that it is an acceptance, because limitations on duties means i will still be on duty

oh and if you are curious what patello-femoral syndrome is, its where my knee caps were grinding on the bones in my joints because my legs weren't as strong as they should be and i just needed to work out my legs and it would go away, so i did and it is gone, they just want to make sure i dont get hurt:p.

This so awesome haha

I'm US Air Force. I saw servicemen from all over when I was in the desert last time, but I don't remember seeing any Canadian AF.

Goodluck still though!

Wow that's pretty cool to have members of the army coming on the UG forums.

Good luck with it all man.

When I joined up back in January, man that was by far the worst day of my life. It all wasn't too bad until the physical... which was the most embarrassing **** ever. Standing in a line with 19 other guys with nothing on, and then an old ass doctor with a flashlight moving ever so slowly upon the line of completely naked men saying, "Turn your head to the right, cough... okay turn around, spread your cheeks." The best part was when he got to this one guy and said, "Turn your head to the right and cough... pull back your foreskin... a little more." Everyone got a good chuckle out of that.

The worse part of that day was when I got home after waking up at 3:30 in the morning, talked with my girlfriend about how embarrassing the day was... and then she breaks up with me. Hadn't quite acknowledged it but wow, that really was the most depressing day I've had so far in these 18 years.

*Sigh* I don't know why people join the military.
Why not just go camping with a couple of mates, take a sniper rifle, and a few cases of alcy.
Lulz always ensured.

EDIT: But congrads anyways

I tried to enlist with the Marines, but I'm blind in my left eye so the bastards wouldn't let me.
I'm not American I can still see where I'm shooting.

Congratulations on getting into the army guys. Not really my cup of tea (plus I have a medical history the size of a phone book so I'd never get in) but props to you all for serving your country.
#29
i feel safe knowing my country's army consists of people from UG
congrats, man

Congrats. I dream of joining the military. Only I have a long term girlfriend and I am in college right now. As soon as either of those fall threw, I imagine ill be joining pretty quickly. More so then being in the military I am trying to get a degree in some sort of engineering so I can go into weapons design.

I always think of the military as a last resort. Something to do if you have no job/girlfriend/prospects etc.

Congrats on getting in man. I plan to apply once I graduate and turn 18. I'm thinking I'm going for light infantry though, and if I'm really good I'll see about applying for sniper training. I also want to join the US Marine Corps but I'm guessing you have to be an American citizen to do that, so I think I'll just stick with my Canuck brethren . But yeah, congratulations . Go blow some shit up on behalf of UG!
