Will having Celiac Disease keep me from becoming a nurse in the Military?
Question by Spork21: Will having Celiac Disease keep me from becoming a nurse in the Military?
I want to serve in anyway that I can. I know that I couldn’t be a soldier on the battlefield, but could I become a nurse in the Army or the Air Force? Thanks, any input will be appreciated.

It depends on the country, possibly in the branch of the military. For the USA, last I heard, Celiac Disease is an automatic medical discharge, and will prevent your being allowed into the military, period. I understand it’s simply because they cannot provide safe food for you to eat on any of the bases or in the field.
Again, I could be mistaken about a certain branch, but I don’t believe so.
