Re: medical discharge army

Cossy.....They probably feel his "flareups" would interfere with his ability to perform his duties. Soldiers are deployed to areas where this sort of ailment would be aggravated by anything from the uniform to food to dusty, dirty conditions. I know it's disappointing for him but perhaps he can find another way to serve his country.
