Hi I'm Tyler, I'm currently 16, nearly 17 and live in Texas. It's always been a dream of mine to pursue a military career but unfortunately I've had asthma since I was born and while I can run a 8:30 minute 1.5 mile and it is easily managed, it's still a permanent disqualifier at the moment. I'm hoping that by the time I graduate college there will either be a cure for asthma, lessened restrictions on asthmatics (non combat and such), or I can at least get it waived. I signed up on this forum to ask anyone who's qualified and experienced in the contracting business what would be the best way to find a career in contracting without military experience say things don't work out? I've heard becoming an EMT would be an option due to the need for those who are experienced in the medical field but I don't know for sure. I've also heard law enforcement agents are usually accepted, which field would get me the best training/advantage in the hiring process? Thanks and God bless.
