I am about to join the Military. Looking to go into a job that requires a high(ish) level of security clearance. I had asthma when I was ten for about six months or so (at least that is what the medical records show). I did not say yes to asthma when I was doing the paperwork for MEPS. At MEPS I do not plan on saying yes. This is due to the fact that it was 10+ years ago over a short period of time. I told my recruiter all of this and he said the people at MEPS will only care if it was after I was 13. So there is no point in putting it on there. During the security clearance paperwork will it ask if I have ever had asthma? Will they look into my medical records to check? If they do could I possibly get kicked out? Should I say yes, on the security clearance paperwork, since I do have medical records for it? If I do, could I get kicked out for “lying” when joining the military? I do not believe I am lying, the doctor said it was asthma, but I am sceptical. I am also not a doctor so what do I know. If none of this matters and I have nothing to worry about ignore the previous questions. If you need any more details to better answer this question let me know.
