Q: I just found out I have asthma and I have been in the army for 4 years.
Just found out I have asthma after being in the army for 4 years. Prior to the military I was in perfect health and passed all health exams with flying colors. I want to know what i have to do to get out of the military and get my benefits/disability for this, without the rundown on them trying to keep me in
A: Can you perform your job duties with or without a reasonable accommodation? Have you requested an accommodation?
