Hi im Stefan, I also have classical PKU, just like you. I want to join the military and I heard that the Army omly allows PKU people? Since you have been in the military for 10+ years. I really want to join the Army and become a warrant officer and fly helicopters… do you think I could be allowed to do that in the Army? or is there only certain jobs i can do in the military? and how do i go thru basic training with PKU and on base taking my medicine? thats a few questions i have for you! Thanks for replying- Stefan.
