What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? UCMJ
I enlisted in the regular Air Force in Oct. 2009. During a security clearance investigation they discovered that I had Asperger Disorder, a mild form of Autism, of which dosent effect me other than a minor social skills impairment.
My question is:
I didnt disclose this condition due I felt that it wouldnt be disqualifying if they found out. I base this on (1) The medical enlistment standards do not specifically prohibit enlistment without a waiver for this condition [Current or history of other mental disorders (all 290–319 not listed above) that in the opinion of the civilian or military provider will interfere with, or prevent satisfactory performance of military duty, are disqualifying.] (2) Asperger is not a mental illness under any legal definition, (3) Asperger in adults usually does not require any treatment (4) I was cleared by my doctor in 2008 to work at a prison, and I continued to work at the prison for the two years prior to my enlistment (5) If I could handle a stressful prison environment, then I could handle the military. (6) It is highly unlikely that I would ever be hendered by this condition in the future
Did I mess up by not mentioning something prior to my enlistment? I know that to be considered fraudulent enlistment a concealed condition must be disqualifying. I do not feel that it was disqualifying, Did I apply the law correctly here?
The Command has said nothing to me about it yet. The security investigator told me, that, at the most, they would probably order me to have a medical eval, and as long as they turned up OK, I would be fine.
