This article explores whether or not having an asthma waiver will limit the types of military occupations one can obtain. It explains that some military jobs are considered "high risk" and those with asthma may be denied these types of positions. However, some waivers are granted, depending on the type and severity of asthma and the individual's medical history. It is important to understand that many specialties are still available to those with asthma who obtain a waiver. In conclusion, having asthma does not necessarily exclude one from military service, but they may need to obtain a waiver to be eligible for certain positions.
