Celiac stopped a dream


Dear President Trump,

I have wanted to be a United States Marine since I was 8 years of age. Yet when I began college and began trying to join the OCS program I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, the in-ability to eat gluten due to my auto-immune system attacking it anywhere in my body. Recently I have re-evaluated my fitness regiment and double my efforts to lose weight in an attempt to again attempt joining The Marines. I have again been confronted with the same problem. It seams like a bit of a waste to exclude people that are truly motivated to serve based on a disease that is completely non-existent when you do not eat gluten. Nearly 3 million Americans have Celiacs and many want to serve their country more than anything in this world. Please sir I ask you to make a simple change to the MRE's or at least to the Department of Defense's regulations preventing service.

Sincerely,

Matthew L Dufner
