With Veteran's Day later this month.. we’re talking about T1D in the military. Yes, you can serve with type 1 diabetes, but there’s a catch. You have to be diagnosed while you’re already enlisted. That’s what happened to Sergeant Major Mark Thompson.

Buy Stacey's new book, "The World's Worst Diabetes Mom"

Mark shares his story and has advice for young people with diabetes who want to enlist and find that they aren’t allowed.

In Tell Me Something Good, a study at Ft Bragg that is changing the military’s perception of type 1 diabetes.. and how a canoe trip through the Canadian wilderness changed one family’s perception of life with diabetes.
