Some who have not served in the army, however, have a military ID with incomprehensible digital codes. These numbers can be a hindrance when applying for a job or when obtaining rights. Let's try to understand these secret notation.
Deciphering an article in a military ID
In order to understand exactly what information is encrypted in a military ID, you need to know the basic rules for encryption.
In order to correctly determine the status of the recruit on the medical commission in the military, for each degree, the following letter symbols are used:
- “A” means that the draftee is fully fit and can serve in any army without any problems;
- "A1" - imposes certain informal restrictions (in the elite troops such recruits can not take). This category means that a draftee could suffer diseases that are not too dangerous for health;
- The category "A2" means that the conscript's fitness is limited, as he could suffer serious illness or serious injury;
- “B” means health problems, but the recruit can be served;
- Category "B" - means suitability in wartime. Such recruits are immediately credited to the reserve and are called upon only in the event of war;
- "G" - means unfit for service. A conscript can count on a constant delay. Once a year he will be examined in the hope that he has recovered;
- Category "D" means a total worthlessness (the so-called "white" ticket). If possible, it is better to stay away from this category. It’s very hard to get a good job with her. There are also problems with obtaining a driver's license.
These categories help the military enlistment office specialists to distribute recruits by type of military force, in accordance with their state of health.
Is it possible to remove the article and category in the military card
The article in the military card will be removed only if the draftee can be cured of the disease indicated in the military card. To do this, he must be re-examined in the military. If the survey results show that the article can be canceled, then it is removed.
Since the list of diseases is often revised, the categories of articles may vary. There are cases when recruits changed the article, even without arranging a survey, this happened automatically.
Often, the owners of not the best marks in the military card are faced with problems in obtaining a driver's license. By law, rights are not given only to persons with serious diseases of the musculoskeletal system, mental disorders or diseases of the sensory organs. In other cases, you need to insist on being right.
Articles that are most often found in military tickets (7b, 14b, 18b, 20b and others)
The following articles appear most often on military tickets, each of which is divided into several categories of suitability:
- Article 7 - despite the fact that article 7 (especially 7 b) became known as "psychic" and that until now the diagnosis "7b" is nominal (there was even such a rock band "7b"), in the modern classifier of diseases the article " 7b "indicates mycoses (the letter" b "denotes dermatophytosis (a fungus));
- Article 13 includes disorders of the endocrine system - in simple terms, obesity;
- Article 14b - these are mental disorders of weak severity;
- Article 18b - various personality disorders. The article is considered to be quite “calm” (which cannot be said about “a”). May adversely affect the receipt of work and driver's license;
- Article 20 - mental retardation. 20b - easy degree. This article is not recommended to have a military card. Similar articles (such as 20b and 18b) are very reluctantly removed by psychiatrists;
- Article 21 - epilepsy;
- Article 23 points to various diseases of the nervous system, mainly hereditary;
- Article 27 points to nerve injuries;
- Article 34 - violation of accommodation and refraction (vision problems);
- Article 51 - indicates various respiratory related diseases;
- The famous article 68 - flat feet;
- Article 80 - indicates anomalies of the development of various organs and systems.
This list is far from complete, but these articles are most often found in military tickets.
Is it possible to change the mark in the military card and how to do it
Until 2005, all conscripts who were deemed unsuitable had to be examined every three years (a second medical examination). After 2005, this provision was abolished in order to save money.
Now a draftee who wants to undergo a second medical examination in order to change the article can submit an application to the military registration and enlistment office demanding an examination. If the draft board fails, you can request an examination through the court.
Do not forget: if the re-examination removes the article, and the recruit at this point will not be 27 years old, then he will have to join the army.
If you want to get rid of the article whose number is recorded in your ticket, you need to:
- Get a description from work or school;
- Get a medical examination;
- Call the draft board, demanding an article.
If you cannot change the article in this way, you can simply change the military ID to a new one, in which there will only be an expiration date, without the article number. In 2006, a government decree was introduced, according to which it is not lawful to put the number of the article in the military ticket.
