One in five Moldovan lads is not apt to serve in the army.
The doctors find in them different diseases: bad nerves, bad hearts, surgeries needed. The stress and bad feeding seem to be the key causes.
After being examined by doctors, the young men get a recruit certificate, at 16 years, but may join the army at 18.
In 2016, the military medics examined about 20,000 young boys. 2,300 were taken to serve in the army.
