Correct. There are Medical Doctors, PhDs, Chiropractors etc.
And then there is Dr. Phil, Dr. Seuss, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Dr. Dre, Dr. Pepper, Dr. No, Dr. Dolittle ........and so on.

I am pretty sure though that Dr. Phil is actually a real Doctor

Radiologist. My background is in computers though, which is why everyone expects me to fix their computer problems. Who ever said earlier that we can usually fix problems in 1/15th the time of tech-support guys is dead on. I just got finished saving a colleague's digital photo collection because his hard drive got "trashed by a virus" and Dell tech-support told him it was lost.

The military recruiting is at 20 year low and missing all their targets. I don't think they'll refuse anyone at this point in time.
