Can you tell the difference between red and green on a traffic light? If so you can probably get a statement of demonstrated ability.

One of the instructors I know is colorblind with the limitation of day flights only.  So you can still fly if that's your dream.  But it sounds like you're trying to fly in the military, I don't know if you can do it but I wish you luck!  


The only way to find out for sure is to schedule a Class 1 flight physical and let them determine if you're eligible.
