2. My stepson, now 47, is color blind to a moderate degree.

It wasn't discovered until he was at least 9. He was spending the weekend with m husband and me, and he found my book of Ishihara plates. We went thru them, and he got them all wrong. I thought he was yanking my chain, so we did them again, with the same results.

His mom got him tested, and he was definitely color blind. He had wanted to be a pilot, like his dad, so, of course, that was no longer an option. In a gently kidding way, he says he has never completely forgiven me for being the one who found it and destroying his career plans. It's actually his bio-mom's fault, of course.

He has had a productive career in the Air Force in the military police field, and will retire as a Lt Col. He has flown drones for several years.
