English translation:was not discharged for health reasons
Explanation:
In the Norwegian military, where conscription is still the order of the day, being dimittert is to be dismissed, discharged, released from further obligations, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with graduation. The verb is to dimittere, and it has practically no other applications. The noun is dimittering.

The ambiguity in the source text is still there in the target: The conscript could have been discharged for some non-medical reasons, OR the conscript was not discharged even though he could have been for health reasons.
