      Sorry I didn't see this note sooner - I had just updated my password and saw this message.

      My son was diagnosed at age four and received treatment for a total of about 3 1/2 years. He acheived remission within the first two months but the protocols specified a 3-year maintenance period for boys. So his records indicated that his treatment ended in 1999 with no recurrence.

      For us, contacting the DoDMERB folks was very helpful. I had seen some general references to 5 years of remission being a positive indicator towards getting a waiver (a waiver will be required), but nothing really definitive.

      Also the waiver process is different depending on where you are applying - the Army ROTC granted a waiver shortly after we requested it; West Point took quite a bit longer because their admissions board makes the final determination after the medical staff review the files.

      Good luck with your application, Mark
