My son has been decided he really wants to get appointment into the USAFA. In doing research on qualifications, we ran accross a instant medical DQ. He was diagnosed with asthma at 15. He may have used the inhaler 1 to 2 times at best. After losing weight and getting in shape he has not had any problems; just meds for sinusites. I never dreamed this would effect his future in such a way. He is sick at the thought of this preventing his appointment. It seems in everthing I read the cut off for such diagnosis is 12. Is there any hope at all of getting a medical waiver with asthma after that age? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
