Hi, I'm really interested in joining either the Air Force or Army, and want to join ROTC my sophomore year in college (in going to be a freshman this fall, and am going to try to take some ROTC classes), but I'm well aware of the asthma DQ issues and such. I've read over the DoDMERB standards and understand that 1) if I pass the methacholine challenge, or 2) go without my inhaler for 3 years on I should be eligible... I found out that I was diagnosed with asthma literally like a week after the cutoff age, and have had an inhaler issued as 'precautionary' (it wasn't clear to me that I didn't have to use it, the doctor told me to so I did). Anyways, I haven't had any problems with my asthma and have stopped using my inhaler since I know it can ruin my chances even more the more I use it. I really, truly believe that I have either grown out of it, or never had it. I've played soccer all my life, go to the gym frequently, consider myself pretty fit, and don't have any issues with breathing. I'm planning on taking the methacholine challenge at the end of this summer before I report for college soccer pre-season just to eliminate any suspicions. Basically what I'm asking is, are my two understandings above correct? And if I pass the methacholine challenge test, can I still be DQd? And also, are there other ways around the asthma issue since I'm fairly certain I dont have it?
