    I'm wondering if the DODMERB has ever dealt with/given waivers to people with Chiari Malformation. I found out I had it three years ago, and two years ago I had surgery for it. They called it a posterior fossa decrompression and neuraplasty. Before then, I got headaches when I did certain strenuous activities. Since the surgery, the headaches have gone away and I can do anything. I'm in excellent physical shape, my grades are good and I'm in lots of extracurricular activities, including Civil Air Patrol. I'm currently a sophomore in High School, and I would very much like to become an officer in the military, and be a pilot if at all possible. Should I forget about the military, or is there a chance I could get a waiver?
