    Cadet Command posted on Facebook a picture of cadets getting a physical at summer training and this got me thinking. DS will be going to CLC next summer. What does the physical involve? Should I "arm" him with all the documentation from his original DODMERB waiver?

    On the Training Schedule that I received for CLC it mentioned that on the first day there is a height/weight screening, but not a full physical.

    Looking forward to hearing what they have to say to my son....he's 20+ pounds overweight on Army standards but runs at about 8-10% body fat so back at his home school, they don't even bother taping him any more. I know his biggest concern is being able to go to the gym the next 4 weeks :)

    I know for CIET my son turned in some medical documents at school that were electronic. It was one of those long health history things like they filled out for DODMERB. If they answered yes to any questions, in the spot where you would normally explain it, they put"see Dodmerb", if it was something that occurred before their Dodmerb physical. If it occurred after they had to explain it. They also had to have their shot record.

    His Battalion will be sending in his medical paperwork and he will only have an issue if something has changed since his last physical.
