OK Doc, oldest son is at USMMA. Went to Acceptance Day last weekend and the youngest son says he is very interested. Before we go down that path I am concerened about the color blind test. He has never been officially diagnosed w this problem but he has stated over the years that he sees some colors different than his siblings - but not in the reds and greens. I know every academy's requirement is a bit different but could you pass along the requirement for the Navy so we can have him tested. I know there are two different tests and the one conducted on a naval base is the official one (can a civilan take this test?). My point here is to get this issue addressed up front - if he cannot pass, there is no point in having him apply for the nominations and recommendations that are required for an appointment. My concern is there was one Candidate at the USMMA that was disenrolled this summer from the Regiment due to being color blind. Definitely legitimate, (if your are red/green color blind you cannot be admitted) but you would have thought the DODMERB would have caught this in advance.
