Mr. Mullen, My son has applied for a Navy ROTC scholarship for 2009. I foresee there could be three issues that DODMERB will want information about and I wanted to get your take on whether any could be a real problem. 1. He was diagnosed approximately four or five years ago with the inattentive form of ADD. While the doctor wrote us a prescription for medication, she indicated that whether we used it was totally up to us as he was doing extremely well in school and, based on test scores, was considered gifted and talented. We never used the prescription. He has never taken any medication for the condition and has never sought nor received any accommodations for the condition. 2. He used to get migraine headaches as a child. We tried some different medications but there came a time several years ago when he was no longer getting them. He played football while he was going through his issues with migraines and still played afterward and also took up lacrosse throughout high school. As I said, he has not experienced migraines for approximately four years. 3. He has allergies to dust mites, certain grasses and trees, cat dander, shellfish, etc. The shellfish allergy is interesting because various shellfish are among his favorite foods and he has never stopped eating them and has never experienced any reaction that we are aware of. He was diagnosed by an Allergist approximately a year and a half ago and was prescribed Nasonex and Allegra. He had previously taken Flonase. Since his prescription was changed to Nasonex and Allegra, he has been fine and has not had to have any follow-up visits to the Allergist. Assuming I provide all necessary documentation to DODMERB about his medical situation do you see any of these issues as a real problem? Thank you for any assistance and/or advice.
