Hello, I currently am attending Colorado State University on an AFROTC Scholarship. I have had a medical review done and they have been disqualified. From what I understand my case has been sent on to request a waiver for my condition. I was given a description of D102.70 Pulomonary embolism/systemic embolism. I am sure that is the only classification they had. To be specific I had Paget-Schroeder Syndrome. I wanted to be a quarterback my freshman year at St. Mark's School so, I threw the football about repetitively every day during the summer. Which built up my muscle on my upper arm, my throwing arm. That is what led to the problem. My obstruction was in the vein of my right shoulder. They removed my first rib to relieve the pressure in the thoracic outlet area. All of this happened in my freshman year. I went on to earn 10 athletic letters as well as many extracurricular activities including mountain climbing every summer. My doctor, Dr Bertram L. Smith assured me that, like many professional athletes he had worked with, I would have no further problem with it and Dr. Smith was correct. I have fully recovered and I feel I should not penalized for my tenacity and aspirations. I want to serve my country to the best of my ability.
