I have been on Active Duty since 2002. In 2004 at the age of 20, my grandmother died. She was like my mom and raised me for majority of my life. I had to seek counseling for this and a horrible relationship with my girlfriend at the time. In 2009, I deployed to Iraq. No issues with PTSD or anything like that. Two years later still no issues, I separated and joined ROTC. I took my physical and was honest about everything. When they asked for remedial information I sent it all in as well. Last week I called DoDMERB and was notified that I was DQ'd because of Mood Disorder. I am puzzled at how I was Dq'd after 9+ years of honorable service. I'm an NCO now and I want to become an Officer but I feel as though this decision was ridiculous. What are the chances of getting my waiver approved? I was thinking about getting character statements from all my former NOCIC's and including them in my rebuttle.
