    My son cleared all of the hurdles and received a USMMA conditional acceptance based on the outcome of a DoDMERB/BUMED waiver review.
    Background: My son is a runner and had some foot pain. We had two orthopedists look at him and we had surgery to fix his foot over a year ago. He recovered quickly and today is a stronger runner than before. BUT...BUMED reviewed his file and Disapproved it!
    So how can we appeal this? He's physically strong today, and wants to run for USMMA. So how or whom can we contact to appeal? His file did go all the way up to the Surgeon General for review, but no one actually, physically "saw" him for this specific issue. Is it possible to have him looked at by a Navy doc and get that consult used to overturn the waiver? Need to appeal NLT 4/16!
    How can we overcome this? Any help is greatly appreciated!
    thanks
