Hello everyone. I am a active duty soldier that just applied for the ROTC ADO option for my graduate degree. I finished my dodmerb physical in December, and they found a thyroid nodule. I did all the tests and it is benign, I'm asymptomatic, and I don't need any medication and my TSH levels are normal, but I was told I would need a medical waiver. I am frustrated because according to the Army regulation 40-501 that we go off of, there is nothing in there that says a benign thyroid nodule is a disqualifier. My status says pending waiver submission/review. I am really hoping I get the waiver. I was wondering how hard is it for a person who is already serving to get a waiver since my medical condition clearly doesn't affect me or my training? I can deploy and do everything. I hope they take all of this in account when they are going over my paperwork.
