    Just want to clarify ----you can post private medical information regarding your seizures to a social network, but you can't send the information directly to the Deputy of the organization that would evaluate your medical exams for a Service Academy and/or ROTC programs? Hmmm OK

    Then I'm not the one to answer your question. Sorry.

    I HIGHLY suggest that you comply with Mr. Mullen. You will need to send out the SAME information upon application to a ROTC Scholarship/Service Academy.
    If you don't trust him, you will probably not get a good answer. You will definitely NOT get the BEST answer.

    I agree with Mr. Mullen and LTCDrill futuremarine.

    You're going to give your personal medical info anyways to DoDMERB, and Mr. Mullen is like deputy chief of DoDMERB, so you can rest assured your in good hands. I've e-mailed him several times about my previous condition with seizures(also) and he gives thorough and complete answers. Just look at the last part of his e-mail address- .mil. Sending him an e-mail about your condition will not affect your "private info." Anyway, your going to have to send all private info(as in ALL info regarding seizures) because you get remedialed if you have seizures, so it doesnt matter anyways. You be glad you e-mailed him. Hope that helps.
