As many of you probably know, the DODMERB website has been down for over four weeks now. How is it that a website used by thousands and thousands of people can be down that long? I find this to unacceptable, but honestly, what do I know? I have heard that the Academies themselves use the website to aid them in the waiver process. Someone posted earlier asking a question to that effect: Larry Mullen responded with this: This is a perfectly adequate response, but it also sidestepped what I think is the real question. Has the DODMERB website being down for over four weeks effected the Academies ability to offer waivers? With the website being down, and waivers possibly delayed indefinitely, how do we know the Academies aren’t just offering appointments to people who aren’t seeking waivers? Then, later on, denying waivers to people who had conditional appointments because they have already filled the spots. I posted this thread in the DODMERB forum because I felt it was where it belonged after reading the DODMERB forum rules, but I understand if it is moved to the off topic forum. EDIT: I want to add that I have sincere respect for Mr. Mullen and I appreciate what he, and all of colleagues do for us every day. I am just frustrated that the website has been down for so long. I am sure they are doing their best and there is a very good reason why it has been down.
