    my fiancé has a perforated eardrum. She is in her third week of Air Force basic training. Right now they just found it and put her in medical hold. She told them about the problem at the beginning and nothing else was said out of it. Did somebody miss it? What will happen to her now that she is in medical hold? She had surgeries to correct it but all the attempts failed. The hole in her ear still is there. any advice is appreciated. She just submitted a waiver yesterday.

    Mj, you will probably not get the response here you were hoping for. This forum is geared toward those seeking advice on service academies, SMC and ROTC. The medical requirements (DoDMERB) for officers are a little different than those for enlisted (MEPS). I would encourage you to find an Air Force enlisted forum and they may have some folks there with better information. I'm sure you fiancée is heartbroken. Best of luck to you both.

    MJ, we probably cannot help you here, and it would not be in your best interest, no in fiancee"s, for us to speculate.
