    Our son has flat feet and uses some over-the-counter shoe inserts for his arches. He is currently a sophomore, and his feet are still growing. He plays football, runs track and is very active without pain/discomfort.

    Will he be DQ'd from attending a service academy or accepting an ROTC scholarship?

    Many thanks

    Flat feet alone isn't a DQ...there have been past threads on here about it, and I've read them all because I too have flat feet. According to past threads, the DoDMERB docs will just evaluate his feet and make a note of it, but that's about it.
