    My son is applying for Navy ROTC with the Marine option. He has been taking growth hormone since he was approximately 11 for size issues. He quit taking the growth hormone in May as he is now fully grown. He is now 70"" tall, an elite level high school athlete and has had no issues since stopping taking the drugs.

    I have seen this topic posted in several places but no definitive answer. Does this positively disqualify him or would he be considered remedial. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.

    Your best bet is to contact Mr. Mullen at Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil

    Give him the last 4 digits of your son's social security number. He will be able to give you an official response and great advice.

    Good luck!
