    My son is in AFROTC, a junior. He has already passed his DODMERB physical. Over the Christmas break, he was in a car accident, hit from behind by a careless teenage driver. He was told today from his doctor, that he has a ruptured disc...he does not need surgery now but will need surgery sometime later in life. He absolutely wants to become an Air Force officer. Has this accident taken away his Air Force future? What should he do?

    If you have any questions regarding DoDMERB about policies, procedures, your specific case (I will have to verify who you are), or anything else, I am the DoDMERB official to provide you a response. I'm always available and in most cases, will respond immediately, but will respond within 24 hours on all cases.

    My email address is ALWAYS open. I'm the DoDMERB Bureaucrat Buster. Give me a chance:) Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil

    Now that I've been at this for a while, I "usually" log in late at night and several times throughout the weekend. The issue is the fact that this is not an "official" site and the USAF maintains a very high level of internet security. So, I can't access the site from work---I must log in from home.

    Thx in advance for your understanding, patience., and the opportunity to assist you
