    Let me state first off this is for a friend, and they are looking for an IS scholarship, thus, right now they are not in the system.

    The child in question just had a knee surgery and wants to go AF, specifically flying.

    The parents fear that they will not be able to get a waiver.

    Is there an up down decision for knee reconstruction surgery?

    Does it require waivers?

    If so, do you have 2 levels? I.E. flying and non-flying?

    Again, this is not an issue they can just send their last 4 digs to look into their record since they have yet to go through DodMERB.

    I'm no expert, and of course every case is different but here's something that may be of help: My cousin was appointed to USAFA a few years ago, and he had a serious knee injury playing high school football. He had surgery on it, and eventually recovered from the injury. I assume he was either not DQ'd or received some waiver for it.

    PIMA - The correct answer is have them email me directly with the details of their issue. The generalities of what's stated below is unanswerable. I can assist better if they email me directly:thumb:
