    I am a junior in High School and am working towards participating in Army ROTC during college. In my sophmore year I had a reconstrucive surgery on my left knee that put me on crutches for 4 months. Due to a tumor on the underside of my knee cap and a hieghtened knee cap ridge, I had to have a knee surgery that took part of my hamstring and strung it through two holes in my knee cap to raise and secure my knee cap from "popping" out of its socket. I have been trying to get back in shape by running not more than a mile at a time. I am planning on still running to meet the physical fitness requirements. I am wondering if this injury will disqualify me for an Army ROTC scholarship or even Army ROTC participation.

    Please respond/help
