    I am in my final year of ROTC and supposed to commission soon. I have received 3 years of scholarship but am on medical determination now.

    I had two knee surgeries a few months ago and have a lot of problems. I do not think I will be able to ever run again.

    My question is will i be forced to pay back all of my scholarship money? I passed all the initial physicals and never had knee pain before joining the program.

    If it is determined I sustained knee damage from the military training then does it fall on them?

    It should. There is a cadet in my battalion (now former MS4) who has completed LDAC, but the Army has determined he will not be able to commission due to the condition of his knees. He will not be required to pay back his schooling. I'd say start talking with your CoC.

    thanks for the info. I have been talking to my CoC and I am on a medical determination. I have attended LTC and LDAC but my knee is a chronic problem and isn't going to get any better according to my doctor.

    Your situation may end like the former cadet I know, sadly. Granted, I do not know all of the details to either situation so my words are pure speculation. I wish you the best of luck.
