    Hello, I was notified today that the Naval Academy has sent my name to the contractor who conducts the medical exam. Once I take the physical exam for Navy, will they also send my results to Air Force and West Point? Thank you.

    The one exam is good for all the SAs and ROTC. Remember all DoDMERB does is Q or DQ. If you need a waiver the commissioning source itself will issue the waiver. So each SA or each branch of ROTC you apply to will have to issue that.

    Here is a situation. Today, I went in with the Son to get his DoDMERB Physical (he's a minor). A nurse took all of the vitals and measurements, did the hearing test, made him read the paragraph and took him down the hall to the other Exam Room where the Doctor came in check him over thoroughly. The Dr was astounded he had no scars, tats, and absolutely nothing checked as "Yes" where I then quipped 'yup he's a freak of nature, all right'. He has 20/20 from Optical test the Day before, his hearing was perfect, ect. + the kid is almost 6'8" at 215 lbs. and a D1 recruited WP athlete. The doctor signed the forms, said 'go ahead and get dressed, I'll be right back'. 15 Minutes later, still no Dr, but a Nurse came in and said "ok, you can leave"

    Great ! We left went to lunch, my kid was just pumped! Me too.

    When we got home I re-read the DoD stuff and saw they did not do any Urine Dip stick test! I called the place the Nurse said it is 'not needed'.

    What do you folks think or know? I'm sure if he gets in they will sure give him a real urine test sent to a Lab + Blood work before they let him near I-Day?

    Any thoughts?

    Jeez, I just found the answer! I didn't see untill after I posted that there is a whole forum on the DoDMERB!

    Apparently, the dip test is not always required. Some folks took it, others did not.

    It appears that it is conditional per the opinion of the examining Doctor at the time of the Exam as to if you get it or not.
