    I'm a cadet in Air Force ROTC and just received a medical disqualification due to a "history of mood disorder" (D232.10) which is pending waiver submission/review. About 6 years ago (during my junior year of high school) I was diagnosed with situational depression due to a number of factors (most notably a short-notice assignment my active duty Air Force dad got). I have been symptom- and medication-free for the past 4+ years.

    Before I got DQ'd I was competitive for an in-college scholarship, which I desperately need to continue college, and my board for Field Training is supposed to meet soon.

    I was wondering if anyone has any tips for how to resolve this issue quickly, what documents/records I should submit, any additional items (letters, recommendations, etc) I can/should submit, or any similar stories.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Chivp,

    You best best for any accurate answer is to contact Larry Mullen (contact info below). Check out the DoDMERB board and Mr. Mullen's sticky from July 2009.
