    My DS goes to OCS The second part of the summer. I have tried to find out if he has to take his physical again but I'm not coming up with a definitive answer. He says no but I am not convinced. He took the DODMERB as a freshman before he was awarded his scholarship. From my understanding, it is good for two years. He is in the NROTC, Marine option. They have to periodically update their medical profile and he says that serves instead of him having to take the complete physical again.

    My question is, will he need to do the DODMERB again before he heads off to OCS?

    No Sampia, he will not have to go through DODMERB prior to OCS.

    Thank you so much! I am relieved. It was stressful enough the first time around even though he passed without any problems. I just had visions in my overactive imagination of something coming up and him not being able to complete his path of becoming an officer in the Marine Corps.
