    My son is applying for an ROTC scholarship. In looking forward to a possible future DODMERB physical, we have some concerns. We know he has a potential DQ due to an earlier minor mental health issue from several years back. He had some generalized anxiety issues during the 8th-9th grade. He saw a therapist during 8th to 9th grade every week, and improved to the point where he had just a few visits in 10th grade and ceased seeing the therapist six months ago. He was prescribed anti-anxiety medications but never filled the prescription. He has been very successful in academics, sports, and leadership roles since then. Would it make sense for us to have the therapist write a letter about my S’s successful treatment to take to his DODMERB physical? Or should we just wait and plan to provide such information as part of the waiver process? My natural inclination is to be proactive since, from reading the forum, it seems likely he’ll need a waiver for this issue.
