    My son just received a remedial letter requesting a testing for allergy in peas. He had a reaction when he ate peas but that was just one time. The test will determine (which is a blood work) if he has a high level of IGE. He ate almost everything from eggs, to seashells to peanuts but no reaction. I have caled the recommended facility that will perform the remedial but they do not do the particular test and have to find another facility. In short, I am waiting for them to let us know when and where to go and my son is running short in time. We heard that the FINAL Board meets in March 1. If everything goes well with his medical, do you think that my son's file will be included in the next Board Review. Thank you so much and this question is directly related to DODMERB. Appreciate any insights.

    Just a couple of things. First, DODMERB does the process. Contact them about what you need to do to get the information to them. Second, my DD is awaiting a waiver due to shoulder surgery from USNA and NROTC and has the waiver from AFA. In all three cases the respective "admissions" officers specifically stated the board does not look at medical status when determining whether to offer an appointment or scholarship. If they decide your DS is competitive the commisioning source (SA or ROTC) work the waiver, if needed. Don't let the process scare you. Contact DODMERB and the respective source now to let them know what you are working and they will help you.
