    Hey everyone, I have sort of an odd situation but I was wondering if anyone has any helpful information. My commission was delayed after four years of AFROTC were completed due to a medical condition (Skull Fracture). I was told that due to the condition I am medically disqualified from commissioning until January 2014. I was supposed to commission May 2013. ROTC disenrolled me from the system This past week. Is there a way of keeping my enrollment or reactivating come January time free so that I can be commissioned through ROTC. I feel like after completing all the necessary requirements for the program that it seems unfair not to. I'm also pushing up an Exception to Policy package right now. Any insight would help. Thanks in advance

    I doubt anyone here can give you advice except to say work the system with your unit and Maxwell.

    Curious are you a 400 or a 700? You say you have completed 4 yrs of AFROTC, which to me would mean you are a 700, so basically they already extended your commission date by a yr., and now would be extending you again by another FY since Jan would be FY 15.

    Also the question is in Jan. 2014 will it still be a DQ, but with a chance of getting it waived or is it not a DQ? It might help your case.

    Sorry, I guess my brain was caught on the words May and Jan, not the yrs. (I.E. you changed majors; approved by HQ which delayed your graduation making you a 700, and thus it would be FY14 (May 14), and the Jan would make it FY15.

    Either way you still are moving into a different yr group FY14 than they had planned when they contracted you.

    What was your AFSC that you were selected for? Did you have a RNLTD before you got the skull fracture? If so was it after Jan 14? Many cadets are saying they are now being given a 6-9 month wait before the RNLTD.

    Just thinking out loud if the RNLTD was Jan., and you will not need a waiver after Jan. than I would think the odds look better for you.

    In the end you have to work the system. Maxwell is probably the best place to start seeing as it appears you are no longer in ROTC to figure out what exactly was placed in your official file.

    Have you asked this question over on www.baseops.net?

    No, I haven't. I found something in AROTCI 36-2011 (12 August 2013). Chapter 11.4.1.1.5. It mentions that if you're disenrolled for a medical disqualification that upon the resolution of the condition you can reapply for entry into the program. Am I interpreting this correctly?

    The exact same language is found in Chapter 3-16-c-3 of AR 145-1, with date of September 2011. http://www.apd.army.mil/pdffiles/r145_1.pdf

    I don't think anybody here can comment on that section's common interpretation other than current cadre: Clarkson or Marist.

    This guy is Air Force, so an Army Reg wouldn't pertain.

    He is looking at AFROTCI 36-2011 not AROTCI 36-2011.

    Funny

    That's funny that you mention that because i'm actually talking to my buddy about a situation similar to mine with two Clarkson air force cadets in the recent past
