Son #2 had labrium surgery in Jan 2010. Completed rehab, no issues. Has since played varsity football (2 years), made All-Area Defense Team in football (2 years), played varsity baseball (1 year), hunts, water skis, snow skis...no residual effects from the surgery. After the DoDMERB exam, he was listed as Remedial. We requested the required documents from the surgeon. It took over 4 weeks to receive them. Then we received a letter from DoDMERB requesting a letter from the surgeon stating that he had seen the DoDMERB letter. We contacted the surgeon's office for the letter. It has taken over 2 weeks to get the letter from the surgeon. Today, Son calls me because he has gone onto his USMA Candidate Portal and saw that on October 29 his status was changed to Disqualified. Could this be because it has taken so long for us to get the required paperwork/records submitted? As you can imagine, we are quite concerned. Son's applications are in for USMA, USNA, USCGA, and the Citadel. Four military schools...his choice. A DQ from DoDMERB will change all his options and plans. Any insight or advice as to what steps we need to take now to allow him continue to pursue his plans?
