    As parents, we were sure that our son filled in his medical history as accurately as possible.
    In 2003 he contracted a rash due to not cleaning his hockey equipment. Was prescribed OTC medication. No follow up required.
    Now he has been rejected for Marine Corps NROTC for this history.

    The letter states that additional information can be forwarded.
    But to whom? Should we have a new examaniation to show he has nothing?
    We have already supplied the orignial exam notes from 2003

    Forward any additional information regarding this to DoDMERB. I would include any physicians notes, as well as have your son write a letter explaining the circumstances surrounding the issue and what treatments he received. Also have him explain how it affected his activities, if at all.

    thanks to both!
    We have scheduled exams with a dermatologist to show he is without problems.

    If you provide me your posting, your son's full names and last 4 of his SSN, in an email to Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil, I can give you a better read of what the issue is. If you send in the next several hours, I'll respond this evening. Standing by.....:thumb:

    Thank you Mr. Mullen

    But Mr. Mullen fixes that.

    Thanks again
