My son is a new cadet at USMA. We experienced R day and the oath ceromony. My younger son(15) was so impressed his first statement when we got home was " I wish I could go to West Point" It broke my heart knowing that his chances were slim to none because he is a Type 1 Diabetic. Does anyone know if there has ever been a waiver given for Diabetes. Its a shame because with todays technology his condition is pretty well controlled. He runs track and is on the High School baseball team. He is just as athletic if not more so than my older boy but his condition disqualifies him. Any suggestions.
