    Does the USCG follow the Dodmerb steps or do they evaluate differently.If so,when does it come up on the application?Also,if deemed qualified for the other academies thru Dodmerb does that mean you qualified for USCG?

    If you are qualified by DoBMERB for one then you are qualified for all. Where it starts to get tricky is when waivers get involved. One SA or ROTC branch may waive and others not. Think orthopedic for Army and color blindness for Navy and AF. You will never know unless you try. Best of luck.:thumb:

    it is possible to be DQed for a condition for one service and that same condition not be a DQ for another service, but I imagine it is uncommon. An example is color vision deficiency. Depending on severity, the services have differing standards.

    Actually JMS, I believe sheriff is correct. IF you are DQ'd for one branch, you are DQ'd for every branch. It is the source that determines waivers. DoDMERB goes by a set of regulations set forth by the DoD, not by each branch.

    The tricky thing about CG is they belong not the DoD, but to Homeland, so it maybe different in that case. LITS would be the go to person for that question.

    If you want to look it up there are some differences noted for the sea going services. I believe they all relate to vision.

    Edit: Skimming through the directive this is all I am seeing:
