    My son was DQ for known back issues. After returning to DR who treated son, and showing criteria for DQ from DoD, DR said my son is fit, and should have no issue with any physical requirement of military service. Does DoDM ever reverse their decision from a second opinion DR?

    I assume this is for ROTC?? Has he been DQ'd and pending waiver review or has his waiver been denied? If pending review then your are still in the running and just need to wait like the rest of us. If waiver denied I would have your son get ahold of the ROTC contact at your school and ask about appealing the DQ. I cannot find any resources on appealing a DQ. Good luck.

    Since SA, send all medical info you have to DoDMERB, if your son is deemed competitive SA will request waiver of DQ. DoDMERB has no say in waivers. They are black and white, if your son has a history of back problems they will have to DQ and let the SA make the call. good luck
