  • Mr Mullen,
    When my son was in middle school he experienced mild symptoms of exercised induced asthma. To be on the safe the doctor prescribed an inhaler, which my son rarely used so the doctor removed it from his health chart and marked the condition as “resolved”. Since the condition was marked “resolved” before he turned 13, will this cause an issue with his DODMERB exam?
    Good Afternoon Sir, If you could please explain this

    DOD INSTRUCTION 6130.03

    k. Current hypothyroidism unless asymptomatic and demonstrated euthyroid by normal
    thyroid stimulating hormone testing within the preceding 12 months. Do I have to have 12 months of blood work to show TSH levels normal or at least one blood work results showing normal TSH in the last 12 months? With Medication.

    I apologize beforehand sir for my ignorance but I didn't quite understand the last reply. Does mean I can join one of the military branches with my hypothyroidism control medication and without having symptoms and I do not need to show blood work or that I am disqualified from joining because I have hypothyroidism? Sorry I just want to know before I step foot in a recruiter office.Thank you

    I stand corrected!!!!! I was looking at the new retention standard.

    Yes 12 months of normal TSH testing on medication
    I tried searching it to no avail. Are you the person who posts the updates of DODMERB appointments by SA? Last update I saw USNA was still at 0

    OK😁
    Mr. Mullen
    My son was DODMERB cleared in Nov 2017 on a waiver to Attend AFA. He was a AFA Preppie class of 2019. Half way thorugh he made the difficult decision to leave and transfer to a Civillian College. He received recommendations from the AFA Leadership to continue on his pursuit of earning his Commission.

    Thank you so much. He said he was able to send an email between classes. I will let him know to watch his email later. I think he is currently in his MSIII class now :) Your guidance and assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Dr. Mullen, my rising senior has an IEP for ADD and has not been on medication for over 4 years though he has taken advantage of testing accommodations. Is there a possibility he can receive a waiver for a ROTC scholarship or is his condition a non-starter? Tough situation as both his older brothers were awarded scholarships...thanks in advance!

    Hello Mr. Mullen,
    I am new here and have tried to read all of the prior threads. My question is defiantly a rookie one. My daughters DODMERB appointment is this week. My question is regarding ER visits. Hers were minor ( sprained ankle treated with ice etc ). Do I need to get records of this for her appointment ? Thank you.
    M
    MullenLE
    1. The only thing she needs for her appointments are a copy of the medical history she completed on line needs to be printed and brought with her to the exam.
    2. You need to google "DoDMERB;" Hit "Questions on the Process;" You need to read paragraph 4........
    3. Your daughter needs to read the rest of the document :wiggle:

    Mr. Mullen,

    I just completed my eye exam and was wondering how long it will take for the status of DODMETS to change from INCOMPLETE to COMPLETE and on DODMERB "awaiting receipt of the initial exam"? Thank you!
    Mr Mullen

    Question about recent "swimmers shoulder." Many laps in the pool coming up to prepare for varsity swim team. CFA coming up (affects my basketball throw). Icing between workouts. Hesitant to create a Dodmerb issue by going to doctor if I'm just sore. May I email you privately with details? Thanks for all you do. Regards
    Mr. Mullen I am preparing to submit a waiver for the Navy and I was hoping we could talk in private. I was hoping to gather more information that would be helpful for my waiver

    Thank you so much for your help, I successfully took my exam!
    We spoke via emails a few months back. Trying to switch to Air Force because of odd recruiter issues. Received navy waiver and MEPS clear prior to switching.
    1. Childhood adhd at 10 but not issue. College BA GPA=3.85 in international affairs and Russian
    2. Minor ocd. Off meds and haven’t seen anyone for 3-4 years. Completely cured. Doctor recommends military in letter as okay
    3. Lasik. Good eyes.

    Because of word count, I can’t include more in a single post. But is it possible for me to receive a waiver for the Air Force?

    I received a waiver from MEPS for navy. Can I receive one for Air Force?

    MullenLE
    Send a comprehensive email to Lawrence.e.mullen.civ@mail.mil; provided complete name and last 4; I assume you're talking about enlistment, but I don't know???; What university did you graduate from and when? What was/were :wiggle: the the MEPS DQ(s) that Navy waived?

    Okay, I went ahead and emailed you. I will wait to hear back :) thank you for your time.
    Mr. Mullen,

    My son sent you an email today to get some clarification on the Asthma questionnaire for the medical history survey. His name is Jonathan Blake. Last four 1902. His history with those issues dates back to when he was a young child and he had an allergy test, but he has not had issues associated with those conditions since he was very young. Thank you.

    No response necessary. Your son will tell you why:rofl::tank1::bounce1: :zip:
    Does my son take his medical records with him to his medical exam on Monday, or do we send them to DoDMERB? Or both? Do we wait until his status is reported? We are pretty sure he’ll need review for an eye injury that occurred in December. We have gotten his records already.
    Son is concerned about tree nut allergy. Never used epi pen, never hospitalized for allergy. Was discovered after eating walnuts and had itchy watery eyes and lips tingling. He has answered yes to allergy question but is concerned about being able to get waiver. Only documentation is a blood test done by family doctor showing different nuts he is allergic to.
    Mr. Mullen,
    I’ve been trying to get cleared by DoDMERB for AFROTC; I keep getting DQ'd for "asthma." I've taken a pulmonary function test, passed. I've taken a methacholine challenge test, passed. The doctors said my lung capacity was above average, which is written in the clinical notes sent for review. Is there anything you can do to help me get cleared?
    Very Respectfully,

    Mr.Mullen ,
    My husband has non rheumatic mitral regurgitation . (Heart murmur) he found out about in college when he played football . It’s been roughly 4 years since he received that diagnosis . It never affected his ability to play sports. Is this completely disqualifying or would he possibly eligible for a waiver?
    Mr. Mullen,
    Good evening. I have a question regarding DoDMERB qualified status for ROTC vs USNA. My DS was awarded 4-YR AROTC and NROTC-MO Scholarships for Fall 2020 (Class of 2024). He is DodMERB qualified for both and is now considering applying to the USNA for the Class of 2025. Would his qualification status transfer over to the USNA during his application process? Thanks again for all you do
