  • In reviewing DODI 6130.03, DD FORM 2807-2. I understand that waiver condition based on the PULHES code. Considering I am NOT targeting special operations, pilot, or deep sea diving, my question is; Where is a good reverence on PULHES codes for the Navy Reserve for acceptance into an Academy or NROTC?

    I just received a nomination.
    Greetings Mr. Mullen,

    I've read that you may be able to help my DS. He took his DoDMERB physicals back in early October, but hasn't heard anything from anyone, and his status for all three academies is still "Incomplete". I know that DoDMETS/DoDMERB must be overwhelmed right now, especially with COVID-19 complicating things, but we're all worried that DS' paperwork got lost in the shuffle.

    Thank you.
    Good evening,

    Completed DODMERB exams in September (9/23 eye exam, 9/30 physical). DODMETS says "currently being reviewed by a CIV team case manager". Is this the norm in your professional opinion? I will continue checking daily.
    Sir, I applied to two rotc scholarship. I had a cleft lip and palate which resulted in a speech impediment. Do you think this could medically disqualify me.
    Mr. Mullen, I am a Service Academy Applicant who is trying to get some documents to my technician for processing and I have sent her three emails in the last week and have not heard from her. Is there anything you’re able to do? Maybe get in contact with her to see if she’s working on it? Technian is Ms. Phyllis Gladden
    Mr. Mullen, my son took the medical exam on September 18 and the eye exam on October 6. The eye exam has been marked as received, but on the DoDMERB-DMACS website it reads "Awaiting Receipt of Initial Medical Exam." My son called and emailed the CIVTeam but has not heard back. Can you help? Respectfully appreciate your assistance.

    Mr. Mullen, could I talk to you about an exam issue? I took my medical exam at the beginning of the month and my optometrist exam a week ago but neither have been submitted and I have not been receiving responses from Concorde. Thank you

    I have a question from a friend of mine who is applying to a service academy:

    Mr. Mullen,

    I'm a Senior in New York applying to the Air Force and Naval Academies. During my Freshman year of high school, I saw a counselor between the months of October through January 2017 for family issues. During the-

    What advice can you give my friend?

    The advice I can give your friend is: send me an email to Lawrence.e.Mullen.civ@mail.mil; ask me the questions himself/herself; have he/she tell me why he/she are asking the questions? What is he or she applyting to? have they already applied? If so, provide me complete name and last 4 SSN :wiggle:

    Good morning sir,
    I have been recently having trouble with the website regarding a medical examination packet that I need to download. I have already scheduled all of my appointments, but the exam packet download does not seem to work.
    I found your email around the forums and sent you my full name and ssn a bit ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Have a nice day!
    Mr. Mullen,
    My son filled out DoDMERB medical history form submitted and got cleared with a waiver for latent TB. I was clearing old files going through all our medical files. My son forgot to add an ER visit for nosebleed in middle school (classmate accidentally hit his nose while playing ball). What should he do? Will this be problem? Thanks!
    Good Day Sir, My son USAFA medical status is showing “Qualified” but the USMA status is showing “scheduler forwarded to Dodmerb”. Is it possible that Dodmerb submit the results to USMA and USNA as well?

    Will do, Thank you!
    Hello sir, I was researching some things about Dodmerb on the forum and found your profile. I recieved an LOA from USMA and was wondering if color deficiency will need a waiver or disqualify me. During my eye exam I did not do well on the ishihara plate test.
    Deputy Chief Mullen sorry to bug you. Our son communicated with DODMERB on his minor foot Injury. He sent his personal statement doctor's initial note X-ray MRI doctor's final note 6 weeks after the injury that cleared him for all activities.
    15 days later he got another request for more information-he sent his personal statement again. Today email came in to wait another 15 days. Is he missing something? Thank you.

    STOP Please: I already received an email from your son. I can't be responding to two folks regarding one applicant. :wiggle:
    Mr Mullen,
    Are these medical codes waiverable for admission to USNA or Westpoint or the military in general?

    D153.00Current or history of any abnormality of the retina, choroid, or vitreous
    D155.40Distant visual acuity that does not correct to an acceptable standard

    Google "DoDMERB;"
    Hit "Questions on the Process;"
    "If" you meet the criteria in paragraphs 11-12, then paragraphs 15-19 and 22 apply :wiggle:

    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

    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!
