    USNA/NROTC Asthma Waiver Granted

    I was requested to take the methacholine challenge as a remedial in my DoDMERB portal. USNA requested the challenge a couple weeks after the official disqualification from DoDMERB. I was able to get it scheduled through DoDMERB's contractor shortly after it was requested.
