    I have self harm scars on one forearm and one thigh from 8+ years ago. It's obvious what it is so I'm being honest and up front about it. My recruiter said I need to get a medical clearance letter from a psychologist to submit with my medical. I've found a doctor that is willing to help me, but...

    So I was dqd from DoDMERB with Airforce ROTC and the waiver was denied as well now all I can hope for is the rebuttal. Now is enlisting going to be the same too? I talked to a recruiter and they had no idea what DoDMERB even is and told me they use MEPS so I'm hoping if DoDMERB prevents me from...

    Air National Guard Disqualifying Factor Confusion

    I had an over-the-phone interview with a recruiter for the AF National Guard and I said yes to having taken medication, and he said it was a disqualifying factor. He continued with if I want to move forward, then we will, or I can think about it and call back. He also said I would have to...

    MEPS and DoDMERB

    I'm sure you are all fed up with these posts, but my recruiters are clueless (as expected).
