Our DS had his optometric exam in late July and his medical exam on Aug 1. The medical exam was a real surface skimmer - only took 20 mins, very brief, and everything seemed okay to my DS. Nothing seemed to be out of sorts. No labwork (blood) was ordered, just a pee test. His medical history is pretty clear - no ongoing health issues, just eyeglasses and typical baby/toddler colds and flus. Today we see that a Remedial is being requested. Is it normal for a Remedial to be requested for a generally healthy young man with hardly any medical history events to speak of? Also, is it normal for DoDMERB to declare somebody military qualified without running any blood tests?
