Back in December, I was planning on enlisting in the Air Force but was disqualified for having "dry skin," on my shoulder. It was winter in Chicago and I hadn't put any lotion on, but I just couldn't fathom why my extremely minor ashy-ness could get me disqualified. I had no diseases (eczema, psoriasis, infections, etc.) but still I was disqualified. Regardless, I decided to continue to pursue the military and started looking at the Army. So I bought some regular lotion and applied it a couple of times, then took a visit to a Army guard base and received a physical from the base physician clearing me for enlistment. I also went to a civilian dermatologist who assured me that I had nothing wrong with my back and she even mentioned that her skin was probably dryer than mine. Now a few months later, I applied and received a federal 4 year scholarship from the Army and will be headed to the scheduled DoD MERB physical next week. On the Army ROTC scholarship website, under my application it says that "no waivers are required," for me, but I'm still unsure of what will happen at the doctors office. My question is this, will my enlisted Air Force disqualification from MEPS have any affect on my Army ROTC tenure, will I need a waiver even though it's through a different branch, will my MEPs record be checked by the DoD MERB, and since I admitted to being disqualified by the Air Force on the DoD MERB pre-screen, will I run into problems just because of that? I've been checking forums with cases of guys getting Dq'd for a while and have yet to find one where the reason for disqualification was as seemingly inappropriate as mine. Thank's for helping me out! ALSO If I do need a waiver, could I get it from any Army doctor? The Army doctor who conducted my second physical at the guard base told me that he would be willing to write me a waiver, but since it was Air Force he couldn't.
