Just about one year ago, after my son was awarded a 3yr AD AROTC scholarship, he had an ear ache. I turned out that he had a 'pot hole' type problem in his ear canal right next to the ear drum. This was repaired surgically in April, and he has been going to many doctors appointments ect while it heals. He had his final appointment in December, and all the paperwork has been sent in. According to his Doctor he has 0 hearing loss (has had several hearing tests), and his hearing is 100%. The problem is fixed and in the doctor's opinion will not return. He has no restrictions at all. He participated in ROTC for his first semester without any restrictions, and is participating this semester also. The DODMERB site just updated to day with AROTC Waiver Denied. Can anyone give any guidance on where to go from here? Is this the end of the road or can he appeal that decision in any way?
