So today I talked to a navy recruiter who visited my school to get information about NROTC. I talked with him, and called him after school to set up an interview. During the call, he asked if I take any medication, I told him I have an inhaler, and then he told me that I can't start the application because of it. He basically said they don't get people started if they have a prescription within the last 6 months, so he said that I have to wait 6 more months until I can call him back and start applying. The deal with my asthma is that I'm a runner in cross-country and track, and after my races in track(800m) I cough a lot. I just go into a coughing fit, not trouble breathing. I rarely have any problems during track practice or cross-country, it's only after I run an all out 800m for meets. I went to the doctor about 2 weeks ago and he prescribed me an inhaler for exercise-induced asthma. So it's not like I'm dependent on the inhaler, I can still run without it, it just helps with my coughing. Is there anything I can do to get passed this problem? Maybe get a note from my doctor or something? Is there any other parts of the application process I can do? I really want to apply as soon as I can because I want a better chance of getting the NROTC scholarship. If I have to wait 6 months, then I'll have to apply in October, and I don't not want to wait that long. Thanks for the help!
