It sucks being told that you can't do something when you know that you could have done it and that you would have given it everything you had. My Regional Commander called me today to inform me that the USMA doctors had denied my medical waiver. The news was crushing and likely means that other waiver authorities(ROTC) will likely also come to the same conclusion. I wasn't angry with the decision, as the standards are in place to keep others safe, but today was not an easy day for me. After a day of thinking, I'm starting to come around to the realization that my dream of serving as an officer may never be reached. RC told me that I could reapply for next year, but my conditions are not things that are going to get any better with time. I wish the best of luck to everyone else going through this process. I wish I could have attended the academy with you guys, but I'm sure I will find my own path elsewhere. I'd like to thank everyone on this forum for their support and knowledge in this process. This forum is a goldmine of information and upcoming candidates are lucky to have it.
