    Is there any restriction for a USNA Candidate making a blood donation? DS brought home a parental consent form for donating blood at his HS tomorrow.

    Not that I know of. I have donated before and was never asked about it during my SA medical stuff (either in the medical history form or at my physical). Since donating blood doesn't negatively affect your health whatsoever, I really don't think DoDMERB cares. I think he'll be fine so long as the needle is sterile :thumb: :D
