    Hello,
    I just have a few questions regarding the medical standards to join the military...i am looking into the AFROTC program and wanting to get a in-college scholarship for Nursing since im pursing my degree in BSN. But i am afraid that i might not be qualified due to some defects...one, i have an undescended testicle, i already got this checked by a doctor and they will probably refer me for sugery, so if they take out the testicle that has not descended is this an automatic DQ? second "maybe" i have an inguinal hernia, as what my MD said...is this another possible DQ? what if i get these defects fixed before getting examined by DoDMERB, will i have a better chance of getting the scholarship and getting commissioned later..i really want to serve this great country as an AF Nurse...thanks in advance for your help...

    Send your posting to me at Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil. I'm scheduled for jury duty tomorrow, but I'll reply within 48 hours of receipt. I can assist you better from there.:thumb:
