Hi, I am an National Army ROTC Scholarship Winner My Status on the DoDMERB Page is Currently: Status:Pending Waiver Submission/Review I was DQ'd for D174.80 Renal calculus (Had a single Kidney Stone in September-October 2013) Prior to applying for Army ROTC I did research on Kidney Stones and Joining to see what I was facing prior to applying. What I read was: (Army Regulation 40–501, 2-15) "h. Current or history of urolithiasis (592) within the preceding 12 months does not meet the standard. Recurrent calculus, nephrocalcinosis, or bilateral renal calculi at any time, does not meet the standard" D174.80 seems to add "or history of urolithiasis requiring surgical treatment or hospitalization" (I was hospitalized and had a stent placed in so surgery). (All Hospital records were sent to DoDMERB) So I was wondering if that was a DoD Policy that superseded the Army Regulation.... and if so would that Army Regulation benefit me in terms of the waiver since that is done by Cadet Command & not DoDMERB. Should I just contact DoDMERB to clarify? Thank you for your responses ahead of time.
