Hi my name is John Lee and I was recently a cadet with AFROTC. I just got kicked out on tuesday because my detachment applied for a medical waiver and was denied. I served in AFROTC 2 years now and I received a field training slot this year but was not able to go and eventually disenrolled due to a an injury that has not been an issue since I was in middle school. which was almost 8 years. ago. DODMERB decertified my medical because of multiple should dislocations of the right shoulder. but i have gotten multiple doctors which include my orthopedic surgeon, an Air Force orthopedic surgeon, physical therapists, and my personal doctor to sign off and tell DODMERB that I am 100% good to go. AFROTC is my life. Serving my country has been a life long goal for me. there is nothing i want more than to be in this great country's military. there are people out there in our military going into it just for a job or just for the few years of experience. i am truly dedicated to the service and to this nation. i dont get how some doctors that have never met me, have never seen what i can do make a determination of what i am capable of. I want to fight for my country and serve beneath the stars and stripes with all my heart. I am passionate and dedicated to helping my country. for me AFROTC is my family and when they told me that i am no longer apart of that family it hurts. ive been fighting this with DODMERB for a year now and i dont know what to do anymore. i need help and i came across this website and saw that there are some people that can help. I am currently putting together a packet to send to my congressman and congresswoman to have a congressional hearing. and if that doesnt work my next and final option is to get surgery. but again i have not had a problem with my shoulder for almost 10 years and i feel that surgery would just weaken my shoulder and even getting the surgery is not a 100% guarantee of getting reinstated. so please anyone out here can you please help me and show me doors to walk through cause as of right now there is not one door open that i can see.
