My son took his DODMERB exam a couple of weeks ago and we just received notification that he has failed it because, while he passed all of the medical tests, he was determined to be colorblind. I am also colorblind so it is not a huge surprise that he has inherited this trait, but it was a significant surprise that this was considered a failing disability. On the notification that DODMERB sent, they said that this was not necessarily a disqualifying situation and that we could request a waiver from USNA. Unfortunately, this is all they told us which raises more questions than anything else. So, can anyone help me with answers to the following? 1) Does anyone know the process for applying for the waiver that DODMERB mentions? 2) Does anyone know about the success rate associated with granting of these waivers in both general and the specific circumstance of colorblindness? Thanks. Things are pretty anxious for us right now so any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.
