I play football and have had three concussions and also have tmj (lock jaw) which I've heard is a disqualifier. In addition, I used to have asthma. So I'm wondering if I'll be able to pass the dodmerb physical or not.
Until you......

  • ...Take the physical examination;
  • ...Have your medical history reviewed;
  • ...Are disqualified;
  • ...Are unsuccessful at obtaining a waiver are still eligible.

Just this year, conditions that I NEVER would have thought "waiver-able" have been granted waivers.

Don't give up before you start, or your chance is 0%.

I'm moving this to the DODMERB board, where you're more likely to get an answer. Check with Larry Mullen -- he will have the answers you need and they're official.:thumb:
USNA 1985 is correct. Pls cut and paste your posting to me, along with your full name and last 4 of your SSN to We'll have a dialogue and I can answer your questions:thumb:
