Head Injury

When I was 10.5 years old, I received a laceration to my head. I received 3 staples which were removed a week or two later. I did not receive a concussion, loose consciousness, or suffer as a result of the injury. What will DoDMERB probably do in my case?
RetNavyHM will be able to answer your question when he logs on next.

If it was a simple laceration then there shouldn't be any problems. If you check yes on the medial history form for history of head injury, DoDMERB will send you a head injury questionnaire, fill it out and there should be no problems from that stand point.
I did what you advised right after I posted. That is exactly what DoDMERB said. They just need documentation. Thanks.
