Hi! I intend on enrolling in Army ROTC this Fall as a freshman. I already started my dodmerb as I was initially applying to USMA, but I have a DQ for my right ear. I can only hear 25% ish in it, but my other ear makes up for it and meets Army regulations, according to my ear surgeon who did some research. I also have a letter from her, stating this. It seems I cannot find any clear answers, as the dodmerb physical deemed me medically disqualified on that end. I also have a physical anomaly on my right ear- it's very minor now, just a little thicker than my left after plastic surgery. But dodmerb claims it will "restrict the wearing of headgear", which I cannot believe. Does anyone have experience in dealing with hearing or (slight) physical anomaly DQs? ROTC is my future and I don't know what I would do if I couldn't get a waiver. I've done AFJROTC and played contact sports in high school, and overall gone through everything with no problems.
