    My son just got a remedial for his hearing on his DoDMERB physical.
    He retested adn had a result of Evidence of hearing loss in the speech range on his right ear.
    The results showed that at 500Hz he tested at 35 dB. At all other ranges in both ears he was between 5 and 20 dB.
    Is the 35 dB with in standards for acceptance to West Point?
    He already has a letter of Assurance.
    If not will it be wavierable?
    I am open to suggestions how he should proceed on this issue.
    Thanks,
    Father - 2013 candidate

    What you described below would NOT meet medical accession standards at 500 Hz. Pls send your posting and my response to me at Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil. Give me his full name and Last 4 of his SSN and we will have him retested.:thumb:
