Help crafting a letter

Hi all! My physicians and I are kind of stuck with how to craft an eloquently written letter to submit as supplementary material for my waiver? My DQ's are:
History of head injury with associated post injury manifestations
History of adjustment disorder
Myopia - refractive error greater than -8.00 diopters (spherical equivalent)
*My actual eyesight is -6.00 diopters, and according to multiple doctors I do not have an adjustment disorder, so my NROTC recruiter and my doctors want to fix that asap!*
My NROTC recruiter and I are slightly nervous that I'll lose my NROTC scholarship due to these errors. Thanks in advance!
The documentation does not need to be eloquent. It needs to be the facts. If you have multiple recent eye exams have the doctors report the results and the method use to make their determination. For the head trama review the medical standard around page 44 and have the doctor craft the letter focus on the standard. Adjustment disorder is on page 47. Per a previous post you said you were misdiagnosed. Have your physician address the symptoms you had and why they believe you were misdiagnosed.

You may be best to find a physician with military experience. They may be better at addressing the key points that DoDMERB wants to evaluate. Another option is DoDMERB Consultants. It is a for fee service that may be better equiped to help you navigate the process. (have never used them and I have no affiliation with them.) **LINK REMOVED**
