My son received an LOA followed by an Offer of Appointment to the USNA in December of 2010 which he proudly accepted. On March 1, 2011 he had a Grade 2.5 shoulder separation and immediately reported the incident to the academy, as instructed, and was put on medical hold. He saw an orthopedic surgeon who advised a course of rest and physical therapy. After completion he was deemed fully recovered and allowed 100% full activity with no restrictions. We faxed all the requested medical information to DoDMERB on April 22, 2011 (X-ray reports, Physician & Physical Therapist final evaluations) and he has now received a letter stating that he does not meet the DoD medical standards. DoDMERB has informed us that his file has been forwarded to USNA for a medical waiver. We are confused at the initial determination as the evaluations stated that he is 100% recovered with no limitations. We are also very concerned as I day is June 30, 2011 and are not sure if the timing of his review will allow him to receive the necessary approvals to report. Where do we go from here? Your assistance would be very much appreciated.
