DS took DoDMERB exams 6-28-11 and passed (DoDMERB determined DS Qualified for USNA “as of 07 July 2011”). He is now a USNA Foundation sponsored prep at NMMI aiming for appointment to USNA Class of ’17 which will be inducted on 6-27-13 – one year and 364 days following his DoDMERB exams! DoDMERB only requires an “Administrative Remedial” now – no doctor’s appointment, rather a Present Health Questionnaire to be filled out by DS and sent to DoDMERB.DoDMERB exams are valid for 2 yrs.
Makes sense! So specifically - does USNA I-Day = XXROTC contracting date in the case of the DoDMERB when-to-when question? If that's the case, DS just will make the DoDMERB expiration date by one day! And that's cutting it close...It doesn't matter that the exam was valid when they accepted the scholarship May of their sr yr in HS. It doesn't matter that they were in AFROTC as a freshman in college. It doesn't matter the date it was written. What matters is when they went to contract, the exam was no longer valid, because it passed the 2 yr date from when the exam was given.
2 yrs is to contracting.
If you are trying to enlist in the National Guard your DODMERB physical is irrelevant. You will go to MEPS and have a physical there.I was in AFROTC and was medically disqualified for sleep apnea in February for March of 2011. I was not a contracted cadet. I have graduated and wanted to join the national guard but I am not sure if my record is still in the system that says i have sleep apnea.
