My DS applied to USMA and AROTC. He received a 4yr scholarship to AROTC and is considered to be a top candidate for USMA. He checked today to insure his Physical Fitness Results were posted but instead found "DISQUALIFIED" in big red letters on his portal. He called Dodmerb and spoke to his technician. The technician checked his file and confirmed he was disqualified for "patella femoral pain syndrome". I have reviewed my DS's medical file and no where in that file is there any diagnosis of any "patella femoral pain syndrome". He visited my orthopedist almost a year ago, one time because as a Cross Country Runner he was having some tightness after seven or eight straight days of running 6 miles. We wanted to make sure nothing was wrong. The doctor examined him and pronounced him fit to keep running, just advised him to stretch out better prior to running. He took the advice, continues to run distance, has never had surgery or a diagnosis of trouble yet Dodmerb disqualified him. How can this happen? This young man still runs 4 miles daily, yet Dodmerb says NO GOOD! Help, does this happen often?
