My son received LOA in Nov and nomination in December. As part of the medical questionnaire, he answered yes to the question on recurrent headache. Based on this reply, he was disqualified and denied a waiver. Interesting that the disqualification notice says recurrent headache within last 3 years interfering with normal function. If the original question had been worded as such, he would have answered no as at no time was his normal function impacted. We have sent letters from the neurologist that saw him 15 months ago, which says his headaches did not interfere with normal function and had a second evaluation done by another neurologist that concluded everything is fine today and in his opinion the previous headaches were benign. We have been in contact with the USNA doc in the medical office and he said today we are at the end of the road. Any advice you can provide is appreciated.
