My son is 17 and is trying to enlist in the Navy. He was medically discharged his first round of MEPS because he mentioned that he hurt his shoulder during a Freshman football game and wears prescribed inserts on occasion for high insteps. We were told to get release letters from his doctors in order to continue with the process. We sent in the letters and he was rescheduled to begin the process again. He scored a 71 on his asvab and then he had to go back a separate time to to continue the medical. We were told the medical clearance would be quick and he would likely get sworn in the same morning. Now we are told that he has to apply for a waiver for his inserts and high insteps. I am so nervous for him. Could he actually be disqualified for having high insteps even though he is active and healthy?
