I just received my NROTC 4-year. I am now worried about the DoDMERB, I have Chiari malformation and NF both of which I have no symptoms of and never have. Because of the Chiari I was rated for life insurance so I know it will come up. Any advice?
What the military looks at isn't just current symptoms, but consequences of future ones. I have a friend that was in the Army and had NF (wasn't diagnosed until after commissioning since he didn't have any symptoms), but was then medically released due to it. His symptoms didn't interfere with his duty, but they still put him out. Not trying to be a downer, just want to explain that they definitely look beyond "I haven't had any symptoms."
