DS's DoDMERB webpage says, among other things, "Correspondence - Single Disqualification...D004.00 - Orthodontic appliances". The USAFA applicant website says "Medical Status: Disqualified." We are aware that braces need to be off before candidates report for BCT. My question is, will the academies to which he is applying continue to process his application or is this a "show stopper" until he gets them off? Thank you.
