Hello, My son had an AFROTC scholarship taken away due to a peanut allergy. He wrote letters to DoDMERB explaining that he has (accidentally) ingested peanuts and food cooked in peanut oil, without issues. Additionally, I wrote to local, state, and national politicians asking for their help. Long story short, the disqualification remained in place. My son would like to serve in the armed forces and has heard from some of his friends in various ROTC programs that he may be eligible to serve in the reserves. Do the reserves have any different requirements with respect to peanut allergies? I know that over the years some of the other requirements have been relaxed, to the point where even minor criminal records are not a problem(!). Does my son have a chance of getting into the reserves, or should he resign himself to not being able to serve. Any help that you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you.
