Hello. My son received (earned) a Air Force ROTC scholarship to attend Embry-Riddle University. On his second day at the school, he received notification that his request for a medical waiver for his peanut allergy was refused. The ROTC office wasted no time in telling him that his scholarship was now gone. Needless to say, he was devastated. I have called Dodmrb and was told that the peanut allergy was considered a severe allergy, and that is why the waiver request was refused. Meanwhile, I know of many cadets at West Point and even active Army personnel that currently have peanut allergies. I have written to all of my congresspeople, the Vice President, and the President. Thinking that the Army may be more receptive to a waiver, we are trying to get the Army ROTC at the school to process another waiver request. Can you suggest anything that my son or I can do that may improve our chances of having this waiver request granted? Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
