My son received an LOA in Oct. DodMerb via the phone yesterday said it looks like he will need a couple of waivers: 1. Back injury from sports his 9th grade year. Wore a brace for awhile and has since competed in 3 years of varsity football and wrestling and has never has an issue. Back Squats over 400 pounds! Required no surgery and wears no brace which was conveyed to DodMerb in a letter. 2. Vocal Cord dysfunction. In his med history a speech patholigist wrote this as a possibility for his deep croup cough he had after a two day-10 match wrestling tournament he wrestled while sick. He has never had any problems since and we have never even thought of it until now but it showed in his file. Should these be waived?? This kid is as healthy as they come but I am new to this process. Does he have a chance???
