    Just rc'vd the 2nd remedial request today- 1st one was for all medical records from age of 15 to present day. Today this code was added: R242.01 Obtain a complete spirometry study
    This code was listed under the Merchant Marine Agency, but the Naval Academy Agency still just says "remedial requested". Are both acadamies working with the same remedial? Could there possibly be other remedials requested at a later date, or do they usually post them all at the same time? I am glad for the remedials - we will take that! :) Grateful to have made it this far in the journey - hope & pray to keep it going!

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!!

    Our experience is that each Academy or other program may have different DQ lists at DODMERB. That is to say, what will be a DQ (and perhaps irredeemable) at one place will not even be an issue at another. You will probably find details on the Navy remedial on the DODMERB site. You will need to look up the code # for the DQ. There is (was) a button on the left margin to click through to the code definitions.
    Yes it could be that both are working with the same issues. But ones list of remedial/waivers may be longer than another owing to the differing requirements/standards.
    Hang in there and respond to the requests a promptly as possible. That's about all you can do.
