DS, a contracted AROTC MS1, decided to get a tattoo this summer. After studying the new tattoo regs, he got a rather large one on his upper arm. We will not discuss his parents opinion on this....Any how, he emailed the DoDMERB help desk asking how to report it, as we were under the impression they had to be informed. They answered very quickly, saying that since he is already medically qualified and participating in ROTC, that he should report it to his PMS upon returning to school. I thought that was interesting info that someone else might be interested in hearing.
