My DS was medically disqualified and a medical waiver was requested by both USAFA and AFROTC. (The issue was knee pain in the spring and summer which never stopped him from competing in varsity level track and cross country.) Of course the waiting is hard but both USAFA and AFROTC said that DoDMERB will be updating the status in the portal so that he can schedule an appointment for a followup within 3 or 4 days. It has been since 12/26 and 1/3 and there are no updates in DoDMERB and the contact there said they have 30 days to post anything they receive to the site. The original doctor's appointment was not uploaded to the site for 53 days so another exam timeframe is REALLY nerve wracking. He has reached out to DoDMERB, AFROTC & USAFA and there is no change on DoDMERB. He understands that this all takes an amazing amount of patience but my concern is the timeframe. I just wanted to ask if anyone thought there is more he should be doing. I would hate for him to not move forward because he didn't followup in some way. I am very proud of him for navigating this process on his own. It has been great to see glimpses of the amazing adult he is going to be!
