DS has scars on the top of his forearm from falling into a Hawthorn bush a number of years ago. If you've never seen the thorns on one, they are very scary! Anyway, DODMERB is requesting a statement about the cause of the scars, etc. I'm sure they are rightfully concerned about people with self-inflicted wounds, but unless clumsiness can be considered self-inflicted, this isn't that. There was no guidance given about the statement and am wondering if anyone else has had to write something like this - anything he should be sure to say by way of explanation?
