Hi. I am a senior in high school and I would like to join AROTC coming up in the fall. I am by no means trying to count my chickens before the eggs hatch, but I am merely trying to plan ahead. I have not received a scholarship yet, but I know DODMERB does all medical clearances to students receiving a scholarship. In August of this year, I broke my foot. I broke my fifth metatarsal (a jones fracture) and was advised by my doctor to have surgery to prevent future issues. I guess my question is, will this cause me issues with DODMERBs? I know what their website says regarding “easy trauma”, but does anyone with personal experience have any information? Anyone have a surgery like this on a bone and still get into the program? Thank you in advance for your help!
