I am a mom with a 15 year old son who is so set on the military, that I cannot imagine him doing anything else. I have recently discovered that sleep apnea is a disqualifying condition. Is this true? Is it true across the board? He has requested mandibular advancement surgery to correct the condition, and we have been told he is a good candidate for it. Assuming the surgery is successful, would he have a good chance of receiving a waiver, or is there a chance that the surgery itself would be disqualifying due to it's reconstructive nature. Help! I really don't know what he'll do if he's told he can't go into service. Right now, his goals involve academy or senior military college, and these are a large part of what's motivating him physically and academically.
