I was in my sophomore year in AFROTC at the time of the incident. I made a post where I was posing with guns. Some saw the post and over-reacted and thought I was potentially a danger to myself and/or others. I didn't say anything to indicate that. I was not pointing a gun at myself. Someone saw the post at my detachment. The next day, an officer with my detachment, along with the police showed up at my house. I'm living with my parents. The police informed me, by law they had to take me into custody and monitored for 72 hours, and evaluated by a psychiatrist. I realize it was bad judgment on my part posting what I did. I wasn't thinking about how others may view my post. I was released from the behavioral clinic 72 hours later. The psychiatrist evaluation stated that I was not suicidal, required no medication, and cleared back to school without restrictions. My detachment stated that I needed to forward records to DODMERB for review. After a period of time, I called DODMERB and found out my waiver had been declined. Apparently my detachment had requested a waiver since it was an isolated incident. The reason given for DQ was "suicidality with hospitalization". I met with my commander with a list of questions regarding the decision for this DQ. We called the Surgeon General's office, AETC. The reason they gave for DQ was "prone to depression and anxiety". After reading the regulation, DQ for anxiety and depression are the same: outpatient care longer than 12 consecutive months, symptoms or treatment within the last 36 months, any inpatient treatment in a hospital or residential facility, or any suicidality. I have been cleared by a psychiatrist stating that I was/am not suicidal, or suffering from depression or anxiety and I've submitted these records. So I'm out of AFROTC and have to apply for OTS upon graduating. I'm confused now how to answer the questions on the medical history when I apply. For the blocks for: have you ever suffered from depression, anxiety, or have you ever contemplated suicide? I can honestly answer no to these but I don't want DODMERB to DQ me for "lying" from their point of view. I guess I'll have to wait 36 months from the date of this incident to apply for OTS? Not sure how to proceed. I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you.
