My son received a three year ROTC scholarship. He has been medically qualified by DODMERB but we just found out that he will need surgery on his hip. He has been treated for a hip injury for a few months and we thought it was healed...turns out it wasn't and now he will have surgery for hip impingement. He had his left hip done two years ago so we know that 4-6 months from now he will be better than he is now. The problem is is that we know we have to notify DODMERB and he will be disqualified. We are afraid he may lose his scholarship even though we have been told that as long as he is back to 100% when he reports to school in the fall.... that they will hold the scholarship for him. Does anyone have any personal experience with this? Thanks for your help.
