    When I was in 8th grade, I completely tore the ACL in my right knee, along with a partial tear of the meniscus. I had fully reconstructive surgery and never had a problem until 6 months later when I re-tore the same ACL (most likely due to too much activity, too soon). Again, I had surgery to fix it and the second time went even better than the first. Have not had problems the second time, I am 100% and feeling great. By the time I apply for the service acadamies/ROTC, it will have been about 3 years post op. I was wondering if I will be DQ'd and if so what my chances of receiving a waiver would be. It is my dream to go to West Point and I really don't want to be turned down by a three year old surgery.
