I am 20 years old, planning to start NROTC next fall at Virginia Tech. I pass everything on the checklist (even PT test), but I'm fairly certain my shoulders will medically disqualify me from service. When I was 17 I had a surgical repair done on my left shoulder (arthroscopic, minimally invasive). Exactly one year later, I had an identical surgery done on the other shoulder. Since then, my shoulders have healed to 100 % and I cannot even tell they were ever injured. It does not physically prohibit me from anything, so I am wondering if I would be able to get a medical waiver to still be in the ROTC program.
