im confused

<p>my DoDMERB examiner told me i have flat feet (pes planus). I was looking a the dodmerb page and it says a history would dq. however, i dont have a history, nor do i experience pain from it. any idea if it would be an automatic dq or not?</p>

<p>and can someone explain the USMA waiver process to me? thanks</p>

<p>i had a similar problem for the AFA. never been observed to have had flat feet before, never had any problems, but while standing on that freezing floor the doc thought i had flat feet. nothin came out of it, so maybe he didnt write it down.. but i guess you'll find out!</p>

<p>SAME exact thing happened to me HNeedle...</p>

<p>As I understand it, USMA will automatically consider you for a waiver if you are competitive. They will ask you and/or your doc for more info regarding your feet, and they have their own independent doctors look at each waiver case individually, and make their decision. Should not be a problem if it does not cause you any problems. Good luck.</p>

<p>hey dyenior_2008! i think i remmember you from SLS. you were the guy that joked around about scrubs alot, right. hahaha.</p>

<p>but to the OP... just wait it out. same thing happened to my friend.</p>

<p>Yes I was. JD. Whats up? Ballin'! (Not quite as good as us camals...) How's it goin?</p>

<p>You might try posting in the DoDMERB section of United</a> States of America Service Academy Forums - Powered by vBulletin. There is former DoDMERB employee that will respond to most questions in less than one day. He is very knowledgable.</p>

<p>Good luck.</p>

<p>For my DoDMERB the doctor said i had the same thing, but i didnt even know this was a problem till she told me. I have never had a problem with my flat before too. Even though she made a mark of it, I still was found to be medically qualified. I hope the same happens for you.</p>
