Hello sir. Can I ask a question for the medical waiver? I am trying to join the Air Force Reserve. I went to the MEPS on February 14 2017. I got disqualified for my buckwheat allergy so they required me something showing I have a buckwheat allergy. I send my recruiter my allergy test. but the test shows I also have also house dust allergy and dust mites allergy (I've never sicked from them). Would it disqualify me to join the Air Force reserve? Because buckwheat allergy is so rare, and it is not very normal ingredient. People do not normally use the buckwheat to cook something. I am worrying that I have those allergy (I think they are very minor and not serious allergy like peanut or gluten.) Thank you very much for reading it. You can also response through here or [leedongjinkr@gmail.com]

It depends. No one cares about the dust allergies, but the buckwheat might cause you to be out. How bad is the reaction. If you need an epi pen you have no chance of getting in. If you just get hives, you DO have a chance of getting in. If you have "oral allergy syndrom" it is usually not waived.

DODI 6130, you are disqualified IF "History of systemic allergic reaction to food or food additives (995.60-995.69).
Systemic allergic reaction may be defined as a temporally related, systemic, often multi-system,
reaction to a specific food. The presence of a food-specific immunoglobulin E antibody without
a correlated clinical history DOES meet the standard."
"(3) Oral allergy syndrome."

Good luck!

My daughter's boyfriend has two Reckless Driving charges. He says he talked to a recruiter and he is going to enlist at th end of June and will be going to boot camp two weeks later. He said he will be done mid-September and then my daughter can live with him on base. All this is just on time for their baby to arrive in November. To me, this sounds very off.

He can't wait until June to decide and then leave in July. The process to leave takes 3-9 months, depending on a lot of factors. He has to decide NOW if he wants to leave in July. The Air Force is already slotting people for July, and we're about to start on August slots.

For the Air Force, he can get in with those charges if the fines were under $300. If the fines were over $300 he needs a waiver, and that adds even MORE TIME to the process.

He will live in DORM rooms on base, and she can not live with him if they are still girlfriend and boyfriend. If they are married, he'll get a house and they can live together. But, this will be unlikely to happen by November. He has to get in (already looking at July/August if he signed papers today), then get through boot camp, and THEN get all the way through technical/job training. Job training can be a few weeks to a year. If it's longer than 6 months she can move with him (if married), but if it's 5 months and 29 days, she can not. So, November... highly unlikely.
