May I ask what you did to bypass your broken wrist? I'm dealing with the same thing and have already been denied a waiver.

Dear Dmarie123

I deeply hope that you will be able to read my message and you still checking your "City-Data" profile.

I noticed from your blogs that you are an air force recruiter and I would like to seek your help.

I'm very skilled professional and specialised in a uniques field of physics. I hold bachelor degree in medical physics, master in scientific computing with a major in mathematics and master in physics (speciality in quantum devices) and I also hold a PhD in electrical engineering (specialised in quantum information processing with atoms). I currently work as a postdoctoral researcher in one of the top world universities in California. More details about my skills and background can be sent to you via email if you contact me (mabd.at.kth.se), please replace (.at.) with @.

I'm now 37 years old, spent my life learning science. I applied to join the airforce but my application got rejected from the first " New line Officer Application" due to my age.

Physically, I'm also very qualified where I hold two black belts in Judo and Taekwondow and blue belt in free style martial art.

I know that I can find my way in industry or the private sector but it is my desire to joining the airforce and contribute to the development.

Having that all said, I find myself not able to convince my recruiters here to take me, and this is why I made a search in the internet to find you and ask for your help.

I look forward to hear from you soon.

Hi I am interested in joining the air force as a nurse I finish school in May I want to join because it is something I am passionate about. However, I heard it is really hard to get into as a nurse. What would make me a competitive applicant? I had been prescribed an inhaler after age 13 but for bronchitis and I actually never had wheezing or anything for years. I am really athletic and can breathe fine. Any advice would be great!
Thanks!

I received an honorable discharge for having asthma in 2010 from the National Guard. Since then I have not had any problems. Can I rejoin the service if I get cleared?

My son is going through the steps to enter the AF. He had a paper in his med records indicating he used an inhaler for football back when he was 15. used it a couple times and hadn't used it since. he went on to play 4 years of high school football and 4 years of wrestling. we just found out his records are being forwarded on to the surgeon general. What are his chances and/or what steps shoulld he expect?

Can you PM me some more info? This makes zero sense. A broken wrist is NOT a disqualification AT ALL. There is no way the surgeon general would deny a waiver for a broken wrist if it was just a broken wrist. Even with retained hardware, I doubt MEPS would even deny you to even need a waiver. I don't think you are getting the full answer from your recruiter,or there is more to the story. Can you not use your wrist? Can you not do push-ups? Maybe in that case I can see it being denied.
