Hello all...i was discharged 10 years ago from the Air Force almost 2 years into my enlistment with asthma. I have a RE code of 2Q-existed prior to service, Honorable Discharge. I had a bad case of mono/bronchitis 1 1/2 yrs into my enlistment and was given a pulmonary function test because i was having hard time breathing and i didnt pass. i was asked by the doctor if i had asthma and i said i had never been diagnosed but had allergic reactions 4 times 6 years earlier and taken medication. i provided copies of the records but was told i was being medically boarded. i had several letters of support, was a BMT honor grad surpassing the highest fitness standards and even the doctor marked return to duty but the still took away my world wide status. i continued to work in my duty field the entire time i went through the medical board process. i went before a formal board and they turned me down. The Air Force said i cannot stay in without being world wide qualified and cannot stay in with asthma. I fought it to the Secretary of the Air Force and he turned me down. After i got out i started working for the local PD and never bothered to get the diagnosis overturned, i just stopped taking medication and had no issues. i couldnt find a recruiter to help me get back in the reserves (Army reserves)until now. i am working with a recruiter that said he will put the paperwork thru if i get all the documentation. just had a physical, and passed the pulmonary function test twice. How hard is this waiver process gonna be? How hard is it to get a waiver after being discharged for medical condition? thanks
