Ok my situation feels very hopeless at the moment. I have been trying to join the US Army now for 3 months. I started processing on December 18th. Everything seemed great. However. The surgeon examined me and listened to my heart. He said that my heart sounded weird of "different" (No doctor has ever told me anything like this). I am an athlete and i get physicals every 6 months to make sure I am in top shape. He then wrote a consult for me the next week.
I had an EKG done on my heart. Basically the cardiologist told me he saw something, but it did not look like it would be an issue and that it should really never effect me. But they still had to send a waiver for it....
I have now be waiting since the waiver was sent January 15th till now... I am getting very impatient and it sucks because this is something i really want to do with my life. My ASVAB score was a 91, so some people of course would tell me to go airforce or NAVY instead. But the Army is where my heart is at. My dad was in the army and i want to be a networking specialist or radiologist in the army.
I just called the congressman and filled out some information and faxed it over. She told me that she is going to inform the department of the Army right away about my complaint and wait and i also sent some valid info for them to look at to show that i was told i was ok.
What will this do for me once the congress tells them? will this hurry the process? what can i expect? Once again I am an athlete and i have never had problems with my heart. Does the army always take this long?
