Well, I am back from Montgomery Alabama MEPS Station at Maxwell AFB. I got home last night around 9pm. I was tired as heck.
Anyway, glad I did leave the XD45 at home. I would have been in deep shooshoo if I had taken it.
As far as my physical at MEPS. . . . I am disheartened now.
I was there for my "Over 40" physical and it all came to a stop at 9:00am. I made it fine through every step of the physical. All the way through. Same physical the 19 year olds were taking.
- My Body Fat percent was good for my height and weight.
- Was able to perform all of the physical moves, duck walk, hell walk, tip toe walk. No problems.
- Blood pressure good.
- Vision good but I failed color blind test. I passed Red/Green recognition but I failed the color vision assessment.
- Passed hearing test
- Passed all drug/alcohol screenings (I don't do either)
Basically I made it through every step and was ready to start my "Cardio"evaluation which is the "Over 40" extra steps. My enlistment counselor told me that I had been disqualified.
I declared that I had previously had kidney stones. I had two episodes in my entire life. I passed both myself and was not hospitalized.
I was told that two or more kidney stones was disqualifying.
So, now I have to wait to see if I can get a waiver, then go see a doc for a medical evaluation and then continue the exam at MEPS.
