Dear Mr. Simmons,
I am direct commissioning as an officer in the ARNG. I have already been to DoDMERB realized two things when I went over my Medical History form again: (1) I have been told I am allergic to sulfa, but checked 'no' under allergies for drugs because I simply forgot (2) I saw a psychatrist for ADHD, he prescribed something, I tried it, stopped it since it didn't work. This was two years ago. I put 'no' under mental health conditions because I didn't consider myself having any conditions. I have not sworn in yet, and I would like to correct these errors as soon as possible. Are there any legal ramifications in reporting these errors? What should the appropriate steps be for me to take? I plan on talking with my recruiter as soon as possible since I am on a deadline.
