Customer Question
18 and wants to be...
My son was diagnosed with asperger in 2nd grade. He is now 18 and wants to be Marine.We told the recruiter of this but we were told not to worry about it. My son went to MEPS and took ASVAB and AFQT score was 76 which is a good score but then went to do physical and was told he didn't qualify because of the AS. He is very high functioning I was just so shocked by this. You said in one of your replies to someone else that he could do a waiver. How does that work? Thank you

Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
A waiver is normally initiated by the recruiter; have you spoken to the recruiter about this possibility?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
