Question about MEPS DQ
My fiancee has always dreamed of being a Marine and he's currently crushed because he was medically disqualified. A while back he was diagnosed with PTSD after a situation that was quite earth shaking to him. He had to go to a counselor who quickly, and incorrectly, diagnosed him for what was thought to be PTSD. After time said counselor realized that it was not PTSD, but just initial shock/trauma and has admitted this. Upon going through MEPS the first time they cleared him on everything except that and requested the he come back for a mental eval. He did and they disqualified him on that small technicality. What, if anything, can we do to make it possible for him to enlist? I hate seeing him like this and want more than anything for him to be able to achieve his lifelong goal. Any advice or knowledge would be appreciated.
Hopeful Marine Girlfriend.

More of a profile than just first and last name would be helpful.........site rules, which can be found in the poolee and Ask A Marine forums.
And PTSD is not no small technicality.

Im Sorry Ma'am I didn't realize, I'm new to this website. Profile has been changed as requested. I understand when correctly diagnosed that it poses a large problem but seeing as he does not have PTSD would it be possible to get the DQ waived? I am really new in the world of military and apologize if im asking stupid questions.

As for what can or cannot get waived, it's not our decision or a recruiters decision.
Really....this is a situation that your fiancee needs to take care of for himself. I understand that you're only trying to help, but he should be the one here asking the questions. He really needs to talk with his recruiter "face-to-face" and ask him what steps he needs to take, if any, in getting the proper diagnoses from his doctor.
If your fiancee really wants to be a Marine, he will exhaust all means necessary in doing this.
