@Kbrooks6 - My gift to you.... Rah.

I am in the process of enlisting into the Air Force. My medical history includes ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee, there is no hardware in my knee.

Post surgery I have found that my running, jumping, and lifting has improved significantly. However, my papers have been rejected by MEP's a number of times and my recruiter has informed me that I have been DQ'd.

MEPs is sending my paperwork to the Air Force SG for review (30 to 45 days) and I am checking in to see if any members here have had similar experiences? Specifically wondering if you might know of any other options I can try to get past MEPs?

Thank you!

I'm not going full Grammar Nazi on you, but your post is one of the hardest to read that I've ever seen. It doesn't matter if you're on your phone or not, breaking that into sentences actually matters. Flat out, some folks stopped reading by the second line and there's no telling who passed on this thread as a result.

Good luck.

Off safe. One away.

There's no "getting past MEPs". If the USAF Surgeon General denies you, that's it for the Air Force. You can try getting a waiver with another service.
