I am a Kentucky applicant to the national guard. Because I have two DUIs (2006 and 2008) I had to submit a moral waiver to NGB as the first part of my application process. The waiver was a approved and I passed my physical. I thought everything was going fine but at the end of the second day I was informed that I was being referred for a psych evaluation due to my DUIs. I wasn't worried about the evaluations since as a master's candidate in clinical psychology I frequently due alcohol evaluations. Six days passed and I received a letter in the mail stating that I was DQed based on the results of my evaluations. I requested my evaluation file and began reviewing it. It appears that I was given a diagnosis of alcohol abuse based on the DUIs. This leads me to my actual questions. Where and how can I request my evaluation be reviewed. The diagnosis of alcohol abuse requires two event to occur within a 12 months period (per the DSM 4) and my DUIs were almost two years apart. Second I would like to confirm that alcohol abuse is currently a non waivable DQ. I had heard that NGB has enacted a blanket policy of no psych waivers but Im not certain that is true either. Looking for imformation as both the clinic where is was evaluated and MEPS are both telling me I need to work through the other to resolve this issue.
