  • Hearing Waiver?


    I have had a slight hearing problem from birth. When I was at reception right before OSUT I failed my hearing test the first time and I had to retake it with the audiologist. She has told me that I have a 2 on my PULLES and that my hearing would disqualify me from some MOSs like 68W and also Special Forces. She also gave me a permanent hearing profile. I brought it up with the SF unit in my state and they told me that it MAY be possible to get a waiver. But I need/want to get it retested to see if I can score better. SO I was wondering what steps do I need to take to see where my hearing is and if its possible to get a waiver? Also, is it possible to have my hearing results sent down to Bragg before I complete the SF weekend "try out" to see if I can even get a waiver? I just don't want to get down to SFRE or SFAS and then find out I cant get a waiver after all my hard work. Thank you in advance.

    My advice would be to enlist now and worry about SF after the fact.
