Hello there fellow men. I am currently looking into getting an 11B Option 40 contract. I tried to ask my recruiter a few questions today but I was told that any sort of medical waiver or wearing glasses to join the army with that option was an immediate disqualifier for that contract. He also was talking about RIP, and that I needed a tab before I even went to RIP, and didn't seem to be up to date on info. I am going to ask my question here. If I wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, is that a disqualifier from going Option 40? Also, if I need a med waiver for a major surgery that happened when I was a child, and it was a birth defect and bypass heart surgery but was done when I was still well underage, I was cleared two years ago by the Army to do ROTC (never needed a waiver), but never chased it down and am now looking to go enlisted instead. My surgery was over 5 years ago, is that a disqualifier? I know most of you are probably not doctors, but the statement they made was rather general and I don't know what to believe. So in general, do you know if you can get a contract if you don't have perfect eyesight or wear corrective lenses, and if you have a med waiver for a major surgery long ago, would that be a disqualifier? Do any of you gentlemen know? If anybody does, please let me know. Thanks for any insight you can give me.
