    This isn't a deal breaker man. Check the medical requirements on the webpage.

          I too had my Medical Part I today in Newark, NJ. Everything came out well for Medical Part I, HOWEVER, I won't lie and admit I had a hell of a time with that damn breathing thru a machine test, LoL. That was the weirdest feeling I've ever experienced, LoL.

          Don't sweat the vision, I'm sure their are ways around it for you. Did the nurse tell you what you can do? I suggest going to your primary physician and seeing what he/she suggest.

          I hated that damn test, it was like dry-heaving through a toilet paper roll. The nurse at my physical told me that you had to practice at the test, I was like I DON'T think so, I will take the markdown on that one.

            Good to know I wasn't the only one who had difficulty with that! I guess that isnt necessarily a bad thing...

            So just curious, does anyone know if there were any non-military guys that got "the call" so far?

              • Since the subject of vision came up, I just wanted to put down some information that I have not seen anywhere else. In regards to having laser eye surgery done, there are different waiting periods for completing the medical after having the surgery done, the waiting period is based on the type of laser eye surgery surgery. LASIK is 3 months after the date of the surgery, PRK and ALK are 6 months and RK is a 1 year wait. Figured I would post this in case anyone has any questions on it.

                JJ2009, congrats on squeaking by on the vision, close call man! Good luck!

                • Just got a call from the BI working my case and we're meeting up tomorrow. It's good to feel like I'm part of the process again!

                    Ischremp,

                    LoL. Their is no practice needed for that test. Their is a trick to blowing in the plastic tube. I've met people who can run for days at a 5 minute pace and couldn't blow in the thing and vice versa (slower runners who always seem to blow a lot of air in the thing); however, as I stated earlier, their is of course a trick to blowing a great deal of air into the thing.

                        Congratulations, my friend. That is amazing!!! Well, you're pretty much in there now. All that is left is waiting for the call, brother. Hold your head up high. You didn't think you could do so well on the run from previous postings, but you showed what determination can accomplish!!!!

                        • Has anybody from region 1 taken the drug test yet? I met with the BI earlier this week and have the medical done. I was just wondering if they call you or email you the drug test information.

                            • Mr. Smith,
                              Your ears must have been ringing. I have not heard a word about the drug test.

                              BigDal, good work on that fit test, did you take the drug test already?
