United States Coast Guard - Recruitment Review from Bayshore, North Carolina

My son has a interest in joining the USCG, he filled in his medical prescreen and it was submitted. He underwent orthoscopic hip surgery 3 years ago to remove an impingement from his bone, thats it and he also had tubes in his ears which fell out 10 years ago. The doc at the Raleigh meps station just reviewed the paperwork and automatically gave him a "DQ". IN HIS OPINION HE THINKS HIS HIP WILL BE A REACURRING ISSUE AND HE STILL THINKS HE HAS TUBES IN HIS EARS. The doc didnt seem to read any of the attached paperwork nor did he give him a hands on physical. The disqualifing factors for the hip is " CAN'T HAVE METAL REPLACEMENT PARTS, AND 90% MOBILITY" MY SON HAS NO METAL AND HE'S GOT 100% MOBILITY. A HANDS ON PHYSICAL COULD PROVE THIS AND IT COULD ALSO PROVE HE DOES NOT HAVE TUBES IN HIS EARS. ALL I'M ASKING IS JUST GIVE HIM A CHANCE " HANDS ON PHYSCAL"!!!! Protocall was not followed in this case.

Lax, uninterested US Coast Guard recruiter Scottsdale, AZ

I was interested in applying for the CSPI program (full college scholarship program), which means you are actually applying for an officer's position. When I first contacted the recruiter in December 2014 he neglected to tell me that the deadline for application was Jan.5th. He finally told me and I decided to get more credits at my community college and try again this year. He told me to call in June 2015 to get the process started. I called in June, he told me to call back in July. I called in July, he told me to call back in August. He kept doing this; every time he told me that it was too early to start. I finally got an appointment with him by the middle of November and went up to see him. I had to give him my medical records, which I had with me. He sent those in to be evaluated by MEPS. Until today (Dec. 9) I had not heard back from him. Today I sent him an email asking if it wasn't too late to get my entire application packet done (physical, interviews, ASVAB testing, Resumé written, recommendations verified). Oh, yes, he wrote back, it is too late, you won't be able to get it done before January 5. Why don't you try again next year... I am extremely upset with this man!! He kept putting me off until it was too late!
