My daughter was going to leave for basic on May 22, 2009. The day she was supposed to leave and went for her physical she had gone from 102 pounds when originally enlisting to 99 pounds. The doc said she was too thin and would not let her leave. Not only would he not let her leave he said she had to gain 10 pounds. They gave her 40 days to gain the weight, 4 days for every pound. It is now July 23 and she has only been able to get to 107 at the most. And of course because she is a woman her weight fluctuates. She keeps getting the run around from the recruting office. Isn't there a way to get a medical waiver? They said they could not get her one. I honestly think they just are not trying.
