I was selected in the March 19 board and am slotted for class in Febuary 2020. I'm looking to get braces at my current duty station out of pocket since the Army won't help me. I have approval from my current commander but am looking to get in contact with the Company Commander for HHC/ WOCS.There's no regulations about braces, only that they can make you non deployable, which is why I'm looking to finish them during WOFT. 

 

If anyone has the Company Commander or a TAC/instructor that you could connect me with their email or POC would be great. I can prove my identity if needed. Thanks!

Pretty sure I saw people with braces at WOCS. Don't take that as gospel though. Can't speak to anything else in the pipeline yet though. Reach out to Mr. Ortiz at WOCS HHC, he should be able to give you a definitive answer.

Appreciate the replies, spoke with the Company commander and also the OIC for the clinic that does the flight physicals down there at Rucker and both said they are allowed.
