Specifically someone that had closed head surgery and is now unable to smell anything?
that must be an awesome disability.
unless your house is filling up with natural gas.
Its pretty dangerous. Next door neighbors house was on fire and he slept through the entire thing until the firetrucks came.
I worked with a guy in the AF who couldn't smell.
talk to a recruiter
they do have a waiver for almost everything but I don't think for the situation you are describing.
However, they are almost as many civilian positions in DoD where you can work and help the fight.
I would think that with a motivated recruiter and the right MOS a waiver could be put together for that disability. As long as he is otherwise fit and able to serve.
As a medic in the army, I have seen all types of people with many disabilities. You would be amazed at what people get waviers for coming into the army especially now with the war going on overseas. Talk to your recruiter and find out if he can get a medical wavier for you. I would imagine they would just have a doctor screen you and sign off saying you are fit to fight....but the real hurdle is getting the recruiter's chain of command to allow you to come in with that wavier. If one recruiter tells you he can't get you in, go to another recruiting office and eventually someone will sign off and let you into the army. No guarentees on anything but I would bet that would work.
