But they are not required to be worldwide deployable. I was a company cdr of a recruiting company, around 1/3 of my company was on permanent profile most due to combat injuries and then got detailed recruiting and stayed there and converted from 11b or other combat arms mos to 79R because they knew they couldn’t go back to the infantry. One had a total hip replacement, one had serious spinal issues resulting in fusion and hardware. As long as they could recruit for me, I didn’t care if they’d never be able to wear an ACH again or ruck March again. Pass a pt test within the limits of their profiles and we were golden. Throw those guys back into the infantry and they’d be meb’d In a heartbeat.Technically recruiters are considered to be deployed on mission every single day of their career. It would be a major distraction to the recruiting effort if medical appointments were tossed into the mix.
