Was Oswald fit for service?

Captain Donabedian was called before the WC to explain Oswald's Marine

medical records.

This is from his testimony:

Captain DONABEDIAN - No; not offhand. He had a sore throat, which many boys

have in the service.He had a cold. And he had one other infection, otitis

media, in 1957.

Oswald had a mastoidectomy at 5.

Youth House reported partial loss of hearing in Oswald's left ear.

Otitis media is a very probable factor in learning problems including

dyslexia. Behavioral problems are also common in children with hearing

defects.

"Evidence strongly suggests that severe cases of recurrent acute otitis

media and persistent otitis media with effusion (OME) may impair hearing and

slow down language development and reading skills. Older children with

long-term mild hearing problems from undiagnosed or intractable conditions

can develop learning disabilities and behavioral and social problems."

I submit that Oswald's learning diability (whether it was dyslexia, or some

other disorder), and any behavioral problems were the result of recurrent

Otitis Media - which the mastoidectomy failed to rectify, and that there was

no psychiatric basis for his problems in NYC.

Should Oswald have been accepted into the Marines?

Having been accepted, should he have been medically discharged in 1957 when

Otitis Media was diagnosed?

Remember Oswald's medical record shows he was treated for VD that he got in the line of duty...marine intelligence is a branch of naval intelligence, and this lowest grade asset defected re-defected and generally acted like a manipulated puppet of malign forces. LEGEND tells how deMorenscildt was watching MARINA, his wife who was daughter of a KGB colonel.......very interesting.

Hi Shanet,

It does indeed show that. Trouble is, it is meaningless in terms of identifying Oswald as any sort of agent. Reason being that the military routinely called any injury or illness as being "in the line of duty" if the individual was able to return to normal duties on the same day as the medical treatment.

marine intelligence is a branch of naval intelligence, and this lowest grade asset defected re-defected and generally acted like a manipulated puppet of malign forces.

Oswald did not defect... ergo... no re-defection, either. Nor was he a part of any fake defector program.

LEGEND tells how deMorenscildt was watching MARINA, his wife who was daughter of a KGB colonel.......very interesting.

She was his neice, not daughter... and he was in the MVD, not KGB.

Marina is a whole other subject, though... and I'd like to get back to the original one here.

I have been trying to find out if the same military enlistment regulations that apply now in regard to ear and hearing problems, were the same ones applicable in the 1950s.

below is what currently applies:

Hearing Requirements for Military Service

9/20/2004

David W. Chandler, Ph.D., Colonel in the US Army

Question:

I have a patient who is a rising senior in high school. He is very interested in pursuing a career in the military. However, he has bilateral high frequency hearing loss. This prompts my question: What criteria are used by the military to determine eligibility for service? I have always understood that a candidate must pass a military physical and that normal hearing acuity is required. Are their exceptions? I would like to have someone answer and address these questions.

Answer:

The Dept. of Defense has minimal fitness standards that must be met in order to enter military service. Waivers for hearing loss are not granted by USAF, although hearing loss may be waived by other services on very rare occasion. Consideration for waiver of hearing loss depends on the nature of the loss, severity of loss, and the military job that is being sought by the applicant (e.g., someone with hearing loss could not be a pilot, or work in jobs requiring acute hearing). Typically, hearing loss is waived for difficult-to-fill professional positions such as physician, nurse, lawyer, etc.

My point is, were requirements waived for Oswald because he could fill a "difficult-to-fill position"... such as being a special errand boy for the US Government?

Here are the actual current Medical Standards in relation to ear problems:

U.S. Military Military Medical Standards for Enlistment & Appointment

Ears

The disqualifying medical conditions are listed below. The International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes are listed in parentheses following each standard.

The causes for rejection for appointment, enlistment, and induction are:

a. External ear. Atresia or severe microtia (744), acquired stenosis (380.5), severe chronic or acute otitis externa (380.2), or severe traumatic deformity (738.7).

b. Mastoids. Mastoiditis (383), residual of mastoid operation with fistula (383.81), or marked external deformity that prevents or interferes with wearing a protective mask or helmet (383.3).

c. Meniere’s Syndrome. Or other diseases of the vestibular system (386).

d. Middle and inner ear. Acute or chronic otitis media (382), cholesteatoma (385.3), or history of any inner (P20) or middle (P19) ear surgery excluding myringotomy or successful tympanoplasty.

e. Tympanic membrane. Any perforation of the tympanic membrane (384), or surgery to correct perforation within 120 days of examination (P19).

Derived from Department of Defense (DOD) Directive 6130.3, Physical Standards for Appointment, Enlistment, and Induction, and DOD Instruction 6130.4, Criteria and Procedure Requirements for Physical Standards for Appointment, Enlistment, or Induction in the Armed Forces.

Just a reminder: Oswald had a mastoidectomy at age 5, he was diagnosed at 13 with hearing loss in left ear, and was treated for otitis media in the Marines. If the same regs applied then, as now, he should not have been accepted into the Marines at all.

Not if he was just your average kid off the street, anyway...

OSWALD DIDN'T DEFECT????

He went to the USSR, disclaimed citizenship and waltzed back into the states!

Totally typical of a false defector program!!

Reality Check!! Rather than sidetrack us with mastoid details lets get this straight;

Oswald was a defector and a counter-defector........If he got VD in the line of duty he was approved for illicit sex, no penalty....in Japan, US Marines.

Remember Oswald's medical record shows he was treated for VD that he got in the line of duty...

Shanet,

he didn't legally renounce US citizenship, nor was he granted Soviet citizenship. Those are the facts.

If you think Oswald's trip to USSR was typical of a fake defector, you're mistaken (or reading too many books). In any case, the evidence points to other purposes.

The VD is a non-issue for the reasons already stated.

His mastoidectomy is not a side-issue. There were a number of legal problems with his enlistement... this was another if the same regs applied back then, as now. There were also legal issues with his exit from the Marines.

These issues will lead you to the true history of Oswald - conspiracy book junk about getting VD in the line of duty, and being part of a fake defector program will only leave you where you... up a blind alley.

I am reading too many books............Oswald defected to USSR and came back.
