Wheelchairs meet EFMP standards. I have encouraged all of my soldier with "other than the usual medical ailments" to get on EFMP. Here is why. You get PCS orders to Germany for a duty where the housing is not wheelchair accessable. Your tour could turn into an unaccompanied tour! Almost saw that one happen.

Had another solier whose child has Chron's Disease. Very severe ailment that had this two year old in and out of hospitals. Without EFMP his branch manager would not have been able to prevent a PCS.

Do it, it won't hurt your promotion. I have worked with at least four CSM's who have sat on promotion boards and do not let EFMP stand in the way.
