The new and exciting color vision tests were not around in the dark ages when I first embarked on the military journey. It was the old school paper with numbers hiding within the images. The JTAC/TACP/CCT/ATC vision requirements are strict because of obvious reasons: Preventing Aircraft Crashes.

Just so you know, not all TACPs are JTACs or SOF. The JTAC skill is taught later in the TACP's career. Many things are waiverable, and you are correct in that sometimes they waive MORE requirements when they need MORE troops. Head on over to for more TACP specific info, there might be a troop from the schoolhouse there that can get you the latest info.
