I had a root canal performed on a lower molar approx 1.5 years ago. No crown was placed on the tooth. No pain, sensitivity, or brittleness since the work was done. Will I need to get the tooth crowned to pass the FC1? Thanks for any advice.

Don't see a major problem. Read through the AFI as necessary. If memory serves, you need to be Class 1 for initial approval, but I'm not 100% sure.
A2.1. CLASS 1. Patients with a current dental examination who do not require dental treatment or reevaluation. Class 1 patients are worldwide deployable.
A2.2. CLASS 2. Patients with a current dental examination who require non-urgent dental treatment or reevaluation for oral conditions that are unlikely to result in dental emergencies within 12 months. Class 2 patients are worldwide deployable. Patients in dental class 2 may exhibit the following:
A2.2.1. Treatment or follow-up indicated for dental caries or minor defective restorations that can be maintained by the patient.
A2.2.2. Interim restorations or prostheses that can be maintained for a 12-month period. This includes teeth that have been restored with permanent restorative materials but for which protective cuspal coverage is indicated.
A2.2.3. Edentulous areas requiring prostheses, but not on an immediate basis.
A2.2.4. Periodontium that requires:
A22.214.171.124. Oral prophylaxis.
A126.96.36.199. Maintenance therapy.
A188.8.131.52. Treatment for slight to moderate periodontitis and stable cases of more advanced periodontitis, and/or removal of supragingival or mild to moderate subgingival calculus.
A2.2.5. Unerupted, partially erupted, or malposed teeth that are without historical, clinical, or radiographic signs or symptoms of pathosis, but which are recommended for prophylactic removal.
A2.2.6. Active orthodontic treatment. The provider should consider placing the patient in passive appliances for deployments up to six months. For longer periods of deployment, the provider should consider removing active appliances and placing the patient in passive retention.
A2.2.7. Temporomandibular disorder patients in remission. The provider anticipates the patient can perform duties while deployed without ongoing care and any medications or appliances required for maintenance will not interfere with duties.
