I think it depends on the situation. I agree wholeheartedly that at a minimum the SM should have input into it. At a maximum you do what I did, write it yourself, and send it to your commander for his signature. When I sent mine I told him in the email that was my input, if he didn’t like it he was more than welcome to change it, obviously, and I wouldn’t be upset. Ended up commander was glad I did it because he had no clue how anything impacted me. And in fact didn’t even realize I’d sent it to him until he called me in because the PEBLO notified him they needed it, and he needed to know how I was impacted. I see my commander maybe once a month, sometimes less. I never work with him. I haven’t seen a company commander on a daily basis since I was in a line unit, which is to say 5 years and 2 units ago. Either way, it’s your future, not his or hers. You should have input into what goes into it.
Well said! Last time I've seen him was December 2017 doing a morale check

I received a email today requesting a acceptance for a meeting with the medical supervisor,medical commander and my commander. It’s taken almost 4 weeks. What the hell is going on. Lol

After the long wait on my commanders letter. He wrote a stellar impact statement on why he was not retaining me. My statement was, I Concur.
The wait I guess paid off.

sfletcher1096 I agree with your approach because I did the same. Some of the information has to come from the service member because the Commander just does not know. I wrote it and put "DRAFT" on the document. I had a meeting with the Commander around first week of May 2018. At drill today (9JUN18) we were told that the Commander would be "out of pocket" for the next month and if we needed anything to get on his schedule. He had not processed the document that I had given him via hardcopy and email. Scheduled a meeting with him and discussed it again with the XO in the room. He called the Medical Group and spoke with the servicing Doctor and signed it with no changes. Good staff work will get you far at times. I concurred, signed, and sent it via email to the PEBLO and the Medical Group NCO that is supposed to be complying my medical records to send to PEBLO and VA. This email is a notification to the PEBLO and a reminder to the Medical NCO of the task. So, bottom line at bottom (BLAB), one month wasted in the process yet one step closer to conclusion. Ron P
