Thoughts on whether this NARSUM indicates fit/unfit?


Registered Member
Hey folks, my MEB is just kicking off. I've received the NARSUM/Commanders letter and the full MEB is now initiated. My commander elected to select "do not retain", so now this is going through the full IDES system. I was wondering if what's written here would seem to indicate a fit, or an unfit finding.

My timeline this far is:

16 November 17 - IRILO notification
22 December 17 - NARSUM completed
2 Jan 18 - Commanders letter compeleted
20 Jan 18 - DAWG initiates full MEB
31 Jan 18 - Signed for IDES process
7 Jan 18 - Initial VA intake appointment
? Jan 18 - VA Appointments

I was thinking the same, thank you Chaplain.

My only additional concern is how my commander wrote his letter. He stated that I am fully able to do my in garrison job, but elected do not retain, and checked "no" in the section that asks if being made non deployable with a C code would change his mind.

Crossing my fingers they don't find me fit, I've beat me shoulder up enough. Barely 30 years old and the doctors talking about needing a replacement before I hit 40.
