I haven't received DOD/VA ratings, but my PEBLO can see I've been found UNFIT and my case has been forwarded to VA for ratings. Everything submitted for IPEB was positive and all endorsements recommended I be found FIT. Well, things didn't go my way at IPEB and once ratings come back I will appeal the UNFIT finding and try to be found FIT. Has anyone out there as of late been to DC for FPEB or know anyone and who has and what were the outcomes. I know each case is different, but wanted to see how things are going since the new DOD Force Deployment Directive. What can I due to be proactive with the time I have. Should I be asking for letters of recommendations from previous Chain of Commands or have someone come with me to FPEB to speak on my behalf? Maybe there's things I'm not thinking about at this time? Any advice or mentorship would be whole heartily appreciated.
