Hi Tony, I'm a new member here. I am looking for someone to ask some questions about being med boarded out of Active USNR for line of duty injuries. Who would be the best person to ask in a private message? The reason I prefer to ask privately is because it includes suicide attempt, hospitalizations etc. While I was totally off the Complex PTSD reservation I was med boarded out. I was never paid for my total disability or even properly discharged with Comp etc.
I’ve recently received my results from the MEB (19 Oct 2021) for 3 unfitting conditions:
1. Crohn’s Disease
2. PTSD, Chronic
3. Major Depression Disorder, Severe Reoccurring
Also, the MEB recommended that I was deemed unfit for duty, separation/retirement & referred my case to the IPEB.
The only disagreements I have with my MEB results are (1) the NARSUM that was dated back in May 2021 and (2) migraines not being listed as an unfitted condition, which resulted in me writing a Letter of Rebuttal (LOR) to include pertinent details on both, Crohn’s Disease and Migraines (severity, frequency, symptoms, medications, treatment plan moving forward, speciality referral doctors and etc). I also submitted updated medical records to my PEBLO along with my Rebuttal Letter (22 Oct 21) for both Crohn’s Disease & Migraines.
Even if the Convening Medical Authority (CMA) disagrees with my LOR at least my updated medical records and LOR will be included in my MEB case and progress forward to the IPEB Phase in which I’m totally okay with. Also, I plan on submitting an Letter of Exception (LOE) to be considered Permanently Retired this upcoming Monday (Oct 25) to my PEBLO.
1.) Have any of my fellow PEB members submitted an Letter of Rebuttal (LOR) or Letter of Exception (LOE) during the MEB Phase? What did you include in your LOR or LOE?? Also, do you think it’s a great idea to submit a LOE and if so/not, then please explain why?
2.) How beneficial do you feel either the LOR or LOE were to your specific MEB/PEB case?
3.) Anyone ever successfully been added an unfitting condition after submitting an LOR at the MEB Phase?
Please, share your experience(s). Also, all suggested tips are openly welcomed. Thank you, kindly!
