    Question: possible outcome of PEB regarding mental health issue 'EPTS' and aggravated by combat service?

    Thank you very much for this response. Make me calmer after reading it. I do have an anxiety issue so that likely contributed to how I wrote my post, but I'll keep all of this in mind. All the best.

    Question: possible outcome of PEB regarding mental health issue 'EPTS' and aggravated by combat service?

    Background: My PEB has not started, but after reading DoDI 13321 and SECNAV 1850.4F, I'm really not optimistic about receiving medical retirement. Here's why (bullet points): Note: EPTS (in title) = Existed Prior To Service. I know what the DoD and SECNAV instructions say, but the language...

    It has to be a provider from the MTF to which you are assigned. Yes it can be a psychologist or psychiatrist, provided they have 'Convening Authority (CA).' 'Out in town' provider is a no-go. (Navy) Manual of the Medical Department (MANMED) 18-9 and 18-24 tells the LIMDU process from top to...

    Possible outcome of MEB?

    Thank you. Your response is something I can use as planning guidance. Even if I'm LIMDU, I still need to do whatever I can to be competitive for promotion (if/when eligible) -OR- pivot to a civilian career. Continuing education is always a must.

    About to begin a PEB in April

    I’ll add another comment. My attending provider and I had a discussion where I argued against a PEB because I was holding out hope for a promotion to O-4. There’s a long version to this story, but I’m going for brevity here. He basically asked why I would turn down potential benefits resulting...

    About to begin a PEB in April

    Seriously, thank you for the response. The most difficult part (so far) is having a ton of question and only one or two people to answer them. I stumbled across this forum while doing research. Glad I did. More questions to follow once the PEB begins.

    About to begin a PEB in April

    Hello: I am currently on AD (USN). I am working with my behavioral health provider, who is also a convening authority (CA). My PEB will address my ankle, back, and mental health issues. Right now I only have two questions, although more questions will come as I get deeper into this process. I'm...
