    long time no see - needing help

    i'm not sure how else to put it, sorry. when the lawyer stated that the neuro was waiting to be called so he could 'testify' on my husband's behalf - the members of the board said that it wouldn't be necessary - then they asked the lawyer to start his...thing....then my husband was asked...

    Inappropriate questions at FPEB

    so happy to see someone else post about this on here, finally. my husband went through the same thing with his FPEB members and some of the insane things they asked him/accused him of. they asked if he had a LINKEDIN page to which he responded no. once he told them no, they continued to harp...

    long time no see - needing help

    thank you all for your responses - it's much appreciated! @Jason Perry - to answer some of your questions, the FPEB board members were the ones that said he was not deployable and could not re-enlist. they told him that because his EAOS was in october 2020, he "might as well finish up his...

    long time no see - needing help

    so nobody is aware of whether my husband is eligible for a severance at the end of his contract then? since he is unable to re-enlist, make rank or deploy due to the medboard?

    long time no see - needing help

    his neuro already suggested a new medboard and my husband declined. that was the toughest year of his life - and the stress from it all made his migraines worse than they have ever been. for the sake of his health, he will not be doing another medical board and his neuro then agreed because of...

    i apologize - but i have no idea what that means. you mentioned buying out option - but we're asking about severance because his career was pretty much put to a halt.

    long time no see - needing help

    hi all! haven't been here in forever it seems like. for those that don't know my husband's situation - he was found FIT three times through the IPEB, FPEB, etc for 5-6 days a week migraines due to the fact that he achieved sailor of the year twice in five years time. he was told that he was...

    new MEB in six months...

    hello - for those that have never seen me on here, my husband went through a meb, fpeb and petition for relief, and was found FIT each time. his referring condition are severe migraines that occur 5-6 days out of the week [his VA list was a mile long with his blood pressure issues, sleep apnea...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    Thank you! It looks as if a civilian lawyer is warranted at this time. Just unsure if we need to wait to do this, or have him go through the MEB again in six months. (His neurologist says he will be putting him back up if the migraines persist as frequently as they have)

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    sorry to hear you all are going through the same, but happy to see another spouse on here advocating as much as they can for their husband/service member. throughout the entire process, my husband made sure to let any and every body know that he wasn't out to get the highest ratings ever - if he...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    thanks for your input - let me respond as best as i can. How would you define your husbands participation in the MEB process? So far, as I can tell, you have mostly shared your thoughts on what has happened during the IDES. my husband's participation in the MEB process has been 100%. me...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    Completely understand that, and as I said before: not downplaying it disfounting ANY THING anyone on this board (or otherwise) goes through. It just angers me to have seen on social media where people literally play the system and are able to get out to “focus on their health”. Meanwhile, in...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    he didn't tell us - we were told that the BCNR is where they take things off their medical records. i don't think that is what my husband would want to do.

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    before i deleted my facebook page, i was in a few groups and saw people say they were "going to a psychiatrist and telling them they were depressed, because the military wasn't for them" and several months later? they were out. LITERALLY playing the system. but a service member with SEVEN YEARS...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    i should also mention that he is unable to re-enlist because of this, has been deemed non-deployable, and unable to advance. he has 27 months left in his contract. pretty much put at a stop loss, career wise - but they find him FIT. even the lawyer tried to argue in the petition for relief that...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    1. he made junior sailor of the quarter and went up for junior sailor of the year [automatically up for it when you make quarter] and made it two years ago. 2. good evals 3. OH, they did say that he was okay because four years ago, he was able to make it through an entire deployment. that's...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    thanks for your response. his neurologist suggested a MEB 17 months before he was even put up for one, because my husband said "lets try every thing before we go that route" - and once they reached the end of the line, medication wise, that is when he was finally put up for the MEB. the...

    FOUND FIT THREE TIMES.....now what?

    He stated something about the BCNR (I could be saying that wrong) but, not sure why my husband would want medical stuff taken off his record. Other than that, we are being told to wait another six months. We’ve also contacted a lawyer (owner of this board) but have had no response. (I’m sure...
