So I am half way through my med board and we get a new SgtMaj. He is threatening to admin sep me for not making progress on bcp, even though my duty limitations (for my spine) make it impossible. Is this legal in the USMC can anyone give me refernces to fight this?

They refer to this as dual action. The MEB takes precedence unless you are "returned to duty" in which case they can press on with admin sep.

I don't suppose you could provide me a reference to this?

I looked through the Army reference and found that it used this instruction as a reference: DODI 1332.14 Enlisted Administrative Separations. That will be the basis in which all branches write their individual separation procedures. I don't know what the Marines' version of the Admin Sep Guidance is, but your admin people should be able to point you in the right direction if you can't find it.
