Formal PEB board appeal questions

I was found unfit by the PEB and received the ratings of 40% DOD and 100% VA. I am appealing the boards decision for 2 reasons: 1) I want my unfit conditions coded as Combat Related due to I was injured conducting combat training at JRTC and 2) I am wanting to have all of my arthritic conditions that are correlated to that injury lumped together as an unfit condition. The Informal PEB did not agree with me and kept the original findings. Does anyone have any experience with the Formal PEB board appeal process and what advice do you have.

Your service will provide legal counsel if you ask. I suggest you ask. Service provided counsel do the PEB process for the duration of their assignment. They will be very familiar the way the board has been operating recently. Their intel should be spot on.
