It is case by case basis so some people cases are more serious. Do you think it really takes more than one day to look at someone case and think so we keep them in or not?
I don't understand why the PEB needs to take more than five minutes with any one case. They should just be checking the boxes.

-NMA assessment suggests separation? Check
-MEB states the condition impacts required duties and will not improve? Check
-Apply proposed VA rating for referred condition to determine DoD rating
-Done.

The package is reviewed by doctors during the MEB phase. Why have more medical officers go over it again during the PEB?

Someone correct me if I’m wrong so example for me I have fish allergy and I’m a CS if you are found you are going back to do your same job no matter what so I’ll basically have to cook fish. I hope they do that so I can file a major lawsuit when they know I have a allergy and be like we don’t care you’ll be fine and my throat closes. Two can play that game fr

My IDES attorney had told me that they are down to 2 medical review officers when they used to have 5. Not sure if its a manning issue or a COVID issue. They went from processing 50-60 cases a week to about 20. smh. Hopefully, you find out soon!

Also would it be IG complaint or an ICE complaint?

From what I was told by a friend close to the PEB, they also went from 8 reviewers to 3 so that's another manning shortfall.

IG complaint would be against the PEB, ICE would be against the PEBLOs, I believe.

My MEB took 16 months start to finish (started in September 2014). Not that unusual. I had been a Case Manager an WTU from 2010-2012 and we had people there for 3 and 4 years at that time. Every case is different and there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than you think.

Thanks for that, and I believe it. I think that the main grievance, at least for me, is that it’s only happening in the DoN (USN/USMC). Seems to me that the other Services have no issue complying with the DoDM, and even allow their members on PEB to see in real time what is happening with their packages. The disparity is my issue. I can’t even relate anything that’s not listed under USN or USMC Case Timelines anymore…

Yeah several years ago there were massive investigations across all branches into the timelines of the medboard because it was taking so long. My therapist has told me all about it. She got taken off her normal duties and only did medboard processing for like 6 months. What they're doing to people is in my eyes negligence. No where in the Navy do we allow people to transfer out when we know it would cause the command significant degredation in the ability for it to carry out it's duties. I'm only assuming they aren't civilians because the email i got said they're short staffed due to PCS which isn't a civilian thing. I'm seeing now that people are being told 8 months for adjudication. this is insane. Meanwhile in the army and airforce people from june submissions are getting their findings back.

You’d think they’d try to expedite people out so they can fill more spots in the fleet with people that are fit for duty rather than having people like me being paid 5K a month to stare at a wall for 9 hours a day waiting to EAS. Lol

Makes too much sense, what do you think this is, the air force?

I wish the Navy could somehow request help from other branches to get caught back up since their staffing is so messed up right now.

Have you memorized all of the lines/cracks on the wall yet. When you get there that is only LEVEL 4 of shut up and wait for us to process your board. It keeps going and going after that.

If I stay here much longer I may be able to draw a perfect image of this room still in 20 years.
