Hi, just wanted to reach out to see where you are in the process. I am also overseas and it is highly likely that I will be referred to the MEB/PEB. I near the end of my LIMDU and just got MRIs that show labral tears in both hips (I also have a FAI in my R hip). Spoke to my PCM two days ago about the MRI results, referred me back to Orthopedics again but said MEB/PEB is in my near future and I am more than ready for it...

Hey there! So my process has been at a standstill for months... I’m currently in Hawaii for some additional testing. I know 1 Marine and 2 Sailors that are stationed in Okinawa that received notification that their packages are found as warranted.

Thank you for the reply, can you explain “warranted” for me please?

Yeah, so overseas packages have to be determined as warranted or unwarranted before members get orders to return CONUS for the remainder of the PEB process.

Gotcha ok, so its the same thing as fit or unfit for duty. Do you know the estimate time I may wait from the official submission to when I may be found fit or unfit for duty?

It’s not quite the same, because you still have to do the C&P exams with the VA once you get to the states. So, if your package is found to be warranted, then you get to go start the process of a full MEB

So how long did it take for you find out that you were warranted? I was told once I get my PEB paperwork submitted I should get orders back to the states within two months.

So...you are in the same holding pattern I am. OIDES was cancelled as of Sept 2019. All Navy and Marine overseas cases were suspended in Dec/Jan awaiting the ASN MRA Policy. Basically, the OIDES was illegal and against federal/DoD policy. The Policy letter that came out last week gives the Navy and Marine Corps until 30 April to update ALL orders that have anything pertaining to Overseas DES processes. It boils down to not sending part of the paperwork to the PEB to see IF you meet the criteria and instead having you go through the whole process, to include the C&P exams.

You're PEBLO should have told you all of this.

Here is my post with a little more insight:

Mine too. The orders side will differ slightly because you are Navy but both policies for medical pull from Navy. Orders are currently on hold until May 26 (currently) for all DoD but I see that changing to longer. However, the docs can try and do a medical necessary move and get the GO (Admiral) signature on it to effect that move.

I currently am not holding out hope but I also am not expecting orders to tell me to move in June because the system is so broken.

When did you give your duty station preference for the PEB? When did you get orders and when did you execute them? Im just trying to get an idea of timeline.
