Hey

I’ve been in the AF Reserve for nearly two years. My first year and a half was spent on active orders. During this I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, symptoms started several months after being in. I am now on Remicade and have a LOD for my UC (and my depression caused by it). My NARSUM was sent to AFPC/SG (<—-I think) recently. My PEBLO told me that they will decide my C Code and will probably want to monitor me for a few years before thinking about sending me to MEB. However, my military doc told me that Remicade usually warrants a MEB right away. Can someone help shed some light on this for me? Am I likely to be MEB’d? Timeline? Any previous experiences that might reflect mine? Possible ratings if MEB’d out?

Thank you.

An MEB is likely. The result of the MEB is determined by many facts, some medical.

MEB is all about medical issues.

PEB is a personnel decision where work factors can push gray cases one way or the other. Only the PEB can retire or separate you from the service.

oh okay I see. Do you know how long, typically, the IRILO process takes for a Reservist? I’ve heard that it may be around 4 months.

Unfortunately I have no idea about the timeline for reserve timelines.
