Welcome! I joined this chat to get some insight into my discharge upgrade case with the ABCMR. This is my 3rd try, but this time they have requested a review by the medical advisory board. Can anyone tell me why? And the weight that the board has on cases?

In order to get some insight or input, you are better served by opening your own thread and giving some background information. Your general question above does not supply enough information to provide any meaningful insight or thoughts about your own situation.
 
Thanks for having me. I really enjoy passing on knowledge so it will be a joy to continue that as a moderator. I am still going through the VARR process myself so I still have lots to learn about the complete IDES process.

Background

My name is Brad and I have been in the military since 31 May 2001. Spent 8 years on active duty at Whiteman AFB working as a jet engine mechanic on the B-2. Crossed over to the Guard after 8 years. Did it as a full time technician for a year, then switched over to a traditional guardsman when I got a new civilian job with Northrop Grumman. Got my commission in 2012 as an Air Battle Manager for the Kansas Air National Guard, but I have kept my B-2 connection with my full-time civilian employment.

I worked aircraft maintenance for Northrop for several years, until landing my current aircrew instructor gig in 2015. Been working the dual track career for awhile now, but I am looking forward to finishing the IDES process and going to work for Northrop in an actual full-time capacity without something else pulling my attention away.

I current live about 45 minutes to the east of Kansas City and enjoy fixing things. I have a part-time electronics repair business I operate out of my basement. I am married with four beautiful girls. I accept venmo payments inlieu of condolenses to help pay for future weddings. :)

Looking forwarding to getting to know you all.

Brad
