We have been down for the past few days....This has sucked on my end. Called the webpage/hosting company, got told one thing (a previously noted server issue that did not identify our servers as being affected, but, it would be identified and elevated....and then nothing) and then after no resolution, called back again and got the issue resolved within a few minutes (but, with some BS about having to migrate to a different server given multiple domains on the server). Bottom line, this has sucked. It resulted in a lot of down time and a lot of tech speak as to why things "broke." On the upside, we are now back up. Sorry for the downtime. Sorry for the suck. Will try to drill down further to keep this from happening again. Thanks for your patience!!
I normally post a "Happy Birthday" PEB FORUM Post every year. I missed that this year- for a number of reasons, including being busy with a number of cases, with personal issues and....well, damn, I just missed it. But, since that time (which was May 15, 2016...with the forum being started officially on May 15, 2007), we have come far...this is a listing of our current "stats": "Forum Statistics Discussions: 21,344 Messages: 133,708 Members: 33,454" My main point was to thank all of the folks who have been members and who contribute. I really believe that this site helps a lot of folks (and probably multiples of those who actually register and become members....I really can't put a number on it, but, I suspect that for those who take the time to register, the number of folks who read the forums are probably at least 2 to 3 times that number.... Enough about all of that....who I really want to thank are those who have spent time and invested their effort in helping those along the trail. I am posting a screenshot of the "usual suspects." But, I believe that is not enough...I want to call certain folks out by name: Thank you, one and all: @Warrior644 , @maparker , @grizz13 , @nwlivewire , @ranger2992 , @pittpan2005 , @TSgt Twitch , @scoutCC , @ceilingfan , @usafaviator , @xeno , @Combat Eng , @robs42 , @gsfowler , (There are many others- including those with only one or two posts- that have helped others with your input....you never know how much just a few words of support or encouragement matters...it matters a lot to the young Sailor, Soldier, Coastie, Airman, or Marine or their family who gets some help from your input....to all, Thank you). And thanks the many others who have posted, shared, and...

The Army, in the past few years, have "pre-printed" a number of statements in Block 30 of the DA Form 3947 (which is stated as a "continuation of block #24, which states: 24. I have been informed of the approved findings and recommendation of the board. I agree with the board's findings and recommendation. [OR] I do not agree with the board's findings and recommendation. My appeal is attached as inclosure." Not to be unclear or to be overly polite- this is complete BS. This is what Block 30 states: “Continuation of Block #24: I have reviewed the contents of the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) packet and read the attached (Medical Board Proceedings), Narrative Summary (NARSUM), and the Physical Profile (DA Form 3349). a. ln regard to issues relating to fitness for duty and disability compensation, I understand that the PEB will consider and review only those conditions listed on the DA Form 3947. b. The DA Form 3947 includes all my current medical conditions and whether or not they meet medical retention standards. c. The conditions which do not meet medical retention standards are properly listed on the following three documents: DA Form 3947; the Narrative Summary; and the Physical Profile (DA Form 3349). d. All documentation of military medical care in my possession has been provided to the Physical Evaluation Board Liaison Officer for inclusion in this MEB. e. I agree that this MEB accurately covers all my current medical conditions. f. lf I do not agree with any of these statements and/or I do not agree with the contents of the MEB as reflected in my election at item 24, above, I am aware of my right to an independent Medical Review and my right to appeal. If I do not concur, I have provided all my disagreements and concerns in the attached appeal.” I vociferously object to this language being inserted into the DA Form 3947 in...
