Since I am new, bare me with me as I try to explain. TIS: 19-20yrs Active Duty, MSG, 11Z NO UCMJ, LOR, or other disciplinary actions 16 mths deployment (Iraq) 05/06 Mosul Approved Retirement MEB initiated before approval for retirement orders arrived. Situation: Retire with honor and take what they give me; or follow PEBLO (and others) to allow the MEB/PEB to run its course? Time is money and this day and time, most could care less about some sob story I might describe, thus, the reasoning for me itemizing these details to speed the process. I am so caught here by what to do. There are boys out here in wheelchairs and I have tons of people telling me to follow through with this MEB/PEB. My worst concern: The PEB separates me, cuts me a check, and all I hear is "Next." Ideally, the easiest thing for me is to just retire and go about my business. Thirdly though, I've got the entire MEB telling me to ride the wave - make it past 20yrs and you're good. Its obvious how I refrained from including any conditions that are related to my MEB; I did this not to cloud the initial feedback, if this occurs. I guess if anything, something other than what I've been told would be a start. Any help would be most appreciated!! Thanks!!!
