    Fit or unfit?

    How often do PEBs find soldiers fit for duty. I’ve been reading a lot about how they qualify a person to be fit or unfit. But In reality do they keep more people in or do they deem them unfit majority of the time?

    Hey guys, I’m currently in the process of potentially getting med boarded for my heart. I’ve had two open heart surgeries before my military career. Upon enlisting into the military I told them I’ve had two open heart surgeries and they waived me in. But they didn’t dig deep into my civilian...

    How do additional disabilities get added to PEB

    So I am more than likely going to be referred to a PEB here soon for chronic migraines. With that said, it looks like if my case gets sent to a PEB they will evaluate more than just what I’m being boarded for. Is this correct? I also have sleep apnea (with CPAP), depression, and anxiety. What is...

    Can you be referred to a PEB because of adverse side effects of meds?

    I posted a slightly longer version of this elsewhere, but thought the length might have scared people off. Basically my migraine meds might work, but I gained a lot of weight and can’t meet pt standards due to shortness of breath with even the slightest it of running. Am I still looking at a PEB?

    I've been in the Air Force for almost 6 years. I've had the UC for 4 years but I have never had a MEB until now. My doctor says there's a very low chance I'll get the boot since my UC is really mild and I don't have to take strong meds. However, I really want to hear from people who have...
