I just started the MEB process about 3 weeks ago and had my initial meeting with my PEBLO last week. My 1SG informed me today that there has been discussion of administratively reducing my rank to SPC (I'm a SGT) because my overweight appearance reflects poorly upon the NCO corps. I am extremely overweight and have been enrolled in ABCP for about 8 months, but my problems with my weight are due to my medical issues which I'm now being boarded for. Is a rank reduction authorized? Is this something I should discuss with my PEBLO? Should I go to JAG?
