You are correct and another factual based information for Airmen who are on a current profile and MEB status are excempt from the take the FA. Google and research the following Air Force Instruction, AFI36-2905, Chapter 9. Administrative and Personnel Actions Sections, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. " 126.96.36.199 Prohibited Actions: "Commanders may not impose nonjudicial punishment (Article 15, UCMJ) soley for failure to achieve a Satisfactory fitness score." "188.8.131.52 Upon receipt of a Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) permament excemption, a member is not subject to adverse personnel action for inability to take the AF." It is in black and white. I hope that this information and documented resource is helpful. Make a copy of the AFI36-2905, Chapter 9 and sections that apply and carry it in your pocket at all time to educate your unit and other Airmen. I get the entire AF fitness program and buy into if fully. It is geared to assist those Airmen in obtaining a passing, become more fit and healthy. Not to punish someone for not being able to do performe or do the fitness because of a medically diagnosed condition for which they are being evaluated and treated. I would encourage Airmen to inform and educate other Airmen about this AFI and carry it in your pocket. I hope that this posting helps.
