i just had a briefing with my commander last week for my commander impact letter. how much weight does this carry when the FIT/UNFIT decision is made? we both agreed to Do Not Retain for a shoulder injury, asthma, sleep apnea, and heart arrhythmia

It depends of the conditions and their severity. I think the commanders impact effect cases on the board between fit and unfit.

Commander's letter will have weight in terms of fit versus not fit in terms of if you can do your job or not. But its not like it will have bearing on each condition. Those are medical decisions, not up to the Commander in any form.
