RetNavyHM, Welcome aboard. You will be an invaluable asset to this forum. Please allow me to start off. From the day of the physical, how long does it take DodMERB to process the package, assuming that the candidate crossed all the "t"s and dotted all the "i"s and there are no follow-ups required? When does the annual back-up usually start? Are follow-up responses processed quicker than the initial package or do they go to the bottom of the pile? How does the dreaded motion sickness question read on the form? As a BGO, should I inform candidates that anyone who reads a book in the back of a car while travelling on a mountain road deserves to get sick? This question has caused follow-ups to several of my candidates but they have eventually passed (after waiting 5+ weeks in May to get the results). Thanks for your help and again, welcome aboard.
