Learn the process Marines go through when they are medically discharged from the Corps.

Medical Discharge
Posted on 10/27/2022

The Marine Corps demands a lot from Marines, both physically and mentally. Physical training can take a toll on the body. The mental stress, whether a Marine has been in combat or not, can take a toll on the mind. Medical conditions can persist to a point that a Marine would be rendered unfit for duty and then be medically separated or retired.

Thus begins a process to determine whether a Marine is fit to continue their job duties. This process involves two boards for review. One is the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB), and the other is the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB).
