      Jason,
      Hello... I'm CW3 in the Army. I have over 20 years of service and I'm going through a med board (currently in phase three). I keep getting different anwsers in regards to which retirement I should take (regular or medical). Can you point me to the regs that might help with this. I believe I will at least least receive a rating of 75% from the Army (I would think this would equal more than regular retirement and my VA pay) what are your thoughts on this?

      Thank you,
      Jerry

      Please read AW2 update.
      Things just went to hell again.
      Once I find out the real reasons for this overrturn of permission to attend, what options are left to me?
      I'm so mad right now, I'm thinking about Congressional and news media.
      But losing a stripe would force me into bankruptcy.
      Any thoughts for next move - other than nothing?

      hey Jason just wanted to give an update:
      50% disability from the army, i went to the VA in Gainesville Fl. to file a claim, i was told by the intake officer that he would file my claim, but it would come out to less than the army gave me.it would take around a year and i would have to choose the one i wanted, that i could not get both because i was not hurt in combat. he also only wanted to list the injuries that the army listed, not everything that i have wrong with me after all the operations i received. he also said that the VA would use the army doctors eval, insteed of doing there own. any help would be great, because i have no idea what to do. but i cant live off what the army gave me, i cant return to my civ. job after 24 years.
      thanks

      Cool. Say would be able to give a guesstimate as to where I would stand with enlistment in the US Army. I am 37 years old. Honorable discharge. My RE code is RE-3P (waiver required) for a kidney inflammation that was present back then in '90. Since then I have not had any re-occurrences and or symptoms, in fact I am in the best shape I have been in ever. Is there a chance that I can re-up this day and age?

      Jason, could you direct me to the proper channels to obtain a copy of PEB from the USCG in 1990? Any address, phone number anything to help expedite the process. Most appreciated. Thanks! Jeff.

      Hello Jason,

      I wanted to first off thank you for all the selfless help you have provided everyone on this board, just reading posts here is an inspiration.
      My problem....I am worried that I am going to be med boarded with 3 1/2 years of AD and am concerned about a couple things. What happens to my benefits? Will I lose access to my Post 9/11 GI Bill if they find that it was a preexisting condition (i dont think it is but I hear horror stories). I'm extremely stressed enough by the medical side and I'm worried I'm gonna lose everything I worked for.

      I talked to maparker earlier on the phone about the whole situation that happened with every and had long chat about the positive that came out of my situation that will hopefully help other in this process. He also told me about your offer to help as he said pro bono if I need you help. I just wanted to thank you for even considering that even though I fairly sure that things will be at least a little more now. I also wanted to thank you for creating this forum to help those who truly dont have a voice. if it werent for this forum I dont think I would be able to say that now I will proably get the chance to complete my medical processing, through all the help that has been give to me over the past few days. I would also like to say that I admire and believe in what people like you and maparker and many other are doing here to help out our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.

      Jason,

      I know that everyone and their mother has a question for you...This is for a friend that has no resources and I don't want him to get screwed the way that I did. He's at Walter Reed and just received his NARSUM. While he was reviewing it there were a couple of discrepancies that he noticed. One was glaring.

      He developed a series of Pulmonary Embolisms in his lungs over a period of time about a year ago and the NARSUM states that they aren't putting anything in the packet about them because they have no idea how the Embolisms started. Well, they started at WR. That much is obvious. He hauled is butt into the ER there from the Barracks.

      What can he do about getting it added? The Docs have already done revisions....So they say.

      BTW, this is a Bronze Star recipient, multi awards, incredible soldier.

      Thanks,

      Jenn

      PS, They also accidentally killed him by overdosing him while he was in the hospital:) Thank God they brought him back. He's a little bitter.

      Thank you for the information. I'm not too familiar with ratings, but I'm not looking for too much disability anyways. I just want the findings to be "unfit for duty" and get separated before my feet get worse. I talked to my military podiatrist earlier this week and he said flat feet will get you out regardless if it is "mild", "moderate", or "severe" and he also said that I would get a little bit of disability. I'd just like to know how accurate that statement is. I know it is an epts condition and again, I'm not looking for a disability paycheck just to get my honorable discharge and full benefits so that I can get out of this limbo and get on with my life. Thank you guys again, you have been very helpful.

      Hi Jason, I just joined because I saw that you have a short list of attorneys to contact that could assist me on my MEB. Could send them to me - zira is confused.

      Thanks. I appreciate it.

      Thanks Jason, Since i last posted what i was going through i sent in my appeal to the ARBA. I received a letter May 14 2009 from them saying that it may be as long as twelve months before i receive notification of the decision on my application. I have edvidence to back my appeal from a recent examination. I was told that eventually i would have to have total knee replacement. Thanks again for your help.

      I have been rated 80% with a 60% payout through VA. I was given a P3 profile and my pulhes are 333213 . I was told i was going straight to an meb in oct 2008.In Feb 2009 I was told that i am going to a fit for duty board. It is now july 2009 and all that i have been assisted with is a point of contact " PEBLO" and nothing else. I have nerve damage and D.J.D in my neck,back,right arm,and right leg from a fall in full gear.Both knees damaged,PTSD.Is this normal for this process??

      Jason it has been a while since posting our conversation. My PHA is complete and my PULHES have changed to 313122. I spoke to the DIV surgeon and she stated because of my PULHES I would be going to through an MMRB. Her response to this was that she is 99% sure they are going to find me FIT for duty. Does this make since? How can they make that determination without having convened the board. How do I force the issue of wanting to go to an MEB/PEB?

      As it stands I am waiting for HRC to contact me so that I can find out what additional documentation is required on my part.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Jason- I need your outstanding advise. I am being PEB'ed and am part of the VA Pilot Program. This past Monday I completed my VA appointments. I have an appointment with a representative from the VFW to do a medical records review in case of medical retirement. I have 19 years of AD time in now and will ask for an LAS to remain in until 20 for concurrent receipt if forced to get out. I have a myriad of problems including severe back issues, fibromyalgia, CFS, sleep apnea w/CPAP, chronic neutropenia, bursitis, IBS, depression and migraines. (And a few other minor ones.) These problems have been identified by the VA. Three of the problems are on the list for the PEB. OK- my question is- is the VFW review of my medical records going to interfer with my ongoing PEB? Should I wait until I get the results back before I meet with the VFW? Last thing- how does it work regarding ratings with so many issues? Thanks for any advise you can give.

    I founded this site in 2007 to provide information and a community for those military members facing disability evaluation.

    I am a former Army JAG officer who represented Soldiers at the Physical Evaluation Board. At that time, I was concerned with the lack of information available to those in the MEB/PEB process. Though I suggested that the Army set up a similar resource, this idea was denied. As I had already decided to leave the Army, I decided to set this site up to do what I think needs to be done- inform people of the process and provide information on compensation and benefits.

    I am an attorney in private practice and I only deal with military disability matters. I provide representation at the MEB/PEB, on administrative appeal, and in the Federal Courts. However, I do not discuss my services or provide legal advice as an attorney on this site. If you are interested in learning more about my services, please visit my webpage: www.peblawyer.com . If you want to contact me regarding professional services, feel free to email me at jason.perry@jeperrylaw.com.
