      What can I do if I don't want to wait on my re-evaluation? Is there anyone I can contact? HRC? I just wish I would have faught harder to stay in. I have a great job, but I miss serving my country and leading soldiers.

      Jason,
      Is there a way to get off TDRL and back into the army or active guard?

      Jason,

      I recently got back my IPEB findings and they rated me with 20% for my ankle fusion under the VA code 5271. I also had an unfit condition of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). I'm not sure what the RSD should be rated under in the VSARD and it looks like the PEB didn't even rate it. Do you know what that could be rated under? Because I'm going to appeal this finding. Thanks for any information you can give.

      Jason,
      Thank you so much, I have found a couple of things to occupy me, I'll just keep getting up every morning until this is over. My doc said, one day at a time. I'll have to go with that. A medication change has helped as well.

      Many blessing to you and the forum!

      Jason - I would like to begin my VA evaluation but am not co-located with my MEB/PEB board. The DAV reps here at Travis AFB are telling me I have to wait until I have a copy of my DD 214 before I can begin the process. I thought there was a program for AD to jump start the program so that we would be able to receive our benefits upon discharge. Is this not the case? Also, I'm hoping that if I can get the VA eval done it will support my appeal of the iPEB findings of "Fit due to insufficient evidence."

      Yes, you can challenge the evaluation. But it is better to get a correct evaluation before your case goes forward.

      So technically with the doctor not doing three ROM tests...that is something that could be appealed to the MEB/PEB in my favor right?
    8. nlaw37

      With the ROM test, aren't they supposed to do it three times back to back to see if there are changes due to fatigue, pain, etc. I thought I read this somewhere.

      Jason, I am going through TDRL reval and in the initial Meb I was Active Guard and going through treatment when I placed from active to inactive nat guard so fought and was put through a Meb and I was given 40% for bil knees, back, shoulder problems and I was diagonsed while on active duty chronic PTSD and the same time I was diagonsed through the VA 50% and put on unemployable due to my injures and ptsd so my initial meb the board anitated ptsd on the 199 but did not rate it and at the time I was in a VA mental hospital about a month prior to the meb and I did not nonconcur that issue. I am asking can I get the board to rate my pstd issue.

      Thanks for your dedication to us all! I stumbled on this the other day and thought you may want to look at it/include it for the USAF people. It runs through the process for USAF personnel. The link is a direct download. http://www.pdhealth.mil/hss/downloads/afpc_des.pptx

      Jason -
      Had Pt. 2 Physical today and they did the range of motion on me. I am pretty sure he said forward flexion was 75 deg, and backwards 25. I do not know what my side to side was. Of course I was not having a flare up today...but as soon as that was all done i was. He told me I HAD to go past the point of the start of pain. I was ticked. I was hurting bad afterwards. He did not really talk about what happens during flare ups other than what my pain levels were during those. You think I will get screwed on this? This is all ticking me off.

      Jason, Were you on the BHD website years ago? You look familiar. Did you serve in the Military? Either way - THANK YOU for providing the background for this website. While I didn't go through the MEB/PEB process, I have found more info here than anywhere else!

      My question...can you direct me to something that describes the rating process for a cognitive disorder related to a brain injury? Also, I was diagnosed with PTSD prior to retirement, then upon receipt of my disability rating, it says I have "anxiety disorder" but no PTSD. Any ideas how that might have worked out?

      Good Morning, Jason, Et al,
      Getting through the FPEB waiting period is so incredibly rough, the stress is more than I can handle some days. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting through the day to day stuff while you are waiting for the rest of your life to be decided? I'm not doing well with this. PTSD brought me to the MEB process, are there fast tracks for someone that can not handle stress?

      I am currently in the "pre-MEB" and if I get into the MEB/PEB I am thinking of hiring you since the decisions made will be for the rest of my life. That and my injury/illness is not really cut and dry and do not want to be ripped off by the board.

      Thank you Jason,

      I just finished the Physical forms for the PEB. My Doctor made special note of this condition being caused by the number of ladders that I must climb in my daily job requirement. I suppose that should take care of the EPTS chance.
      Thank you very much for your continued assistance.

      Thank you for your vote of confidence. I am a nervous wreck. I have a family to support and getting out with no benefits at all would be devistating.
      So as far as my case goes, basically as long as I get my command to state something to the effect that shipboard work has made my condition worsen and get my PCM on the ship to say something around the same when he does my physical evaluation I really wont have anything to worry about? Also do you have any insight on how severence gets paid out when it does? I was under the impression that it gets paid within days of departing the Navy and that my last paycheck is held for one pay period(month). Does this sound about right? I have done some searching and have found contraticting answers. I know you are going out of your way to help me and I thank you.

      Jason,

      Hello. I'm hoping you may be able to clarify some information that is written on the DA Form 3947. In block 13a, following each of the diagnosis is a hand-written 5-digit number. I have not been able to correlate these numbers to anything in AR 40-501 and do not know where to begin looking for them. Here is the entry under number 1: Low back pain, status post L4-5 diskectomy, degenerative disk disease, and moderate to severe spinal stenosis; AR 40-501, Chap 3-39h. 722.52
      Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    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.
