      Jason,
      Hello, I have questions regarding retirement verses medical retirement (MEB process). I have over 20 years of active duty service. I'm currently in WTU and I'm being medically boarded. I keep getting different information in regards to what I will be able to receive. If I'm medical retired, can I still receive a disaibitly check from VA?
      I'm told you can't receive Army disaibitly and VA together.

      Jason,
      I am emailing you today because it seems that you have all of the answers. I was referred to a PEB by ortho for club foot. I am an EM2, I have been in the Navy for 6.5 years with no problems with my foot until I reached this ship 2 months ago. At that point I started having problems with my daily job requirements due to the large number of ladders onboard the LHD. I was on FFG58 prior to this for 2.5 years with no problems. My club foot surgery is noted in my medical record all the way from meps and the doctor said that I was fine. Now the Ortho doctor wrote the PEB as EPTS. I was wondering how this should come out in the end. My paperwork all started today and I would like to be able to plan for the most likely outcome. Any help that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

      I was referred here by my friend who you are helping. I didn't know I might be eligible for any compensation and had postponed my military retirement because I would lose my Tricare Reserve Select. As a Reservist I would not have Tricare retirement benefits until 60, and my civilain employer no longer offers health benefits. If i attempt to get my own policy, I would have a pre-exisiting condition. I was diagnosed with asthma, while mobilized on Active duty, and have no prior diagnosis. I was in fact a PT max for 10 years of my career. I am now only marginally fit to perform my duty position and my health has adversely impacted my abiliy to perform my civilian occupations. I don't know what to do, because I didn' feel my situation was severe compared to the guys coming back from theater, but it is imapcting my family now.

      Hello, its been a while since i've been on pebforum.com. I was in a bad car accident and have also been in school full time. I have a question for you outside of the PEB area and am wondering if you have any advice on the situation. I don't want to post the details online so please email me if possible at daniel.a.hebert@us.army.mil
      The situation involves discrimination based on veteran status and disability in a college classroom. I hope to hear from you. I realize this may not be in your area of speciality, but I am unsure of where to go to weigh this situation. Hope to hear from you soon.

      Thank you,
      Daniel Hebert

      Hi Jason, I contacted you about a week ago regarding my husband's final PPE Review for Marine Corps' TDRL....I finally got through SECNAVINST 1850.4E There is some help there but very little concerning PTSD. My ultimate information goal is to have a list of things that need to be sent to the Marine Corps for final determination as well as what needs to be in this letter from his doctor. Thank you for all of your help.

      jason, i am in the air national guard. during the last four years i have been activated for the iraq war. during this time i started having fainting spells and blacking out. during the last incident when this happened i was rushed to the emergency room and they found the blackouts were being caused by my heart stopping ( sick sinus syndrome ) so i was rushed to surgery and a pacemaker was placed in my chest which will be there the rest of my life. a line of duty letter was completed. i know that they will medically discharge me. i have 20 total years of service in the air guard, with 13 of those years being active duty. upon being medically discharged, will i be able to start recieving a retirement check and medical benefits right away ? and, in your openion, will the medical board rate this condition that i have at 30% or above. thank you for your help sir.

      Hi there Jason. I was referred to this forum by screenname brainwl on VBN. I'm extremely new to this, so please bear with me. My husband is a Marine currently on TDRL for PTSD. He is coming up on his final review and we are in the process of gathering as much info about this as possible. His VA doc has agreed to write the final narrative but I am having a heck of a time trying to find out the format for this letter. HQ has given us some info, but not a lot. If you could help with info or point me in the direction of someone who does, I would be eternally greatful. Thank you so much. ~ Alex

      Hello Jason,
      I was placed on the TDRL 01/01/2005 for Thoracic Outlet Syndrom with Nerve pinching for 40% connected and a 1st rib resection. Now I live in the United kingdom right now with my wife and daughter and am having orders sent to me to go to Landstuhl medical hospital in Germany for my consultation for my PEB. If I can get back to a fit for duty status from the PEB. Does the Marine Corp let people go back to active duty status or do they still like to deny marine's the opportunity to go back in for the medical condition i had, but am now fit for duty from the tdrl. I've been wanting to get back in badly and can't wait to get those order's for my enlistment to start again, but am worried about being let down. any help would be great since the recruiters don't ever have a understanding as to why i was discharged and why

      Jason, Great site and information. Can you comment on my situation:
      I have a question in regards to MED Board. I have 6.5 years active service and 3 years in US Army reserve. I was activated in 2006 to go to Iraq to serve as a Transition Team advisor for the Iraq Army. I was hit with a katusa rocket and medevac out of Iraq. (Yes 2 weeks shy of finishining) The rocket literally landed an arms length away from me. I was processed out of the army, and recieved 60% VA rating. I was offically separated in Sep 08. Now I have some buddies going through the medical board process, and I for the life of me couldnt understand why that was not an option for me? I couldnt be a solider, the way I was trained to be so I choose to get out. Is there a away to appeal to get the the baord to look at my file to see if I could qualify for Miitary retirement? It is all combat related, all service connected. If so, whom would I contact, as I am not with a unit any longer.
      Thanks

      Jason,

      I have been discharged from the Marine Corps for 20 years. I injured my ankle prior to joining the Corps and the injury was fully disclosed. I had a letter from my doctor stating that it was healed. I completed Boot Camp with no issues. After serving 18 months running became very difficult and painful. I was discharged with the following statement on my DD214 "Physical disability existing prior to entry determined by PEB" with a separation code of JFN1. Was my condition considered aggravated or not aggravated?

      Thanks for having this Forum, I've been looking for the answer for a long time

      Pardon me Jason, but one more question. I am a gunner and my primary weapon is a SAW. Whenever I have to carry my SAW (slung on my back), it causes a lot of strain and makes me stiff for days. Should I be on a temporary profile, and if so, any recommendations so I don't hurt my hip/lower back any more than it already is? Thanks.

      Jason, good day. I'm in the ILARNG stationed in Afghanistan until Aug. I ETS in November 09, and I have injured my lower back, more specifically--my right hip is tilted forward and is about an inch higher than my left hip. As a result, my right leg is shorter than my left leg. I had an x-ray back in March that shows the right hip tilted. I have had it adjusted several times, but it keeps moving out of alignment. What kind of VA claim would this be? I have seen the charts for percentages, etc. but I'm not sure exactly which number it will be. Would it be the hip/flail or would it be some other? Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

He is currently 54 years old. Can we move up the re-evaluation of TDRL up? He is at 50% currently. He is PEBLO is in Washington and we are in Arizona. Can we have everything taken care of here?

      Jason,
      First let me thank you for what you do. I am in the MEB process and I am waiting on my NARSUM, if I have a not fit for duty as determined by the MEB the PEB has to assign some type of rating to it. Right? I understand that the rating can be exsited prior to service, or any numerical value that is in the VARSD, but I will recieve some sort of rating. Or am I off the mark? Also, I was injuried in Iraq while on a combat support mission, but it was not "combat" related. I was severlly injuried while on a combat vehicle implaceing barriers for combat support. I was crushed between two of these barriers and draged ten feet or so by the military vehicle. My question is should I qualify for CRSC? Any input would be helpfull I am banging my head against the wall here.
      Thanks

      Jason,

      I received my MEB package last Friday, thus the10 day clock started for my review process. After receiving the package from the PEBLO they called me to tell me my ratingss are wrong and need to be corrected. So, I asked is my 10 days on hold and or void as I do not have the correct information to make an informed decision, as far as an appeal. The PEBLO said 10 day clock is ticking; is this true? I called down to your office today and left an message, but as you do not have staff to assist I figured I better e-mail you ASAP. Also, would you be able to represent me regarding the appeal process?

      Respectfully,
      TSgt Freeman

      Jason, good morning, i was referred to you for the following questions, not sure were else to go but trying to get some help. Questions are a soldier after 34 years of service, been deployed, has a lod pending with no communication os of this date, injured while in IDT status, packet went before the QRB board came back after the rebuttal with non retain. Should his file gone before the QRB board before completely recovered and not been released from any doctor, while the LOD packet is still pending? He is still in recovery period, TAG's letter states being retired as of 30 September. He has not and is not receiving end cap pay. Do you know which regulation states he can not be discharged until after recovery period and/or his file should not have gone before the QRB? He is also a federal technician. thanks

    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.
