LETS GO PATRIOTS!!! Jan 19, 2014

      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.

      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.

      I am on a TDRL and I am wondering if I can recieve CDRL. I have a VA rating of 70% but I am under 20 years. I have read the rules but I am unsure. Can you please help me.

      Hello Jason,

      My husband was rated 100% by the VA and all of it service-connected. He is currently on TDRL but want him on PDRL. He has 24 years total service. 9 Years Active Duty. 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?

      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.

      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?

      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

      Jason I am currently an Army Reservist CPT with 7.5 years active duty service. I separated in July 08 and joined the Reserves. I am currently rated 80% by the VA with that I decided that my illness from my 3 deployments has gotten progressively worse. I have had 3 surgeries on my sinuses since 2004 and am scheduled for another end of June. I am due to attend a PHA appt on the 18 May. My unit is pressing for an MMRB. My disabilities are Chronic Sinusitis, Asthma, and a knee injury. I never had these problems before my 3 deployments with the Active duty. I am being told that since AC never did a LOD, if they decide to put me out (which is what I am looking for) I will not receive any benefits. Can you please provide some guidance? What should I be fighting for? I know that I want to press to be retired but how do I press that issue?
      Any guidance would be appreciated.

      Hi Jason,
      I'm a Recruiter in the ARNG on ADSW orders, waiting on an AGR Board.
      I was treated by a Civilian Hospital and Dr for rapid heart beats over 240 per minute in Jan 2009. The Hospital reported that bloodwork indicated a heart attack and a Cardiac Ablation was performed. The Army Dr. informed (Fit For Duty),but with a Temp P3 pending MEB Eval. Scheduled to attend AGR board when I return,but my NCOIC informed me I can not go AGR w/a P3.
      My questions:Can they Terminate ADSW orders & send me back to an M-Day status? (Per NCOIC) What can MEB do? Do I collect Works Comp or Unemployment? Is a Heart Attack & Cardiac Ablation enough for Medical Discharge? I have been on ADSW for 1 year. LOD occured Jan 2009.
      Should I get an Attorney? I want to stay active.
      Please advice as What I should do or expect. My Chain of Command is all about the Recruiting and not about taking care Soldiers.

      I am new to this site but seems like it has an abundant amount of information. I am currently in the navy I have been in for 5 years and have had back problems for some time I had a procedure called IDET done on it in 2007 during which time I was on LIMDU, this seemed to make things better for a little over a year, at which time I started feeling pain again and wanted to make sure everything was okay and went to see the doc and got an MRI however they found that again the same location that they fixed before is messed up. L5/S1 herniated disc with annular tears and degenerative disc disease at L4/L5 and L5/S1. I am on Limdu again 2nd period and was supposed to transfer per doctors orders to facilitate treatment however there are no funds to transfer me. LIMDU ends in the middle of summer and will be at 12 mos and will be referred to PEB. This is a daily dilemna any advice that you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

      Hey Jason I am writing to ask what else we can do to help my husband and his situation. It seems that he is just being tossed aside and the Army is not taking responsibility for him when technically he is still in the army. I understand that he can not collect both VA and Army but I mean he was only awarded 30% for his injuries but yet the VA has him at 100% I do not know where to go or what to do....

      Hello Jason,

      I just need a second opinion on my stituation. I have a formal hearing scheduled for May 13. My JAG lawyer is looking over my case now, but it doesn't hurt to get some more input. If you could get back to me when you have the time, it would be appreciated. My email is GTC526@aol.com. Thanks and take care.

      My question has nothing to do with medical, but while researching a medical issue for one of my soldiers I noteced something you did that may give you a unique insight to my own dilemma. I am currently a 2LT in the reserves and I very much want to be on active duty. I noticed that you had served a time in the NG before you went active duty. I have contacted numerous people in my CoC and HRC as well as my career manager and no one seems to know anything about how to transfer a reserve officer to active duty. Do you have any guidance in this area? Thank you.
    18. Gonthier24
      My husband recieved word back from CRSC. They are not going to pay him because the army paid mark while he was collecting both VA and Army. I am just extremely confused on what is going on. I feel like my husband is not getting any support and if I am wrong he is still part of the army. He is still TDRL...I don't know where to go anymore or what to do but we are in serious need of help and don't knwo where to turn anymore.

      I see other posts, and was wondering how someone would get a rating from the VA proir to seperation from service? I was told that I wouldn't even be seen by the VA until I have been seperated. Uugghhh! So much to learn! And running out of time! I wish I found this place sooner!!!!

      Hi Jason, I spoke to you the phone previously. I was found fit for duty (final) on Thursday, April 16. My unit now wants to weigh me in. I have a note from my doctor stating that my medicine causes weight gain. Is there anything in regs/law regarding this? Thanks.

    Home page:
    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.
