      Hi Jason, Its been a while since we've chatted and I was just wondering how you are doing? I see post after post and I just think to myself, "how does this guy do it ? " Family, Career, Website...and on and on. You are amazing. I hope your family is doing well, to include your puppies of course! Just wanted you to know that as always I appreciate what you have done for me and so many others. I hope you never feel like your website is thankless....I sometimes read some posts from people that may forget you are volunteering your time and efforts to help them and others-they seem so rude. I just want you to know-and I know you know-there are so many of us who just think the world of you!

      Hi Jason,
      I am currently out of the army went through the med board process. Well my first rating was 70% medical retirement and than went it went through the final satages it was rejected and re-evaluated and than rated at 10% with severance at the time i really didn't know my options and really didn't feel i belonged anymore cause i coulded do my primary job anymore (11B infantry) so i tooK it and got out and went through the VA. As i was fighting for my rating with va with my service officer he had said if i could find my original rating from the PEB board (which i do have) i could fight for the original back. I wasn't sure if you could shed any light on this situation if its true or not. this was back in 2005-2006 my las day of active duty was febuary 26 2006. seem to me it might be to late but if its possible it would prob benifit my family and myself to fight. Thank you for any information you might have.

      Hey Jason,

      Just an update.. I finally am getting to see a civilian doctor at my TMC.. it only took my wife 4 hours of fighting over the phone and two days to get it but we got it. I got an MRI scheduled next week, though now I'm reading that I'll need a Bone Scan to confirm. Anyways on to my question..

      Question: I'm looking at the VASRD.. and it seems that they are going to find that I have osteroarthritis(not for sure yet, as they still have to do an MRI, bone scan..etc) But It says that it'll be 20% unless its based of ROM. Ive been pretty much on bed rest for two weeks now because it hurts to move any way. Front, back , side to side.. How does the ROM work?

      Do you have any more info on how the MEB works? Things I should know to prepare? so I can make sure I'm ready for when it happens and can fight if I need to right away.

      Oh.. one more thing.. ever hear anything about MRSA with the whole MEB/PEB?
      Thanks Jason,

      Hi Jason,
      Looking for information. I am in the Alabama National Guard. I joined back up in 2007 and my unit is getting ready to deploy in 2011. Question: I have just had back surgery, my doctor put in four titanium screws and done a infusion of the L5-S1 joint. The only limitation that he gave me was that I could never do sit-up again. Will I be able to deploy with my unit?

      Hi Jason! Thank you for a great site :) Sorry to bug you but haven't got any real asnwers so I thought I'd just asl you....Went to the PEBLO today got my NARSUM and commanders letter basically stating that I can do my job but that I'm bipolar and need to be discharged. I submitted a couple letters backign me up and my own stating it was a situational life crisis and I have no history of this. I sought help after being raped and now feel like I'm being punished. My commander says he will get my general discharge if I don't go along with it....Did I screw myself by asking for an impartial review or will it just drag it out a little bit?

      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,

      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.

      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?
    10. clutchdrive
      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.

      Will I lose my GI Bill as well? I served the 3 year commitment required and just want to be able to still go to school.

      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.

      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.



      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.
      I need your help. I am getting MEB for crohns and you seem to have some knowledge about some things. Please see my thread under Crohns MEB Help. Thanks

      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.

    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.
