      I have been a member of the of the Air Force Reserve for 32 years. I was rated at 70% for PTSD and 30% for migraines by the VA in April. I was also given P&T and IU as well. I gave the award letter and my medical records to my unit. Six months later I have not been referred to the MEB. How long should I wait? Thank you for your time on this.

      TSGLI paid initially for 30 days ADL, but further payment is repeatedly denied. I was injured in 2005, filed my claim when I became eligible in 2011. My wife is my VA Caregiver, I still have issues. I was initially rated at 0% by the Army. I am rated 100% permanent and total by VA, medically retired by PDBR. My latest TSGLI denial says my appeal must now go to ARBA. I appreciate any help.

      i was referred to you by dad who reads all your threads. Myself and my husband have a question regarding the severance pay that is being offered My husband situation is he is getting kicked out for overweight. When we receive the severance pay will it have to be paid back once he starts to receive his VA disability. And if so is there a regulation or code that shows this.

      LTC Parker - I'm sorry to bother you but I was hoping you could provide some clarification on something. Back in 2013 SecDef said all PTSD cases that had their rating dropped during a PEB from 9/11/01 until April 30, 2012 would get a letter so their case could be reviewed. I never did get a letter and I fall in that group. Any idea who I would contact?

      In the NG with over 20 yrs and a tech for 15. The VA has rated me SA 50%, Dep 30%, Asthma 30%, and more. Migraines 30% is pending. I was flagged at the SRP with temp profiles for asthma, migra and high BP. My case mgrs told me I would not go through a MEB. They said if you have over 20 yrs in the NG you would be retired/admin discharg or you will need a med improv plan from your Doc saying you are OK. Is this legal?

      for my family and I but my thoughts are a bit torn. I understand COAD is not a given but just would like some insight on my fellow vets

      I am a 18 year active duty soldier and just received word from the PEB that I have to Med Retire. My AW2 rep is saying COAD is an option but I'm a bit torn and not sure if it would make sense. The Army has rated me at 80% and VA rating is 100%. Will CRSC cover my retirement that I would lose for not retiring at 20 years. I'm a senior NCO and love the military for everything it's has done

      The question I have is why some medical retiree gets a retirement check minus taxes and others don't? Know I did do some research and I was informed it depeends on the percentage granted by the U.S. Army. I was granted 30% after I was medically discharged and I as a civilian launched a complain with IG. Afterward I was enrolled in the TDRL program where after 2 years I was given my permanent retirement.

      Hey Mike, After 3.5 years in this process, I have finally received notice from DFAS of my retired pay. I have a 80% rating from the VA (received 70% DOD) all combat. Quick question: with my DOD retirement amount being approx. $5900, VA $1600, yos 26 years (LTC) I am figuring there is no CRSC amount I would receive. Is this correct?

      sir good afternoon. wondering if you can give me some objective advice on whether it's value added to fight my most recent meb or let the process run it's course? (per my post yesterday).i understand from other threads on the condition (a.spondylitis) you're an experienced point of contact/ subject matter expert on it. i'm interested/looking forward to your response and again thank you kindly for your help!

      Question is there any help out there to appeal the DOD PBDR rating. They didn't follow congressional guidelines.

      Sir, you wouldn't happen to have an example of what an appeal to the AFBCMR would look like by chance would you?

      I have several issues that were unfitting that were rated by the VA prior to discharge, and I was discharged 10% with severance for the same condition that the VA rated as 70%. I was on the legacy MEB program and I was the last case at Beale AFB before they went to the IDES.

      Mike, where can I find the paper Snap03 referred to in the "Unfit just because I'm a pilot" thred?

      Sir, I have a question concerning non-medical assessment. 18 years AD in the Navy and I'm in no way looking to be found "unfit" at MEB. My command didn't fill out the NMA correctly and never even talked to me before submitting it. Which I thought was odd because I'm on recruiting and maybe have talked to my CO 3 times in 1 year. I have no history of misconduct. Is there a way to dispute what was put in NMA?
