      Hi xeno,
      I noticed you posted a link awhile ago that linked to examples of commander's letters for MEB. Thread was titled "Writing my own cammander's letter?" The link is: http://www.pebforum.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=9
      The link doesn't work anymore, but I was wondering if you knew where I might find those examples.

      Do you know if VA Caregiver benefits legally be taken away without due process of law? The VA is sending notices either taking away or reducing benefits without so much as a physical examination. I'm 100% P&T SMC with Aid & Attendance and ours has been reduced by 75% effective immediately although we can appeal. The ramifications are causing our heads to spin.

        I have the same question, but don't see the answer anywhere, unless I missed it....

      hello, i'm sorry to send the private message, but i wanted to get correct information, i have been hearing so many different stories, ok, i have presently 34 years of military service 22 active duty and 12 reserve, i can retire at any time, i qualify for the final pay i came in the military in 1977 , I am presently a E-8 , i was told the meb would not hurt my chance, going through meb for cervical spondylosis , lumbar spondylosis , ashma, bronchosteoarthritis right hip, and left shoulder. I'm not sure if i well benefit from this, also i took at severance pay back in 1992 when i got out the first time, and i understand that i well have to pay that back first. Please give me some insight, thank you very much for your time.

      Can you repost or send me a copy of your MEB rebuttal?

    5. gbsepter
      Could you forward me your MEB NARSUM APPEAL Letter. It appears not to be uploaded to the system properly. I am in the start of my 90day window for the MEB and they summarily saw me. So I would like to use or see your file to be safe on the report from the MEB.

      Thanks gbsepter@verizon.net

      I just had my follow-up appt with the referral GI dr. His "impression" (or what is being faxed to the base) is: "left sided mild/resolving colitis". There are no other comments on the form.

      Probably not as often as I should. Thanks for the reminder, I will do one now...I am a bit concerned that the db comes out as a bunch of xml unintelligible gobbledyguk. Let's cross fingers I never have a db issue.

      Great bio....Dr. Evil quote is hilarious...."I invented the question mark..."

      Mids are great as long as it isn't 10-12 hour shifts. Get off as people are just getting into work, and wake up before most people are out of work. fair trade. :)

      Yea, I'm back on mids now. Less people to deal with ;)

    The details of my life are quite inconsequential.... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery.

    Don't mistake my candor for lack of tact. ;)


    Here are some good quick links:

    Lots of question have already been answered, you can search the forum for already posted info, via: Search

    Severance pay for ratings <=20% = Years in service X base pay X 2 = severance pay (- taxes).

    30% or higher rating = retirement @ percentage rated . Unless you qualify for regular retirement then = whichever is higher.


    Notes: VA ratings (and payment) is totally separate from DoD ratings.
