AF Policy Guidance for Enrollment in the Legacy Disability Evaluation System 1.0

LDES, Legacy referral, DES

  1. Jason Perry
    This is the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Manpower and Reserve Affairs) titled "Policy Guidance for Enrollment in the Legacy Disability Evaluation System." This is the authority used to refer members to the LDES.

    I think, in some instances, the authority is incorrect in that it conflicts with the DOD Instructions mandating referral to the Integrated Disability Evaluation System. (The Secretary of Defense, and his designees, are superior authority to the Service Secretaries and his or her designees).
