My husband just received his P3 on Thursday (not signed yet)...and we are OCONUS. I know that we will be moved back to the States to finish out this process. I have a few questions that hopefully someone can answer. Sorry if I'm pestering on the site, I just don't want us to get screwed on this. How do they determine PDRL vs. TDRL? And do you still get severance if you get a rating from the DoD? Here's a little background on my husband. His back injury (which has caused degenerative disk disease, along with 2 bulged disks) occurred on his first deployment in 2004. He deployed twice more after that (but has a P2 since 2005). On his last deployment (2009-2010), he developed sleep apnea (from living within feet of a burn pit). Both of his issues are combat related since they occurred downrange. So in what instance would he have to pay severance back if he got any? I'm sure he will be found unfit since he is an MP and can't even wear his duty belt for more than 10 mins since he is not allowed to bear any weight vertically. Thanks so much in advance, and I can't express how much reading through this page has helped already. Also, does anyone have any personal insight as to how long it would take from the time you received your P3 til you PCS'd back stateside??
