I am lost. I am a reservist in the USMCR. My unit was activated to deploy to Iraq in support of OIF. While we were doing our predeployment training I was injured pretty bad. We were doing room clearing excercises. My unit is originally from Texas and was doing all of its training in North Carolina. I was sent back to my parent command to receive treatment for my injuries. (Oh and the start date of my orders was 20040105.) I have been on active duty since then. My date to be transferred to the TDRL is scheduled to be 30 January 2009. My injuries were determined to be combat related by the PEB. I was told by my peblo that while I am on the TDRL i am to receive no less than 50 percent of my base pay. I was also told that since my disability is combat related(under conditions simulating war) my retired pay is supposed to be Tax Free. Is that true? Oh and my disability rating from the Marine Corps is 30%. How does that work? Oh I a Corporal with about 5years of total service with 4years and seven months of that being active duty time.
