Findings DoD 40% VA 100%

Four conditions left off that we're not evaluated by QTC (specialty diagnosis). Not likely these conditions will be found unfitting.

Going to talk to the MEB counsel to see if I should request that TBI be found unfitting since two conditions directly related to TBI have be found unfitting.

1432 days from arrival at WTU until 199 completed

WOW! And I thought I had spent a lot of time getting through this process!

I spent a total of almost 4 yrs. 9 mths. between WTU & CB-WTU - that's from Day 1 to discharge (PDRL).

Gosh, and you still have more time to go!

Hang in there Buddy.

Are you satisfied your 199 is accurate and complete?

V/R,

My 199 is not accurate, however I will need to think about whether or not it will be worth it to carry this out any further.

My condition(s) are not combat related. I'll need to do some mathematical calculation(s) to see if I will pursue a informal PEB and/or one time VA reconsideration.

What is next on my radar is to see whether or not I am on a centralized promotion list and if I will be promoted on my last day.

Since I have proposed ratings I will immediately try to initiate chapter 35 for my children in college.

I begin Voc Rehab on Monday so everything is coming full circle.

100% VA
40% DoD
SSDI recipient
Voc Rehab
Chapter 35 for dependents
Cal Vet tuition waiver for dependents
20 year letter, CDRP at reserve retirement age minus 6/7 years (depending on final out date)
No more CBWTU and calling into a phone recorder that will never be answered daily
