Good morning, 2 years ago I was given a VA rating of 100% T/P for PTSD. I have been going to a counseler at the VA for 9 + years and on several meds for my issues. I am still in the reserves and I have a mental health profile. How am I still in the reserves?
Hello, I am going through something similar to you as far as TDRL re evaluation taking me below the retired limit. Were you originally rated for sciatica during your initial PEB process? For me I was only rated 20% for my DDD and then my left and right sciatica got denied for being unfitting. Then I did a formal board and the board added it which put me at 30%.
