    reserves and bonuses

    sorry that i am just now seeing this. he asked his point of contact about this and she stated it would be 3-5 weeks after his EAOS when he switches from active to reserves. she just takes a little time to respond [several days] so figured we could ask here. thank you!

    VA claim assistance

    thank you so much for this information! we really appreciate it :) i wonder if the physician who did the sleep study would be willing to do this - especially since he has a CPAP alongside of sleep apnea. thanks again

    VA claim assistance

    the claim itself seems to speak for itself, but we have been told time and time again: rule #1: claim what you can prove rule #2: never ever ever ever [their words, not mine] file a VA claim without a VSO again, we just want to make sure he receives the ratings he should get without having to...

    VA claim assistance

    thank you for this information. i will have to journey over to the site you linked to ask as well. our biggest concern is him doing this without a VSO. we have called the VA itself, who directed us to the VBAT, who gave us a number to call - called them - they said no.....told us to call our...

    VA claim assistance

    for those who do not know my husband's story - he was medboarded and went all the way to a formal board and was deemed FIT the entire way through because he made sailor of the year two years in a row several years ago. [sorry to those that know the story, but to those who don't know the story -...

    transitioning during covid-19 - questions.

    no need to apologize at all, charlie! you were such a wealth of information when he was going through the medboard process so i had a feeling you may have misread OR knowing me, my words just came off in such a way. he just felt like he didn't get a fair shake during the medboard with the board...

    transitioning during covid-19 - questions.

    thank you - when my husband went up for his initial medboard the VA had him tentatively rated at 80%. since then he has received a diagnosis of emphysema [non-smoker] which i am sure will change that. will definitely look into every thing and continue to keep people updated here on the site...

    transitioning during covid-19 - questions.

    as far as working directly with the VA goes, we've been told that this isn't the best idea and it's best to work with a VSO if at all possible. [obviously we do not know because we've never gone through this before] but he is currently looking into what he needs to do in order to sign up for...

    transitioning during covid-19 - questions.

    i'm not sure what you mean - i wasn't implying that the VA made the decision to find him fit - we know where those decisions came from. what i was saying is that given the experience he had with the FPEB, etc. he would like guidance/assistance with this to get the rating he deserves. sorry if it...
