    Help please, I'm stuck on the Severance tax issue

    The unfitting condition was not combat related. Yeah, I had to read that whole thing over and over again as it seems contradictory to me. The way I read it is that if you receive a VA rating for the disability that you were separated for, you can recoup your taxes; however, you cannot classify...

    Help please, I'm stuck on the Severance tax issue

    So this is the situation. I was medically discharged from the Marine Corps last year after 12 years of service. The unfitting condition was rated at zero percent. I received a severance payment of 84k, of which, roughly 32k was taken out as taxes. I am wondering if I am entitled to amend my...

    Help! Stress Fracture in BCT!!!

    Agree with everything benefit wise Ed said on this. I would also add that the best thing you can do for your husband right now is be there to support him and try to keep him in the mindset that once he is healed, he is going to have to complete the service that HE signed up for. The last thing...

    I totally understand where your coming from. My case is at the same exact point as yours. As frustrating as the lack of proactiveness is, you gotta take into account caseload, manpower, and the fact that some of these peblo's probably get told the same thing we do when they call the boards "It's...

    Baliw1974, Saying no on the NMA will most likely let the PEB know that you do not want to continue service. I dont think there are any illusions about the PEB process and how tough it is. I also put no on mine for the same reasons you have. Fact is, now is a time to be completely honest with...

    Wow, I've been a Marine or 12 years now, what it sounds like is they are trying to find any way to screw over your husband. The cannot admin sep him due to his weight, and i dont think they can admin sep him from a competency review board. What it sounds like to me they are trying to do is...

    Upcoming MEB; (2)Pulmonary embolisms and DVT

    Im going through the same deal except i have not had a PE, just chronic dvt's in my lower extremeties. From what I know, yes a PE will rate a higher percentage unless they determine that its not service connected.... I think the reason for the 0% rating may have been because they did not...
