How can I contact you via the telephone? I was some information on the process that the US Coast Guard used in my discharge proceedings. I have a lot of questions but I’m not sure we’re to get my answers. I’m looking to update my discharge rating. Also, if I was medically retired, would it be reflected on my DD214?
Hello Attorney Perry,
Im active duty and had a TBI last fall. I have not been to work since.
I was referred to a PEB for: 1. Cognitive Dysfunction, Depression, Chronic Headaches
2. Lower back pain, lumbar spondylosis, and degenerative disc
disease. My civilian MD also diagnosed Sciatica but I didnt put it on my initial claim. Can I still add it? Or must I file a new claim? DBQ? Thank you!
Hello Mr, Perry i am so sorry to bother you so late i was just wondering if i could get some help understanding what my Qa phase went into today. The va finished my claim and sent it back for QA on the 18th of September and it’s been in the Qa phase since they said. Today i spoke with the Dod office there and the young gentleman said he doesn’t know what it means But it’s now QA suspense.
Could you tell me how to go about writing a personal statement to appeal an unfitting condition?
I’ve read it can hurt my case but the lawyer wants to give it a try.
Would I hurt my va ratings? I’m sitting at 80% va and only 10% dod.
We are trying to move ptsd to unfitting condition. It is not combat related and I only have 3.5 years in service.
I am not sure what to do, I was placed on TDRL in 1996 from the Marines due to a TBI, we went in front of the PEB board in 1998 in which they found me unfit at 30% disabled and put me back on TDRL for what we assumed would be til 2000-2001, which would have been the 5 year mark. I never once received any evaluations from day one of being placed on TDRL. I was discharged 6-1-1999. I’m 100% T&P VA. Help?

I am considering a career change. I am an active duty major, with 14 years TIS and 3 years TIG. I am planning on reverting to warrant officer to finish out my career. It is likely my rank when I apply for retirement will be CW2. For decision purposes, what would my High three be based on, and what should my retirement rank be?

I have an opportunity for a job driving for a local company making between 30k-35k a year, well below the 80%. Question is, i am a CDL holder, have been for 10 years, will OPM take my annuity if i drive. I am so confused and need some help....OPM nor anywhere else has good info....everything is too vague. thnx
I am in the MEB process and I have not been paid for my visits there is a lot of confusion on how one gets paid. Is there on person that is responsible for the orders? My unit says it is not their responsibility, the PEBLO say the same and finally MEDCOM says "not Me". Any advice?
My orders states reason: medically disqualified, not result of own misconduct, assigned to: The Retired Reserved. I have less than 20 years but more than 15 years of service (14 AD & rest reserve). Will I receive the 15 year letter or does my orders need more info on it? I retired in 2003 but now am trying to get my paperwork in order, after reading some of the questions on here, getting a little nervous.
