    Jason,

    I was reading through one of the mental health forums and found one discussion about an E-7 military member that was hospitalized and diagnosed bipolar. In one section of the discussion, you explained that some people you've known were hospitalized and then later were found fit and returned to duty. What kind of issues were they having and what assisted them in returning to duty?

    thanks

    Ryan

    Jason,

    I can tell that you are an expert on these processes. Would it be possible for me to e-mail you my packet and give me your expert opinion. I am active duty army e-7 with 18 years and 3 months of active duty time, I have a lot to lose. The packet does have all of my personal "business" and such in it but I completely trust you. Thanks...

    I'm active duty Air Force and had surgery for a brain tumor over six months ago. Athough working normal duty, I have been profiled ever since. I was just assigned a PEBLO an told my MEB will be processed soon. I understand every situation is different, but I need advice or news of a similar case. Everyone has just given generic "checklists" and I feel like my career is in limbo!

    Thankyou in advance.
    Yes I was just wondering I am in the air force and they diagnosed me with asthma and I hurt my right wrist in Iraq, do they discharge people for asthma. My Commander basically told them in a letter he does not feel I should be retained to the ipeb. I am wondering if that letter also plays a big part of it also they sent my package down June 5 and they came back on Aug 18 for my range of motion on my right wrist, I am just wondering do you think they will retain me and how much longer will they take for them to make their decision my peblo faxed them my rom paper on Aug 20 thank you for your help.
    Jason,
    I am worried that me ex-wife is going to try and get part of my severance pay. She has already asked for 8K to help her out. Also, we are going through property division right now and agreed to sign an agreement outside of court and submit it to the judge. Should I have an attorney draft the document for me? I am worried that I won't write it correctly and it won't finalize property division, giving her the right to re-open the case to ask for more money. Also, my number is (302)233-0649 or (302)677-6044.
    Thanks,
    Tim

    Jason,
    I'll hit you up as soon as I know what is going on with the Air Force. I am so frustrated with them leaving me in limbo like this, I can hardly take it. If my Commander would have let me keep selling Real Estate, I wouldn't have minded the wait, but now I am still paying all the Realtor fees, but making zero extra money. I just wish they could tell me the outcome. What do you do? Hurry up and wait, I guess.

    Jason,

    My husband has served in the Coast Guard for 13yrs and last year he underwent surgery for a pituatary tumor. He has lost three hormonal functions and is currently taking three medications to replace those lost functions. Also he may still have some residual tissue left.

    Last week we received a letter stating that he is unfit for duty and will be placed on the temporary disability retirement list until he is stable or able to be permently retired. They've placed him at a 40 percent disability rating.

    My question is, is should we accept this and move forward or should we fight to keep him in? He's a Bm1 and is currently number one on the service wide and is both ashore and afloat officer in charge qualified. We stand to lose so much, all the hard work it took to get to this point and now he's deemed unfit. My husband loves his job and is having a hard time seeing himself doing anything else.

    We also are going to lose 75 percent of his pay and are very overwhelmed by the enormity of the situation.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Jason,
    Is it just me or have I been reading a lot of posts regarding MEB and PEB shenanigans when it comes to patients on coumadin? Every medical doctor I have spoken to has said that the drug is entirely incompatible with military service and yet I am seeing reports (mine included) of fit findings. Is this a new issue, or has it always been this way?

    Good morning Sir,

    My PCM is starting a MEB on me for Neurogenic Bladder due to nuerological diseaese, herniated discs, depression, and migranes (I also have sleep apnea). My PCM is a young Doc with little experience writing NARSUM and I do not want to be incorrectly represented. Are there such things as sample NARSUMs that Docs can use as reference when they are drafting theirs? Thank you for your help
    Jason,
    I am an AD E6 stationed in Kings Bay GA. I currently hold the position of LIMDU coordinator for my command. We have a 29.5 year Mater Chief who currently has a PEB dictated for a neurological problem that has pretty much incapacitated him for the last year. He is deaf without his hearing aid and is in a wheel chair. He has some other idiopathic diagnoses and the meds he has been taking for a year now aren't helping. I was told by our personnel department, med boards office, BUPERS, and D.C. not to pursue a PEB because he was so close to HYT that they would just find him fit to retire and send him on his way. Myself and the member feel that if he has a disability (not preexisting) then the Navy should recognize that disability commensurate with his 29.5 years of service. If anyone is UNFIT, it's this guy. It's really sad because he is a god-like figure in this area and would give you the shirt off his back. He's a pretty big guy so that shirt covers alot of people. We also intend to appeal if he is found fit. Either way he is out in APR 09. I read your blob on Fit vs Unfit and it explained alot. I think it is the reason the med boards office told him the PEB was for young people not old salts. Do you think we are fighting a loosing battle? I am writing his NMA tonight and submitting it through my COC for chop. Any more key words and tricky phrases?
    Jason,
    I was just reading your profile. I noticed that you are an attorney. I am considering going for an MBA or pursuing a JD. What are your thoughts about job prospects in law? A friend of mine passed the bar in Delaware and couldn't find a job in the local area. In addition, how difficult was law school and passing the bar? With all that I went through to get my BS in Computer Science, not sure that I want to enter another difficult program. I think it might be too difficult to work full-time and complete a JD.
    Your inputs are greatly appreciated,
    Tim
    Jason,

    My phone works again!!! :D

    Somehow the plan got changed, that's why it dropped caller I.D. and voicemail, so I just changed it back. Ha, so feel free to call it again. Man, what a pain it was when it wasn't working!
    Tony,

    Thanks for the compliment! It has been great to watch us grow and reach out to more people. I am just catching up from my trip, so I will respond to the PM shortly. Good to hear from you, man. Hope all else is well!
    Jason,
    Just wanted to say your site is looking great. It's cool to see the growth from when I joined till now. I noticed you are now takig donations, I will be contributing real soon. I shot you a PM and an email, I elaborated more in my PM.
    Thanks
    Jason,

    Even though I cannot deploy, I still feel that I am fit for duty. Since I have reclassed into Human Resources, I can still contribute to the Army. My current Chain of Command and past leadership are writing letters of recommendation to the Board on my behalf. Where else do I begin with the appeals process.

    Jason,

    I am new to your site. I just received the results of my PEB and I am not happy. I had a pacemaker implanted in March of 08 due to passing out spells causing my heart to stop. Since my pacemaker placement, I have had no other incidents .Because of this, I am reclassing from 31E (Corrections) to 42A (Human Resources). Despite my wishes and the recommendations of my doctors and Chain of Command to allow me to finish my time in the Army, I have over 13 years of service, the PEB has recommended that I be released from service with a severance and 10% of my base pay. The Board rated me for a neurological condition and not my pacemaker. How do I begin to fight it. I've tried to contact the SJA at Ft. Lewis and no one has returned my phonecalls. I need help. Can you help me? I AM LOST AND CONFUSED.
