  • Kim,

    I replied to your post (which asked a similar question). I think he may have a case for a fit finding and continued service in the Coast Guard. If he has support of his chain of command and has performed well with his disabilities he has a stronger chance. However, there are risks. He could end up with separation with severance pay. I think he really needs to evaluate his condition and the risks and then make a decision.
    If I can answer any questions, please feel free to ask.
    My husband has just been found unfit by an informal medical review board. Last year he under went surgery for a pituatary tumor. He has lost three hormonal functions and is on three medications. The Coast Guard wants to place him on the temporary disability retirement list until he becomes stable. Also, the board has indicated that this condition is at a 40 percent disability rating. My question is, is this a high enough rating and should he fight to stay in? With the medications he is mentally and physically very capable to handle his job and any situation that arises.

    The situation is very devestating he has served for 13 years as a Bm1 and is one of the top in his field. He loves his job and can't imagine doing anything else.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated.
