  • MaParker, Just began the PEB process at 18 yrs 7 months. Primary reason is Spondyloarthropathy. For someone that wants to continue to retirement, should I wait for the results to submit statement that Anthrax vaccines may be directly related to this condition. Currently on Humira and MTX and I can no longer fly. I appreciate any assistance.
    My service connected disabilities are making it very difficult for me to continue drilling. I will have the option to either take the discharge or pursue the MEB/PEB route. Could this result in the lowering of my already established VA rating of 80% if they determine my injuries are less severe then the VA did.

    Did you receive the answers you were looking for?
    I retired in 2013. I was found medically unfit to continue being a pilot after my 3rd tour in Afghanistan. I thought I was going to be medically retired, but literally days before my retirement they said I didn't qualify even though my medical condition ended my flying career. I was rated 40% by the VA. Can you advise me if I have any recourse?
    MaParker, I have a couple question, I have been reading your forums and you are the most knowledgable person I have found while scanning several sites. I am confused on how I am to proceed? All the guidance I am getting for several CSMs and other NCOs are all different and I do not want to be miss lead in the wrong direction. Is there a way I can send you my email or something... Please advise
    I have been to Afg, IRAQ and taken alot of Anthrax vaccines. I am coming off of 12 months of LIMDU, diagnosed with spondy an taking MTX and humira and as an aircrewman my rheumatologist is submitting me for med brd at 18.5 years. During the C&P and only minor discomfort what could the outcome be? At one point this affected all my joints and can barely move but the meds work.
    How does a National Guard soldier qualify for CRDP? My husband has 17 "good" years. In that 17, is including 5 active, and 12 National Guard. He currently has an 80% VA Disability rating, and we are trying to determine the timing to initiate an MEB.
    I was told I am being retired at 40%, and being placed on PDRL. I was told be the PDBR that ARBA sent my letter out on the 23 of October, and ARBA told me after responding to my email that the letter may not have been mailed out on that date. From that date until now I still have not received my letter, and I wanted to humbly know if you have a contact to ARBA?
    Currently in the process of rebutting my ratings. It has been a bad experience since then and now I am about to land in DC next week for my formal board. I can't trust anyone who supposedly represent my case and there to help me. I learn a lot from your posting and wish you can be my counselor throughout this whole ordeal of nightmare.
    I am receiving SMC-S...I started receiving this one I was grant 100% for a combat related injury...But I have other disabilities that are non combat that is 60% or more...Will SMC-s be a part of my CRSC rating when it is done.
    I am on the tdrl for a disability at 70%..I recently had a C&P exam at the VA which rated me 100 p &T. does the army Peb have to grant me 100%.
    Received severance pay (17years). VA: Rates me at 80% Sleep apnea - 50%, legs 10%, 10% 10%, 10%, mental health condition 30%. Do I have to pay back all of my severance pay? What is out there that I am not asking, that I should be asking?
    Can someone write to me like I am a two-year old so I can maybe, maybe understand?
    Summary. MEB: Unfitting is sleep apnea and legs. PEB: Unfitting is legs (10%). Sleep apnea removed at advice from counsel at Walter Reed who attended the PEB with me.
    VA rated me at 80% three weeks later upon discharge. Sleep apnea - 50%, legs 10%, 10% 10%, 10%, mental health condition 30%.
    Long time listener, first time caller. I will try to use the least amount of words possible to get right to it. Had PEB and received 10% for condition with my legs. Walter Reed legal advisor who represented me asked me to convince the PEB to remove severe obstructed sleep apnea from PEB, otherwise, I would have to payback the severance pay. IOWs, only unfitting condition at PEB is legs at 10%.
    I wanted to first thank you for all the information and guidance you provide. I would like to get in contact with you if possible regarding my condition. I have Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. I am currently using multiple topical for the Psoriasis and Humira for the Arthritis. I am to the point that I feel I might need to start the med-board and would greatly appreciate your help. I am in the DC area. Thanks!
    Mr parker, I am in need of serious counsel concerning my ipeb is there a way I can contact you for some advice like a pm? I really need to talk and was told you were the one to talk to.
    hey Mike, its Troy Balke here. I wonder if you could have my public forum statement removed from the rwtf.defense.gov website? i contacted them several times with no response. thank you
    Sir, I am AD USAF entering the MEB process, diagnosed with AS(3+ yrs), PTSD(6 mo), and mild sleep apnea(2yrs). I am concerned all my AS symptoms will not be documented and impairments from all conditions not fully understood. Do you have any advice to get me on the right track to ensure I receive an accurate rating? I would like to ensure I tell my side of this story accurately and with appropriate evidence.
