    You're understanding is based on the fact that the services with the exception to the Coast Guard receive their VA rating at the same time they receive their DOD rating. In the Coast Guard, we have to go through the whole process once we get out. So, I'm not really able to use that DOD...

    Yeah, that calculator says i'll be making $130... I don't think that's right. That's all based on VA compensation, it looks like, and the coast guard doesn't receive VA ratings at discharge

    So, I received my findings and now awaiting discharge orders. My last question to this forum, When compensation pay is awarded, is it "High 3", or is it based on the pay at discharge. I've heard both now and can't seem to find it in the manual CIM_1850_2D

    Been trying to talk to him and, as of today, the system to check the status is down... Go figure. He told me during the first NARSUM 6-9 months before the determination. Now, they have no clue. Apparently, the tracker from what a different HS told me is that it is still being reviewed. So, Not...

    Well, I'm currently in a medical board for multiple injuries, mostly a fusion to my right wrist (dominant, and typing this isn't much fun for me right now). I'm on my second NARSUM, signed around 2-3 month's ago, and haven't even received an email stating that anyone has received my packet or...
