I will be Medically retired from the Air Force at the end of August with 70% PTSD due to deployment to Afghanistan. I also have 20 years active duty service. I am not sure if CRSC or CRDP would be better.
Ron I have a question. I have 20 years active duty service and am rated at 80% DOD / 100% VA. Will my DOD retirement be limited by my longevity? I know for the DOD disability retirement technically I should get 75% but with CRDP will I actually get that? I don't think so. I have inquired with my...

Sleep apnea 50%
Right Knee 10%
Left Knee 10%
Right Ankle 10%
Left Ankle 10%

I was inpatient at a few civilian facilities not through the VA.
DOD TDRL 80%. TDRL due to PTSD apparently is mandated to ensure stability.
