I'm getting ready to come off a 2.5 yr ADOS (title 32) tour, had a couple of health issues come up during this tour. I saw civilian physicians, turned in the records, and am on a permanent profile now. Do I also need an LOD packet done, or will my orders and medical documents be sufficient for VA whenever I decide to retire and submit a packet for evaluation/rating? I assume the purpose of the LOD is to justify payment for continuing treatment if I'm not on orders, which I don't really need, I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing now to make it easier later to deal with the VA... I appreciate any insight.
