It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. I suspect this will be a lot of noise over nothing/very little. Especially since people know your rating can go *down* instead of going up. Be interesting to see how many people take them up on this.
 
I just recieved a letter from the Navy regarding this. I am still not sure if will go forward with it. I was boarded with only one condition and awarded 20% and medically discharged. However, I was awarded by the VA of 30% for anxiety condition but this were not on IDES refferal. Does this mean that the Navy can actually rate my anxiety condition as addition to my original IDES which can unffiting and could get a much higher DOD rating and retired vs separation?

Pls enlighten me and some advice. Thank you so much.

For many people the big benefit is TriCare. It is a reasonable priced insurance, with low out of pocket cost and deductibles.
 
I'm a little confused when the Navy and Marines will abide by the Wormuth v. Sissel decision to determine the outcome of selected cases while the Army remains silent. What about Navy and Marines who went through the PEB process from 2018 to present? What is the Army doing? Is the Sissel decision a joint decision? It is possible for Navy and Marines with severance pay to achieve a higher DoD rating than current Chapter 61 retirees? I don't see the logic. Can the legal experts please provide your thoughts because I am really confused how all of the military services will proceed and what is the best strategy for service members who want all ratings considered that contribute to unfitness.
 
Just an update: I reach out to National Veterans Legal Services Program.

"Thank you for reaching out to NVLSP about your potential claim under the Torres v. Del Toro class action litigation relating to the Navy and Marine Corps’ use of the Properly Referred Policy. Due to limited capacity, NVLSP is currently not offering representation at the Torres Class Action Review Board (CARB) for individual class members.

At this time, NVLSP recommends that you reach out immediately to Navy DES counsel at [email protected] or (202) 875-1198. Navy DES counsel will be able to review your case file and help you determine whether to appeal.
