I have 21 years in the guard and 3 active. 20 year letter in hand. In april of 2011 at my yearly retention interview I was informed by my commander that I would not be retained. This did not set well with me as I had planned on doing 30. That afternoon on my way home from drill I was having chest pains. Went to emergency room and was admitted to hospital. After about a weeks stay in the hospital I was released. Diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy and less than 10% ejection fraction. An lod letter was done and in the meb/peb process now. In september of 2011 I had a pacemaker/defibrilator implanted. I am reasonably sure from reading this forum that the defibrilator will definately be a deal killer for future service and that I will be considered 100% disabled. As a "part timer" what can I expect in the way of retirement and or VA disability? Does the fact that I was on drill and an lod was initiated automatically make this service connected or is that something that the peb decides?
