    Promotion upon medical discharge

    Unicorn, Not to be confrontational, but you personally have no reference to the (provable) direct relation to combat via instrumentation of war, from which my wounds, injuries and other condition(s) that precluded me from "researching all this" came. Do you honestly think it's normal for...

    CRSC and Rank consideration after PDRL and 100% T&P VA disability.

    I am curious how this may translate for me as a medically retired Navy Chief: Within a month of my eligibility for Senior Chief I was injured in Kabul and sent to NMCSD Balboa where I spent the next 4.5 years on MEDHOLD. My command however was based in Hawaii. I understand the reasoning behind...

    Promotion upon medical discharge

    I know this is time late to the discussion, but I just came across it and am curious how it may translate for me as a medically retired Navy Chief. Within a month of my eligibility for Senior Chief I was injured in Kabul and sent to NMCSD Balboa where I spent the next 4.5 years on MEDHOLD. My...

    Just received "Favorable(?)" PEB results after initial period of TDRL. Have some questions.

    Cont.... as I was saying, My VA % could eventually reduce forcing me to accept payment from DoD retirement. I do not know how to calculate that, but as an E7 with 21+ yrs of service I was being paid $950mo. until my DVA payment kicked in recently. My argument with Combat related is that I was...

    Just received "Favorable(?)" PEB results after initial period of TDRL. Have some questions.

    I am unsure about the higher compensation because I don't know how the LOS comes into play at this point? I cannot find verification as to whether my high 36 is from my total days of service or just the 11 yrs 7 mos shown on my PEB paperwork in box 6? I also have yet to find a mathmagician who...

    TDRL to PDRL Offer Lowers PTSD Rating NARSUM disagrees

    Due to the recent post of this it appears this is the most ideal place to pose/post my request for guidance. I have been on the Dept. of the Navy TDRL since Jan 2012 and rated at 70%. 1: 50% Major Depressive Disorder D-codes 9394-9411 1.1 Hx of PTSD (related Cat 2 diagnosis)...

    Navy/Marine TDRL Re-Eval Process

    The eval was compiled over the last few months and decided in an amazingly short period of time. I received their decision on 30 September, sent it to the TDRL Liaison by Oct 15th and had orders to do it all again by the last week of Oct. Pretty ignorant in my opinion. The VA came back with 100%...

    Blow off TDRL?

    Ranger, I am not "ignoring" any benefit, just facing a reality that CRSC is neither guaranteed nor promised to everyone regardless of how entitled we deem ourselves to it. Without the proper "paper trail", In my case, Buddy statements, NAVFLIRS and pinpoint of location be damned. Trust me bud, I...

    Blow off TDRL?

    Jason, Yes, by "Yet", I mean I am still in the CRSC request process. The hurdles in providing paperwork etc. have been painful (literally) to gather and present. Maronedp: I was found 100% by the VA so all of those items you listed are already accessible.

    Navy/Marine TDRL Re-Eval Process

    Pittpan2005, were you asked to have any "re-evaluations" due to your MTF or VA documentation not being "Sufficient"? Did you require more than one NARSUM (from different providers) to cover your conditions? In my case I provided complete records for conditions I was asked about holding nothing...

    Separated at 18 years 7 months, 24 days and not retirement eligible

    Maparker, Is it still your position that the Navy is not doing the TDRL exams in compliance with the DoDI 1332.38? If so, I just want to head into mine with that in the back of my mind.

    Navy/Marine TDRL Re-Eval Process

    This sounds very familiar to the IDES process I am going through now where they are actually letting me get my re-evaluation appointments done locally. Mine however were optioned to use a civilian doctor, DoD doctor, or VA doctor. Believing the system was intended to be "Integrated" disability...

    Blow off TDRL?

    Has anyone considered simply ignoring the TDRL process once found 50-100% by the VA? It appears the IDES system is not working as intended as the DoD does not want to accept medical paperwork or opinions from the VA. In my case I am not receiving CRSC (yet) or CRDP so the $ I currently receive...

    PRO n CONS of VA pay and Reteriment pay

    Now I am truly confused Mike. So you are saying that if the DoD (or DoN in my case) determines that my original unfitting conditions will be considered by them in my upcoming initial TDRL re-evaluation to be 30% or less I will receive a severance only(?), and if I am fortunate enough to be just...
