    Deploy or out

    But they are not required to be worldwide deployable. I was a company cdr of a recruiting company, around 1/3 of my company was on permanent profile most due to combat injuries and then got detailed recruiting and stayed there and converted from 11b or other combat arms mos to 79R because they...

    Can I be promoted if I am medically retiring?

    Ocean, Since you are out, you’ll have to file with the BCMR. If they do promote you, it will not really benefit you monetarily, it will simply give you the additional rank on retired ID card and possibly an amended dd215. I was retired at MAJ, but never got real promotion orders, just my...

    Deploy or out

    Don’t forget Army recruiter 79R MOS.... these are all non deploying slots where an injured Soldier could do the job. Thousands of slots.

    SSDI Reevaluation

    From what I’ve read on various forums, around 95% are continued on SSDI after a CDR. Checking the wrong blocks could lead to a more in depth review and denial. Check all the right blocks and you’ll likely be one of the 95%. But don’t just take my word for it, do some research...

    Can I be promoted if I am medically retiring?

    Let us know what happens! If they say no, get your Jag involved and give them a copy of title 10 USC 1372.

    Ads on the site and support for the PEBFORUM

    This forum is a godsend! It certainly helped me in so many ways, from understanding IDES in general, VASRD, all of the different appeals (I literally did appeal at EVERY level), to transitioning issues, SSDI, VA care after the service, just so many levels! This forum is a one stop shop.

    PCM refuses to initite MEB

    I would go the div surgeon route first. Maybe if they and the Otho are saying the same things to the PCM then the PCM will change course.

    Help to stop drinking

    Anyone who has successfully kicked the alcohol habit please tell me how you did it. I’ve been drinking 2-4 fifths of whiskey a week for about 4 years now. I need to stop but can’t seem to.

    Deploy or out

    I find this policy sad! When they break down the numbers, (take out those such as pregnancies or showing non deployable simply due to being red or amber on dental) the non deployable due to injury is 5% of the forces. There is absolutely no reason they can’t find jobs for injured service members...

    My Turn For "Guess the PTS Ratings"

    ChaplainCharlie is correct! His info comes straight from the VASRD mental health section. I was rated 70% mental health via the same criteria and many others on this site have been rated by the same scale. If however; someone ends up having an overall rating based on 4.a of the DBQ but has...

    Can I be promoted if I am medically retiring?

    Im not familiar with the code you mentioned but if your ERB reverts back to a (P) status, then you should be able to take that and a copy of title 10, 1372 to the retirement services people once you get to the point of TRANSPOC processing, this will happen when the PEB is complete and PDA...

    Does anyone go from TDRL to Active?

    Military and VA docs certainly do have a bias such as you describe. Like everyone has said, RTD is extremely rare. Once you’ve been identified and put in for meb, the military simply doesn’t want you around anymore. And I completely agree with Jason, he is 100% correct!!! By downplaying any...

    Promotion upon medical discharge

    I was ROTC in Nebraska and out processed the Army through Ft Riley. Did the person emailing you work for TRANSPOC or retirement services office? These are the people who will begin the process after you sign your 199, the PEBLO will release you to them. They should be familiar with this, if...

    Promotion upon medical discharge

    My retirement orders and retired ID card and dd-214 say Major. I sent a copy of the promotion list with my name on it to transpoc and they didn't do promotion orders,just retirement orders at Major. My date of rank was my last day of active duty.

    Can I be promoted if I am medically retiring?

    All I can tell you is that title ten is code 1372 is on your side. I was retired at the next higher grade under title 10, 1372: Unless entitled to a higher retired grade under some other provision of law, any member of an armed force who is retired for physical disability under section 1201 or...
