I recieved my ratings back at 100% DOD and 100% VA, I am active duty and have 20 years. If I am on TDRL instead of regular retirement does that mean I wont get CRDP until I get out of the TDRL for regular length of servive retirement?
I was diagnosed in 2013 with stage zero, type 3 bladder cancer. I had a reoccurrence in late 2017. I’m a Vietnam-era sailor who didn’t deploy to Vietnam. However, as a Gunner’s Mate, I was exposed to a lot of solvents that have been linked to cancer. Ditto for a variety of contaminants (asbesto, etc.) while in drydock during a refit. VA says my cancer is not service related. Anyone run into this before?
