    Get a hold of old records

    Not a physical evaluation board question, sorry. My grandfather served in the Air Force during Vietnam and retired in the 70's I believe. He stated when he left he was awarded 20% for hearing by the DOD. The VA rated him at 0% service connected for hearing loss six years ago. He recently...

    Free College for 100% VA Vets

    I do not believe so. My understanding is they give us a monthly stipend based of whether she is full, half or quarter time to use to pay for the classes.

    Free College for 100% VA Vets

    Hello Vets, I was recently awarded a 100% VA rating and found some very good information. I used the GI Bill to receive my undergrad degree. I then used Voc Rehab to pay for a Master's Certificate that gave me 18 out of the 30 credits to receive my Master's. I thought I would have to pay myself...

    100% VA rating and free college

    I recently was awarded 100% VA rating. Talking with another vet was told at 100% total and permanent VA rating my spouse and kids could go to college for free. I did some research and found that Chapter 35 does talk about this but is not very clear. My kids are two and 5 months so college is...

    Medical Retirement Pay Calculation

    I saw a thread a couple months ago on how your retirement pay is calculated but now I cannot find it. I am 90% VA rated so I am sure I will not receive any pay from a medical retirement if I am granted one retroactively but still I am curious what the amount would be. I served 4 years and 2...

    Back pay for medical related expenses

    Thanks, this if unfortunate for my family. I have paid quite a bit in out of pocket and premiums, I was hoping if I am granted retro retirement that I could recoup my previous medical expenses. I am not going to worry to much right now seeing I have not been awarded retro medical retirement yet.

    Denied PDBR

    I guess I need to provide some additional information. I was medically discharged on 20100222 @ 20%. I have since been able to get my VA rating to 90% but felt I should have been medically retired because I met the requirements for a 40% rating as a Type 1 diabetic that required insulin...
