    ORDERS JBLM

    I agree, PEBLOs are just another turd in the punch bowl. Most will try & give you as much good info as they can. If not, nothing you say or do to the PEBLO will make your paper work move faster. The big VA mechanism will grind & grind & spit out your paperwork when it is good & ready. The...

    applying for CRSC

    So oil fires wouldn't be CRSC by logic of instrument of war, but it is because it was unique to the war, and so are the burn pits because there are no limitations to what you can burn, & troops are forced to live near, & sometimes operate the pit. I have never seen a burn pit from my house...

    KMC/Europe Timeline

    Update, after getting my orders for 20 year, title 10 retirement, I then get an LOR for medical retirement, about 50 days short of my 20 year mark. I made a fuss, got a 4187 to my first O6 for an extension of the 90 day limit. Well my CDR & 1SG did some digging & sent some emails, & it ended...

    Signed my DA 199 now what?

    Should email because it is a record of communication, & a phone call isn't really. Email once week for updates.

    Confused on what to expect with VA and DOD benefits (LDES program)

    Over 30% with the DOD is very important. Because it will determine if you get severance pay or not. You don't want severance pay. If you are under 30%, you will get a paycheck based on your rank & time in service (that's taxed); & what ever you get from the compensation the VA gives you...

    Thanks for the info, the Army has pretty much the same thing.

    Confused on what to expect with VA and DOD benefits (LDES program)

    Seems a lot of rabbit holes, & he said she said. Frankly I don't know about the LDES, but if it were me, I would be reading a lot of the US codes & Regs, taking to a law dog, VA rep, WWP, & anyone else I could muster to find out. Good luck.

    Signed my DA 199 now what?

    Not sure about the approval authority, but the request would be in the form of what ever routing mechanisms your unit has, & the packet should include a (for the Army) a leave form (DA31)- LES & what ever else is required for submitting leave, the MOJ. Once you get your LOR, you have a window...

    Signed my DA 199 now what?

    The wording is what gets folks, you are "authorized" not entitled. Most CDRs will give what they can give, but it is better to have a memo of justification, & do all you can to try & have the CDR want to give you all the PTDY allowed. In the end you have to make it happen, no one is going to...

    CRSC "hazardous duty" question

    Tricky thing about flight status, is that there is documentation, & multiple studies that show a relationship between vibration dose (total flight time), & back conditions, as well as other conditions caused by whole body vibrations.

    In patient and confused

    The docs will most likely complete a treatment protocol, because if you are released & unstable, and something goes badly, the Military is in a very actionable position. Besides the fact you should be thinking about your quality of life. Treatment can give you the tools you need to deal with...

    So to update. I got an LOR yesterday with an out date in the beginning of June. I need to get to 24July to hit 20 years. I submitted a request to the first O6 in my chain for an expemption to policy to exceed the 90 days to take my accured leave for transition. The O6 is the approval...

    So I am retiring in Germany, & I put down job hunting, house hunting & moving house hold to a different part to f Germany, as well as the difficulty of migrating to Germany as a resident, & financial stability durning transitioning. This was before the federal hiring freeze & mandatory 180...

    Signed my DA 199 now what?

    You have to request PTDY, it is not an entitlement like leave is, & depends on your situation how much you may ask for. I ask for 30 days along with a memo of justification, & got it. I am Army, so each service might be different, I would do some homework on it.
