August 2014: return from overseas with excruciating leg pain. Get a misdiagnosis from medical as it wasn't my PCM of shin splints.
September 2014: Get to see my PCM, who is fantastic, correctly diagnosis stress fractures of both Tibia's as well as severe Vitamin defincincey.
Given new meds as well as crutches.
December 2015: Ortho says crutches aren't helping.
June 2015: Medical Chiefs determine I'm not getting better and start the process of Submitting for a med board. Paperwork takes months to get signed off by the various sections (CO, CoS, Medical etc)
November 2015: Go to all my VA exams and C&P exam.
12 February 2016: my package is officially accepted by the PEB.
18 April 2016: determined unfit from the PEB. Package goes to the VA.
27 May 2016: VA send package and ratings back to PEB
19 July 2016: PEBLO calls me and says the board did not give me DoD ratings as my injuries "weren't proximate with military service."
DID NOT RECEIVE DOD RATINGS. VA RATINGS 80%
(SECNAVIST 1850.4E, 2020 Disability Benefits clearly states they used the wrong sentence/references regarding my case)
22 July 2016: Officially send the Formal PEB request back.
27 July 2016: Formal PEB request accepted by the board. Am told 3-5 weeks before I get the date and my JAG lawyer assigned.
19 Oct 2016: Finally notified by Jag Lawyer who says " absolutely shouldn't have been processed as a "not physically qualified" reservist. You should have been processed as an "unfit" active duty Marine, and entitled to benefits."
20 Oct 2016: Lawyer sends me Formal board letter dated AUGUST 12th for a board date NOVEMBER 8th. NO ONE ELSE EVER NOTIFIED ME.
24 Oct 2016: Finally receive my Formal Board package after emailing PEBLO saying I never got anything. Board is set for 8 Nov.
31 Oct 2016: I finally receive my corrected findings. My Lawyer is amazing and got the PEB to see their administrative mistake. I fully accepted and sent my EOO to the PEBLO. Severance 0% unfitting condition/VA 80%
14 Nov 2016: My EAS/ECC posts to MCTFS, 30 Jan 2017.
16 Nov 2016: PTAD gets approved. Last day is Nov 22nd
