    So if you get a severance check and it's combat related you still get your VA check without having to pay back the sev check?

    New Air Force Asthma MEB (flyer)

    I knew a guy that got out in April 2011. He faked asthma, smoked before he joined and continued to smoke after, never had an attack while at work, never used an inhaler or took any medications, but somehow he was medically retired at 70%.

    IPEB offered 40% PR for acute DVT's, thinking of going to the FPEB. Thoughts?
