    @Jason Perry Understand on everything. Just curious if you recommend going through a private attorney then? If so, how do they usually charge?

    Results from 1st TDRL Evaluation...

It was suggested he file a CMEO complaint, but the IG also seems like a good plan. There's...

    First and foremost this is not for myself but rather for a junior sailor whom is currently on LIMDU for hemophilia and unspecified mental health issues. He's done 12+ years of active duty and only recently has the hemophilia come to light. He has a very unique and baffling case where the...
