    yeah, DTAP is done. If your pressumed to be over 20% the VA automatically enrolls you into a Voc Rehap APPT. So I will be using that for school. SSDI has already been applied for just waiting forever for an answer back. I'm happy for the retirement, more ready to just move on to my own life...

    Well, I've now been waiting 3 weeks for a set of retirment orders. I have been told 15-21 days, but so far nothing. Whats the average most navy sailors are waiting out there. I assume its longer due to them being retirement rather than seperation. Also what is the difference between regular...
