    CRSC as of 30 July

    On 30 July President Trump signed the legion act, making us in a continual state of war since 7 Dec 1941. Does this mean we are now eligible for CRSC if we were injured in the line of duty?

    Hi Jason, It's been a long time. I just ran across a guy going TDRL for a Thyroid problem. People need to understand the thyroid is no reason for PEB action. I would like to right an article and post it here. Are you okay with that? I can send it to you if you prefer. Brian

    Misconduct Separations

    Wonder how many of those kicked out for substance abuse were combat soldiers? Its very common for the military to dump people for substance abuse rather than to admit the troop has a problem and pay the disability.

    Guard and CR

    If a person with their 20 year letter is put through the PDES and put out via Medical Retirement, would he be able to collect CRSC immediately, or would he have to wait until age 60 or 62?

    VA Rule Changes for ALS, TBI and Scars

    Got this from VBN and thought I'd pass it along here. I want to preface my remarks by stating that I have not been on the board as regularly as I had been in the past and am unaware what (if any) discussion has already been provided on these topics but based on Cruiser's response to my e-mail...

    Concurrent Receipt

    Folks, I spoke with Congressman Jim Marshall's (sponsor of the bill) office today. HR 333 Disabled Veterans Tax Termination Act is still alive in the new session, but is still stuck in the House Armed Service Committee. His office is asking for OUR help to get this bill out for a vote...

    PEB Tools Suggestions

    Hi Jason, Tools are great. I'd like to suggest putting up the 2008 VA rates since there's so little time left in the month. Also, some instructions on how to use the PEB calculator would be great. Brian

    New Army Psychiatric Guidance

    In reading through this, a few things stood out. 1. The Army is working very hard to make it difficult for a diagnosis of PTSD. 2. The Army is basing it's ratings on imparement compared to civilian work, vice compared to the ability to perform military duties. In my opinion, both are...

    Concurrent Receipt

    I have been asked a couple times to explain what concurrent receipt is and how it works. Rather than put it in various threads, I thought I'd put it all in one thread in the General forum for all to see. The purpose of concurrent receipt is to eliminate the dollar for dollar offset retirees...

    Chapter 61 Retirement and Concurrent Reciept

    I know there is a lot of confusion right now regarding Concurrent Receipt for Chapter 61 retirees. This confusion is caused by the fact there are several bills in the works on the Hill not to mention the Dole-Shalahla report and the VDBC report. So, here's the current bottom line. House...

    Important - A Must Read

    Folks, When we start talking about MEB/PEB about various injuries we seem to always overlook one huge thing and it is critical that it is attended to. When you receive an injury that is from some form of violence, you could very well develop some level of PTSD. Here's a link to information...

    Board of Corrections

    I've always wondered what advantage there would be for a retiree to get an increase in their DoD disability rating. Can you clear this up for me? I also don't understand why a person with 20 years in would rather go through MEB/PEB process and get Ch61 rather than simply retire on TIS...

    Severance vs Chapter 61 Retirement

    As a military person one of the most nerve wracking situations we come into is when we can no longer perform our duty as a result of injury or illness. At that point we are faced with going through the MEB/PEB process. While this process is nerve wracking due to the amount of time it takes and...

    I Can Tough it Out

    We in the military are a different breed than the average person. We are trained well and have a "can do" attitude. We'll go days on minimal sleep and rations, walk for miles and face the enemy without a complaint. The mission is what we live for. When we get injured or sick we tend...
