    How long does it take to get a new revised DD214?

    4 days ago I got the letter from the BCNR stating that they changed my re4 code to an re3g. Unfortunately, the recruiter doesn’t care or want the letter. He wants my new dd214 showing that it got changed. How long does it take to get that new dd214? The decision was officially made on May 1st.

    BCNR update

    So after 14.5 months as of today I still haven’t heard anything back from the BCNR. I started this process on 02/12/2019. This virus has also slowed down everything over there. I still don’t have a number or a way to contact them. Pretty much any phone number I do come across no one answers or...

    14 months and counting with the BCNR......

    So it’s been 14 months now and I’m getting fed up with this. I feel like this gonna be one of those over 18 month cases. Especially with this virus outbreak happening. They still won’t give me an update on my case. I just don’t know what to do anymore.

    I finally got my congressional inquiry sent to the BCNR.

    So after a delay due to this coronavirus I got my congressional sent to find out where my case is. I don’t get why I just can’t get a straight forward answer to my emails but that’s how this clock ticks. Why have an email and a phone number if you’re not gonna respond to it?

    Has the BCNR gone back to work yet? Or are they doing everything remotely from home?

    So I was wondering if the BCNR has gone back to work yet? Or if they’re still processing and making decisions from home?

    Appeal of ratings

    I was rated at 70% VA and 0% DOD. I have a genetic condition that the VA rated since it may have been “aggregated” by my service. The DOD found the opposite, saying that it was the normal progression of the disease. My attorney recommended an appeal because it “couldn’t hurt”. Today I found that...

    Is it possible to sue or hold a military doctor if you prove that they misdiagnosed you?

    Hello, I’m curious about something that’s been rattling in the back of my mind for a while now. If I prove through the BCNR that the adjustment disorder I was diagnosed with in the Navy was wrong, along with getting an RE4 code for it. Can I sue or hold the doctor who did it responsible?

    Has coronavirus affected the BCNR process?

    I was wondering if anyone knows how this virus has affected peoples cases and the BCNR processing and making decisions? Are they taking a vacation and not going to work because of it?

    Email from the BCNR. Confirming they got my advisory opinion rebuttal. What’s next?

    So I got a email today from the BCNR. The email stated they got my rebuttal and the put my paperwork back in the que for further processing.

    I am on the TDRL. I have exhausted all appeals to be transferred to PDRL. It has been 3 months since the decision. I haven't heard anything from personnel or gotten orders to be separated. Any idea what might be going on? I need to get something before I can appeal to the Board of Corrections.

    Increased VA disability rating and a petition for transfer to PDRL

    I was separated from active duty in 1967 following an TBI. My rating was 10%. Over the years, my service-connected condition has worsened, resulting in an increased rating from the VA of 43%. My VSO has appealed this rating. I petitioned the Navy Personnel’s Assistant for BCNR Matters to...

    Screwed up, Where to go from here?

    During my IDES process, I was horribly misinformed. I didn't do my research and believed everything my PEBLO told me. This was no one's fault but my own. But as I transitioned out, with severance at 10DOD/80VA, I found this forum and am stunned by how much I could have fought to change the...

    Board for Correction of Naval Records (BCNR)

    If requesting for correction to unfitting DOD conditions %, increased by the VA rating increases, recent post discharge, BCNR seems appropriate. However, are there any risks associated with asking them to reconsider your DOD %? Such as take conditions away, revert from PDRL to TDRL, etc...
