I have several issues with Mental Health (anxiety and depression), Back (DDD and Spondylosis including 2 budged discs l4-l5 and l5-s1) Problems, big toe joint fusions bi laterally in both feet (left has failed), and Migraines. along with a few other issues. so here's the story all about how...

Active Guard Reserve 1 May 2008 - 15 Oct 2018

NO LOD's Completed

8 Jan 2017 - AF Form 469 - Code 31 - Mobility restricted
3 Mar 2017 - AF Form 469 - Code 37 - MEB Processing? - IRILO
Early October 2017 - Commander's impact statement says retain can do duty position
about 17 Oct 2017 - Fit for Duty ALC Code C-2 per NGB/SG the non-deployable
16 Nov 2017 - new 469 Generated with non-deployable ALC code c-2
30 Nov 2017 - Referral EPR rated 2 closed out stating I'm incongruent to standards, and making mistakes and not adhering to AFI 36-2903 (so If I can do my job why are you telling me I'm not)
15 March 2018 - Notified by Commander I am non-selected to retain my AGR position with my orders ending 15 October 2018 - no reasoning given other than the LOR's and LOC's they have been slapping me with for being human after 2 big family losses (I was targeted) Total Active Service 15 Yrs 4 Months 7 Days.
13 Jun 18 - Due to changes in medical conditions and medications a new IRILO is completed. Fit for duty again from NGB/SG. updated to non-deployable ALC Code C-3
15 Oct 2018 - AGR tour ended

DSG

16 Oct 18 - Kept on as DSG (Drill status Guardsman) since I had to relocate for work and family i have to fly back round trip on my dime every 3 months to work in an environment with the perps...
Performed Quarterly UTA end of November-beginning of Dec 2018 - Very hard to focus and concentrate, anxiety attacks while in the office, and cant wait to ETS out in April with 17 Good Guard years because I obviously cannot handle it anymore.
28 Dec 2018 - Awarded 70% VA disability for my conditions. now pretty much I will now not get paid at all for attending these quarterly Drills.... at least it's only until April right?
End Of Feb - Beginning of March 2019 - supposed to be my last UTA. during my out-processing from the wing command chief and on down no one would approve me ETSing out. Promises made for cross training to get me out of the toxic environment, so DA Me Re-enlisted for 1 more year.
May 2019 - MRI of my spine and sleep study proving the presence of sleep apnea and a need for a CPAP has now increased my VA rating to 90%
May-June Quarterly UTA 2019 - Medical wants updated paperwork to do annual resubmission of the RILO. VA is very hesitant, and takes forever to get me to the right specialists to get the records the Medical group wants. Finally accomplished in August 2019 (while I'm going through some severe personal issues that makes matters worse)
21 Aug 2019 - Received a Statement of selection letter (non-duty DES) for rights to separate or be referred to the DES for fitness determination only..(WTF this all happened while I was on AGR status!!!)
22 Aug 2019 - new AF 469 accomplished Code 37 MR and FR
27 Aug 2019 - Received new impact statement to review - This one states do not retain.... yay!.... wait a min what is this? Section V of the AF 1185 states I was not in a military status when my conditions were Identified or originated, and that I had the conditions prior to me joining the ANG????? um no... this all started happening in 2015, and the last impact statement stated I was on orders so my comments below:

Note: Block V No. 1 Should be Yes and AGR orders 1 May 2008 - 15 October 2018 resulting in non-retain on AGR due to limited mobility status due to profile. Block V No. 2 Should be YES. Block V No. 3 Should be a No the member was diagnosed with original foot conditions (resulting in surgeries), back conditions, and Mental health conditions while on AGR orders (1 May 2008-15 October 2018), and while enlisted with the Fresno ANG from April 25 2008 to current. Please see Previous IRILO completed June 2018, and medical records. Currently 90% Service connected disabled (for Mental health and physical disability) and receiving VA benefits after AGR tour removal. AFSC is 6F071.

As of right now I have not been provided any of the Narsums for medical or mental health... so I'm blind in that matter.

I hope NGB reviews everything! or I'll be pretty screwed. I already provided those pieces to the Office of the Airman's Counsel, and my Congressman who is already on the case. IG is useless at my unit...

You should already be typing your congressional inquiry because NGB is guaranteed to screw you on this. Keep your head up, but start bringing in other people on this right meow. Do an IG complaint if you have to.

Good luck!

Anyone hear of something called a prior service MEB processing? first I have 1 package going to NGB, and now I have another package going this way.... this is weird since my conditions were identified while I was AGR Active Duty, and they have worsened since I was removed from the job... or pretty Much Fat chance and I'm just getting smoke...

I haven't seen a prior service MEB anywhere in AFI. I would ask them what AFI they are using to build this package.

My guess is it is a standard MEB. What LOD are they using? The only "prior service" thing I can think of is the Existed Prior to Service check box they can use when developing your LOD.

We have a situation with the Guard that ought to be an issue for Veterans Service Organizations. The use of the guard and the reserve have substantially changed in the last 30 years, but policies have not kept up.

How was you informed that you was found unfit by PEB? Also how do you find out when the Va received the package
I wasn't informed actually. I had to call the VA in Providence (401) 223-3700 to see if they had my package. Once they confirmed they received my package, I knew that I was found unfit. The IPEB won't send your case to the VA if your are found fit for duty.

Not all cases but most likely yours. Be advised, that number is not a typical VA number with prompts and waiting. It is a no kidding direct line to some department in the D-RAS section. The same 3 or 4 people always answer and sometimes just say "hello" instead of "thanks for calling the VA". Weird, but very effective for finding out what is going on.

thank you
Your PEBLO should also be able to tell you if your package was sent to the VA. The system they use tracks what department is currently reviewing your case. The PEBLO won't usually tell you that you were found unfit because it normally starts a line of questioning they don't have answers to until the VA is done with their part.

I'm freaking out here. I just had a call from my civilian boss yesterday and I have no clue what is going on. If I lose my civilian job is there anything I can apply for? I know unemployment but anything through the VA? This might have something to do with my service connected disabilities (anxiety and depression doesn't help productivity).

There is a VA Pension program (not compensation) but there are certain restrictions.

A VA fact sheet pertaining to pensions is at THIS LINK <----

It might not be of help to you due to:

"The VA Pension is a needs-based benefit program for wartime Veterans, who are age 65 or older or have a permanent and total non-service connected disability, and who have limited income and net worth. Veterans who are more seriously disabled may qualify for pension at the increased housebound or aid and attendance rates."
