Every rating I received reads like this

"proposed DES service connected, Gulf War, Incurred"

Why would it say gulf war when I only served in OEF?

If anyone has deployed to Iraq or Afgan. since 1990, it will be a titled as Gulf War... It's no big deal, I had the same question on mine back in the day.

Except for my PTSD being combat related, nothing.

Even though my fibro, spinal conditions, ect. should be.

I obviously have similar conditions. I am a USAR Soldier with 36 years for pay and 11.5 actual active years. I have Fibro and Sleep Apnea and Irritable Bowel. My unit failed to do the profile for my conditions so the PEB refused the conditions that were not profiled. In the end I got 30% and retired. But I am unsure there will be any pay until I am 62. I think I will appeal again but am unsure.

Welcome to the PEB Forum! :)

Indeed, congratulations albeit never default acceptance to potential injustice; fight then continue to fight some more until receipt of a favorable determination supportive by medical documentation in my opinion.

Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer."

Best Wishes!
