Jason Perry submitted a new resource:

DOD Retention Policy for Non-Deployable Service Members - The recent guidance from the DoD on retention policy for Non-Deployable Service Members

This is the guidance from the DoD on Retainability of Non-Deployable Service Members.

While this is interim guidance, it potentially impacts all members with disabilities that prevent deployment. (Note that many profiles or referral to the IDES/PEB include a limitation on deployment).

This may be a very important regulation that impacts those servicemembers with conditions that fail retention standards.

Honorable Mr. Perry, "seems" we accidentally were duealing banjo's here as posted, the below, about same time you posted on this very "HOT" Topic ("Tabasco")- so thought just place here for clarity and simplification as well as kind of "in" your highly "specialized" and "wealth" of KNOWLEDGE ON lane:

Thanks Honorable Mr. Perry...... hopefully you and/or other "super" Moderator's" comment....??????

PS: I personally, have alway's believed "laws"/ "regulations" should be written such that the "common" man can in fact understand them- i.e. the "Napolean's" Private Standard, and kind of like US Military- Purpose and Intent- Intent being "most" important...... as well as "enforceable," for all, just not "selective".....

Looking forward to any response on this Topic......

Honorable Mr. Perry, would you be willing to explain what you perhaps foresee as issues with:

"Third, this may impact adjudication of conditions for the folks on the TDRL?"

I ask for several reason's, 1) While I was on TDRL, I was told by TDRL examiner at Ft. Benning, those placed on TDRL MH Conditions are in fact almost "never" returned to active duty!" If, this is in fact case, which based on your experience as JAG Formal PEB Chief in TX would "assume" you would know-perhaps, then why are they placed on TDRL at all to begin with?"

2) While on TDRL, and after, the US DVA MH Provider treating me, (who died of brain tumor), told me he had "patients" on TDRL in local Gulf Coast VA System for over the "five" year limit, and were in fact so bad off could not "take" care of themselves and had "funds" cut off, as well as significantly "low" VA ratings, that further contributed to their "issues," as well as placing sigificant burden "famly" etc....! So my question here would be, if case number one, hardly any members on TDRL MH reason's returned "duty,"- is "true" and if still on TDRL after 5-year limit, what is the point of TDRL for MH Conditions, anyway, and what impact this "Directive" will in fact on anyone in above situation still possibly on TDRL past 5-year limit?

3) Would you make any recommendations' as what should be done/changed/modified- in light of this "Directive," with the whole convoluted and overly complex, "TDRL" system??????

4) Perhaps, deyond your purvue, but US State Department Officals' and Merchant Mariners, can utilize the US DVA System, are they in fact held to same "rating" and compensation "standards" as US Armed Services Members'????? If so are they "considered" "non-deplorable," etc...within-in their own "system's" like etc... US Armed Service Members affected by this "Directive"...?????

Thank you Honorable Mr. Perry, and belive this best website out there for Veterans', etc.. issues......"being no "expert" by any means in these matters, but a simple "yokel," myself, which as per "Merriam-Webster" word of day 20- FEB 2018, "365 New Words-A-Year Page-A-Day Calendar 2018- Calendar – Day to Day Calendar, August 3, 2017" by Merriam-Webster (Author) (at https://www.amazon.com/Words-Year-P...8424&sr=8-2&keywords=365+words+a+day+calendar), is "a naive or gullible inhabitant of a rural area or small town...!"

Honorable, Mr. Perry, was wondering about the Department of State folks, who can utilize US DVA- in addition whole lot of things/ "fringe" benefits, and TDRL, etc... as was in a US DVA PTSD Program up near Carlisle Barracks PA, and there was US Veteran- not only in PTSD Program but in the "Drug-Alcohol Track," as well, because of being on "Administrative Leave" from supposedly, US Department of State Security Detachment, for "drug-abuse?"

Hope clarifies my "mere" curiosity????? Also, am aware, you have represented VET's with the US DVA, as well, and perhaps might have represented some US Dept. of State Personnel or US Merchant Seamen as well and hence may be "knowledgeable" on this topic?

Just a quick comment on US DVA- just found out today that the US DVA in fact does not, test medications for tampering etc... which is odd considering how many "open" packaged have recieved via Us Postal Service (USPS)- alone. One would simply think, this would be logical for US DVA to do in order protect it's veterans as well as itself-legally- humph???? IAW Us Code Title 16, Section 1702, it supposedly is "up five years imprisonment or $2000-dollar fine or both for any person tampering with or obstructing the delivery of"....mail! Guess it truly is "Mission Darkness" (see at https://www.amazon.com/Mission-Dark...d=1519317092&sr=8-7&keywords=mission+darkness ) when dealing with the US DVA, and one must execute a whole lot of "Pink Panther," [sleuthing] to find out a lot of things- see: "Pink Panther Theme Song" courtesy YouTube at-

Finally, as I was "guest" of both the "Federal/ State" Government by and large courtsey US DVA Gulf Coast VA System/ VISN-16, know first hand "challenges" those finally "winning" their limited "freedom" in fact face!

And for those with "great" artistic ability- coming out of this awesome system- (Painting, Sketching, Leather Worlk, Native American Bead Work, Jewlery, etc...) should check out at YouTube.com the following on former Africa American Mayor NIX "The Utopian Fairhope" in-conjunction the "Annual Fairhope Arts & Craft's Festival":

Given, Fairhope-Daphne-Spanish Fort, as previously stated is per "chapati-income" one of the "wealthiest" areas in Alabama, might be good opportunity to pick up a sponsor or two?

Hope This helps Darby009....as well as 'numerous other's???????:cool::);):confused: (Local paper the other day had at top-Airing a Documentary of Former Fairhope Mayor NIX, but could not find it...perhaps other's, if so inclined can.... "Mobile Press Register" whom as local lore has it owner's reside in Fairhope AL....)
