Here is my timeline for Navy.

Suggestions:
Stay on top of your PEBLO to make sure you are being looked after.

Get Organized from the beginning.

Keep and ask for any medical records for all appointments.

File Travel Vouchers ASAP.

Make sure you receive Orders for your TDRL exams. (I'm awaiting a travel voucher, filed on 2/25/14, that I never received orders for. I will update when or if I receive reimbursement.) If you don't go, you stand the possibility of losing your retirement benefits until exam is rescheduled and retirement is reinstated.

Start a Timeline and Post it.
