Thank you! Welcome to the forum! There is a point of Contact for the Army named Mr. Al. The DDA is some acronym like Direct Decisional Authority, in your case the Secretary of the Army. The website showing results, "the reading room?AF Boards " page has been down for months. Best of luck!First I’d like to congratulate you on the good news! Now I’d like to complain that I’m still waiting on the Army to make a decision. My docket # is PD-2017-03742. I received an email in June that they had sent it to DDA for sign off. Anyone else experience this? Is there still a site showing dockets and their outcomes? Thanks and good luck to everyone else.
I found Mr. Al for the Army, his contact info in another thread is quoted below. I believe he is the point of contact at the Army. It is my understanding from reading others, it goes to him at some point when it is forwarded to the Army by the PDBR. Good Luck!!!!First I’d like to congratulate you on the good news!

So I got good news yesterday, I called Al from Army HRC 1-877-577-3065 and he had my file on his desk. He needed a copy of my original orders, and the member-4 copy of my DD-214... because he was processing my 30% retirement... I am trying to hold the celebrations until I have it in writing, but I am encouraged. Funny thing is he stated that they have 120 days to respond, and that they were getting it done early... I assume he is correct, but I thought it was 45 days to decide, plus 10 days to notify...
Welcome to the Forum! Ms. Ann Jones is the Navy POC for the PDBR. [email protected] is her email. She gets the packages once they leave the PDBR for the Navy and Marines. I would email her if you know the PDBR has forwarded it to the Navy. I never called her, so I do not know her number. Best of luck!!Do you have contact info at all for Marines? 3-10-2020 would be 120 days
Hello John,Good morning. Just wanted to update my timeline for those wondering. I am still waiting on DFAS. I spoke with them three weeks ago, and they said to call back this week. So, this week, I called back. They have all of the paper work they need (since February) to complete my audit and create my account. They sent it to a supervisor for escalation, not even sure what that means. They advised I call back in two weeks. So, I still wait. No worries, it takes the time it takes. I just wanted to offer a real timeline, as opposed to the 30 days stated by the paperwork I received from the Navy. Stay healthy and safe.
Thanks Ron! Hope you are safe and healthy!Hello John,
Although most of my former military peers who worked for DFAS have retired, I heard from one yesterday who said many of the employees are working from home.
Whether that affects how quickly certain documents are processed remains to be seen.
Good luck and thank you for your continuing assistance to other veterans.
