Question regarding hazardous duty

Served in Djibouti - received hazardous duty pay - I don't call it combat pay since nobody was shooting at us - however, we were combat patched and received the pay due to malaria danger, etc.. I have Neck problems (with LOD, MRIs, etc.), major depressive disorder, lumbar back (with LOD, MRIs), and a depressed immune system group of issues. The back and neck are from wearing armor during train-up and on duty.

As it appears I will be medically retired at 60% or more, then will this qualify me for CRSC?

Combat related depends on how you got injured. Just being injured while deployed is not enough. If the body armor caused the injuries I would think that is combat related.
