From my experience, the Army no longer plays a role as judicator but mirrors the VA Schedule which is current MEB regulation. Hence, why MEB individuals receive their VA rating pre-retirement. If this was your referred condition I would appeal through the Military Board of Corrections is you have been discharged to argue for a Navy Retirement. If not discharged. However, if you have under 20 years AFS you can't collect VA unless you qualify for CRDP to offset. A 60% is a much more money if your a Chief than 60% VA.I was given 60% by the VA for 6817 but the Navy gave me 0% for 6817. I'm taking Coumadin for life. PDBR shot me down. 14 years in the Navy and no retirement.
