In need of urgent advice! Just found this forum. I just got my rating decision 100% and they added homebound as well. They're saying once I concur I'll have 2-4 weeks to clear. I don't feel like that's enough time to prepare for my ets travel to Arizona from Alaska. There's still a lot I need to do to prepare for that journey. One of which is get my license...yes I know I should've had it sooner. My current options are to try to get my army unfit for duty injuries added as combat related which will add about a month. Or try to get an injury added as unfit for duty which I believe is a formal board. My legal person said that can take 2-4months. Im just not sure what risk each option holds and positive that the outcome of doing either won't benefit me besides giving me time to prepare to travel back home with my spouse. Any advice? Am I playing with fire and should just out process in that 2-4 weeks?
I know it has been some time since you offered to share documents related to your COAD. However, if you still have any of them available, would you please email them to me at [email protected]? I'm especially interested in any information about the physician's letter/recommendation regarding fitness for duty (level of detail and specifics needed or generally given). Please feel free to redact any personal information that you do not wish to share. Thank you so much for your time!
