MF6 posted a question in Eligibility - Veterans Compensation Benefit ClaimsI separated from active duty service in the Air Force with in 2010 and had undiagnosed non-combat military connected PTSD with alcohol use in remission (According to my VA disability paperwork which puts me at 50% for ptsd.) This was granted the beginning of last year. I recently put in to have my discharge upgraded to honorable from general and have yet to hear back from them. (E-benefits say maybe I'll hear about it early February 2018.) There were a few selfmedicated incidents with alcohol that happened while I was active duty that resulted in going into a civilian rehabilitation facility, a perscription to an antidepressant, and a lot of suicidal ideation I recently admitted in my paperwork to the review board that I was afraid to admit to my command because they would do things like write someone up for a sunburn (destruction of government property), or purposefully keep spouses apart by writing one up for something they didn't do and keep them from going during their significant others' PCS (because someone else did it to them for five years and "they turned out fine"(There was no way to prove otherwise.)). I was recently reading about medical retirement from the military. It's a little confusing. I was wondering if there was a way to submit for reconsideration and medically retire from the military after separation?
Fellow Warriors, I was a reservist where i attended bootcamp and school (then transferred to reserves with an Honorable DD214) '89-'90, called to active duty for Desert Shield and deactivated with another honorable DD214 ('90/91) and entered active drilling status. During my 2 week active duty in 1993 i was in a HWMMV that rolled over and had subsequent back surgery/injuries. During monthly drills in 92/93 i was at sick call, with documentation, etc. in 94 i started missing drills and was discharged in 1995 with an admin separation OTH (for missing drills). My initial claim for this back injury was denied due to Character of Service (so service time from 91-95 was not honorable). I am due for an appeal next week, and want to know if i have a shot at getting some VA benefits for this even though my discharge was not Honorable even though the documented injury occurred on active duty training.
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knew how hard it would be to change the narrative on your discharge after 19 years?? I was told at that time that my discharge would be "Hardship due to pregnancy", so when my DD214 stated Due to pregnancy, I assumed it was the same thing. I just found out that it was not because I was denied a certificate of eligibility for a home loan because I did not meet the 24 mos. rule. Shyne-I
Just wanted to pop in and say that my DH finally got notification from Sallie Mae that his PLUS student loan has been discharged. I say finally because the other lenders were very quick to process his claim and he was reimbursed very quickly. Sallie Mae kept rejecting the claim, once because it was the "wrong" form (taken from the Dept of Education's website), once again because it was an "old" form (which they had mailed to DH), and another time because, they claimed, he had not submitted the form at all (we had Return Receipt proof). So they kind of put DH through the wringer over this, clearly unnecessary delay. But all is well that ends well, and DH and I are very grateful. I didn't intend to sound ungrateful at all. My intention was to let other folks who are dealing with Sallie Mae to just keep trying!! Good luck to everyone.
