National Guard & Technician


Searching for someone who has gone through my similar situation.

I am 100% disabled through the VA. I work for the National Guard full time as a Technician. I know my time is borrowed.

What do I supposed to do now?

That depends on what you CAN do. If for some reason you are found unfit for your job, you could be placed in another job with requirements that meet your level of ability. If not, you can push for disability retirement. Are you FERS?

I am with the New retirement systems. I think it is FERS or CTRS or something like that. I am unsure.

My son is going through this process right now. He was injured in Iraq 2 1/2 years ago. He was medavaced to Landsthul (Germany) for 5 weeks, then they sent him home. He is also in the reserves. Is what happened in his case is the VA awarded him 90%. The Reserves are using this to do a medical board on him because he is not able to continue military service.

If you are a technician whose military position is tied to your civilian position, disqualification from the military will automatically disqualify you from the reserve side of your position. I was in the unit program, an IMA, a guardsman and an AGR as well as an Air Tech. That said, they would have to find you another civilian position that would suit your needs. If they can't do this they would have to medically retire you on both sides (mil and civ).

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
