Retirement vs Separation ?

Rate this question



Years ago, the DoD discharged me at 10% based on their "findings"...

I understand that I've accepted VA (initially 40%, now 50%, and pending further claims) comp. instead of DoD retirement and instead took severance, however....They rated me wrong upon discharge utilizing only a minor injury for the rating as per the DoD disabled schedule as I was getting booted out the door in a quick hurry, and despite outsource for neuro involvement the year prior to my discharge...

Still awaiting the results of my current claims, but the ball is in my court on this one...

Can I get a Retired ID, base access etc. possibly somehow?

I am not an Attorney or VSO, any advice I provide is not to be construed as legal advice.

You're never out of the fight.

Im not sure if you are eligible for a retired ID or not.  How long did you work for them?  Did/do you get any retirement?  

My id for base was based on a letter now found on ebenefits, which entitles me to MWR benefits, including base access.  As far as disabled Vets, Im pretty sure you can only get an MWR id with a letter from VA stating you are 100 percent and entitled to MWR>
