12 months until terminal leave. I need to find out if I can carry more than sixty days of leave across fiscal year once I drop retirement papers. If not, it’ll be 13 months until terminal.

Nice. Get a physical copy of your complete medical file. Also download a copy of your iPerms for yourself. And/or print a copy of everything there too.

Also, FILE YOUR VA CLAIM. You can do it before you refrad. There are lot's of organizations that will do 90% of the work for you, for free (they get grant money to do it). Here's one: https://ssv.org/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI...ASAAEgLWffD_BwE

Is your service award being handled? Make sure that someone is on it.

Hekk, your county Vet office will submit your VA claim as well (iirc, you're in socal with me). Usually though they're booked months in advance, so maybe set that up. Don't be like me and wait 18 years to file.

Yeah I need to start getting all of my poo poo together. Right after the new year I plan on starting all my paperwork to setup my TAPs class and final physical. I will look at filing the VA claim in advance. This is all so foreign that I have no idea what I am doing.

Don't stress it, the office will file an initial claim which stops the clock on when you start getting paid. They'll probably do a more detailed follow on appointment where they create your package. Let them do the work for you. Also, have them complete your DMV form once you have your 214 so you can get vet on your DL for that sweet Lowe's discount.

E: Make sure in your final physical you document every single minor thing going on with your body. I didn't mention my knees and didn't get rated for it. Make a copy of all medical and dental records too.

Once you get a rating, then your kids get tuition waived at all CA public colleges through PhD too.

Also, I have no idea what I'm doing in this thread, I clicked on accident.

Not to be an rear end, but yes you can.

I was in the same position and got denied. You can submit a statement (explaining how you hurt your knees in the service), along with a civilian doctors assessment (you knees are hosed up and it didn't just happen overnight), and it counts as evidence.

I had a Marine buddy break his nose diving into a ditch in Iraq and because it was the invasion he didn't get it looked at/fixed so it just healed broken. He got out and was denied a rating (for breathing/sleeping problems) because of no evidence. He got written statements from a couple of guys who were with him when it happened and got a rating.

My dumb jarhead story is the time the monitor told me I should put in a humanitarian transfer request so he could station me somewhere that needed my MOS/rank but didn’t have any billets open at the moment, and then when the request was denied he sent me to 29 Palms instead which didn’t need my MOS/rank and then refused to answer phone calls from any 29 Palms phone number until he PCSd

One time at the MCX some dork yelled at me for wearing sandals, I told him to gently caress off, he called me a f*g. Then he hosed off. That’s my Marine story.

On oki we were living in the condemned barracks that had community bathrooms (they’re really called bathrooms, not heads) and I was taking a poo poo when I heard one dude in the shower tell another dude in the shower “nice dick”

The end.

I didn't know about MCX dress codes when on a Marine base and got a politely stern and frustrated E-7 trying to school my clueless Army rear end on how knee-length board shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals on the way to the pool were 1,000% unacceptable. Still got my gatorade and sun block successfully.

We had a sgtmaj that liked to cruise the PX on Foster on his weekends looking for jarheads to yell at for wearing untucked shirts and poo poo. Miserable rear end in a top hat.

A bunch of my SNCOs on Oki were pastors in a local church, but they all hosed off over Christmas and the only kind gesture a bunch of teenagers away from their families got was a 2nd LT that made a bunch of cookies and left them outside everyone's doors in the barracks in paper bags.

I started to write out a uniform regs post but it hurts me too much to continue. I will just say that for a long period of time the uniform regs prohibited athletic shorts anywhere except physical training. They also removed the "no flip flops even if they aren't shower shoes" thing that even though wasn't part of the uniform regulations, was included in most base orders.

I fondly remember one of the corpsman staying back during a deployment, then getting caught robbing the houses of others in his unit while they were deployed and the families back in their home states for a few months.

Then there was the junior enlisted that got kidnapped in base housing by his "party pals" who then drained his bank account over time while he was their captive.

Be. Best.

One time my SNCO told me to write a page 11 for a black kid wearing a Tupac shirt. I asked if I was to write up a white dude wearing a Travis Tritt shirt and got yelled at, then my own page 11.

I remember Mattis giving us his speech before the invasion which was basically “ Look left, look right, one in three of you will be dead or wounded in the next 72 hours. Make peace with that now and this’ll be a lot more fun. Now let’s go kill the enemy.”

Was actually able to find my unit patches for my ALR vest. I got nostalgic, and then remembered my ex-wife stole and pawned all my old unit stuff. loving sucks but I'm gonna go with "at least I was able to come back from over there" with the stuff.

Oh well, my appointments with my head shrinker are set up for when I get back from work travel, so that's good
