This is the rub, im at 19 years 3 months and tired of getting the green weenie in the ass. I just got my VA rating of 100 and my Army rating of 70%. I understand that i can request Continuation of Active Duty, to hit my 20.
The part I'm confused about is I also did Delayed Entry Program, which started 14 SEP 2002 which counts as inactive reserve time.
in DA PAM 635-40 Section 3-12 it states
Twenty years of service as computed under Title 10 United States Code section 1208 In accordance with 10 USC 1201 and 1204, a Soldier determined unfit for compensable disability is granted disability retirement if the Soldier has either 20 years of service as computed under 10 USC 1208 or a minimum disability rating of 30 percent. It is important that PEBLOs, PEB adjudicators, and transition centers understand the computation of this service, as it can mean the difference between a disability retirement and a disability separation with severance pay when the Soldier does not have the minimum 30 percent. In general, the computation is the sum of the Soldier’s active service, the Soldier’s equivalent years of service for the Soldier’s membership, and/or inactive duty training points. For regular retirement, this combination of service is called 10 USC 1405 service. Unlike regular retirement in which the 10 USC 1405 service is listed only after the Soldier obtains 20 years of active Federal service, equivalent years of service is counted for disability retirement in meeting the 20-year threshold. In summary, a minimum of 7,200 points of combined active duty, membership, and inactive duty training points results in eligibility for a disability retirement.
I have not been able to find or figure out exactly what this means. if this puts me over 20 years and i tired of this shiz, cant I accept the medboard findings instead of playing this stupid kick the can BS with a formal medboard hearing?
I talked with the Office of Soldiers Council, but both my PEBLO and the Lawyer did not have a definitive answer for me.
If anyone has experience with this or how i might go about it i would very much appreciate it.
