, Just received an award of 0% service connected -relate
,Just received an award of 0% service connected -related pleural disease. I'm 68 years old, found out that I have prior asbestos exposure last summer (2014). I join the Navy in 1963 a week after turning 17 years old and served years, I was in the engine room most of those 22 years and work with (lagging) asbestos materials when needed. Now 50 years later I had a chest X-ray which sent up a flag and my family doctor ordered a CT Thorax wo Con, which showed prior asbestos exposure. My C&P exams results of the PFT's was normal age. Since I was awarded a 0% disability. Could I use the disease approach to up the award percentage?Thanks,Jerry
Hi my friend is in the navy. He's been in for 4 and a half
Hi my friend is in the navy. He's been in for 4 and a half years, just re enlisted last year so three more to go. He voluntarily admitted himself to the navy rehab center a couple years ago, due to many issues(suicidal thoughts, anxiety, depression excessive alcohol use : not caused by military) During this time, because he was seeking help, many things came up from his past (before he joined navy) that just slipped out, such as drug use and a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder with prescribed meds by doctor. These things are now in his navy medical record. He did not tell the navy about his anxiety or meds prescribed. He did receive a waiver for disclosing his marijuana use but during time at rehab he told them he used marijuana more often than what was said before and he used Xanax (prescribed). Although medical officers have seen his record, his commands never have. The command was notified of the suicidal thoughts, depression and alcohol use, and that was all dealt with at the time. The commands have never looked in depth to see the obvious fraud enlistment. He is unsure if he was cleared or waived while confessing these things to the medical officers while in the psych ward just before he went to rehab. Recently his symptoms of depression and anxiety have returned (although not suicidal and not drinking). He loves the navy but is unsure how to deal with this. He's never been in trouble. He wants to know (since this depression is a reoccurring issue obviously) what discharge to expect should they choose to kick him out. Thank you sir.

My son wants to join the Navy. He has a pending misdemeanor
My son wants to join the Navy. He has a pending misdemeanor case for minor domestic violence - his first offense ever. He's been offered a plea deal and can have the misdemeanor removed from his record after 2.5 years. He may fight the charges, which is what the attorney recommends, but we wanted to weigh the options both directions. If he pleads guilty and then has the record expunged from his record down the line will he be precluded from joining the Navy? His sole objective is to get into the Navy.
I was raped as kid and had serious PTSD and never told anyone
I was raped as kid and had serious PTSD and never told anyone and at 18 years old I got a Medical Marijuana Card to help my insomnia and anxiety. I had it for one year but didnt want that so I went to counseling and talked it over and got the man convicted. I scored in the top 5% for ASVAB and would like to join the Navy. I no longer use it and dont need it at all. I dont have a medical marijuana card and would like to know if this would restrict me from joining the military?
Good Morning,I joined the Virginia National Guard OctoberView more military law questions
Good Morning, I joined the Virginia National Guard October 8th 2013. I processed through MEPS and took my oath. At the time, the plan was to participate in the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) through my university ROTC. Shortly after, circumstances changed and I have decided not to continue with college at this time. That being the case, I began participation in the Recruit Sustainment Program (RSP) for monthly drills. I have not been to boot camp yet. This has been the most frustrating experience of my life. The communication is VERY poor. I HIGHLY value my commitments. That said, I am prepared to proceed with military service but NOT with the VA National Guard as this was never the career trajectory I had in mind from the beginning (ROTC). Instead, I've decided to pursue an enlistment into the US NAVY. My question is: can you give me advice on the (a) actions I need to take, (b) notifications I need to make, and (c) options I may legally have? It may be helpful to know that I have never met anyone above the rank of E-5. I don't know who my commander is let alone how to contact them. I have no clue what the chain of command is (hence part of my frustrations). Lastly, because of the bad communication, I recently missed a drill. What are the implications? Can you help?
