MY son DOR'd from EOD in Mar. He is now completing A school, with C school soon to follow. he was told he had to wait 2 yrs before he could try for specOps again. however, recently, they told him he may have a chance at trying again, immediately after completing C school. Does this sound likely, or probable? What could be pros and cons, for example, if he DORs again, where could he end up?Thank you

1. I am a civil service employee coved by FERS since

1. I am a civil service employee coved by FERS since 08/2001.2. I also retired from the US Navy in 1999 and receive military retirement benefits.3. I have a 100% VA service connected disability rating and accordingly receive VA compensation and Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP).4. I am 56 years of age.5. I have made the required military service deposit to include my military time as credible service for FERS retirement. I realize that in order to combine military and FERS time I will have to waive my military retirement pay when I retire from civil service on 12/31/2016. However, in my case the waiver of military retired pay in favor of the combined FERS annuity resulting from it results in higher annuity than keeping the military and FERS retirements separate.6. My questions are as follow:• Will waiving my military retirement pay result in loss of any of my other military retiree benefits, for example, TRICARE, Commissary, etc.?• Will waiving my military retirement pay result in any loss to my VA disability benefits?7. I have been unable to find any reference material that directly addresses my questions and hope that you can answer them and provide me references for the answers.

During this time he has been in a support role and has been recently promoted to e-5. Initially his doctor told him he could get transferred to a Carrier due to his ELT rare. Now they say he is to be submarine disqualified and will not be eligible for Carrier duty due Mental reasons. My son loves the Navy and would like to transfer to a Carrier as an ELT. I am concerned that he will be disqualified and perhaps discharged. What actions should my son take to hopefully retain his rating and stay in the Navy? Is he permitted to reviewing his Personnel and Medical file? Is their someone besides the medical doctor he should speak with ?

There was an argument between myself and two others in the Chief's Mess. Because one of them went outside the Command, we were all investigated for Article 134. Once the other two parties found out about this, they wrote statements to place all the blame on me. I am being relieved for cause and recommended for separation from the Navy after 27 untainted years. What can I do?

Hello,My son is currently waiting in SEPS in the Navy and has been there for 10 days. He does not have an injury that he is being treated for and has no real purpose for being there except to wait. He is very unhappy and says it is very depressing in there and just wants to come home. He has seen many of his shipmates taken to the psych ward because they cannot handle being in SEPS. Is there a way to get my son out faster?
