I found a GREAT website related to VA benefits and the military retirement process

January 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment

There is so much that goes into a military medical retirement.  Lots of acronyms (ie. PEB, MEB, VA, DOD), lot of appointments, lots of paperwork, and lots of organizing.  The whole thing is very overwhelming to me.  It is stressful enough to know that Travis is going to get a major pay cut but making sure that he gets all of the benefits he deserves is not as simple as it seems it should be. 

There has been a lot of controversy in the media with the VA including their rating system.  It is hard to know what to do and who to trust.  I started searching online for information and I found a WONDERFUL website/message board that is filled with hundreds if not thousands or retired veterans and their family members.  There is so much valuable information on the website as well as a lot of friendly helpful people.

Anyone looking for help with a military PEB, MEB, medical retirement, or medical separation should check out http://vets.yuku.com/directory.

    Hello! We met with a VA Service Officer yesterday. My husband is a Viet Nam vet and has a GBM IV brain tumor. It appears that they will deny the claim. Do you have any information on brain tumors and military disability payments? Thanks, Susan Kingsley
