    Island turns, when I get fed and then get to go home.

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    Glad to hear you can predict the future. Document it all. Send it all to the va. You have no idea what minor issue now may be the bane of your existence in 20 years. I used to have similar thoughts about folks “milking” the va. But the way the va operates is so completely foreign to military folks (and military docs) that I think the best way is to throw as much (legitimate) poo at the wall as possible and see what sticks. Sleep apnea? No idea. Get a sleep study and find out. GERD? if you have recurrent heartburn that’s worth 10-20%. Knee issues to the point you have a hard time going up stairs? Not service related. One time plantar fasciitis that has completely healed, 10%. Broken digits that don’t work right anymore with reems of X-rays and pt, not service connected. It completely seems like there is zero rhyme or reason to the answers the va gives....until you start to peel back the onion a bit and wrap your head around a completely foreign way of doing business. It helps to have good help. But until it all starts making sense, throw as much (legitimate) stuff at the va as possible.

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    Sidebar .... getting the va rating stuff (if any) figured out as soon as you separate is paramount. It’s not about the money (and you can decline it if it suits your moral high ground). It’s about getting service connection and a “chain of evidence” established while its fresh....so that 40 years from now when you need a kidney transplant because the chem trails cocktail of the month turned out to be carcinogenic you aren’t thoroughly screwed. Dont scoff the va stuff. It’s worth the effort early. And glad to hear you’ve got everything all figured out ....

    Getting into the check-of-the-month club makes a lot of follow on decisions much much easier. Recommend.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    On the upside, you can knock out a masters with very little extra effort and if you can fog a mirror you’ll make O-5. On the downside, it’s usaf pme in all its glory.
  22. You have a lot of odd assumptions in your spreadsheet. And I would expect $390k to do a little better than $200k
