Whats the terms on a Medical Discharge, how long do you spend in Hook, and is there a payout once your discharged? Also, roughly how long do they give you to rejoin. I'm curious, because i may be facing an MD.
Is it possible to get an MD after leaving 20 years ago. I'm fairly certain I got a dose of something that scrambled my brain causing me to leave early missing out on a payout. I have also always long to rejoin because I am certain I still have something to offer Army. Or at least all the local camp bikes.
Sunny - Or you may not be facing an MD - these things are not always inevitable and your attitude to treatment and rehab will go a long way to keeping you in. Listen to the MOs, physios and ITC gym staff and take it from there.
IIRC, the terms are dependent on how long you've served - but that may have changed as it's been a few years. If you've done less than a year, things may be looking fairly slim. But we don't want to give you that.
With glasses I was seeing 20/15; after lasik I have never had that kind of clarity. I have come to think of lasik as a brain operation, not just an eye operation. After spending that $$ to see worse (let's say about 20/30 IN GOOD LIGHT), I don't wear glasses any more. LOL
