Long story short, I’ve been dealing with the same back injury since June of 2020 and have had my profile extended every month. My pain management doctor just extended it 90 days causing me to be dropped from ALC for the 4th time. I have to attend ALC prior to December which is when I can be boarded for E7.

What do I need to do? I know the events of the ACFT that I can take and am able to do the mandatory events.

Most locations have a policy that you have to exhaust pain management and physical therapy prior to being placed on a permanent profile. Tell your PCM you're ready for a P2 and you no longer want any more temp profiles. Have the same conversation with pain management as well

Pain management extended my profile for 90 days. I did physical therapy for 4 months. I will talk to new PCM when I get to Arizona

SSG (Join to see) there is a retired DAV Service Officer who has 13 years experience in the this area and has a proven success record in aiding Veterans with Disability claims at the Regional Office in Winston-Salem NC. FYI PO3 Phyllis Maynard is a member of the RP family and has been a good resource for many members.

SPC Nancy Greene Awwww! I see what you did there! Ha! The irony is so epic here. Remember that karma and circumstance is a interrelated force. Asking for help from someone he once booted off. But Phyllis in my opinion is one those classy people she would actually help him. I hope this is a humbling experience and why one should not burn bridges or purposely alienate others.

SP5 (Join to see) - due to budget cuts and fear of choking hazards, they eliminated the pacifiers and opted for jolly rancher candy because some tend to swallow anything... wasn’t that sweet of them
