Really interested in continuing my career. I've been inactive/out for 14 years after only serving for 6 originally. I support the Navy as a contracted engineer anyway and would be very useful to them. I also would like Tricare and commissary benefits. Would I still do the DD2807-2 process if I went for a commission? I have to somehow drop from 40% to 30% or less in disability rating, but I think I have a plan how to justify that. Only thing to do now is commit to this and either go to MEPS and start the process or go to the VA and try to decrease my rating. This may take a while.

I was at 60% before I came back on active duty orders. There were like two checks a year that were reduced because of recoupment, but worth it if you still hear the call to serve.

Come back in as an E-5 and then progress to E-6 rank. Approximately a year later, you then can take LDO exam and submit your package.

It not worth it because the va will lesson your disability check due to your drill pay check. You can't double dip, plus the reserve may not take you because of your disability.

They don't lesson your check. You just have to pick which one you want.

That what I mean and if he if already getting 40% disability it would not be worth it. Plus depending on his disability the reserve may not take him.

Let the military tell him, "No". I get disability and I am still in the military. I want the medical insurance and base priveledges.
