basically im in national guard, im done with basic training and about to go to the AIT. (still attend RSP since i joined NG junior year of high school.)
At the drill i got hurt (my knee) i have told sergeant who is in charge of RSP unit about it. and basically i have been told to ice it and rest it. but my knee injury did not go away. about 2 weeks after drill i went to my civilian doctor because it got really bad to the point when my knee locks up and i cannt walk/run. I got all the paper work to the sergeant next drill.
he told me it is too late to fill out LOD.
my ship date got moved and most likely sergeant said i will get general discharge because i have to get mos qualified with in 2 years since enlistmen, if my knee dont get better i be general discharge
basically is army going to give me compensation and how to get it?

I seriously doubt it is too late for an LOD- go higher up the chain of command- cause without an LOD, the service doesn't have all the answers to give a good decision. 1. To put you out for med reasons they will have to run you thru MED board- they must know what happened (LOD) to treat you right. 2. A MED will decided how banged up you are, and what should be done with you discharge wise. 3. Ultimately the VA decides % and based on that compensation. 4, Based on the MED and their determination of how the VA decides it effects your life figures the % of disability. That can go up or down during your lifetime. Be warned you may have to get an advocate to deal w/VA.

First I do not think it is too late for the LOD, as someone stated I would take that higher, once you get the LOD all it is going to do is pay you for any medical expenses incurred, not sure how the guard handle their paper work, you may or may not get put on orders and paid while on the LOD if you cannot work. I would get copies of everything, the LOD, anything from your doctor etc, you may need it down the line.

I'm total perm disabled, so while I've seen a good deal, there's an obv limit to what I can suggest beyond that, if you'd care to chat further, I'll try, however, while I've seen quite a lot, my advice, honestly, is to comply wit doing exactly what you're told, in terms of care, and be as genuinely compliant as humanly possible, honest, I hope that heppsz if you'd care to chat further, as I'd said, I'm here, OK?
