I am getting medically retired with a NLT in April. A good friend of mine got medically retired last year and he's been helping me with a few things in the MEB process. I know he had to fight to get a retirement award, I think flag too. Nobody has even asked me yet about bullets for an award or last NCOER or anything. Is this normal, or is it that since I am getting medically retired, it's not a thing like other retirements?

Also, not to sound entitled but I feel like an AAM or maybe even an ARCOM would be an insult for my retirement or end of service award. I have held several positions greater than my pay grade, excelled in many areas of leadership, I have impacted Garrison's policy and BDE/BN operations.

On your 2nd part. If you want X award I recommend that you write it yourself. If you want a MSM, submit the narrative and the award to your rater. I will tell you that after you get out an award from the military will mean little to you. Your focus will shift to setting the conditions for after your transition. Best of luck as well. Get up on LinkedIn and start networking.

I got medically retired as well. I just wanted my DD214 and a flag. When you get your first percentages talk to you PEBLO about increasing it. It is a pretty easy process. Good luck!
