Clarification: I receive a VA disability compensation while I am also a TPU reservist, which prevents me from drawing income from both sources simultaneously. I have elected to give up drill pay in favor of my higher paying disability pay. Here is the problem: drill pay is taxable, so when Uncle Sam comes to collect, will he be taking back my gross drill pay, or my net drill pay?

Why would your drill pay be less than your VA payment, you shouldn't be able to enlist with 100 percent disability? It is normally to your advantage to take the Drill Pay and forgo the VA payment for the days you drill. If you do nothing, the VA will just deduct the overpayments for those days from you first couple of months payment until the overpayment is met.
