Re: What can a VSO do thai I can't (reply)

Re: Went for a sleep study and ended up in locked up! (reply)

Re: MST a long time ago (reply)
There must be someone you confided in at the time (think).  Also, ask for all your military records and check your SMRs for any visits around that time.  Check for a decline in performance or discipline around the time.  Look for...

Re: review for increase (reply)
If you are currently rated at 50%, then you do not qualify per the IU criteria.  Extra Scheduler ratings are far and few between.  Good luck.
