This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. As of Feb. 2009, approx. 691,000 reserve servicemembers have been activated in support of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, with many being called for multiple deployments or extended for more than one year. This increased use of the reserve component servicemembers has led to questions about whether reserve component servicemembers might be experiencing a decline in earnings as a result of extended and frequent activations. Studies determined that for calendar years 2004 and 2005, on avg., reserve component servicemembers earn

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Through the Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) program, the VA collaborates with DoD to streamline access to vets' disability benefits by allowing some servicemembers to file a claim and undergo a single exam process prior to discharge. BDD is designed for servicemembers with conditions that, while disabling, do not generally prevent them from performing their military duties. This program can shorten the time it takes for vets to receive benefits by several months. This statement identifies ways VA and DoD could improve these

Center, raising concerns about the care for returning servicemembers. These deficiencies included a confusing disability evaluation system and servicemembers in outpatient status for years without a clear understanding about their plan of care. In response, the Army took a number of actions and DoD formed a joint DoD-VA Senior Oversight Comm. This statement provides info. on the near-term actions being taken by the Army and the broader efforts of the Senior Over

From FY 1994-2009, the DoD separated over 13,000 active military servicemembers under its homosexual conduct policy. These separations represent about 0.37% of the 3.6 million members separated for all reasons. In 2005, a report was issued on the number of separated servicemembers under DoD's homosexual conduct policy who held critical skills from FY 1994 through 2003. This report examined data from FY 2004 through 2009 to determine: (1) the extent to which the policy has resulted in the separation of servicemembers with skills in critical occupations and important foreign languages; and (2) t

In 2005, Congress created a traumatic brain injury (TBI) insurance benefit program, known as TSGLI, to help servicemembers with TBI and other serious injuries with the financial burdens that they and their families face. The Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) administers the program, in collaboration with DoD, while the branches of service are responsible for deciding servicemembers' claims. This report examined: the TSGLI approval rate for TBI claimants, and whether DoD and VA have assurance that claims are processed accurately, consistently, and in a timely manner; and any challenges servicememb
