Welcome to USDR - USDR - Uniformed Services Disabled Retirees

This is good stuff, faithful readers. Please take the time to read this.

The "Dignified Treatment of Wounded Warriors Act of 2008," signed by President Bush on Jan. 28, 2008, provides veterans who served on acti9ve duty from Sept. 11, 2001 to Dec. 31, 2009, with an opportunity for review of disability ratings they were given which led to their discharged from the Armed Forces.

To be eligible for a Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR) review, a veteran must have been medically separated during the above mentioned time frame, with a combined disability rating of 20 percent or less, and not have been found eligible for retirement. Over half of the cases that have been completed have been changed and have made those discharged improperly, now eligible for health care, and the ability to sign up for the Survivor Benefit Plan for their families without penalty.

For more information and how to apply contact the PDBR intake unit at the following address:

550 C Street West, Suite 41
Randolph AFB, TX 78150-4743
