Does The Air Force Discharge, If You Develop Thyroid Cancer And Have The Thyroid Removed During Active Duty?

Postby Drogo » Sun Apr 30, 2017 3:53 pm

In your daughter's case, she will have to go before the Physical Evaluation Board.
The Air Force needs to make a determination as to whether your daughter can continue in her Air Force career with her existing medical condition.
If she is allowed to stay in the Air Force, she may have certain duty restrictions depending on the circumstances.
If the Air Force determines she cannot perform her duties because of her medical condition, she will be medically separated.
She will receive an honorable discharge, which means she retains all her VA benefits (including the GI Bill) and she will receive some type of disability payment from the DOD for the rest of her life.
Depending on the circumstances, she may be entitled to care at a VA hospital for this condition for the rest of her life as well.

A few months ago, I was very sick, zero energy, freezing cold, depressed, weight gain, thought I was dying. I read every word of this Hypothyroidism Revolution program and followed all the advice. My life turned around the first week. I started to feel human again. Within weeks my energy came back and I felt like living again.

Get the entire hypothyroidism revolution system today? just choose the best option for you.
