             Department of Defense (DoD) Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR)


                                                WHAT IS THE PDBR?
The Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR) provides Veterans who were medically separated from their Military
Service between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2009, with the opportunity for review of their disability ratings
to ensure fairness, consistency and accuracy. The PDBR was created by Congress as part of the Dignified Treatment of
Wounded Warriors Act of2008.Signed into law by President Bush on January 28, 2008, the PDBR began reviewing its
first cases in June 2009.

                                          WHO CAN APPLY TO THE PDBR?
To be eligible for PDBR review, a Veteran must have been medically separated between September 11, 2001 and
December 31, 2009 with a combined disability rating of 20 percent or less, and not have been found eligible for
retirement. Former reserve members with greater than 20 years of Total Federal Military Service yet with fewer than 20
years of Active Duty and who meet the criteria listed above are also eligible to apply. There are roughly 75,000 eligible
Veterans who are eligible to apply to the PDBR under the stated criteria. As of December 2010, just over 2,000 Veterans
have applied.

                                           HOW DOES THE PDBR OPERATE?
The Department of Defense (DoD) designated the Air Force as the lead component to establish and operate the PDBR.
The PDBR evaluates and reviews cases for all services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard) and their
reserve components. Located in Arlington, VA, the PDBR is a true joint service board (and the only existing joint
service disability evaluation and review board). Each case is jointly reviewed by representatives from three separate
services (to include the service of the applicant). The PDBR examines each applicant's medical separation, compares
DoD and Veteran's Administration (VA) ratings, and makes a recommendation to the respective Service Secretary (or
their designee) as to whether or not the Secretary concerned should change a disability rating (which reflects a more
accurate rating at the original time of separation) resulting in the Veteran's transfer to the Disability Retirement rolls. By
law, the PDBR may not recommend a lower disability rating for any rating reviewed. All changes to disability ratings
that are approved by the Service Secretary concerned will be backdated and effective the date of the original Physical
Evaluation Board. The PDBR exclusively uses the Veterans Administration Schedule for Rating Disabilities (V ASRD)
as its adjudication guidance in reviewing unfitting conditions considered by the Disability Evaluation System [Medical
Evaluation Board (MEB) and Physical Evaluation Board (PEB)]. If a particular condition was recognized and
documented by the Service Department Disability Evaluation System, the PDBR will review it to ensure the Veteran
was properly credited for physical ailments which may have caused the eventual medical separation of the Veteran. If a
Veteran has a condition he/she feels should have been considered by his/her MEB or PEB, but it was not a part of
his/her MEB or PEB, the avenue of redress is not through the PDBR; but instead through the Veteran's Board for
Correction of Military/Naval Records (BCMRINR). Upon receipt of a Veteran's application, the PDBR will request
copies of all applicable VA medicaland rating documents as well as all Military Service Department Physical Evaluation
Board related records, including the Veteran's Service Treatment Record (STR). The Veteran may submit any additional
information pertinent to the request with his/her application. The review is records based only and no provision is made
for a personal appearance by the Veteran or his/her representative.

                                       WHY SHOULD I APPLY TO THE PDBR?
Since the PDBR began reviewing cases in June 2009, in more than 50% of cases, Veterans have had their original
disability determination upgraded, resulting in a disability retirement for the Veteran. Although no guarantee of this re
characterization rate can be made going forward, it is a good indicator of the degree of success applicants have had with
the board up until now. If a Veteran is awarded a disability retirement as a result of the review process, it may not result
in any immediate monetary gain by the Veteran (previously awarded payments from the VA and DoD as related to the
original disability must be recouped by the government, prior to new payments being made; but this recoupment is made
from the new monthly disability annuity payments going forward). Regardless, from the time of disability retirement
award, the Veteran becomes eligible for all retirement benefits normally awarded military department retirees (health
care, exchange, commissary, travel, etc). Information about the PDBR, how to apply, including links to the application
form (DD 294) is available at the following website: www.health.mii/About MHS/Organizations/MHS Offices and
Programs/PDBR.aspx

                                           LETTERS HOME

From SSGT DAVE D’ARCY (91-04): “I was medically retired from the Guard in
September 2004 due to contracting multiple sclerosis the year before I retired in
August 2003 (just two weeks before I was going to be married).
         The first two years after I retired from the Guard, I was essentially a house-
hubby. I volunteered with my church, and mostly cleaned the house and kept
things nice as my wife worked through her graduate degree from Eastern Michigan
University. These two years also found us vacationing in Orlando, Florida as well
as spending our summers on the St. Lawrence River on Round Island (the summer cottage of my wife's
parents).
         In 2006, my wife graduated from Eastern Michigan University and she took a job with the Hol-
land School District. We adopted a precocious and rambunctious 8 wk old yellow lab female we named
Sarah. In 2007, we bought a home near Lake Michigan, on 5.6 acres of heavily wooded parcel of land
just a mile (as the crow flies) from Lake Michigan. Running out of things to do, I re-affiliated with a local
Civil Air Patrol unit in the area, continued to do routine jobs for our church and even found time to volun-
teer as a dog-walker at our local humane society. Recently, I started volunteering with the Ottawa County
Chapter of the American Red Cross, to help with blood drives and as a Military Service Coordinator,
helping folks connect with loved ones who need emergency help to get home, or a message to loved ones
overseas.
         In 2009, we adopted a dog from the Ottawa Humane Society, a very beautifully-tempered yellow
lab-gray hound mix (this is a very interesting mix indeed). Also, Linda's daughter Christy and her son-in-
law, Ryan Pendleton, took a huge leap of faith by leaving South Dakota to try to find work in Michigan.
Ryan picked up something quick, but it took Christy a little longer. After a year of living with us, they
were able to move to Grand Rapids to be near their new found jobs. Now Ryan is an Apple Computer
associate and Christy now sells Sprint cell phones. They are very happy.
         2011 hopes to find us enjoying our time and reaching out to family and friends and a few pilgrims
that come our way. My wife Linda never missed the east side of Michigan, but aside from the time I
spent on active duty, the east side of the state was my home for most of my adult life. Now we need to
make a life for ourselves over here on the west side of the state.”

                     ONLINE DATA BASES TO RESEARCH CHARITIES

The Michigan State Attorney General’s office has a free online database to assist prospective donors,
grant-making foundations and others in locating and evaluating specific charities.

AGCharitySearch provides expanded information on charities and professional fundraisers who solicit
donations in Michigan. The database will also help charities to monitor their annual registration status
with the Attorney General's office.

The service allows online access to information derived from reports filed with the attorney general by
charities and their fundraisers. At the website, visitors are able to confirm that a charity is currently
registered to solicit donations in Michigan and to generate a detailed report on the charity that includes:
its charitable purpose, recent reported financial data reported by the charity, its federal tax-exempt status
(for example, whether the IRS has granted an exemption as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization), contact
information, and when and where it was created.

Prospective donors are also able to perform general searches for various types of registered charities. For
instance, donors may search by key words within the organization’s purpose, as well as by city, county,
state, name, or any combination of these.

Charities soliciting donations in Michigan will also be able to use AGCharitySearch to confirm that their
registration submissions have been received by the Attorney General’s Charitable Trust Section and to
verify that a particular professional fundraiser is properly licensed to conduct charitable solicitations in
Michigan.

The attorney general's office has the primary responsibility for ensuring charitable assets are being used
for the purpose for which they were donated and that organizations are acting as responsible stewards of
these assets.

The Michigan AG’s Charity Search website is www.ag.state.mi.us/charitabletrust. For organizations
outside of Michigan, try www.guidestar.org.

                                SELFRIDGE SPAD PROJECT
                                 SELFRIDGE MILITARY AIR MUSEUM
The Selfridge Military Air Museum is an outreach effort of the Michigan Air Guard Historical Association
(MAGHA). Volunteers at the Air Museum have constructed a full-size replica of a World War I SPAD XII, an
aircraft flown by the First Pursuit Group in World War I and at Selfridge Field when the First Pursuit Group moved
to the Field in 1919.

As the replica is a full-scale, historically accurate replica with fabric-covered wings, it was critical for the
preservation of the SPAD that we display it indoors. Existing floor space was inadequate inside the Museum
building so our plans included the construction of a SPAD hangar in our Air Park that is accessible to our guests.

It cost approximately $22,000.00 in material for our volunteers to build the display and to have the SPAD Hangar
constructed contractually. As both MAGHA and the Air Museum are IRS-recognized 501c(3) non-profit
organizations with an all-volunteer staff and no federal or state funds for the operation or our Museum and the
maintenance of our buildings and displays, public and corporate support for this project is critical to partially
offsetting the large capital investment we made for this project.

All donations to this project are tax-deductible per Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Service Code and a
receipt for all donations will be provided.

If you would like to participate in this worthwhile effort, please complete the form and payment information below
and mail it to the Selfridge Military Air Museum, 27333 C Street, Bldg 1011, Selfridge ANG Base MI 48045.

                                     SELFRIDGE MILITARY AIR MUSEUM
The Michigan Air Guard Historical Association (MAGHA) has completed construction of a Memorial Area in the center of the Air Park at
the Selfridge Military Air Museum. The memorial is a place to honor all members of the military who gave their lives in the line of
duty and in the service of this great nation, to recognize all those who have in the past or who are currently serving their
country, and to acknowledge the contributions made by families and companies to the preservation of freedom. Pictures of the
Memorial Area and the Memorial Wall are above. The centerpiece is an elevated F-86 Sabre aircraft, an aircraft flown, maintained, and
supported by three Michigan Air Guard units in the mid-1950s. Flanking the F-86 is the Memorial Wall topped by engraved Memorial
Bricks such as those shown below.




We invite you to become part of this memorial and to recognize a unit, an individual, or a family by purchasing an engraved b rick that
will become a permanent part of the Memorial Wall. Cash donations for the Memorial project are also welcome. All memorial brick
purchases and donations for this effort are tax-deductible per Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Service Code. Engraved memorial
bricks cost $100.00 per brick for non-members (cost includes a one-year membership in MAGHA), $75.00 per brick for
members, and $50.00 per brick when multiple brick orders are made. For example, a one-brick order from a MAGHA member
would cost $75.00, a two-brick order would cost $125.00, and a three-brick order $175.00. Information about MAGHA can be
obtained by calling 586-239-6768, by visiting our web site at www.selfridgeairmuseum.org, or by writing to us at the address below.

Brigadier General Michael L. Peplinski
127th Wing Commander
29553 George Avenue
Selfridge ANGB MI 48045

Dear 127th Wing Members

With this letter, I announce my retirement effective 1 July 2011. It has been a privilege to serve
as your commander during a very dynamic period in the 127th Wing’s history. This command is
the crown jewel of my 32 years in military service. After five years at the helm and energy
rapidly depleting, it is time to give way to emergent leaders. I leave excited to pursue a new
focus as a private citizen. Together we accomplished many important goals and I am proud to
say that I was an airman on the 127th team for the last 12 years.

Additionally, I am pleased to announce that Major General Gregory Vadnais, The Adjutant
General, has selected my successor. Colonel Michael Thomas will assume command this
summer. Colonel Thomas has served as your vice commander for the past three months and as
the commander of the Air Refueling Group for the five years prior. He has quickly grasped the
leadership complexities within this wing and across the base. He has what it takes to lead the
wing to success across all the mission sets it is tasked to perform. I assure you that I am leaving
you in good hands.

Watching the professionalism with which this wing accepted and accomplished two major
conversions since 2005 brings a big smile to my face. No other wing has done that. The military
and civilian members of the 127th Wing are simply amazing. It has been an honor to serve with
you.

                                                  Sincerely




                                                  MICHAEL L. PEPLINSKI, Brig Gen, MI ANG

                          DOD to drop Social Security numbers from ID Cards
                                       (continued from page 1)
An 11-digit DOD benefits number also will appear on the cards of those people eligible for DOD benefits. The first
nine digits are common to a sponsor, the official said, and the last two digits will identify a specific person within the
sponsor's family.

Social Security numbers embedded in the bar codes on the back of identification cards will remain there for the time
being, and will be phased out beginning in 2012.

The department will replace identification cards as they expire. "Because cards will be replaced upon expiration, it will
be approximately four years until all cards are replaced with the DOD ID number," Matoush said.

The identity protection program began in 2008, when DOD started removing Social Security numbers from family
member identification cards.

These great questions and answers are from the days when Hollywood Squares' game show
responses were spontaneous, not scripted, as they are now. Peter Marshall was the host
asking the questions, of course.

Paul, what is a good reason for pounding meat? Paul Lynde: Loneliness!

Do female frogs croak? Paul Lynde: If you hold their little heads under water long enough.

If you're going to make a parachute jump, at least how high should you be? Charley Weaver:
Three days of steady drinking should do it.

True or False, a pea can last as long as 5,000 years. George Gobel: Boy, it sure seems that way
sometimes.

You've been having trouble going to sleep. Are you probably a man or a woman? Don Knotts:
That's what's been keeping me awake.

According to Cosmopolitan, if you meet a stranger at a party and you think that he is
