My husband is still active duty. His treatments are almost complete, he has a few more surgeries. I have no idea what to expect. He is in Seattle WA, and I am in Alaska. We need more help understanding the process, as well as what we need to do to find help with his pay. The goverment is taking most of his pay for reasons they cannot explain to us. He has been to meetings with finance, and so far, all we've been able to do is agree because we do not know what the rules are. My husband says he cannot do anything because he signed the contract. My husband is an E-5. I have no real understanding of pay, and I was told that I was NOT invited to finances discussion with my husband, so I was left out of any discussion. My husband was still in chemotherapy, so he wasn't in real great shape to fully understand what they had told him. In other words, we need help understanding the process/outcome of a medical board, and pay issues, so that he is not "screwed over". Any help/advice is very well appreciated.
