Make It Rain!






Have you been stop-lossed? Like wads of cash? You can get $500 bucks for every month you were retained by the pleasure of the government. Grab your DD-214 and go here to start the registration process. The full press release provides email contacts for alternative routes. You have one year to do this, so get to it!

Sounds like a good way for the gov't to update their locator and other personal data records on everybody.

My husband has been on the ultimate stop-loss for the past year and a half. He developed a blood clot about 2 years ago after a game of touch football for PT, and another one a few months later. Since then the Marine Corps has done pretty much nothing about the clots and pretty much everything to keep him as long as they can. A year and a half after his EAS, he's still in, fighting to get out, while still having the clots. Yet there is nothing that we can do with that year and a half still in!

Hey, it's not really related to stop loss but I just saw this picture and have been trying to share it with people who might be interested.

I think that a lot of people are uncomfortable with combat injuries, especially this extreme, and it's great that someone is trying to bring it to the forefront instead of sweep it under the carpet.

I filed my stop loss claim when this first came out. 20 months of back pay coming my way! Anyone have a clue as to when we can expect to get the $$??
