Received my TDRL packet
I finally received the packet with all of my TDRL (Temporary Disability Retirement List) information in it. It contained information explaining my benefits as well as instructions for my time on the TDRL. I basically need to see a military doctor every 18 months, keep the Marines informed of any change of address or other significant changes (marriage, children, etc), and choose a Tricare health insurance plan.
As for it aiding my VA registration dilemma, it sadly didn’t help at all.
The packet also contained something I didn’t expect to receive. Inside was a bright red folder with two certificates enclosed, one from the Marine Corps and one from President Bush.
