IRR Case Study #3

Matter: Appeal of an IRR Involuntary Mobilization Exemption Case; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD

Service: Army

Summary: This case involved representation of a Soldier on appeal. He had submitted his own case initially, and the Commander HRC ST Louis denied his request. He then called our office for representation on appeal.

We submitted initial materials for the appeal within two weeks of our client's unfavorable decision. Then, once the appeal was properly opened, we still had to make a full presentation in time for the case to be considered by the Delay and Exemption Team in ST Louis. We did that.

Our client had failed to put sufficient evidence in his initial file, and St Louis acted accordingly in denying his petition. When we were retained, we did a comprehensive review of his entire military and medical history, both active duty and Reserve, and following those early phone interviews, we outlined a plan for him to follow. He did everything necessary.

Armed with new and sufficient evidence, we perfected the appeal to St Louis in a timely fashion.

Result: On 20 February 2009, about a month after we submitted our initial brief, our client received official word from St. Louis that his appeal had been granted and that his exemption was now approved. Our client's honorable discharge should be processed within four to six weeks from the appeal approval date.

Highlights: Taking a case for an injured, confused and angry Soldier who had little idea how to properly prepare an appeal, and working that appeal through to a successful conclusion.
