@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

1. Can someone tell me what ETS stands for? I know it's when you get out of service but what are the actual words that start with E, T, and S? I am trying to help my shrink w/ his IMO and I remember most of the other acronyms but not ETS.

2. Just to double check, I said that EER stands for Enlisted Efficiency Report. If anyone can confirm that I would appreciate it.

Seems like the older I get the more swiss cheese my brain becomes.

Thanks for the help,

Thanks to all who replied.

I wonder if the Vietnam vets who believe it means "Estimated Time of Separation" as opposed to "Expiration of Time of Service" aren't correct for their time in service during a war with the draft in place where Uncle Sam could decide when you left so your ETS was an "estimate" vs the younger troops (like myself who served right afterwards - hey, almost 50 and in the "younger" group for a change!!) who joined the volunteer Army and had a contract end date, hence, Expiration of Time of Service, which, for us, may be equally correct. Doesn't much matter anyway since hip pocket orders have always been Uncle's option.

Again, thanks to all who replied. I appreciate the help. I figure if we can't come to a consensus here on hadit then the VA won't know the difference if I spell it out wrong and my civie shrink surely doesn't have a clue so I'll just flip a coin.

Thanks,
TS Snave
