Significantly less according to DOD. That’s why retirement requires a conversion.

Use a veteran group like DAV, American Legion, Purple Heart... to file for you. They are way more experienced and doesn’t cost you anything. Tough part is the longer you wait the harder it is to prove service connected

Was an active duty ABF4 and I've met more veterans (active duty) than reservists at EY.

When you’re slammed, but all the associates in your area/practice group are slammed as well, how does your firm/partners handle additional work coming in?

I’m already on track for about 215 this month and keep getting buried. More work keeps coming in and I’m on the verge of a breakdown.
