  • Line of Duty (LOD)

    Once the military has issued an LOD determination for a qualifying medical condition, the SM may seek care for the LOD injury/illness at their local MTF.  If the member does not reside in a MTF area, the Military Medical Support Office (MMSO) will authorize care.

    For Soldiers referred under the duty-related process, the IDES is comprised of the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) and the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB).


    The DoD and the VA have started a new joint disability system known as the IDES.  The IDES combines the DoD and VA disability processes and uses a streamlined evaluation for deliver of a total benefits and compensation package.

  • Army Body Composition Program

    Commanders will monitor all members of their command to ensure that they maintain proper weight, body composition and personal appearance.  Soldiers will be weighed semi-annually (October and April).  SM exceeding the screening table weight or identified by the CDR for appearance suggesting that body fat is excessive will be taped.  Soldiers failing to meet their proper body weight and body fat standards will be entered into the ABCP and flagged.


    Multiple mandatory administrative requirements will be accomplished with their unit readiness NCO.  Soldiers will be weighed and taped monthly to monitor progress.  AGRs will be referred for nutritional counseling.  All SMs will be reenrolled into unit remedial physical fitness program.  SMs who continue on a monthly weigh-in and body fat taping will be counseled to show progress or lack of.  SM who do not make satisfactory progress in the ABCP after a 6-month period and for whom no medical reason exist to cause the overweight condition will receive a mandatory bar to reenlist or administrative separation.

    Their AOC/PMOS standards outlined in DA Pam 611-21.
