Remaining on duty following a transplant

Post by NavyTim »

To All:

Looking for any and all stories or known stories of military members that have remained serving following a transplant. Although specific transplant was kidney, any story will do. BUMED is saying "non-deployable overseas", however, there are many reservists that serve that can not deploy overseas for many reasons.

Here is a recent national story on the subject and the civilian that donated the kidney:

Appreciate the assistance, and the PEB Board Review will be getting the package to request to remain serving within the month.
