ABSTRACT
The article deals with an announcement made by Colonel John Sackett, chief of the Combat-Related Service Compensation (CRSC) division of the U.S. Army Human Resources Command's Physical Disabilities Agency, regarding the processing of applications by army retirees. According to Sackett, retirees applying for CRSC will have their applications processed within 30 days of receipt. This has been made possible by increased staffing which has grown from 10 to 70 since its inception in June 2004.
