If you can, try to get at least 60% as that qualifies you for DV tags, free hunting licenses, etc...

In my experience, many people who qualify for greater disability don't get it because they don't know how the system works. A few get higher disability than they should because they know how to work the system. If possible, make a copy of your medical records (I spent a couple of hours doing so) and go through and identify medical issue trends that are in them. If there is any condition you suspect may qualify you for continued disability support once you retire, ensure it is clearly documented in your records.

You know your medical history far better than someone at the VA, it is your responsibility to make sure each and every service-related issue is examined for a potential disability rating before you get out. You can still get an increased afterward, but it is a much tougher and laborious task to do so afterward...

Lastly, while it might seem daunting, millions of of servicemembers have successfully made the transition from the military back to civilian live. Some aspects are challenging, but stay committed to the course and focused on the tasks at hand and you'll do fine!

I would look at USAA for sure. If you are considering law enforcement,look at NE side like Schertz, Selma, Garden Ridge, Cibolo, Universal City, etc. there are a ton of small towns all around SA that might be hiring too.
