    • It would help too if we can read here the actual C & P exam results.
    • It does not pay to compare your claims and percentages to any other veteran's situation. It sounds to me like you are missing the inservice nexus factor for the foot condition and also the anxiety and depression. Can you scan and attach their Reasons and Bases here and the evidence list (cover your C file #, name, address prior to scanning it) The decision should state what is lacking and the VCAA letter (5103 waiver) told you what evidence they needed.
    • It could be?   it will say what it is IF its QTC or not,  The VA uses for contracting out  the C&P Exams  OR it could be some other contractor?  QTC is Located  there in Calif. (Home Office) The VA uses QTC Contractors here in Tx too from Calif.....it also could be  the VA  doing the C&P? ...The packet/letters should have instructions? 
    • I get 73 also.  Either they made a mistake or you are missing a disability.
    • I was just curious if Request for Increase claims move faster than new claims. I understand that different ROs and certain claims take longer but I was talking to another vet and we didn't quite know the answer. I assumed they would move faster because the VA typically already has the evidence from the past and are now looking at more or newer evidence.

Crsc Claim Denied

9 posts in this topic

I just received the denied letter from the Air Force for CRSC. I am 30% disabled from VA as the result of spinal injury/surgery. There was not one distinct event that caused my problems, but the hours of combat flying in a tight cockpit, the constant vibration, the pulling of G's, the hard landings, etc. are suspect. Anyone have any advice for success for an aviator to receive an approved claim? I appreciate your help.

CRSC is for retirees with 20 years of service or have been retired prior to 20 years directly due to service combat - related disability-

that was

1.attributed to any service injury with receipt of the Purple Heart-

0r

2.resulting from armed conflict or

3.resulting from performance under conditions simulating warfare or

4. occuring through an instrumentality of war.

This program gets a little more involved than that and I have posted more info here available under a search at hadit-or go to www.defenselink.mil/prhome/mppcrsc.html

If you gain an eventual 50% SC (by re-opening or Nodding the 30% if you still have time- with qualifying period of retirement service you could then possibly be eligible for CRDP and not CRSC.

Did DOD give you appellate rights and is there some documentation in your SMRs or personnel records that would put you into the combat criteria?

Such as-did you fly sorties in direct support of combat grounds ops----

I would resubmit I think it was last weeks AF times that talked about all the back injuried to pilots due to the same situation you describe. Go to Air force Times on line print the article out and send it to them, this is the AF Drs saying this use there own words against them good luck

I thin Berta hit the nail on the head ".resulting from performance under conditions simulating warfare" any type of fighter training sorties always are simulating war unless you are just surging to put numbers on the board ( I am an old pro super we all know that game.) I did some more research for you and found the article I was talking about it is in the May 18th Air Force times on page 19 and it quotes Flight surgeon Lt. Col Brian Pinkston who is chief of operational medicine for the Air Force Medical support agency. If you need the article PM me with your snail mail addy I still have the paper

Good Luck and god bless

Thanks for the help and suggestions. I did send documentation supporting the performance under conditions simulating warfare as well as the number of actual combat hours I flew. I flew 119 Combat Sorties and 20 Combat Support Sorties. I'm searching the Air Force Times now to find the article. I'll let you know if I have trouble accessing. Thanks again for your help!

What was the nexus (cause) that the VA used to service connect your back condition?
