    • YIPPEE!!!!!!! This sounds like maybe you used my favorite tactic--GCY VA- "Go CUE Yourself VA." He he. If a decision contains a legal error to a claimant's detriment, it can be much faster ( in some cases) to ask them to CUE their decision because otherwise the error stands until maybe it is resolved with a NOD, DRO , etc etc etc.... If they do not react favorably however on this type of request or Reconsideration Request, and the NOD date looms close, it is still  imperative to file the NOD. My SMC CUE retro took 9 years...but my last GCY Cue took mere weeks (maybe just days--because -I raised a ruckus with the Director of my RO on that one because it again involved probative evidence that they completely ignored and the posthumous so called C & P was prepared by ,in my opinion, someone with NO medical background at all. I believe VA makes many errors in retros and certainly in violating 38 CFR 4.1 et al ( to include the great 4.6 part). If VA can use CUE  against us, -which they try to do to reduce vets sometimes,then we can use the same regulation against them, if their legal error has cost us cash. THIS IS GREAT NEWS Gastone and I want to thank you for all of the outstanding advice you give vets here. You have helped Many and my Thank You is long overdue to you! Enjoy this  Victory!
    • I think were all special Hamslice  
    • NOD- Notice of Disagreement.The DAV sounds very supportive of this. Still ,if the VA does not favorably resolve this and the NOD one year deadline looms close, you must file a NOD at that point. You have good evidence and fortunately the "knee pain" diagnosis was changed to bursitis. They still need to give you a C & P exam,unless maybe the ortho doc's opinion was recent and thorough enough to cover how they could rate this.??? That is concerning. But ebenefits is not always a reliable source to track this stuff.
    • Funny thing is...when I went to my appointment yesterday  the clinic was like a empty clinic  not very many veterans was even in there , this was 1:40 pm most of the examining rooms were empty. and a lot of the clerks, CNA's, Dr's /Nurses were getting off duty (1:30pm?) What BS Shape our VAMC System is in.  eh! ................Buck
    • Yes sir I agree VA HealrhCare is not the best in America ,  just opposite of what President Clinton mention back in his day. I was told I had what looks to be oral cancer from a VA Dentist on 8-19-2016  he mention getting me an appointment with oral surgery clinic ENT Clinic...the earliest they could possible see me was November 24 th 2016 for a cancer screening and  Biopsy... I thought BS  I  got in touch with my PCP on myhealthyvet Secure Message..she mention she would see what she could do...never heard back, got in touch with  the Hospital So called Advocates ...little did that help, So I went to the Hospital Administrator and told him this was not Acceptable and just out right Ridiculous  and if you don't get me an appointment within a week...I will email/or I'll call Bob Mc Donald  Personally, he is the Secretary  of VA   (in case you don't know who he is ) and I'll tell him about this and a whole lot of other needless shit that's been going on Here in this VAMC. I said this is not a threat but a Promise. I got a call the next day to report at ENT Clinic on 24th Aug 2016  (which was yesterday)  they all were super nice & they did a Biopsy on me and set up a follow up appointment (Results of the Biospy on Sept 1-2016 For this very reason and about a 100 more is why I seek other private insurance. ...................Buck

Finally Received My Military Personnel Records

10 posts in this topic

I finally received my military personnel records. After a quick review, I found that it was just a copy of the contents of my 201 file. It also had my DD214, copies of awards, but contained no content specific to any of my units. Is that normal?

I did some digging and a couple of my units were shut down.

I know there may be retention periods for certain documents, but was hoping to get copies of training records, PT tests, counseling statements from when I was young and stupid, etc...

Problem 1--NPRC sends what they "think" you need. If you think something is missing, you can submit another SF 180. Be sure to state this is a follow up request for a full & complete copy of your personnel records. But your 201 file is your personnel records.

Unless you really screwed up, letters of counselling are usually kept in a seperate derogatory information file (or whatever they call them now) which could purged after a sufficient numbers of attaboys, PCS, discharge, etc.

If you need unit-specific stuff--morning reports, etc., then you'll need to submit yet another SF180 and specify what you are looking for, the unit, and your dates of assignment.

12R3G,

I'll be submitting a new SF180 pretty quickly!

Thanks!

It took me 3 tries to get the majority of my records and I still did not get them all. No mention of a broken hand or a nose patched back together anywhere in them. When I filed for my disability claim I made sure to state that the records I received from VA were incomplete.

Try filling out a form 180 and requesting your DA form 20, from the NPRC. It includes all assigned units, promotions, entry test scores, security clearances, awards, punishments, lost time, etc. - basically everything you did in the Army.

Were you hospitalized for either? If you request your STRs (or get a copy from the VA), what you get is the contents of your outpatient file (the one the hospital kept and you handcarried when PCS'ing). Hospital records (clinical notes, etc.) are kept by the hospital and eventually retired to the NPRC. Depending on your branch of service, hospital records may first be archieved at a regional medical center or other storage facility prior to being retired to NPRC.

There is information on this at the NPRC website. You'll need to know the hospital and approximate treatment dates.
