To add, this also might have been considered by VA as a re-open under 38 CFR 3.156 which I mentioned before here.....too many different threads...dont know where that was....
and if so, that would require a C & P ,which I think they gave the veteran here.
And if so ,that might render the CUE claim moot anyhow, and then render a better EED,under 3.156.....which is what I think 2nd MARDIVDOC is seeking........
I have no idea how to answer that question.
I don't know what the CUE was filed on ,or when, or how the legal error was defined,or in what decision the error might have been made , or the date of any subsequent SC award for the exact same disability.
Fat, is your mother still alive so that she could file a DIC claim?

Breedlove, that sounds positive, I don't think you'll have anything to worry about, especially with the good in-service documentation. I hope you receive good news quickly, and please keep us updated. This is a great forum if you have questions or need assistance, it's helped me tremendously. Again, best of luck to you
