C&p Exam Wednesday For Mrvet

Question

According to the buddy statement stressor #1 by another who served with MRvet filed on 4-2-05 on 21-4138 he states"I was a helicopter crew chief in 1968. I was stationed at Danang and Red Beach with the 478th Aviation CO. I traveled north to Camp Evans and beyond during the day, and back to Danang air strip on Red Beach at night. I recall several incidients of rocket and mortar attacks that happened during the time I spent there from April-Oct 1968" --second stressor: April 1968 "the day before PS was shot down and killed in the Ashau Valley we were at base camp at Red Beach, the TET was in full bloom all compounds around the area were hit at once that nite VC infitrated the compound and there was small arms and mortar fire: I was blown from my position and lost track of PS,VC infiltrators were fought off that nite till dawn gunships were deployed -that am i was treated for scrapes and abrasions and released - PS flew off to supply UNK-helicopter took hits in the cockpit and exploded (MRVet and he were friends)

Claim filed 1998: The BVA remand states" In a Jan 08 SSOC the RO found that the evidence demonstrated mortar attacks on the veterans base in Danang from April-Oct 1968' and records verified the death of PS who the veteran reported had been a friend-

the Board concurs that to this extent these events have been verified, but the other events the veteran claimed to have witnessed during service in Vietnam have not been identified with sufficient specificity to warrant further efforts of verification"

(his original stressor was 10 pages) before we realized about who-what-when and where-

#2: the Board finds evidence of record that the veteran served at Danang when that base received rocket and mortar attacks and that the left leg injury claimed to have been incurred at that time is consistent with the circumstances of his service . As there is no medical evidence relating a present left leg disorder to active service an additional VA exam is required------

(then they did a VA exam on his leg,last week, it took 12 years)

question: so are they even considering the buddy statement stressor #1 or is it being linked into the mortar attacks ?

and I believe in the DSM_IV manual"witnessing or learning about the death of another "

also applies-?

AND WHY DID IT TAKE THEM THREE YEARS TO VERIFY BUDDY STATEMENT :D

should it be mentioned to the examiner he is on SS for PTSD since 03' as well as unemployable -

the last one didnt even read the c-file or she would have known which VA psych,originally treated him in 01'!! she had to ask me-after they released me from security where she had me put if you read this saga before!

CP exam is Wednesday-replies appreciated-Thanks Mrsvet :)

I remember what happened to you. I would most definitely mention the Social Security for the PTSD and also the unemployable since 2003.

Has he turned in the TDIU form to the VA for Unemployable?

Be sure and go back with your husband for this C&P for it is most important.

Always,

Betty Just one of the Guys!

Betty,

we turned in the TDIU back in 06'- the thing is they know he hasnt worked since-his NSC pension- and they offset that with his SS anyway-the lawyer wants to go to this one-what can they do there and they probably wont even let them in-but you can be sure I'm going! what do you think with the stressors being verified? and dont forget they admitted PTSD in the SSOC- and then changed it after they verified stressors.

Thanks Mrsvet

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

      Does anyone know if it does close how long till the backpay hits the bank?
      Also does information only get updated on our claims whenever the site is down?

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
