  1. Broncovet. Well said man. I've been rated 50% for hearing loss and 10% for tinnitus since 2013. I feel it's worst now at 38 then when I got that rating at 33. Depression is huge with my hearing loss. I mean HUGE. I often give up talking to others before I even try. As far as the imo or one. Me and a buddy both used Dr Bash to right an IME for both of us. The person who looked at my friends a greed with everything the ime said and my buddy got 100%...up from his prior 80% The person who looked at mine contested everything in the ime and I remained at my previous 70% I guess the point is.....Yes it's a great weapon....But you are still fighting a flawed system

    RAMP DEVELOPMENT

    Good luck!!!!! Ramps moving slow for you. Most who opted into Ramp in March are already at claim complete. I'll take this as a good sighn though. Denials can come faster than approvals and a c@p likely means they need a proper rating for your disibilities. I sense a win coming!!!!!!!!
  3. Woot woot@!!!!! Huge congrats

    Claimed Denied

    "When I came to from Korea, I was attached to the rear d.there I was in charge of those soldiers coming back from the combat zone so which I trained before deploying.Seeing my peers and fellow soldiers come back traumatized to pointbof not knowing their names,injured and some died made me feel some kinda of way.I even attended to of my best friends funeral who was killed in combat.This is when I felt like a coward and started to drink in order suppress my anger and second guessing my loyality to my brothers I arms." man...this sounds almost exactly like me. Army Infantry on the same base for 7 years. My unit got deployed to Iraq and I stayed rear D because of disibilities I was later medically discharged for. Honestly I never felt like a coward or anything. I had just been deployed to Egypt for 7 months and frankly I was more than happy to stay home with my family lol. They put me as the acting platoon Sgt of roughly 30 guys who stayed back on rear D. Extremely easy gig. but...yup...our buddies who had been killed..their names started popping up and one by one injured people started coming back. Shot 8 times and lived.....shot in the head and lived. My friends before they left...but man..seeing them like that is hard. Especially when your the ncoic and they need your help for out processing and the 100 things that come along with it. But....I was fine. Didn't feel like a coward and too me it's all just a mix of life and luck. So and so got blown up..so and so is in rear D. Just life and luck that I have no direct control over. until......... They told me Sgt Nxxxxxx had been shot in the head and died. He was a good buddy of mine. I wan the transportation section and he ran the ammunition section. We worked side by side in support platoon for a few years... here's the thing....When I wasn't medically cleared to go to Iraq, they put Sgt Nxxxxx in my position is battalion transportation nco. Everything we do we stage our vehicles in a very precise order, not based by name...but by position. Basically if I hadn't got a P3 profile then I would have been sitting in that humvvee and shot in the head instead of Nxxxxxx. At his funeral I saw people pointing at me. Even his wife gave me the coldest eye contact. I will never use his death for personal gain regardless of how I feel. I'm lucky and he's gone. Why should I try and get money for that???? hell focking no.............Im with Asknod.....Just no.... I do have a claim in for depression secondary to my hearing loss though.

    Quest To Prove Tbi

    My tbi RAMP appeal is currently in prep for decision. Hopefully this quest ends in September 2018 lol. How some of you go through this for 10 or 20 years is beyond me. 6 years feels like an eternity to be stressing over the outcome of a contention.
  8. Man...I don't wanna wait another month!!!!!!!!!! He'll no!!!! I'm lucky, only been waiting 41 months since my origional claim date. What's another month or two at this point lol. Keep those updates coming!!!!
  9. I opted into Ramp on June 1st Stayed in claim received till August 30th Then jumped to preparation for decision??? I'll just check my as b8 every 3 days and see what happens lol
  10. I went into Ramp on June 1st 2018 and exactly 90 days later On August 30th it went from claim received to preparation for a decision. Estimated completion Sep 25-Nov 1st. I got a feeling that all three of us will get results this month. Good luck

    Quest To Prove Tbi

    Appreciate the response....I am still on my quest to prove tbi... Dr Bash did a great job on my IME and I was awarded ssdi in Jan 2017... I am currently in the appeal process since June 2016 for tbi as well as some other contentions. As of June 1st I entered Ramp.... Hopefully the quest to prove tbi will end in a few months...Ive grown tired over these years.

    TDIU awarded

    Such great news indeed!!!!!
  13. Kc3.... I think you are perhaps misunderstang???? Regardless of which lane you choose...they can order c and p exams in order to properly rate your newly awarded disabilities.
  14. A lot of good movement for only 120 days. Mine is even faster so far. Sent the the ramp letter on May 29th and my legacy claim has already been removed from benefits. I'e never seen changes in just a week like that. Please keep us informed
