  1. I got the reopen information off of ebennies. Berta, I will email you the original denial.
  2. I have submitted a couple of secondary conditions (nerve damage, depression) for my S/C DJD. I expected the VA to reopen the original DJD even though I didn't request an increase. However, I do not understand why they reopened my original claims for hearing loss and hips that were denied right after I got out of service 11 years ago. Is this normal, are they messing with me or am I completely missing something.
  3. I was a contractor for Intelligence Command (Army) and they required my TC/SCI clearance with Poly. I was in service to the Army as a contractor. So your arguement is that the Army did not know they were hiring a soldier despite having my Social and clearance? All military intellignece jokes aside, the Army has to auithorize you to go in country. The only way your logic would hold up is I lied to the Army about being in the Army.
  4. Thank you for the quick replies. I did find this little gem of information when looking around. Citation Nr: 0306236 Decision Date: 04/01/03 Archive Date: 04/10/03 DOCKET NO. 01-09 745A The veteran's DD-214 shows that he was in the Air Force until June 1, 1999. While the veteran asserts that he started terminal leave from the Air Force on March 8, 1999, he was still on active duty until June 1, 1999, regardless of whether he was on leave or not. So a individual is on active duty while on terminal leave. Then I found this on nolo.com Type of Accidents Co
  5. I have read a couple different definitions of what is considered service connected. I have always thought that I could not service connect my PTSD because I was a defense contractor in Iraq not a solider. The VA was nice enough to treat me. Actually they were a little too excited to treat me. I was basically confirming their belief that there were all this veteran contractors out there not getting treatment for PTSD. This was way back in 2005. VA diagnosed with me PTSD. This may be a stretch but I was actually on Terminal Leave from the Army for my first week in Iraq as a Defense contractor. M
  6. Currently Service Connected at 40% for Degenerative Joint Disease L4-5 and L5-S1. I have never reopened, appealed or made any new claims since I was originally discharged in 2004. I am looking to reopen a denied claim for hypertension. I am currently prescribed medication to control my hypertension and have been for roughly 8 years. I do not think I meet the requirement for a disability rating above 0%. However, I do not understand why I was denied for service connection in the first place. This is the what the Rating Decision dated on March 3rd, 2005 states: Service connection for hyp
