  4. He was in desert storm. He received 2 letters from the Dept of def in 1997 and 2000 stating that several incidents occurred during his time there. 2 were possible chemical incidents. They concluded that they couldn't determine if they did or did not happen. He was also a diesel mechanic when he was in. Thanks for all your help.
  5. Thanks Berta How the heck can the VA doc say the SA was not found to be SSed if they didn't even have the STRs? Good question. He requested them for 2 years and the Hawaii VA state office asked for them as well and they could not be found. Does he have other claims pending? Yes, he has a General appointment with the same doctor for Respiratory disorders (paralyzed diaphragm), Insomnia and Joint Pain and fatigue. Should he challenge the doctor on the above question since his specialty doctor is a military doctor at Tripler Army med center and stated that in the 90's there wa
  6. Thank you Berta. Here is the DBQ from the C&P. Not sure how to attach. So I cut and paste. LOCAL TITLE: MEDICAL C&P REPORT STANDARD TITLE: INTERNAL MEDICINE C & P EXAMINATION CONSULT AUTHOR: URGENCY: STATUS: COMPLETED Sleep Apnea Disability Benefits Questionnaire Name of patient/Veteran: Is this DBQ being completed in conjunction with a, C&P Examination Request? [X] Yes [ ] No ACE and Evidence Review ----------------------- Indicate method used to obtain medical information to complete this document:
  7. Good morning all. I had a friend who had his C@P exam last week. He had a nexus letter from his specialty doctor stating his condition suggests that his condition happened during military service. After checking his DBQ, the VA doctor noted the doctor NEXUS letter however, she opined that the condition was less likely than not that veterans condition occurred during military service. Any chance the nexus letter carries more weight than the VA exam with the raters.
  8. Here is my posted BVA results.

  9. That is normal. Every year it will change mine also said "the effective date of the last change to your current award was: December 1, 2014". You can go to your disabilities to verify your actual date. My NOD for 100% was dated back to Mar 2012.
