    What's a RO? I will check to see if I have one close. And what's the MFIC? Thanks

    I cannot get a hold of a VSO rep. They will not call me back. Same thing with Amvets, they all say they'll call me back but I cannot get anyone to talk to me let alone sit down with me. I had to take a step back from this and just not think about it for a while. But I have my first appt. on April 27. What do I need to get from this appointment for my reconsideration/NOD? I dont understand half of the terms listed above. My wife has written a letter that she was going to submit for my reconsideration/NOD. Do i need to take this with me to my appt or just submit straight to the va? The date on my award letter was sep 12, 2015. I can see why people just give up on this. I'm debating whether or not its worth it. I just dont know what to do, so much information i just dont understand.

    I think I understand this. I need to file a NOD even while doing the reconsideration or should I just skip the reconsideration and do the NOD? Or just do both? Thank you so much for all the help. I'm trying to figure out all the terms here still.

    I have never been treated. I've been out for 10 years with about 12 jobs. If there was an issue I'd often just quit. It's been hard to hold down a steady job so I haven't had insurance. I made an appointment once I was approved but it won't be until the end of april. I can upload award letter but like I said above some of the things they said I didn't have were things that we dogs talk about at my exam. Where can I find a c file?

    I recieved the 30% rating on 2/6/2016. How do I find out what level it's on?
  6. I'm trying to get advice on my claim. I recieved 30% ptsd when I recieved my letter a lot of the things we did talk about were stated as things I didn't have to get to 50%. The lady that did my exam almost made me feel worse that I was, even asking if I had a service dog! So I have been trying to get ahold of anyone who could give me guidence, amvets and DAV ive called everyday for two weeks and no one will call me back. I called the va and they advised me to do a reconsideration vs. Appeal. VA advised my wife to send in a letter as well as myself, and also a stressor letter. These were never things I was told before otherwise I would have done them. Is this the right way to go?
