  1. So..... I had a VA Dr.'s appointment last week and the doctor brought to my our attention that I have a heart condition. We are all stumped that it was not brought to my attention. The VA Dr. was skimming my med. records when he stumbled across a resident's notes. The notes were off an EKG reading[1] the Dr. said, "Well, it's the resident's fault for not notifying the Cardiology team... but the Cardiology team signed off on it." This data was collected February 2018... It is now February 2019. The Dr. that luckily saw the notes said, you need to get a CT-Scan ASAP. following day there wa
  2. Bring buddy statements and be straight up with them how it has effected your life and your family’s life. “Noli me Tangere”
  3. The DAV rep I was going through is not there anymore... I figured he was ignoring me. I am about to pull my POA and pass it to Nevada Department of Veteran Services. I received a call from Congressmen Amodei's office yesterday (08JUN16) and they are more than helpful, His staff is on point. She suggested I get in contact with NDVS. FYI, I received in the mail the decision last month. I will be appealing the effective date. To all that have commented, Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience via Hadit.com.
  4. I just checked eBenefits and it has me marked at 50% PTSD, my total Disability is 60% now. My battle buddies are telling me that I should be at least 70% also, the DAV rep said that I wouldn't have had a C&P exam if the VA originally verified the stressor (which as far as I understand), they never verified it, and I was denied; to which I appealed and it said stressor not verified. Since it is now verified, this time with a bunch of buddy statements, private practice counseling letter, and my medals with recommendations as proof, would my case be applicable for retroactive pay?
  5. Interested in the outcome of this topic. It's been idle for 7ish years.
  6. C&P Exam this Friday. What should I bring? Should I bring copies of:

    1.Release of information from VA 2004-2006 (which has Psychiatrist: chronic PTSD, LCSW PTSD group notes, VA prescribed PTSD medication list).

    2.Buddy statements & lay statements.

    3. DD Form 2807-1 (evaluation prior to getting out of the army) as evidence I was seeking help for "nightmares stemming from operations at the Pentagon".

    4.Awards and certificates as proof I was at the pentagon 9/11 for search and rescue/recovery.

    5.Private counseling assessments and screenings.

      I don't want to bombard with the examiner, but I don't want to leave anything out.

      Turns out he had those on file... not sure if he had #3 "DD From 2807-1"


  7. I did not find any denial or appeal letter from the VA in our files. The only in service records I have that shows I had concerns (while in service) was my exiting exam (ETS exam) 3 months before I got out of active duty. I went down to the Region VA Office, where I met with a VA rep. I was trying to see what the VA had on file for me for me C-file. I would think that this was on in their files somewhere. but, Murphy's Law, his computer station locked up. He took my Soc.Sec. No. and phone number and said he would call me back. I told him I have a document while in service dated 20040
  8. I have the PTSD exam on 22APR16, is there a way to direct message you? Thanks for the help you are giving all of us veterans.
  9. I searched through our records cabinet at home and still couldn't find the denial letter from 11 years ago. I am pretty sure I did toss it. I was so upset at the VA. BUT.............. I FOUND THIS.......... A copy of my original DD2807-1 (Report of Medical History); in which I was actively seeking help for the nightmares I was having while in service starting after 9/11. The regional medical officer noted that I was having occasional nightmares from operations at the pentagon. This was signed by myself and the officer 3 months before I got out of the army. Please tell me this is
  10. I'll have to hunt down the C-File. Should I ask my DAV representative if he knows where I can get this? I hate to say it, but I think I ripped and burned the denial letter in 2005-2006(?) out of rage. I've tried to request my C-File through ebenifits or MyHealtheVet. I have a copy of the fax (and fax received receipt) I sent to the freedom of information act officer asking for all my files the mil has on me. I'll try to get those files somehow.
  11. We were across the St. I have about 10 buddy statements from other soldiers that were there "next to me", yes, there were a lot of remains/bodies that we came in contact with and moved (I prefer not going into detail out of respect of those that died). I have 2 military awards and a Noble Eagle certificate with facts on it. I did not go to counseling while I was in (my mistake), I was a PFC and was doing my best to fulfill my duty and didn't want to deal with the peer pressure BS. None of us admitted we needed the help when we did/nor did some of us realize that we should have really sought th
  12. Are there any other Veterans on here that were at the Pentagon 9/11-9/30 for search and rescue/recovery? I was denied PTSD in 2005 (VA said it wasn't service connected), I appealed it, but never received a letter that the appeal was denied, at that point I said f-it and gave up on the VA. I created an ebenefits account recently (December 2015) and it says that appeal decision (denied) was made in March 2006. I am still having issues. I am reopening the claim for PTSD. I have the VA ROI from 2005 that shows all the VA Psychologist and LCSW notes on file chronic PTSD and GAF:40. I was going to t
