Great info. Thank you.
Does the vet center have someone there who can help you file a claim for PTSD? Don't know. A VSO is helping me. Just did not know to file as MST with PTSD or PTSD.
"Both the female and male soldiers were reduced in rank and given other than honorable discharges a month or two after I was there."
Will the documentation under FOIA you seek specifically identify you as a victim of this harassment? Unknown. It should show that she asked me to kill someone and I reported it to CID. I don't believe the harassment was ever recorded. I was just reassigned.
" After the second time I went to CID and wore a wire twice. "
I would assume the wire evidence was on tape for the CID, and if so this should definitely be specified under the FOIA for release. Thank you.
"As I was getting out in 1999 I learned that she had asked other people in the unit to kill me. I was seen at a Vet center into 2000."
Have you made any attempt to find any inservice buddys in your unit who could support that with a buddy statement? The guy who told had just PCS from the company her friends were in. He happened to be talking about the incident and did not realize who I was. The only buddy statement I have was from a buddy who in my unit on my return from Brigade HQ. He knew of the incident and witnessed the harassment from my chain of command.
Have you googled the names of the two people who were giving an OTH? Not that we need the names here- but they might have a history of bad acts since they were booted out. No. I did check her when I got out to make sure she was not near me.
Can I assume they were in the Army up to 1999-? No. They were discharged in 1996. Incident was 1995.
Can you tell me what unit the female soldier was in? * A Co. 32nd Signal Battalion, 22 Sig Brigade. Kelly Barracks Darmdstadt GE. I was also in A co till they moved me to B Co.
This was certainly a traumatic experience. Just the fact alone that she asked you to kill someone (was that on the wire and taped? ) and then asks others to kill you is horrific. Her asking me was.
Do you rememeber any of the names of individuals that she asked that of? No. They were not in my circle of friends. If I had a unit photo of 95 or 96 maybe.
* It is a long shot but maybe there is a BVA decision that would reflect a female OTH veteran ,in this same unit she was in, that might also reflect legal info that you could use in your claim, who was trying to get VA benefits. Could be.
I am willing to search the BVA web site for anything after 1999 that might possible help. I would need the name of the Unit she was in and I assume she was discharged in 1999? Thank you. Unit is above. Discharged in 1996.
But the best thing to do is to try to acquire the info you asked for under FOIA. I will.
Is any of this recorded in your military personnel file , in a way that helps prove what happened? Still awaiting arrival. I have asked from archives.
I had a horrible experience many years ago. Someone attacked me viciously on the internet.
I found out who they were and where they lived and then,through my internet searches I found they were already involved in a court case unrelated to my problem with them.
I was able to give testimony against them,to the court, by contacting the plaintiff's lawyer and I provided documentation of the things they said about me on line.
I was able to follow the entire case on line, by paying for links to each hearing.I realized they had hurt many others as well and the outcome of that case was
Wonderful.!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry to hear and glad for the outcome.
So I know how it feels to be innocently targeted and victimized unfairly by someone and these people can be very dangerous.
But I also know that research can reveal often a series of prior bad acts, that can prove ,innocent targeted people are not simply telling a personal story,...... they are telling the truth. ( such as the Me Too movement).
I hope you find the evidence you need, and it might take some time, but if you file a claim for PTSD due to military trauma, you will need to prove what happened because the VA's Duty to Assist is very limited and we claimants have to do most of the leg work ourselves, when it comes to evidence. So, file as military trauma with PTSD as secondary?
