  1. Thank you all for your advice. It looks like 90-10 in favor of going to these contractors. I forgot to mention, I have new and full executed DBQs for PSTD, Ankle/Feet, and Spine by specialists in those fields. Does this affect your advice in any way? Thanks! Lighthouse
  2. I submitted a follow on claim four years after my initial claim for worsening conditions. I got a notification (accidentally) from QTM to schedule two C&P exams about 30 miles in opposite directions. I live in NYC. Being an 8D, I checked out the doctors.

That was five years ago. As of last week, OPM is disallowing my time in the military. The only time they will consider, is when a campaign or badge was involved e.g. Southwest Asia, and others. My dd214 shows these campaigns without dates. OPM wants the exact dates for each. The VA rated me at 90% in 2016. I retired without a medical or dental exam. I have to provide proof to OPM my disability was not
