  1. Roger. We did ask for a senior level reviewer. I'm guessing that just pisses them off. I guess I have about 50 more days to see what happens. Then I'll find a lawyer to move forward.
  2. the original from when I got out in 2002? Or the original that I put in a few months ago and they denied, and now I'm asking for a HLR? I'm assuming here in Arizona? Thats were I'm located and registered at this VA.
  3. Bear in mind this is an increase request with a request for secondary issues due to the already rated problem. So they know the original issue is at least valid. My battle buddies/shipmates all used the same format to submit, they are all now sitting at 100%, and I'm fighting with them for not doing their job. Lol.

  7. I'm in the HLR process now. They flatly denied my original claim without using my DBQs I sent in and in the denial letter, they never mentioned the DBQs either. I'm in about day 70 so far. Yesterday the VSO said the status is "ready for a decision" This is my first time really dealing with this. When I got out of the Navy in 2002, about 6 months later I got a letter saying I was 40% rated and I'd get X dollars per month. I never did a thing. I realized that the DAV officer that reviewed my medical records must have submitted on my behalf. Now, I'm going after an increase with s
