DK Droughn posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumI currently got out of the USN after serving 12 years active duty from Va Beach, VA in Aug 2009 and came to Sasebo Japan where I am currently residing on my husbands orders. I received paper work from the VA that I needed to get an exam back in Dec through the mail. When I contacted the embassy to schedule the exam they told me that Sasebo is not able to give that kind of exam and that I would not be able to get one unless I go back to the states. I emailed the VA with my findings and received an email back saying that my email was being passed to someone who was being assigned to my claim. Two weeks later I get the settled claim in the mail for 0% disability. This is not justifiable! Does anyone have any ideas what I should do or how I can get the VA to grant me an exam. Thank you for any assistance you can provide me with.
