USAF-Vet posted a question in Eligibility - Veterans Compensation Benefit ClaimsI have been reading along for several years now. Finally managed to join after weeks of trying to register. I was AD USAF 1986-1990 then became dependent until present. I have been engaged in a conflict with the Oakland regional office over my military medical records. We hand carried records from station to station until everything was scanned prior to our return from the UK in 2007. Now I only have dependent records from 2004 to present with my local base medical center and the VA archive just sent a CD to my congressman that only has the last 2 years of medical records ! They included all kinds of documentation regarding my enlistment, separation, reserve service forms etc. NO MEDICAL records. When I called, they assured me my active duty medical files were at the archive and were already scanned. If what they sent is are the only records they have on me, I am totally SCREWED since I can't show service connection for any of the things I'm dealing with. Is there anything I can do? I am going to call the archive yet again on Monday as well as my DAV rep and congressman's aid. How can 29 years of medical care vanish like this?
