  1. Greetings all, I started a new thread because I felt this topic was a separate issue from my last post, but was a factor regardless. I will try to keep it brief. I was PEB/MEB'd from the USAF in Minot, ND on Nov. 2007 for DDD and Osteoarthritis (four herniated/bulging discs). The week prior to separation, I was mandated to attend a TAP Briefing (Transition Assistant Program), where a Veteran Affairs Rep briefed us on the importance of filing a claim, and had us fill out from 21-526. They indicated that we should receive a phone-call regarding our C&P Exam in approx 30 days. And sure enough, on December 22, 2007, I received such a call from the Fargo VAMC calling to schedule me for my CP&E. However, I had already returned to my Home of Record (Dallas), and they informed me that my claim/records would be transferred to the Dallas VAMC, and that I should call the Dallas VAMC in 30-45 days if I do not receive a call. 47 days pass, and I call the Dallas VAMC. No record of me, at all. So I call the Fargo VARO and VAMC. Also no record. The Waco VARO had no idea where my C-File was, and I was instructed to file another claim. So on March 26, 2008, I filed a claim with Hood County VA Rep in Granbury, Tx. Did the mandatory wait, checked back, NOTHING. This continued a few more times until I gave up and just used my Private Insurance for all future MRI/Treatment of my conditions. I made so many mistakes in the beginning, got apathetic towards the middle, and now I'm down right pissed when I should have been years earlier. Complacency is Deadly. So my question is, would it be possible, or even worthwhile, to request Special Handling as my issues fell squarely in the timeline of Shreddergate? The VA has ZERO record of me from 2007-2012. No claims, calls, or STRs prior to Jan. 3rd, 2012.
