My husband passed away 1-7-21 and the death certificate stated Idiopathic interstitial pneumonitis. He had been at a 100% rating for the past 6 years. However the rating was for Schizophrenia Paranoid type. His private doctor wrote a letter stating the pulmonary fibrosis happened in Vietnam. But the VA dr said no there are no service records showing that and declined the claim. I included in the claim that the treatment for pulmonary fibrosis are steroids and the medical records show they had to stop the treatment because he became so agitated on multiple occasions. That was not addressed in their deciison. I need a veterans group to help with the appeal.. Who should I contact?
