Yet Wings you claim that Im accusing our military (ya know the one that a lot of people are saying they got screwed by) of being like NAZIS, in forcing women to get abortions. That YOU represent the entire forum in your opine of my dilemmma.This appellant was in almost exact years I was, and has exact same complaints.:BUT IM A LIAR WINGS. You give yourself to much credit , with sticking your head in the sand ostrich like, and swearing the whole forum is down there in the sand with you. Jeez, can I get a little love here sister friend! Mystic http://www.va.gov/vetapp/wraper_bva.asp?file=/vetapp98/files1/9801361.txt INTRODUCTION The veteran served on active duty from April 1978 to June 1979. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Regional Office (RO) denied benefits sought, and the veteran appealed. The Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board) remanded the case to the RO in March 1995. Thereafter, the RO granted two of the service connection claims which had been remanded, and now increased rating appeals have since been perfected and are currently before the Board for the two disabilities for which the RO granted service connection. CONTENTIONS OF APPELLANT ON APPEAL The veteran contends that she was raped in service, became pregnant, and was forced to have an abortion against her wishes and beliefs, and that as a result, she began abusing alcohol and developed psychiatric problems. Therefore, she asserts, service connection is warranted for a chronic acquired psychiatric disability. The representative maintains that if this claim is not allowed on the basis of in-service incurrence, it must be remanded to the RO to have the RO address the presumption of soundness on service entrance examination. THIS IS A GREAT POST!
