  1. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/waV5t0HPtbM Today we are joined by Thomas Wendel, DAV National area supervisor for West Cost Region. Thomas E. Wendel served in the U. S. Marine Corps from 1983 until 1997. Since 1999, Tom has worked assisting veterans in processing various entitlement claims on the local, state and federal levels; first in Clare County as a county service officer and then when he came to work for the Disabled American Veterans in 2000. In 2008 he was promoted to the position of supervisor of the DAV Service Office in Detroit and later
  2. I am a veteran serving active duty army in Camp Hovey, South Korea from 1994-1995. I had hip injury while working in the motorpool and had to go to Yongsan to go see a bone specialist who then sent me to a civilian hospital in Seoul for a bone scan. The problem is that I tried to put in a claim for hip problems, there is no record of my procedure anywhere in my medical records. As a result, they denied my claim in 1996 and said until I find those records, I'll never have it service-connected. How do I find out what hospital would have been used for that bone scan back then since things have pr
  3. To be short and sweet i found out I am facing an MEB today. i am wondering what i might expect for benefits and how they work. Some ppl say you cant take va compensations if you get 30% MEB or more. others say i will have to pay back my separation pay if i take it ($90,000 maybe). and i really dont know how to judge what money i will make outside the Army. i have bad feet, ankles, knees, hip, back, left shoulder, ptsd, anger issues, migraines, sleep apnea, restles leg sleep disorder, depression. if all of these are 10-20% 140-280 % what do i do?
  4. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/9paX1-FyCaI Today we’re talking about SERVICE CONNECTION. When we talk about service-connecting a medical condition, disease, injury or illness to military service, we are talking about proving the relationship between the two. 1) Direct Service Connection 2) Service Connection by Aggravation 3) Presumptive Service Connection 4) Secondary Service Connection 5) Service Connection due to Injury Caused by Treatment in the VA Healthcare System 6) Special Service Connection Rules for Post-Traumati
  5. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/sTH3p-WwXn0 The way VA defines The word "permanent" slightly differently. For that matter, the word total doesn't mean total when discussing a disability. These are just terms to VA. There really isn't a protected rating. Any rating can be modified by VA at any time, depending on the circumstances. How do you know if your benefit is P & T? What is IU? What is substantially gainful employment? Are there any other eligibility requirements? How is the way VA decides total disability different from other agen
  6. OK I have a strange question I was put up for a med board toward the end of my service before I received my recommendation for my medical discharge I received my honorable discharge Question IM now rated at 40 % at the VA could I retroactively request a medical retirement? IM just really confused what happened . They lost my paper work and I received my discharge before my meb evaluation was put through did I get screwed ? Can I have it changed ? There are some benefits from being retired that I cannot get just being disabled
  7. Hello again everyone. I recently received my records from the National Archives. My case goes all the way back to 1988 when I first filed with VA for back pain and was denied (reason - preexisting condition), and again in 2006 and was denied again (reason - preexisting condition). I was hoping I would have been awarded due to a service aggravated condition. I've attached my MEB and PEB findings from 1988 and was hoping Berta, Asknod, along with any others, could take a look and give an opinion. I had no issues during basic training and AIT. I was injured two weeks prior to the start of active
  8. I'm asking this question to see if anybody else has ever run into this, and this question is pertaining to only one of the conditions I was found unfit for. I was medically discharged out of the Army National Guard through the IDES system. The MEB determined that my degenerative disc disease, "was not incurred while entitled to base pay", did not "exist prior to service" but was "permanently aggravated by service". In the MEB Board summary "this condition could be a result of military duty during deployment, with permanent injury occurring while not on duty status". I should also note that I h
  9. So I'm new, been searching everywhere and it seems most relevant information is on a case by case information. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My situation: Currently active duty less than 4 years of service. In the early stages of getting MEB, package hasn't been sent off yet. In past year there was incident on duty out at sea shots fired, and a death, i wasnt physically harmed but did develop PTSD and depression. The base doc sent me to the VA to get an assessment, VA initally said 30% confirmed PTSD, now in process of discharging me due to PTSD( over 6 months now), im fine with
  10. How's it going everyone? I am currently on Active Duty in the Navy, and going through the long process of a MEB. I have a few questions based on a service connected disability in my left eye. In Sept. 2011, after arriving home from deployment, my son had accidently poked me in my eye with a plastic sandbox shovel, in turn cutting my cornea up. Long story short, the cornea didnt heal properly with bandage lenses. In Feburary 2012, the cornea had opened back up, and the Navy had sent me to a Civilian Opthomoligist in town. From there the doctor performed a PRK surgery, removing the cornea to
  11. Hi everyone This is my first post and I have a lot of issues regarding the VA/Army. Sorry if it seems long i will try and keep it as short and simple.Thanks in advance.
