Are there any other Veterans on here that were at the Pentagon 9/11-9/30 for search and rescue/recovery? I was denied PTSD in 2005 (VA said it wasn't service connected), I appealed it, but never received a letter that the appeal was denied, at that point I said f-it and gave up on the VA. I created an ebenefits account recently (December 2015) and it says that appeal decision (denied) was made in March 2006. I am still having issues. I am reopening the claim for PTSD. I have the VA ROI from 2005 that shows all the VA Psychologist and LCSW notes on file chronic PTSD and GAF:40. I was going to that VA clinic 2004-2006. went back in 2009 to get prescription for nightmares and flashbacks. shit is still not going away.
I was just dx with PTSD and MDD and theyre putting me in the PTSD 3 month program. I worked at the Pentagon but wasnt there on 9/11 but was on 9/12. I lost a friend/shipmate in the Command Center. I see rescue workers are getting denied which is horrible. Anyone that was there helping or working should get approved. My social worker told me about the new criteria for PTSD...is there a nexus here although I wasnt there on the day but the day afterwards looking for my friend.
