ZERO Rating Decision received! "The previous denial of service connection for PTSD is confirmed and continued. The evidence does not show a current diagnosed disability". "The previous denial of service connection for schizophrenia, residual type, competent is confirmed and continued. The evidence does not show an event, disease or injury in service. Your service treatment records do not contain complaints, treatment, or diagnosis for this condition. The evidence does not support a change in our prior decision. Therefore we are confirming the previous denial of this claim. Doesn't being WIA with purple heart from grenade booby trap show an event and injury in service? Furthermore, they made no mention of Agent Orange disabilities claimed (hypertension, ischemic heart disease, etc) even after I responded to 8 of their questions on this disability. They did concede 50% schizophrenia NSC as well as INCOMPETENT requiring my brother to engage me as Fiduciary. Also gave him 40% combined for osteoarthritis and muscle strain SC for his wounds in arm, heel, and knee. At least he'll get this money. But I am utterly flabbergasted and discouraged that they would deny him the major PTSD and Schizophrenia claims. Guess I'll be taking to higher authority now --- Berta, Bronco, anyone ?
