Fellow Warriors, I was a reservist where i attended bootcamp and school (then transferred to reserves with an Honorable DD214) '89-'90, called to active duty for Desert Shield and deactivated with another honorable DD214 ('90/91) and entered active drilling status. During my 2 week active duty in 1993 i was in a HWMMV that rolled over and had subsequent back surgery/injuries. During monthly drills in 92/93 i was at sick call, with documentation, etc. in 94 i started missing drills and was discharged in 1995 with an admin separation OTH (for missing drills). My initial claim for this back injury was denied due to Character of Service (so service time from 91-95 was not honorable). I am due for an appeal next week, and want to know if i have a shot at getting some VA benefits for this even though my discharge was not Honorable even though the documented injury occurred on active duty training.
PMJ posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumVets, I am a 12 year AD Veteran who recently separated under Honorable conditions with RE-1 code. I filled my quick start compensation claim while I was still in AD. My claim status on eBenefits says to be finalize between APR14-NOV14. My career plans after separation did not go as planned. I contacted the AD and Reserve recruiters to see the possibilities on returning to AD or joining the reserve. I was told neither may happen since I submitted a VA claim. Should I cancel or stop my claim in order to return to AD or joining the reserves? Is there a penalty for doing so? Will I be able to resubmit my claim in case I don't get approved to return to AD or joining the reserve? I just don't want to make a mistake I may regret. My DVA rep told me that based on my claim and evidence provided with my medical record, based on her opinion, I may be granted 50+% disability. Thanks in advance. PMJ
