  1. Long time reader, looking for advice/help - I may have screwed up, but last Sept I filed what I was convinced was a slam-dunk CUE. In short, back in 1992 I was rated at 30% for - "Hypertension was diagnosed from 1983 with persistently high blood pressure reading.... Continuous medication is required for control of blood pressure." ... "[Arthrosclerotic] cardiovascular disease with myocardial infarction, four vessel coronary artery bypass grafting and hypertension." Later ratings in 2008 and 2012 used the same language "coronary artery bypass grafting and hypertension." I in
  2. I'm new to the boards but have been stalking and gleaning all the wonderful information here for quite some time. First I'd like to say that I have searched and I have not found an answer to this question, but if there is another answer out there, please point me in that direction and I apologize for missing it. I recently had my Claim denied by the VA again. Under "Evidence Considered" there is no mention of my SMR or Service Treatment Records, I was wondering if that was normal. The other elephant in the room is that my electronic medical records from my time in the service
  3. Folks: I need advice on a possible service connection or status? I was injured while in the Army with a Tank Main Gun Blast 105mm Accident in 1985 but a Line of Duty was never done or initiated in my case/or for the incident. However, it was reported to the Range Safety Officer who was in charge at the time? I have the SMRs that show I was clearly injured and treated for the injuries for the blast while in service. Consequently, an inexperienced mechanic from the battalion maintenance crew working on my M60 A3 Tank Firing System, caused the accident in the first place. The battalion mai
  4. Folks: Back in Feb 2015, I had what looks like my final CP Exams for this first ever FDC Claim. Consequently, 98%of my SMR evidence was turned in originally with the first claim as well. So, during the exams I handed the SMRS and some other CT/MRI Evidence that I had gotte just after I turned my intial claim in to the Docs and they both said, Do you want this added to your claim and I said.."absolutley!". Anyway, this week I found out that the records were not scanned into the VBMS system and no one at the CBOC or RO can confirn that they received the hard-copies at the RO? When I asked the C
  5. Folks: Recently, I did some C & P exams and a lot of what I said to the examiner, never was considered or mentioned in the exam results? So, I was thinking about submitting a new "statement of support" for my claim to fill in the Gaps for the raters? For instance, on a few of the contentions, even though I had clear SMR evidence for the incident and when/what happened and on the day it happneded, he never mentioned or commented on the actual SMR that was provided to him? Although this is my first claim and an FDC, I'm not sure if I want to delay the entire process again by adding
