  1. In 2012, I was denied for left knee laxity as a secondary condition to left knee arthritis. I recently came across medical documentation in my file regarding two complaints/incidents of a loose knee while on active duty. I know to get a previous denial opened you would need a supplemental claim form; however can I file left knee laxity on a direct service basis with intent to file? Or do I have to go back through the denied secondary connection route with a supplemental claim? All answers are welcomed.
  2. Good Evening, I have a question in regards to who qualifies as a Gulf War Veteran being able to claim certain issues under the presumptive criteria. I read that in order to have Gulf War Syndrome or to be diagnosed with "un-diagnosed illnesses" related to the Gulf War that you would of had to been part of Desert Shield, Desert Storm etc., and those that served in the Gulf during 1991. How about those that were in the Gulf in 1995. I have a friend that was on the USS Belleau Wood in 1995. They were part of Operation United Shield helping safeguard those exiting Somalia. He was given p

  4. In 2012, I was denied service connected for Necrotizing Myopathy. At the on-site of my disease my private doctors believed my muscle weakness was due to my statin meds. This is the reason the VA turndown my claim. I also submitted the claim under desert storm undiagnosed illness since sat time my condition was being examine to to find the try cause of the illness. After further testing, my diagnosis were Limb Girdle MD (adult onset). The reason I believe the initial, claim may be a CUE because the condition was chronic and therefore as should had fallen under presumptions. Am I correct?

My father has been taking my family since 1994. Now my kids haven't missed a year. It's a great way for those on a budget to take the kids on a great outing.

  7. Hello everyone, I wanted to get some information about how to rebuttal the veteran administration’s decision to rate me as incompetent. The VA rated me for incompetence back in October because of my severe memory loss due to a traumatic brain injury. I feel that I can manage money quite well, in fact much better than most without a tbi. I am young with a large amount of money invested for my age, I own 2 vehicles that are paid off with no debt whatsoever. I manage my money and pay my bills by direct deposit so I don’t have to worry about forgetting any payments and I supervise my accounts with

  9. The CAVC case, Jones vs Shinseki, is instructive. http://www.veteranslawlibrary.com/files/CAVC_cases/2012/Jones_11-2704.pdf This Veteran complained that the Board did not rate him strictly by the criteria. The CAVC stated it plainly: As this Court has made clear, "[t]he Board's consideration of factors which arewhollyoutside the rating criteria provided by the regulations is error as a matter of law." This comes very close to saying that, when the VA rates the Veteran OTHER than by the specified criteria, it is CUE. In this case, the Veteran won a remand, because
