YA, RIGHT! size]

You can probably count the number of times the VARO applied this regulation to those being discharged from the service with a mental disorder.

My case in point, why wasn't this regulation used to evaluate my mental disorder, instead of planting a personality disorder around my neck and out right denying my right to benefits?

Maybe if I win, I can use this to figure into my back pay, LOL, that will be the day!

The language of the regulation implies that the military must conceed that the condition was PTSD. If I remember your case correctly the military did just that, but the VA changed the disorder after the fact. You may have a reason for a CUE if that is the case, but it would depend on several factors surrounding your diagnosis, discharge and when the VA got involved.....

You have just got to get an IMO to rebutt the VA personality disorder diagnosis. I don't think there is another way without waiting years. Save you pennies or whatever you have to do to get the exam.
