1946 Decision Cued And Claim Was Granted

Guest Berta




1. The unappealed January 1946 rating action denying service

connection for residuals of injury of the right 4th (ring)

finger, then consisting of amputation at the proximal

interphalangeal joint, was final as to the evidence then

considered. Veterans Regulation No. 2(a), pt. II, par.

III; VA Regulation 1008 (effective 25 January 1936 to

31 December 1957); 38 U.S.C.A. §§ 1110, 1153 (West 1991);

38 C.F.R. § 3.306 (1999).

2. New and material evidence consisting of previously-

unconsidered SMRs received from the service department in

June 1948 shows that the veteran's pre-service residuals

of injury of the right ring finger were aggravated by

wartime service. 38 U.S.C.A. §§ 1110, 1153 (West 1991);

38 C.F.R. §§ 3.156©, 3.306, 3.400(q)(2), and Part 4

(1999). "

I think we had a recent CUE question here that was similiar-

and I think I posted the 38 CFR 3.306 reg as the one they broke-

(or maybe it was an email vet???)

In any event -there are additional regs above there in the BVA decision that caused:


Service connection for amputation of the right 4th (ring)

finger is granted."

In essense the vet filed a CUE but the claim was granted here without granting the CUE-

so he got what he wanted from an old 1946 decision he never appealed-

In this type of case- the BVA did not find 'error'- but found the fact that newly discovered SMRs would have granted the old claim-interesting read.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
