Another New Guy

Great site! Wish I had been here years ago but here I am now and there has been a ton of useful info here.

One problem I have is that the VSO I am dealing with is making the process sound as if it is going to be a breeze. Im applying

for several service connected disabilities. My back, ears, feet and PTSD. I was in the 1st Gulf War and I wonder sometimes if I

have Gulf War Syndrome. My PTSD is from a couple riots I was in. I recieved an AAM for using my body as shield in one of them

and I have printed several stories that were done over it. The day it happened I went back to smoking cigarettes and once we were back in

the rear for a day or two, I was back to drinking, every single day and pretty much have medicated myself since then. I had not done either

in 2 years. That was 15 years ago and I started reading symptoms to PTSD and I am pretty sure I need to get some help. I have not been

able to keep a job and cant get one right now. My biggest hope since I have not hit 40 yet, is to be able to get some kind of vocational rehab

into less stressful work than sales and have a trade. Im also about to be homeless too but that isnt a huge problem, there is a vet

homeless place nearby.

Anyway, thats my deal. Hope to continue learning more. Muphys law says Im going to wait along while for this but I think it will be worth the trouble...

First of all welcome to Hadit. You have landed at the right place.

We have vets of all branches and conflicts here.

If you have any claim spacific questions feel free to post them. In the meantime, it would be a good idea to obtain copies of everything from Service records to VA treatment records.
