    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

70% Ptsd Being Deployed Again

Question

Thats right I was told this weekend at drill I will be going back! I am combined 80% and 70% for PTSD. I'm at a loss for words. I do want to complete the last two years of my six year contract, but with everything going on, I'm just suprised. I just hope they can find something other than kickin down doors for this old Scout to do. On the good side maby this deployment they will not loose my medical record!

Talk to your command pronto. You should not be deployed to a combat zone again with a 70% rating for PTSD. Go see your congressman or whatever you have to do. You don't just want to go along with this. Why are you even in the Reserves with a 80% rating?

I agree, why they would deploy you is beyond me, but the good thing is that I dont think you will make it past the MOB station SRP process. The one thing I have to ask is why do you want to stay in the Army knowing you cant deploy? It is a given nowadays that people should expect to deploy. If you fight to stay in, hopefully you have a good chain of command that will give you a required FOB Job and not one thagt will make you worse.......

I would go to the comapany office after not shaving, or bathing and having peed myself, maybe crying and laughing and talking about how much you suspect all non-followers of your religon. Maybe you get your orders from your dog, he tells you what to do.

If you get as far as the SRP, you can bring it up to the Dr that reviews your deployment packet. But if you don't deploy or can't deploy because of PTSD, then you need to go through an MEB.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
