  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Hello

Recommended Posts

kornpatch,

Welcome to Hadit. I hope this part of your claim goes well.

VA Disability percentages are granted by 38 CFR - Part 4 - Schedule of Rating Disabilities

along with the medical evidence of record in a claim.

You will find that none of the percentages granted will have anything to do with having

received any medals or awards.

This is not posted to in any way show disrespect for the medals you or others earned by

providing service to our country.

It is just to clarify that medals are not any type of pre-requisite to a grant of

VA SC'd Disability nor does having them help to get a higher percentage granted.

Hello Charlie

Thank you,I was told that this was the best place for questions.Sorry if I came on to strong.I am 60 years old and have been fighting the V A for 39 years. As far as my medals,they are stressors,someting the V A never told me. I have about 5 stressors. I have been trying to get ptsd all these years and the evidence was always there. And of course I FINALLY had a good c&p Dr. If I had more time I could told you about vets that I know well, that have abused the system and gotten more than they deserve.I BELIEVE in taking care of the veterans,and I respect them all.
