Sorry For Bugging



Good Morning,

Sorry for bugging you all but my claim is very important to me. Does any one know of any other items that would help my VA appeal case. It is in the state of final appeal and I am awaiting a date for my hearing the lovely Air Force Lost my medical records. I have searched everywhere. What else can I do. Anything will help. Has anyone done any research or heard of any cases being approved without medical records.

If they lost your Medical Records that have to make an effort to reconstruct them for you. I am not sure where you are have you separated and made a claim with VA and if so is the claim at the rater or BVA?

Being that THEY have lost your records they are supposed

to be a bit more sympethetic and lenient in adjudicating your


Also, should something become SC'd now and THEY happen to

locate your records at a later date - then you can re-open for

EED of grant for SC.

Hope this helps a vet.

May I ask what all the USAF has done to find your medical records? What base were they lost at? They really aren't lost....someone has misplaced them.

You don't have to answer this if you don't want to....but if you have both medical records as well as mental health records....those are kept separate and it would be highly unlikely that both would be lost.

If you have dental records...get a copy of those. Get a copy of anything you can.

File a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) Request for the records that are missing. This will really make them search. I used to be a FOIA manager...trust me, no FOIA manager wants to say that someone's medical records are lost! Heads will roll!!!
