TBI and PTSD - VA Report

I would just like to say this one thing.

As an E-7 (PSG) in Germany I was responsible for insuring that my Tanks were secured everynight. I went to the vehicles and insiured all were secured. On several occassions I slipped and fell off of a Tank or two while conducting this inspection, sometimes I fell right on my head from about 5 feet, woke up azed and confused. I was too embarrased to let anyone know that I made such a stupid fall. I saw stars and was dizzy for a few minuted and regained my stability to continue my work.

Some soldiers don't complain or let anyone know about these embarassing situations, "we suck it up". If we complained about a hurt head or what caused it we would have been laughed at. How else would senior NCO's get promoted if we went on sick call to get a iagnosis for such a stupid situation?

Some military people have different reasons for their problems than even you can"t understand, just like I don"t understand some of yours.

My suggestions to you is to try and understand every MOS is not the same and we all go through different situatuions.

I have tried to explain things that happened to me in a polite manner in hopes that people (soldiers) such as my MOS have experienced. You have given blanked responses and not done you reaserchon what makes a soldier in different MOs's. I am a retired 19Z50R8. Take a look at what this Mos entails from Basic to retirement then if you understand, you can make a comment on what I went through and still am. I don't understand all the circumstances surrounding yur situation, but I am co mpassionate to listen and try to be undersatanding.

also, you don"t have all the answers like you post. Keep it simple and don"t pre-jude just based on your military experience. Ifyou want to help then try reading between the lines or do some research on each MOS, then make a helpfull comment.Not everyone is as intelligent as you perceive yourself to be.

    • 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...
