Additional Stressor Ltr

Rate this question



I submitted my stressor describing the series of events which I encountered while in "Operation Just Cause" Panama. I was in the AF and didn't have a combat MOS. Nevertheless, I was involved in friendly fire situation and got caught in a fire fight were there were causalities. When I wrote my stressor ltr I didn't mention the actual military units involved because I had no knowledge who they were. Recently, thru Army historians Reports I found out what units were involved. Can I resubmit the stressor ltr indicating who they were. Additionally, I just received a Supplemental Statement of the case, from the RO. In which it states that the stressors couldn't be verified by the USASCURR. (Probally beacause I didn't mention the Units?) Pls advise advise what should I do? I have 60 days to reply to the RO or go to BVA.

Yes Quillo,

You can resubmit any inservice stressor that cause you to have post traumatic stress disorder,this is what you need,if anyone was killed or wounded, you need to give the names and dates of the people that was wounded or killed,if you found out what units was involved,you should be able to get the the names of the people that was wounded of killed, this is what va is looking for something to connect you to this event.If you give them names and dates you have a better chance of getting your claim granted.
