It should help you but what is your 10% for and can you show that you got PTSD from your Service?

You asked if anyone thought that you have a claim and I believe that you do but it needs development, To be successful you need to be getting treatment, have a proper diagnosis of PTSD and be able to target an event or incident that links you to PTSD Stressor while you served.Your documents should help.

To get anything from VA you need to ask them to look at it.

Are you being treated at VA and if so you need to ask your Primary Care Physician for a consult to see Mental Health.

Since you have Combat Action Ribbon your stressor is conceded. You have to get a DX of PTSD in your VA records and then your SSD should help you get at least IU. I think I would do as Pete says and get in treatment for PTSD at the VA. Get some records going and put in your claim for PTSD. Stay in treatment at the VA for the PTSD. Every visit helps document your PTSD. After you get SC'ed for PTSD stay in treatment.

Yes Im in a POST PTSD regular class and a PTSD medics class since i was an Company Aid man in my team. Yes im also be told i have Bi-polar disorder as part of me PTSD treatment. My past 3 GAF socres have been around 39 to 45. i just put into for ptsd and will add IU later after they give me a rating. My VA doctor is working to bring in my other medical isses as part of my lcaim. tinnnitus and loss of hearingin my hear rea, Mingraines, and hypertenion and than IU later to bring up my rating later to 100%

IM trying for

60% PTSD, part of SSA approval for my PTSD scores

10% Tinnnitus

20% Hearing loss

30% Degenergation Disc Disease why i got SSA approval letter for full disability

after the raters give me my rating

VA dont know yet about the last part of my claoim yet

For IU 30%

Agent Orange 10%

Post Tramatiaic Arthiatius 10%

to make the 100% total VA

Now I have to wait for the C & P exam if they ask for it !

I have all my partol reports and lso have no exit exam medical report

Thanks for you input and Bless you .

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
