Hey whats up man, I just had mine a couple days ago too. Some similar questions were asked of me..regarding childhood. He even asked if I had ADHD/ADD and if my father drank alcohol. Im curious to know how long its gonna take to hear back...He mentioned the 10% but by that time I had kinda been zoning out..I was sitting there for an hour or so. I think it was fair but I really wish I was better prepared for what the interview consisted of. Kinda feel like the guy was trying to pin my problems on something before the Army...even though I never experienced the stuff til I returned from my first deployment. Anyway sounds like you have a good case..keep me updated I would like to know the timeline between interview and decision.

Just had to post another reply because I read a thread from a couple years ago talking about how the VA docs will try to screw people out of their service-connected disability claim by pinning stuff on social anxieties...like asking if you drank in high school that youve had a problem long before the Army...well nearly eveyr kid drank some in high school. Then asking if my dad drank and describing that alcoholism is hereditary..

Just pisses me off..because the guy seemed nice, but that would definetly describe the strange vibe I couldnt describe. I was naive and assumed he was there just for my best inerest, so I unloaded things that might screw up my claim...Argh.

Just wanted to pass that along because If my award comes back at 10 or 20% Im definetly filing an appeal...

They will try to pin the PTSD on childhood trauma or any event pre-service.

If you have diagnosis of PTSD and a verified stressor -their attempt to do that will usually fail.

If you was a Infantryman and saw combat,you should at least have a combat infantryman badge (CIB) and tha will be your inservice stressor

    • 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...
