Question

Well I have been trying to get some relief from the VA since 1970 after getting out of the army I went to the VA hospital in LA (Sawettle) for severe headaches and was given a blue and white ID card at the time ( was never told that this was not a VA medical care card ) never saw a doctor only a nurse and was given slepping pills and darvon for pain I recieved care in this fashion for a couple years before I was informed that the program I was in had been cancaled and would recieve info for a new program with in a month this never happened and when I questioned the VA was given the run around. In 1984 I again went to the VA in Reno for headaches and agian was given a blue/white ID card and drugs for the problem while there got a exam related to Agent Orange and was placed in the registry again nothing came of the headaches applied for care in 1998 and was given a Purple/White ID card group 7 and was given care for a severe ear ache at the time asked about the headaches and was given no info fially I was told by a nurse at the facility I use to see the area VSO and I did so appling for service connection for several thing that happened durring my service TBI being one of them. I recived Service connection for hearing/tinnitus broken ankle stomch would and scars related to B40 meets bunker with me inside, close proxcimity to the ammo dump explosion at Long Bihn 4 Feb 67 six days in 93rd evac for amnisea and blast related head trauma, the TBI was denied as there was no record of being treated for the problem while in the military. well I fianally got my med records and big as life there was the treatment records for secondary items related to blast trauma and I have reopened the case and have had three C&P related to TBI the past two years with the final one being Oct 2010 So I will see how this works out but it has been an uphill batle for years

"I have seem a neuropchy for a new C&P in Oct this year waiting for there reply thank you "

You can ask them by mail to send you a copy of the C & P exam to give you a leg up on their decision.

Carlie is right-that regulation might help you a lot.

It is so disheartening to see evidence of the piss poor work the VA can do regarding claims like yours.

This is why we MUST continue the fight until we succeed.

The VA in the late 60's and 70's was a hell hole. You could not even get treatment unless you were a drunk or service connected for a certain issue. The decisions that came out of the VA in those days should make the government blush. I am sure if you persist with your claims you will win. You just have to out live them.

    • 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.
