Ets Physical

Question

1. For every member of the military ETSing or retiring. You will be given a final out physical. At that physical tell them about every ache, pain, concern, etc. This is the last chance for the military member to officially document medical problems, thereby making the issue in-service! Tell them about rashes, hair loss, scratches, scrapes, itchy ass cheeks…EVERYTHING!...LAST CHANCE!

OK, I have many problems associated with the gulf war that I did not go on sick call for, but they are all mentioned in my ETS physical. Are you saying that even if I didn't go on sick call for something I can use my ETS physical as evidence for a claim?

Yes, if they noted conditions on your ETS physical then it could be SC'ed, especially if you have had treatment since.

If you can show that you have been getting continuous treatment for conditions noted on your ETS physical then I think you are good to go on being able to service connect them. You have to have a medical statement saying that the condition you suffer from now is related to the condition noted on ETS. Those are the three legs of a disability claim with the VA. You had it in service. You have it now and it is related to your service.

Then you can't use your ETS physical, as evidence, and will need to rely on any other evidence of record.

    • 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.
