Ptsd Appeal Questions


I first filed my claim for PTSD in Oct. 2007 along with other items. It was denied along with some of the others. then the rest goes like this for the PTSD:

05/30/2008Local VA Office Decision RO 06/01/2009Notice of Disagreement (NOD) RO 06/09/2009Appeal Pending BVA 11/13/2009Statement of the Case (SOC) RO 11/20/2009Substantive Appeal (Form 9) So then the new regs came out and I just was recently told I needed to send in something stating that I wanted a re-review of my information due to the new regs.

I called the VA yesterday and they said that someone (a rater) is what I was told had looked at the file and I should be receiving a SSOC by the end of the month but that is all he would tell me.

Long story short I was denied because I was a female, yes I can say that because more or less that is what I was told in 2008, and they said I couldn't prove my PTSD was combat related. I was thrown out of my bed my an RPG.. I was at ABU Ghraib for a year (the year after all the abuse came out) so we bore the wrath of their true hatred with the news came out and were bombed on a daily basis and at that time in the war had two of the deadliest months during that year while I was there. I had given them buddy statements have given them news articles about it, diagnosed by outside the VA by 2 different docs as well as by the VA and I am still currently being treated by the VA

Will the SSOC be a good thing? as before I requested the re-review I was waiting on a video hearing since November 2009.... What should I expect?

    • 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.
