I hope these are what your looking for. If they make sense you'll know.lol Code 37 meant that what was ok'd was Service Connected, Code 41/(a) means that special adaptations to housing is approved or special adaptive housing is approved. And the code 00 meant both disabilities( hand/legs combination) was approved. Hope this makes sense.Mike
