Question

I called and talked to Peggy today she said WildBill's PTSD and IU claim had been reviewed to go to the raters. His Nehmer claim went to the rater on May 12th. Maybe we will get some answers. Bill is 70% for prostate cancer and radiation proctitis. On his PTSD exam the examiner said:

Axis I : Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, not otherwise specified.

Axis II: Deferred

Axis III: Per Veteran's report hypertension high cholersterol, IHD, prostate cancer, radiation proctitis, joint pain in knees and shoulders.

Axis IV: Relationship problems, unemployment.

Axis V: A global assessment of functionment score of 54

In terms of his social adaptability and interactions with others, this appears to be moderately to considerably impaired. Overall I would estimate his level of disability to be in the moderate to considerable range and this Veteran appears capable of handling his own funds.

He has been seen by two different VA psychiatrist for about five years. Any body have any ideas what they might rate him? He is not working. He was fired last July. He got fired from his job before that. If he had not owned his on business for 35 years, we never would have made it! He really is a nice guy. You just have to know when not to mess with Bill, hence the WildBill. Thanks for any help.

I've always said I would not take anything for what my two years in the Army taught me, but I sure as hell wouldn't do them again for ANYBODY. Vietnam changed my life forever....

Wild guess for Wild Bill.

PTSD 30 - 50 percent hopefully IU will also be granted with P&T status.

Carlie passed away in November 2015 she is missed.

Wild Bill I would say Carlie is right on, the key is the IU. If they rate you IU P&T you will get the 100% rated financial benefit, from there you should go to Social Security and put in the claim for disability income, with your VA rating of IU P&T you are eligible. Hey, Thanks for your service!!

nothing which is more important than they're own personal safety,

is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free,

unless made and kept so by the exertions of better persons

than himself.
