Frank, do you have any records or anything that shows that you received Hazardous Duty Pay that may help you in your claim?

yes i do the hospital records prove that , and in 2003, i found a rating tos/c me to re open claim get files from air force navy, but you missed my point , because of the fact i have those records,but va has stated on all my records and sms,records are burned in fire,iam 100% air force ,100% navy,and 100% from rading of 1992 and c/p exam,but the point is anyone can file a appeal up to 1973, if va states no records found, burnted in fire, that i can prove them wrong, there is a class suit action,on this, i just wanted veterans to know ,va lied to them,and i would file a appeal,now if va has stated burnted in fire. frank

Dear Frank,

In-patient military medical records are kept with the 'treating military facility' for years before they are retired to NPRC (St Louis). These in-patient records are normally stored in a location separate from your out-patient, clinic SMR's . . .

However, "reasonable minds" could easily infer - that the VA did in fact (at some point in time) search for your in-patient medical records because you filed a VA Claim that put that specific evidence at issue!

See note (*) below for information about reconstructing some of the "burned" SMR'S. ~Wings

Frank, You were one of the first Air Force members! Prior to the US Air Force being established (1947), the US Army Air Forces flew the missions. Were you ever in the Army Air Forces ??

SEE ALSO

Alternate Record Sources: When proof of military service is needed, NPRC (MPR) attempts to reconstruct certain basic service data from alternate sources. NPRC (MPR) has identified many of these sources, but each contains only limited military service information. They are utilized to piece together (reconstruct) basic service data. LINK http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/military-...rd-sources.html

*Medical-Related Alternate Records. In 1988, a collection of computer tapes containing ten million hospital/treatment facility admission records was transferred to NPRC (MPR). These records, originally created by the U.S. Army Surgeon General's Office (SGO), were discovered by the National Academy of Sciences and offered to the National Archives for use by NPRC (MPR). The source records existed in a computer code format and required extensive analysis to interpret the code into English. Between 1988-1990, NPRC (MPR) was able to salvage 7.8 million records of individual admissions for use as a major supplement to other smaller sources of medical information.

The subjects of the records were active duty Army and Army Air Corps personnel in service between 1942 to 1945. In addition, active duty Army personnel who served between 1950 and 1954 and a limited number of Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and military cadet personnel for the same period (about 5% of the 1950-54 file) are included.

The admissions records are not specific or detailed medical documents, but summarized information indexed by military service number. They contain limited medical treatment information, but diagnosis, type of operation, and dates/places of treatment or hospitalization are frequently included. Although no names are shown, patients are identified by military service number and certain personal data including age, race, sex and place of birth. THESE RECORDS ARE NOT DUPLICATES OF THE ORIGINAL MEDICAL TREATMENT FILES LOST IN THE 1973 FIRE AT NPRC (MPR). They were created using data sampling techniques for statistical purposes. Therefore, the listings are not complete and many admissions were skipped during the sampling process. Nevertheless, the information is useful as proof to support certain benefit claims.

hi wings yes i am now anfrnkie, i got a new computer i poster under old computer today as frank, when i tried to change over to hadit,for some reason would not let me get on as frank,so i had to change, as soon as i set up e-mail i will post it,thank god you guys found me,i was going to post a new topic on who i am,

OK, Glad we got the same guy, another new member with 52 appeals would put me over the edge lol (laughing out loud)!

Frank, You discovered your in-patient SMR's in 2003, so there's no way of knowing exactly WHEN that evidence made it to your file. Is there some kind od date-stamp on it? ~Wings

P.S. I don't understand why you are saying 100% AF, 100% Navy, 100% rating of 1992. Are you saying you were 100% DISABLED or 100% Service-Connected??? My understanding is that you were 100% SC in the late 90's for PTSD???

  • question-001.jpeg

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
