Veteran Elgibility?

Question

Hello everyone,

I have found a fellow vet to help. His scenerio is this, he was in the Army National Guard and was injured durring training. His injuries are documented in his medical paperwork. He has never been deployed and he has never been on active duty. He required sugery on his knee and shoulder. His condition is begining to worsen. He is seeing a private doctor that tells him he needs additional surgery. He has been told that he does not qualify for VA benefits since he was not on active duty or deployed. I believe he is recieving false info but I wanted to be sure. He has been denied to be seen at our local VA outpatient clinic for his injuries. So basically I just wondered if he could claim his injuries as thay are permanate. As of right know I am helping him write up his statement to get him in the system.

From the "Federal Benefits For Veterans" Handbook

Reserve and National Guard Chapter 8:

Disability Benefits

VA pays monthly compensation benefits for disabilities incurred or aggravated during active duty and active duty for training as a result of injury or disease, and for disabilities due to injury, heart attack, or stroke that occurred during inactive duty training. For additional information see Chapter 2, “Veterans with Service-Connected Disabilities”.

Did he have a line of duty done for his knee and shoulder? If it was injured while on active duty there should be a LOD for these issues. He can then apply for service connection, and maybe temp 100% under paragraph 30 for surgery dye to sc condition. The he will be able to be seen for treatment at va medical center

The National Guard below to the State. Unless he meets the criteria for active duty or training he has to address his disability through the State.

Thank you for the replys,

The veteran does have a LOD for his shoulder and his knee. I will be meeting with him tomorrow to get things started. We live in Oregon and we are still making calls to determine his elgibility.

Thanks

Pete

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
