Filing An Inital Claim From 1965

Question

this is a question on behalf of my dad that i don't know the answer to...

He got out of the Army in 1965, he never filed a claim through the VA for benefits or did any of the paper work of any kind. is it too late for him to do so? can he even get his service medical/dental records from that far back he wants to know? is it even possible for him to get service connected for injuries he had so long ago to things he has going on present day?

thank you

He can still file but he won't get compensation from 1965. The sooner he files the better.

USMC GIRL...Your/your dads initial step should be to go to www.va.gov on the right hand side is "Veterans on Line Application" (VONAPP)

Fill out the application.. The most important step is to file the claim in order for your dads claim to be on record with the VA .

It is not too late for him to file a claim.. VA will be able to get his records(provided they were not shredded)

Please provide more info as to injuries/"things he has going on present day"... is he a Vietnam Vet?

this is kind of a stupid question but who should he go to to get copies of his service medical records and stuff from back then?

Please don't feel like there's a stupid question in the quest for information. You can go to: www.archives.gov and look for the section on veteran records.

    • 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.
