Va Form 21-0781A - For Personal Assault

Question

Recommended Posts

Hi Carlie,

I had 2 personal assaults before my MST and was wondering if I should get this form and put in for a claim.

1. was age 12,

2. was 19 and was left for dead.

Carlie, the thing is I forgot my dates, but I can get the News Paper for the second assault, I think by contacting the Trenton, NJ Time News. The family kept the other a secret (age 12) and not sure if any one will open that can of worms up, by writing a statement to put the family name out in the open, this is just the way my family is, so I may have to count this one out. Not sure they will take my statement without someone to back it up. What do you think I should do.

This form has nothing to do with assault prior to active duty.

The form is used for a personal assault such as mst or getting beat up.

Personally I feel it is best to not mix in childhood experiences and keep to

what happened while on active duty.

I know personally of one case where the vet disclosed childhood abuse and the VA denied her claim based on the conclusion that her PTSD evolved from pre-service traumas. I believe she filed an appeal stressing that the in-service assaults exacerbated her PTSD.

I've heard it said in VA waiting rooms and read it many times on the web, etc. When claiming for PTSD, keep your childhood problems out of the conversation.

It's like if you were claiming for a back injury that you sustained from having to lug extreme weight or repetitive lifting while in the service. If you mention that you hurt your back once in high school playing field hockey, the VA will jump on that past injury.

Not saying you should lie about anything, but like Carlie says, your childhood & teenage assaults are not what you are filing a claim for. Leave them out of it.

    • 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.
