    employment 2.jpeg

Ptsd C&p Exam?

Question

I spoke wih an Attorney and he tells me if the Evidence shows 'boots on the ground' in a Combat Zone and the sressor is an Organized documented Military Offensive then I may not need a C&P. My DD214 shows these items.

The VA psyciatrist wrote in my file about the stressor and connected it to the Viet Nam experience I had in 1970. The DD214 has 'Operation Rockcrusher' written on it with the date. I was in Field Artillary for the entire year in RVN as shown by my DD214.

Is this enough Evidence?

Does taking a long time to process maybe mean a good outcome?

Are they usually quick when they Deny a claim?

No other 'Evidence was sent as suggested by my Representative. Now I am worried after reading all the posts on here.

Since my VVA Representative is no longer with them I am having doubts about what was sent as 'Evidence'.

He said my DD214 shows that I was in Combat, and my VA Psyc diagnosed me with PTSD with the SC to 'Operation Rockcrusher' in RVN.

It has been 10 months on my FDC and I am at 'Review of Evidence' and it seems to have stalled there.

Sorry to keep bugging you guys.....

VA will 99% of time do a C&P for PTSD. I spent 5 years in Iraq and Afghanistan and I could not count how many missions or combat I was involved in. I had initial C&P and I will have to have another one here soon as I submitted an FDC for increases. Good luck and just wait and see what happens. My FDC is going on 4 months and they have not even started to work on my claim.

Thank you for the reply, Nice to have folks with experiance to talk to.

Without getting into the specifics, it was not the Mission or Combat that continues to haunt me. It was before and afterwards that causes my nightmares and all the bad crap I feel. Some disgusting immoral things occured that I should have tried to stop others from doing. I should have been more forceful in my warning when on guard duty on one night. I turned down a Purple Heart because I was only shot in the thumb. I thought it would be a disgrace to take one with my fellow Soldiers really hurt.

I still don't want one now..so no issue there.

I wake up screeming and I fight so hard when I sleep that I broke both my big toes kicking the wall in the middle of the night. Last time was at my son's house in my Grandson's room. I felt terrible for bleeding all over the place. Both feet are permanantly damaged due to this. My poor Dog won't even try to get in bed with me, poor little guy thinks I kicked him on purpose. Wife sleeps in another room too.

You may need to discuss the disgusting, immoral things if you have a c&p exam, so don't hold back. You should tell the exam doctor you were ok before Nam and your problems all related to your Nam experience. You should have got that PH because that would make your PTSD claim a slam/dunk. You could still get it via BCMR, maybe. You have proof of your GSW in your SMR's?

GSW=gunshot wound, SMR's= your service medical records, PH=Purple Heart, BCMR= Board for Correction of medical records. I have little stuff in my records about different offensives my unit was in while I was in Nam. I was in a combat aviation unit.

    • 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.
