Nice To Meet Everyone

Recommended Posts

My name is Joe and I'm a Shield/Storm Army Veteran. I served with the 1st Cavalry Division, HHC 2/5 CAV as a 77F. E-4.

I don't know much about the VA or it's processes but filed a back claim in 2002 and was awarded 10% in 2003. I filed a claim for sleep problems and pain and they awarded me 40% for fiber myalgia and 30% for PTSD in Jan this year.

I have been in and out of jobs over the years due to my inability to cope. Loner here.

I've recently sought out treatment because I feel I have no other choice.

Nice meeting everyone and I appreciate all that the fine people of the US do to help each other.
