Hello All


Recommended Posts

My name is Chris. I currently live in Jolon, CA and work on post at Fort Hunter Liggett for the Department of the Army. I am an Army Reservist with a little over 8 years in service and one deployment. Deployed to Iraq in 09-10 as an 88M-Medium and Heavy wheeled vehicle operator...aka truck driver. Married 3x have 3 children that live in Georgia and my wife has 3 living in Illinois, the 3 youngest are all in college. My wife is disabled with PH, diastolic dysfunction, congestive heart failure and fibromyalgia. She is fighting for SSDI as I am with VA.

I have gain much knowledge from reading the forum here and have so much more to learn. I filed my claim myself on 05/24/2013 and only recently got a VSO. I realize how much help I will need to appeal if I need to as well as to file additional claims. To date I have filed for PTSD with Substance abuse, anxiety and depression on the mental health side. I have also filed for Cervical DJD with spinal stenosis and radiculopathy, torn rotator cuff in both shoulders and plantar fasciitis. I am also about to start the MEB/PEB process as I can no longer wear my ACH due to my neck and no longer wear body armor due to my lower back(have not filed for back yet). In constant pain in neck and back, but worry more about taking care of my wife and kids rather than myself and tend to understate my injuries.

I look forward to continuing to gain knowledge from the group as well as helping anyone with the things I do know. Hoping my "none" changes soon as I am Pending Decision Approval.

Thanks all!
