    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

What Do I Do



When I was deployed, I had a humvee accident, that led me to falling off and hitting my head on the ice ground.

I never told anyone about this incident because my seargent asked me not to, so its not in my medical records.

Ever since then, I've been acting wildly, and i was kicked out for abusing drugs. General discharge under honorable conditions

Within a year of leaving the army, i had a seizure and developed psychosis.

I was treated for the psychosis at the VA, but didn't realize I had a seizure then until a few months ago. I found my medical records for my seizure, and even contacted a a fellow soldier who witnessed the humvee accident

Can i still get my discharge changed to a medical? Do I have any just grounds?

It is a long shot bud. Basically you would have to go back to the Military, let the Med Docs evaluate you there, then you would go thru a Med Board process and so on. I will tell you this bud. I am currently rated thru the VA for TBI, and I was Medically Retired from the Navy last year. Not for TBI though, I was retired for Crohn's and PTSD. So in my opinion, I think that it would be a very long shot bud. Sorry to hear of your troubles. Good luck

I think the advice from Notorious Kelly offers the only chance you have of service connecting your injuries.

Your situation is a perfect example of why military personnel should always seek treatment for medical problems and also get copies of their SMRs prior to discharge. Sounds like your Sergeant was trying to cover his butt rather than looking out for the best interest of his subordinates. He would fit right in as a VA employee. JMO

Good luck to you and thank you for your service.
