I am so glad you had what appears to be a good C & P exam result.for the TBI .

"4x unconscious during 3 combat tour...."

And they rated you "0" ???? ridiculous but then again VA rates TBIs for residuals and there are plenty of them....

It pays for TBI vets to read the TBI forum here and the TBI criteria has changed in the past few years as VA learned more and more about the affects of TBI..

"I took bullet to the chest, leg, ied, and 4x unconscious during 3 combat tour...."

Do you have ratable scars or any ratable residuals from the GSW?

I sure assume the PH is on your DD214 but then again ,the Mil makes DD 214 errors.

Corrections to a DD 214 can be made via a DD 149 form.The link is here at hadit somewhere to the form (and at the VA web site too)

Wow that's fast you already got a new C&P exam!

Just be aware that they might combine your PTSD and TBI rating.

On the exam sheet there is a question that says "can you separate the effects of the TBI"? If the examiner marks no that they cannot separate the effects then technically a TBI rating is supposed to be combined with any mental health ratings. In the past they weren't doing this so much but the regulations say they are supposed to.

Hope things go your way!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

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