I downloaded and read quite a bit of this huge file.

A couple of suggestions:

1. Pick out one or two of the most serious contentions to go after instead of 20 as I think it may make a happier rater. You can always add more later.

2. From what I read in most cases, the VA needs new and compelling medical evidence of your contentions; so get new medical evidence.

3. Make sure you go to their scheduled medical appointments. There was a mentioning of a missed appointment which is "Claim Suicide" giving grounds to the VA for denial of your claim.

Good luck in the future.

That was from a while back that they keep pointing out for some reason. Even though I have not missed ANY appointments this year.

Seems like a in service injury, sickness, or like claimed symptoms are missing in your SMR's.

You probably are suffering from the claimed conditions, but an initial in service incident seems to be missing in most of the claims.

I agree with the guys above bud. You need some detailed medical evidence. As you and most know on here, I have been granted close to 30 conditions, over the last 2 years with 4 FDCs, and have had multiple conditions Re Evaluated, yet been continued or increased. What I am saying is that most of those conditions have been denied more then once. I think in my case I over whelmed the VA system and raters at first with so many disabilities filed. With the initial claim I was granted 80% on a handful of conditions and denied the rest. I was upset, pissed, disappointed, whatever you want to call it. So I listened to the good folks on here like Carlie, Berta and other people, cant remember off hand. I decided to focus each claim with a handful of conditions. Well 18 months later all granted but a few, and processes have been a lot smoother and all claims have been completed in 4-6 months. Good luck bud, try to calm down and re gather your self. Good luck

I focused on the PTSD claim:

They stated the stressors were unverified. I assume they mean they did not have enough details to run the stressors through JSRRC (Joint Services Records Research Center)

But they also seemed to question if these were stressors related to the new PTSD criteria, as to 'fear of hostile activity'.

The fact that a VA MH professional diagnoses a vet with PTSD, and who might even say it is due to their service, means nothing to VA (unless the CAB,CIB, or PH is on the veteran's DD 214)
because a VA MH doctor is not providing an eye witness account , as a buddy statement can do,..

That however can happen and happened to my husband in 1983.
He went to the Newark VA for a small business loan , but came out with a PTSD diagnosis as well as ( I already rattled that story all off here, a confirmation of one of his stressors by the Chief psychiatrist there who had also been in Vietnam treating veterans from the outcome of this same horrible 'volunteer mission'
and only he and the Marines who volunteered knew the details. Someone the same at the VAMC wrote the claim and within a few months he got a award letter for PTSD.

but when he went into the PTSD 21 day inhouse many years later he had to write a stressor letter.....It took him a whole week. He had places and dates and names, just didnt want to deal with it (1965- 66 Danang)


Maybe these links will help.







He had many stressors listed there. They made him file the form out as to a month by month account in Vietnam.

I could see if any of them needed verification, that many stood out, but VA never asked for more details.

It only takes one stressor to prove a PTSD stressor happened. It might not be the most terrible thing that happened to you,, but if it is the most provable, it is good to use that as a main stressor, because with details, JSRRC can verify it..
