    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?”

    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

Ptsd Claim



I filled a claim for PTSD in March 06. A few months later they sent me a request for stressor letter and I sent them 3 which could easily researched and verified. I have a total of 10 stressor letters, I am waiting on buddy statements for a couple of them. The others they will not be able to verify as they were from working as a reserve police officer while I was on active duty. My service record documents document I worked as a reserve police officer and deputy sheriff so they will just have to take my word for those stressors that the military cant verify.

A month ago one of the Physciatrist told me I exhibited signs of PTSD. A consult was put in for me and I went to the PCT Clinic on wednesday and had a four hour interview by two doctors which went very well. Remmeber this was not a C&P exam so there was no hostility by a examiner. Yesterday I saw a new Physchiatrist (the replacement for the one that assaulted me). He spoke as if he was sure I had PTSD and even explained to me what caused it and told me after being in law enforcement for 20 years I would never recover completley from it, and I will always be the way I am. :)

So now I am just waiting for the PTSD C&P Exam, which it seems to me that I will have a diagnosis of PTSD way before this C&P ever occurs. SO I THINK I HAVE WON THIS BATTLE :)

My VSO told me I would never win a PTSD Claim. B) same VSO who made this statement

"My VSO told me I would never win a PTSD Claim"

I never listen to negatives---

If you have the diagnosis and can prove it is related to your service-by verified stressor---

I cannot imagine why a VSO would say something like this to you or to any veteran.
