Marc14 posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research Forum,I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.
i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.
Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.
insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.
VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.
Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances? I live in Upstate New York.
I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

Renegade87 posted a question in Appealing Your Veterans Compensation Disability Claims NOD, DRO, BVA, USCAVC,My appeal was granted and closed on November 9. I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great! My question is this: How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great. Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
Edit: This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
