If the VA diagnoses you with PTSD, that is the first hurdle, but non combat PTSD requires proof of the stressor.

There are ways to prove inservice stressors....there is much info here on how to prove MST PTSD claims under a search.

Claims not involving military sexual trauma might have key info in the Personnel file ( 201 files) and the SMRs.... such as trauma from a thump call, etc etc and can often be proven with SMR treatments records and buddy statements as to the eyewitness accounts of what happened.

We have info here searchable on what is and isnt a stressor and also how Buddy statements should be prepared.

Hello Flipper,

Just be honest and let them know what happened.  I have non combat related PTSD but I was seeing the on base Psychologist and given anti-depressants.  I agree with Berta about the buddy statements from all types, officers, enlisted, sergeants, CO.  You basically have to prove as much as possible that this happened during military service and how it has affected you as far as PTSD.

I would anticipate the stressor is either already confirmed, or you are being afforded an exam from another route, for example being deployed or having a combat badge. 

 

If you have been to Iraq (etc) and claim PTSD, you will get an exam, even if you said on your 0871 that your stressor is witnessing a car crash outside the main gate in Vicenza.

 

If that is not the case, the VA will not (or should not) waste an exam and more time on a claim if the stressor is unverified, or unverifiable.

To Beta & CalBay

I have been seeing a dr at the local va, was diagnosed with ptsd. I have always been truthful. makes life easier . the big problem I have, is is never reported it, because of the situation . so no record .  as for a reliable witness ,  the person doesn't want to get involved .  during my c&p exam ,  the dr. Was very upfront and honest. and suggested a different route that has brought much  success. time will tell. Thank you all

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      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.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      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.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      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.
