ptsd
Ebenefits says I'm SC non-combat PTSD. My VSO says I'm SC Combat and Non-Combat PTSD.

Question

Does that mean all my stressors verified?

It probably makes no difference if it was combat or non combat.  When you go to the grocery store and buy a gallon of milk, they probably wont ask, "Did you earn this money with PTSD from combat, or was it regular earnings from a job?"

Remember, the VA wont award you a set of benefits for non combat PTSD and another set for combat PTSD, and another set for MDD.  You get paid for ONE set of symptoms regardless.  

So, if you are paid for combat PTSD and get awarded non combat, it wont increase your compenstion.  After you are SC, then its all about SYMPTOMS, and, to repeat, you dont get paid for a set of symptoms for PTSD and the same symptoms ALSO for MDD.  

We can not interpret your award letter unless you post it...right now we are interpreting your interpretation of your letter and our interpretations wont be any better than your interpretations.
