If you are an incountry OIF OEF veteran, the new 2010 PTSD regulations will help you.

They relaxed some of the evidentary requirements for  Iraq/Afghanistan veterans.

There is info on this at the top of the PTSD forum here as well as with other posts here.

This link here shows what I mean- the vet was OIF/IOEF but there are pitrfalls to some of these claims:

Vets who do not fall under the 2010 regulations will need

1. A VA MH diagnosis of PTSD

2. Proof of stressor ( CAR, CIB, oand/or PH on DD 214 - will cause VA to conceded evidence of stressor 99% of the time- we had one vet here with the CAR and they denied him for PTSD)

3. They will need  to adequately explain the stressor if not under # 2 to allow the VA to run the stressor through JSRRC (Joint Services Records Research Center) 

Best to give time, date, if possible, details when and where ,and how your MOS put you into the stressor incident.

WE have info here under search on Stressor what is and what isnt---and also Buddy Statement info if you need to get an eye witness account from someone in your unit who also witnessed the stressor.

MST PTSD claims are a little different and they too have info here.

Non combat PTSD claims can succeed as well as combat PTSD claims.

It all depends on one thing....EVIDENCE.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
