Details of my quest for Disability

Just a little history...

I originally filed my claim on June 5, 2013.  It was denied July 9, 2014.  I sent in the NOD requesting appeal on October 3, 2014.  I’d like to note that it was a VA doctor that suggested I file for disability.

I'm not going to go into everything that has happened so far.  I'm sure many of you have already been through it. 

I will add one last comment before moving on.  One of my disagreements with the VA disability is based on an incident that occured while on manuevers.  I was run over by a fuel truck while sleeping and had to be air lifted out.  This was no minor incident.  Even so, the VA refused to consider this when reviewing my claim because they had no records of this even happening.  I have since found a record in my personal files that I kept for all these years that states that I was run over by the fuel truck.  I mailed this document into disability.  So now I'm interested to see what they do with that fact.

Anyway, I'm going to start writing from this point forward, because this is were I begin to fight back.
