Just another Denial

Well here's the latest update !  So I check the eBenefit website the other day and found that my claim had been closed as of 10/8/15.  Also, under disability heading it shows "not service connected.  So I email Ted Ebert to seek an explanation.  His reply was,  Please don't be alarmed - the closed claim is really just the closure of our tracking of our response to your request for a copy of your claims folder...  Then he says, " Your regional office recently completed a Statement of the Case - on your appeal - please read it carefully as it contains specific instructions on what happens next.  Ted

So sure enough yesterday I received the Statement of Case.  It appears that I now have the choice to appeal to the Board of Veteran Appeals (BVA)

I wrote Ted back and told him that we were a bit confused and asked him to offer some further clarification.  So now we'll wait to see what he has to say.

Just another day in the life a Vet being drug across some very hot coals !!!
