It will be very hard to prove you were denied medical treatment while on active duty. In fact the first question will be what did your chain of command do! While leaders play with a lot of things, there aren’t many that would mess with a Soldiers right to seek medical treatment, nor would they allow a doctor to ignore your request. Bottom line is that there are more physicians than the one who rejected you. If you can prove you fought for care by informing your COC then go for it, names, statements etc. you are your best advocate. Good luck.

CSM, that's where I was a stupid PFC, I had leadership where alot of them didn't care due to the fact I was already getting out. I wasn't explained anything by my leadership and didn't know who to even really go to about it. I did have an opportunity to talk to JAG during the process and I regret not speaking up then.

Well, never quit. You may be able to find people on Social Media and ask for a letter of reference to the situation. Good luck. PFC Jared Franzmann

Every human being, regardless of they're affiliation deserve treatment. I think I would report this to th IG and my congressman. Active duty personnel are taken seriously by Congress. Take names and report them. Perhaps by denying someone treatment, that particular doctor has ignored his responsibilities as a doctor to preserve life. Perhaps that doctor should be banned from practicing. I know of several physicians working within the VA who are unethical.

If you are looking for a disability rating contact your county Veterans Service Officer. They can help get a claim started. You can also use wounded warriors project as well as other Veterans organizations to help with a claim. If your medical records do not address the issue you are claiming you can get a VA physician to write a nexus letter. You can also have friends write buddy letters and you, yourself, should also document your injuries as well as your experience with the TMC. Hope that helps.

Sgt, the VA won't give me a rating for my shoulder because of not having a diagnosis. I do have a rating of 0% for both of my ankles. The VSO said I need a diagnosis before trying again for my shoulder and I've not been granted a reevaluation for my ankles since I put that in last year. What exactly is a nexus letter, I've never heard of one?

PFC Jared Franzmann VA Form 21-4138.
Get two buddy letters from different people (one can be your spouse or significant other) plus 1 statement of support on yourself same form/format (21-4138). The more details the better.
Also, write a statement of support on yourself detailing the events and injuries. I am not sure how to post an attachment, but I do have a copy of the nexus letter.

Hello.
Like I said before Documents keep multiple copies. I am sure the VA is better than when I went through the system. This is no BS I met our president when he was running. I was Nassau county chairman to elect DonaldJ. Trump. I had one request of him. When he wins the election Please take of the Veterans.
