Well said. You have to keep every piece of paper, copies of orders, etc. You never know what you might have to prove

Col. the problem is the snake-eating, hooah types; SF, Ranger, SEAL, Recon, etc., they worked hard to keep their medical records clean of any indication of injuries to maintain duty status and career upward mobility. If they didn't retain a treatment record, they will need buddy statements in support of claim, IF they can find buddies 20+ years later, and IF that person is still even alive. Point being: document every illness, mecication and injury.

1SG John Millan the same can be said for aviators. Any complaint made you unable to fly (DNIF) so back and neck injuries are not reported. Once you retire then you are left with deteriorating necks and backs and the VA can be indifferent. You may need to get your own MRIs and XRays and have a Dr tie them to your flying before the VA will,listen to your claim and then it is still difficult.

I had done copies of Cook worksheets for days and meals that I worked on and my name was on entrees and side items to be done.

I had them in a Manila envelope in my trunk. Mom wanted to trash them. i’m Glad I had them.. some joker at VA doubted my being in country in Nam.. I brought out the cook work sheets with my name assigned to items and signed off by our officer and NCOIC.. shut that guy up !

Brother, please don't wait too long. See your local VSO and talk to them. There are time limits.

MCPOCG (Join to see) - Only 22 years? Lucky Dog!! I argued and fought for 39 years over a blown out knee from a parachute jump that had the medical records in their possession. Finally got the service connection, and now the VA is telling me that I have many more problems that are service connected, and are helping MOST vigorously to get all the approvals and ratings. Could it be that they don't want any Congressman poking around over why it took 39 years?

The VA has several web sites now just to confuse you even more. They have the eBenefits which is a real pain to change your password every 90 days to a new one. Then you have VA.gov which you can do a lot of the stuff you can do on eBenefits, And they also have MyHealtheVet where you can make medical appointmments, refill prescriptions, print out your appointment schedule, and contact your Primary Care through secure messaging.

Do not file through E-Benefits, it is a black hole.
