Well, I noticed on Monday that on e-Bennies, my status had gone to Complete. Waited all week to find out the outcome, but did notice e-Bennies now showed me at 70% disabled. Got the brown envelope today (Saturday), and it will take some time to work with Stu (VSO) and see where we go from here. I've seen the retro pay and it only goes back to Dec. 2010, so I will have to fight to take it back further. Still have to fight for the tinnitus as well.
But . . . the VA has finally admitted that my hips and knees are service related! Still have a lot of paperwork to do, need to add wife, kids, kids in college info, etc., but, we're getting there!
If this story makes you mad about the VA . . .
If this story makes you mad about the VA . . . contact your Representatives in Congress and the Senate, or the Veteran's Administration and let them know how you feel about the way the VA treats our vets. You can reference my blog or or the stories of many other vet's and their treatment by the VA available on the web.
