@  notapb1 : (18 August 2014 - 07:26 AM) Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

I tried to get to the point that no vet wants to give the VA an alternative explanation for any disability they are claiming besides military service. The VA will ignore ten tons of evidence that supports service connection if they can jump on one sentence that could be the explanation for a disability that is not related to military service. This happened to me more than once. If you give the VA a string to pull on they will pull that string and unwind your claim.



John, I hear you...I had the same issue come up for me in the early part of my claim process back in 2003. I think that is when it turned into a "fight" with the VA. So, I know exactly what you're talking about.

He was being treated! More then once, and he served in several war zones, he did make rank quickly when it came to serving his country and doing his job went above the norm and had perfect evaluations,
I think he was having a hard time adjusting to civilian life especially when he was used to being in charge ect............ yes the military was treating him in fact he spent 6 weeks in the hospital for inpatient alcohol treatment...... please explain to me what you mean by service connected he is deceased.

If you are filing for the MST you must show that you had PTSD prior to your husband's death. From what I have read it seems that your husband had some problems prior to his death. Was he ever treated for a mental condition while he was on active duty. Was his alcohol abuse self medication for an underlying problem. He seems to have made rank quickly and then got out with 16 years of service. Was there a traumatic event that happened to him. Perhaps his death should be looked into for service connection. I don't want to open an old wound, but look into all possibilities.
