I looked on the PTSD forum about being diagnoised for PTSD in-service vs post service and saw that in 2008 the Sec VA said that if a person is diagnoised for PTSD while in-service that the VA can take the "Lay" veterans word however I have seen nothing that says about post service.

I was diagnoised with post service PTSD by two VA physicologists in two different states for things that happened in the 1st Gulf War. So I filed for VA disability based on these two doctors, shrinks, diagnosis and am wondering if I need to submit copies of my orders sending me to Kuwait and anything else I might have that shows I was there?

One of the Va shrinks referred me to the 5 weeks full time PTSD clinic. Has anyone been to one of these full time PTSD clinics that you stay at full time?

Because you were in the first Gulf War, you should have the Southwest Asia Medal (SWAM) showing you served in theater. The new PTSD presumptives are supposed to make things a lot easier. You may not need to submit any orders.
