I Contacted Customer Service Or What Ever You Want To Call It Who In Turn Contacted The Navy Hosp Pensacola Commander Who In Turn Did Nothing. Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place. I Guess Just Do What Ever They Want To Because They Can, But Don't Give A Sh T For The Vets That Suppose To Being Supporting From All The Military  organizations. This Is Not The Way They Have Been Trained And Promised To Do.

@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

After going thru what I would describe as a very long bad dream I decided to file a claim for TBI. It took nearly 15 years to realize what was wrong, another 5 or 10 believing that it would go away, and obviously it hasn't. I started seeing a VA shrink in the early 90's and have been doing so off and on since for all the symptoms that go with a TBI (anx.,depres.,mood dis., social dis.,) and anything else that goes with it. Meds have been increasing the whole time and are maxed out doses now. At least I hope so, any more and I would be a zombie!
After going thru the C&P exams, Neuro and Physc, both were positive for TBI w/ facial nerve damage and Ptsd from the TBI (hope that made sense?), and now it's up to the review board and God, which ever has the higher authority to make a decision. My claim was filed 10 months ago and I'm still standing in line like everyone else. It's hard for a soldier to ask for help, but if anyone knows a young soldier coming back please make sure they get it and don't wait like I did.

Like you I waited 21 years to ask for help. The only reason I went to VA 20 years ago was I was out of options.

You earned your benefits through your service.

Hi Carlie,
Sure, it's all well documented. The date and even time of accident, evac orders to base hospital, 3 days in our MASH, and 21 more days of dazed and confused bed rest (if you can call a cot bed rest!) Just in case it wasn't I had copies made at the time of injury and have kept them safe w/me for almost 30 years. Not that the military would lose or misplace someones records. Between that and the Hadit forums, I hope I have it covered. Thank you Hadit members!!!!

When '79-'87 (peace time) I don't think sitting on a tarmac for 2 days waiting to go to Grenada counts.
Where Korea, Germany, 2 stateside units. Injured at NTC (Ft. Erwin, Calif.) in '82
