@  maxwell18 : (16 November 2014 - 09:04 PM) I Still Have To Bitch About The Navy Hosp Cutting My Meds By 2/3 On My Norco. 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 - 02:08 AM) "rolled" Not Ruled! :)
@  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.

If you ask the person at the RO 800 number you will just get what you already know and maybe a little less. If you can get up the ladder a little you will get more. I forgot what postion helped me with my claims, but they were very helpful.

Just ask straight out what you want to know.

IRIS through email is good for basic claim questions. It's tough to get a thorough answer without getting a brown envelope in the mail.

I tried to pin Iris down once.

I ask is it this or this.

She said, "Yep".

One thing about Iris is that she doesn't have a name.

Thanks for taking time to reply Stretch. This is a specific question about a decision as to whether a previous rating from 36 years ago is
protected. They did say I wouldn't be compensated for the retro, but were very vague as to what happened to the 50% rating. It was in their
system all these years & I never knew about it until 2011. The good news was they gave me a C&P & a 70% rating for same disability.
Thank You,

I have found the best way to get an answer is to go to the RO and ask them. I just went to the Hartford (Newington) CT RO last week and they answered my question.
