I am currently 80% Permanent and Total IU and I filed several claims about 7 years that were denied because the VA said they were not service connected. The claims were for GERD and Bi-Lateral Peripheral Neuropathy (not diabetic). The PN was diagnosed by the VA in 2004 and I am also being treated for Gerd. I am sure they are both related to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune ( was there 1982-84)and was wondering should I file to reopen these claims because of this new evidence. Could these claims could aid in the future for SMCs or getting schedular 100% or could this cause the VA to re-look at my IU conditions.

no matter what you do they will look at every thing again.
As for the GERD you might get 10%. hard to say without knowing what else you have. if you have some other GI disorder that is in the same list you m\most likely will not get anything.
The PN you may want to look up if it even is on the list. next it cannot be from something else. nerve blockage, DJD DDD and at 10% or more.

Today's paper showed the president signing into law the Camp Lejeune contanimated water VA benefits. If you have not done so already, go ahead and submit now.

Absolutely.

Here is link to the first Camp Le Jeune Bad Water vet's award:



http://www.hadit.com...-lejeune-award/

It includes the Le Jeune Training letter too.

Also if one searches hadit under Camp Le Jeune, further discussions will pop up on this serious issue.
