Got a veteran who’s active duty medical records are missing, gone..zero, zilch..and the veteran is filing for Sleep Apnea which has been diagnosed by a private Dr. specializing in Sleep Apnea.
The veteran has a DBQ/Nexus from this Dr. mentioned above that clearly states “It’s more likely than not that the veteran had Sleep Apnea while on active duty..”
ALL attempts have failed to find his medical records, including the VA themselves looking for them.
Other than buddy letters, how does the VA make a determination as to SC?
Are there current laws on the books that tells the VA how to deal with these lost active duty medical records in respect to claims?
