I was medically discharged from the Army with a disability rating in 2008. After my discharge, I waited two months for my first appointment at the VA, where I was denied my first disability claim due to a lack of “medical evidence” of my disability.
During my second review, I with a doctor who was annoyed and sarcastic from the start. Again my claim was denied. Thankfully, I was able to go before a BVA judge who, after reviewing my information, has opened my case up for review. Unfortunately, I have been waiting eight years and still do not have the proper rating from the VA.
