Re: Trying to find out info. on medals for first gulf war

There was a Kuwaiti Liberation Meal awarded by the Government of Saudi Arabia. This is the one that has the three bronze stars on the ribbon if you were involved in all parts of the war and was presented in a nice little green case that had a small clasp on the front and a hinge in the rear. After a...

Re: Social Security

I figured I would update since I posted a lot about my choice to file for SSDI in this thread. On July 31st 2012 I was finally awarded 80% SC with the VA and my SSDI claim took less than 4 months for resolution and a positive outcome. I am in the process right now of applying for TDIU as the decisio...

Re: Jake Breitenbach - 5 Bronze Stars

One can only speculate however I feel the need to let you know that on the DD-214, where it list's awards earned, if your reference to Southwest Asia Service Medal w/3 bronze stars is part of the 5 then that is not a bronze star in the same capacity as what you may be thinking. Those just represent ...

Re: My claim and your advice please ...

I have since applied for SSDI by advice of my treating Psychiatrist and was approved the first go around. I am heading down to finalize everything with the SSDI lady in just a few minutes. I still have a request in for TDIU but I am sure that will be another year before they decide that but the SSDI...

Re: My claim and your advice please ...

Well I started this claim about 22 months ago and this thread quite a ways back....over a year I think.. and I was really pissed off at the way the QTC C&P examiner treated me. I have fought the good fight and it looks as though I was rated 80% total yesterday according to the AB8 letter and amount ...

Re: My claim and your advice please ...

Thanks Dave for that advice. I can't qualify for that I am sure since my Wife works and our means would be slightly higher I think.

Re: My claim and your advice please ...

Well it has taken me this much time, since I first made this post back in Nov 2010, to get another C&P exam .... one for PTSD and one for my left shoulder. I had the C&P's at the VAMC of my choice, the one that I go to for all my medical operations, etc... , and I think they went very well. 19 month...
