Good mornin' all.

The sweet and sour ...

Got a decision from the VA regarding my claim ... a long list of issues were under appeal ... they granted service connection to all of them. Took a long time ... 14 years ... of arguing, fussing, fighting, documenting, challenging, etc. ... but at least it is now done with ... and favorably as well.

But I still have several issues that I haven't claimed yet. I don't know if I should. I am now rated at 100% ... but the ratings are not protected, and if something changes in the future it may be too difficult to prove service connection for the stuff that I haven't claimed yet.

I gotta say ... the VA really suprised me ... I'm still kinda skeptical ... but relieved that this part of the battle is finally over.

Thanks for the support.
