Hello Mr Perry, I so look forward to a response from you!
I’ll keep this short as possible. What are the chances of the VA giving a favorable rating to any ailments being presented “NOW” after retirement from civil service and the reserves of 38 years. No prior medical documentation in service records. Only claims went to civilian doctors. I guess working on collecting medical now to present to VA for delayed submission. Claims: ptsd, hearing, shoulder impingement, wearing leg braces due to drop foot (lower back issue). Thank you!!
