LOD for VA Claim Reserves


Registered Member
Feb 15, 2019
I received a memorandum in lieu of an LOD determination in my MEB packet.

'In accordance with the listed references, an LOD determination is required in order to
complete the DES process. This memorandum is in lieu of an LOD determination IAW
reference (c) to document service connection.'

Ebenefits says not service connected. I have years of medical records, including the records from when I was injured during basic training. On the LOD paper it even states "direct result of the stress fracture which occurred while the Soldier was ordered to active duty for more than 30 days.'

I am in the reserves.
Does the VA accept this kind of LOD for reservists?
