Re: “'The VA is waiting for us to die'

I'm 50% SC and received my disability less than 6 months after ETS from the Army. I did not use an attorney or VSO although I'm sure there are circumstances in which one or the other are necessary. While on AD I made copies of my medical records so I had them on hand after discharge. I did not let the pages of documentation intimidate me (that's exactly what the VA wants)and took my time filling them out in great detail using my medical records as a reference. The C&P examining physician was sloppy and wrote things in the report (which I asked for) that I refuted officially. It is far more than a shame that the government and administration makes veterans jump through the bureaucratic hoops it does; it's up there with treason in my opinion. I am also former employee with the VA system and know it's stacked against the vet at almost every turn. I do, however, have a problem with attorney's making a living off getting veteran's what they deserve. It should not have to come to that. The veterans who need this kind of help cannot afford 20% off the top; they need every dime.
