He got out Thursday, only 3 days after being put on the vent. He is a tough man, I wish I was half as tough as him.

My dad? He has his letter and he got approved for 3 things, but has not gotten a letter stating percentages. I just hope he gets enough to get a van so he can drive his scooter right up in it and for a lift chair. He gets so out of breath just getting up to go places, he often has to cancel trips.

Sir: All may be settled with you as of now, but I will share my experience with you. I am a disabled, combat veteran of Vietnam. There is 68-69. Most all of my help in filing came through the State of Ga. Veterans Service Rep and from the VA rep. at my Congressmans office. It was a long process. From the day I filed, it took me 10 years to finally get to 100%. The DAV gave me NO help at all. I know some veterans have had good success with DAV, but not me. In talking with some veterans of the most recent middle eastern conflict, there process has been somewhat shorter and easier, but back when I started to apply, the VA fought me all the way. I never filed but what they turned me down. That would make me mad and even more determined. I would tell you this: DO NOT GIVE UP. That is what they want you to do. Whomever you use to help you with your process, DO NOT GIVE UP. If they turn you down, keep on appealing. Also, there are some law firms out there that will help you, but they get their cut of your disability.. I have a friend that is now going that route. Good luck, my fellow veteran, and I hope you get ALL that you are eligible for.
