    Question VA disability

    Advertisements
    DH had a knee injury while in training and had been told at a post-deployment breifing that he could go to the VA and apply for disability of some sort. The rep. from the VA said that the Army will not know if he goes to the VA or not.

    So he went and the person there told him that since he is going into the active army, this may affect it and DH just left cause he was scared he wouldnt get in to the Army. So which is true?? We have been trying to contact them and they never return our calls.

    if you get medical care for something that can hinder his performance in active duty military then yes it will cause problems with him trying to in the active military, it can also cause issues if he goes into reserves or national guard. not sure how to help him. va will offer disability if you are disabled. being disabled can keep you from being in the military.
    I feel the need to be petted too!

    VA compensation is basically like a "the military screwed me up and now I need supplemental income because I cannot work to my full potential" situation. So if he is planning on going active duty, he should not file a claim.

    He would also have to either have his DD-214 or talk to a VA rep on base that counsels those EASing to file a claim in the first place.

    thank you. I thought it was weird that the VA and Army would have no connection. I cant believe the VA rep misinformed us all so bad!
