Rating received

Finally got a letter from the VA regarding my service connected compensation claim. I’ve been assigned a 30% rating, which I’m not too happy about. It’s like they ignored everything that was happening with my leg, and simply looked up what rating was next to “hip fracture.” I’m going to meet with the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) this week and file an appeal.

    I just found your blog and I have no words – only a sense of admiration. I could not imagine going through what you have been through yet still remain optimistic and perseverant.

    I hope your stay on the TDRL is a short one and that the higher-ups notice what a disgrace it would be to deny you a second shot at the Marine Corps.

    All the best,
