  11. Agree,how ever in 15% of cases the origination point is never found or discovered as such they cant say yes or they cant say No, in my case this point was never found I could but did not puruse any thing except treatment, in order for me to really gain any thing I have to be 50% disabled due to Combat to get Concurrent money meaning if I do not have 50% the VA will deduct this 600 from Navy retirement and turn right around and issue a check from VA looks like you get some thing how ever all you get is few bucks tax break. if over 50 % Combat related then a seperate check from VA and Navy Check full amount I could have sat down and declared Broken ankle, Broken Collar Bone, Hearing loss, Poor eye sight,No thanks At VA hospital I look around and see so many Vet's far worse off than me and hope they get the money I left on table, Yes your right I paid a price ,how ever i asked and was Given the Billet of Boat Captain ,hard to say You owe me, Just a simple Thank You is enough .
