The saga of the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, a large Marine base in North Carolina, has been in the news the past few years. There have been stories in this blog as well. In March 2015, our blog post reported on the failure of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to create a presumptive link between service at the Marine base and a variety of conditions and illnesses. The next blog post on the subject, in August 2015, reported that the VA was looking into making some conditions presumptive for service at Camp Lejeune.
Veterans with TBI (traumatic brain injury) who apply for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may be wrongly denied because of a test used in VA medical facilities.
A recent story in the Los Angeles Times tells the story of a veteran who has been seeking full disability compensation. This wouldn't be that unusual, except that he has been doing so since 1985.
