*Consumer Comment: From one vet to another...
Let it be known that there is a Federal Law that is supposed to compensate the veteran that had gotten injuries in the service, The Code of Federal Regulations is as follows :
TITLE38>PARTII.CHAPTERII>SUBCHAPTER II>SECTION 1110 - Basic Entitlement
For disability resulting from personal injury suffered or disease contracted in the line of duty, or for aggravation of a preexisting injury suffered or disease contracted in line of duty, in the active military, naval, or air service,during a period of war, the
United States will pay to any veteran thus disabled and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable from the period of service in which said injury or disease was incurred, or preexisting injury or disease was aggravated,
compensation as provided in this subchapter, but no compensation shall be paid if the disability is a result of the veteran`s own willful misconduct or abuse of alcohol or drugs.
VA admitted that my cold injuries were service connected as I had absence of hair on my lower extremities, including the feet, compliments of the Battle of the Bulge. For over 7 years now I have been trying to get my cold injuries pushed to an earlier date. I informed both the VA and the DAV that I would settle for 5 years, after all, I didn`t get them frozen on Jan. 29,2001, it happened in Jan., 1945.
I sent the VA and the DAV a copy of this Code of Federal Regulations, the officer at DAV stated that he knew about it.
