Comments: MY MOM IS CONTINUING MY DAD'S CLAIM. THE VA IS A JOKE
WITH PAPERWORK. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE VETERAN.
THEY WOULD NOT LET ME GO TO THE C and P EXAM BUT I PUSHED
MY WAY IN. THEY DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO SEE THE WAY THEY
EXAMIN THE VET SO THEY DO NOT HAVE TO PAY THEM
COMPENSATION FOR WHAT THEY DID IN THE WAR. KOREA OR
ANY WAR IS THE SAME. ALL KINDS OF INJURIES CAME OUT BUT
KOREA IS THE FORGOTTEN WAR AND THE VA JUST HOPES THEY
ALL DIE BEFORE THEY HAVE TO ADMIT THEY USED AGENT
ORANGE OVER THERE, MY DAD SAW IT, HE ENCOUNTERED THE
COLD, HE LAY ON THE BELOW FREEZING GROUND FOR 3 WEEKS
BEFORE THEY COULD MOVE HIM TO A TENT HOSPITAL, HE SAW
EARS CUT OFF OF HIS FRIENDS AND THROWN INTO THE
TENT.....AND WHERE IS THE VA...I AM FIGHTING AND I NEED
HELP.....

Comments: He was rated at 60% service connected disability due
to cold weather - frost bite in his feet and hands.
He passed away in June of 2010. The VA has told me I
do not get DIC because his death was not service
connected. As he got older he suffered with hand and
foot pain, he developed pneomina, and shorrly
thereafter a blood clot in his leg. He had very poor
circulation, finally they had to amputate both legs.
His death certificate states congestive heart failure,
natural causes, but also lists periferal vascular
disease. His VA primary doctor says none of this was
service connected. She's wrong. I need help, I have
a VA service organization gentlemen "helping" me but
he says my case is poor. I have appealed. I don't
know where to turn. Can you give me any advice.

Thank you
