Danny,

I understand you wanting to give up, but I don't advise anyone to give up the fight for benefits, the benefits are there for us to apply for, when the application is denied, appeal should always be the next avenue to take, if you continue to get denied, the fight needs to continue, not end.

Beat them at their own game by getting the evidence their looking for, what do you got to lose?

Danny,

They make you wait for over two years only to deny you the reconsideration?

They can be cruel dealing with injured Veterans, but as stated above by others, as hard as it may be to stay strong, you need to keep yourself in check and decide if your going to continue to fight the reconsideration, or let it go.

I don't know the full details of your claim, but what I can say is that if you plan on fighting this with new evidence, you need to first understand fully why it is that you continue to be denied.
Secondly, you need to find out what is is you need to get approved, what new evidence would be inline to having you being approved.
Thirdly, you need to get medical support to gather this new evidence to bring forward.

This is what worked for me in the past when VRAB was denying one particular condition, over and over again.
I made an appointment with a specialist who deals in my condition, I brought all the denial letters to my appointment and asked him if he could support me in writing up a new evidence letter for me to send to VAC.
The letter was written, and I was finally approved, it took roughly a year for my approval.

You might want to look into if you can submit new evidence, if new evidence comes to light, and you can take it from there.

Sorry to hear Danny. After all that bloody time, it's gotta sting.
But keep your head above water and stay well.

Thanks for the support Bigrex and Johnny.
I have established a cross Canada network since becoming a member of CSAT (which helps).
It hurts to receive a letter of denial, but whom am I to question authority.
Where do I go from here?  Healing hopefully.  
Wait and see what April brings and onto the next step.
Any suggestions where to go from here?
I have some ideas, but I feel as though they are leaving it be because all my injuries occurred post 2006 and they have me placed in the NVC.  
I may have to seek a civilian lawyer and go from there.

I'm sorry to hear that Danny. Stay well, and don't let them beat you. They only win when you give up the fight.

Backstabbed at that!
Thanks guys appreciate it!
Two fellow brothers, unbelievable.
To be denied on paper and not to my face.
Yes, it would of been more appreciated.
Never suck up an injury, because they will dance the dance they want and you'll be the one later suffering.

After two years plus, my case is now finally in front of the Veterans Review and Appeal Board (VRAB).

Sad state of affairs.  

I never wanted out of the military and once out I fought and fought, but with VAC/VRAB.

Still here today fighting, because I know I was wronged.

Two years plus, of mind boggling twist and turns for them to decide again upon my case.

(The very same people (VRAB) that took away my early years of life because of a broken system).

1/5 partial entitlement, BS.

VRAB, YOU ARE NOT ABOVE MEDICAL AUTHORITY! READ MY DOCUMENTS! READ MY DOCTOR’s REPORT!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Sincerely and truly yours,

Never going to go away until you fix the problem.

Hang in there Danny, Jan. 5 and then some.
A lot of us here have gone through that kinda wait.

Stay strong.

Thanks johnny211.
I am pretty sure that it is the same VRAB board members who will review my case, as it clearly states it on my letter that I received from VAC.

Best of luck on it Danny. I once won one on a reconsideration. I think it's different people who look at it. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Johnny,211 - Out. VVV
