    I hope you read this article below and then take your medical records to a different VA office, get a new case officer and ask for a review and update of your situation.
    It is recommended for all of us to get reevaluated if our military service connected disabilities get worse over time.
    Your ears sound like you have Tinnitus (ringing in the ear). That is claimable by itself Sonny.
    If you can’t walk sometimes and that has gotten worse over time, it is time to get reevaluated. You earned these rights and the new VA is working to take care of us better than before.
    Hope this helps some small bit.

    On your applications identify as a minority or LBGTQ. You will receive an interview offer definitely. Over 50% of these positions will
    Go to non Caucasians/ protected classes. Use your ancestry. com results even if it’s 1%. The VA is the largest minority hire agency in the Federal Government. The new VA Secretary isn’t a doctor or a Veteran. He’s a former Obama chief of staff and he is currently in the process of hiring a huge minority employee influx. Once you’re in the interview seat you can’t be asked what you are. You’ll get an interview if you play the game. If you are denied the job initiate a FOIA request for all emails, documents, recordings, and evaluations for the job position you were denied. It’ll open your eyes…
