100% Disabled Combat Veteran
Judge: Lawrence T Ragona
8/17/2015 12:54:50 PM

My hearing was with "Judge" Ragona, 10 days ago. My lawyer called and told me that that the judge had sent my case to the decision writing part less than 48 hours of our hearing which meant that he made his decision during the hearing or shortly afterwards. They were confident that I would receive my benefits. What kind of person would rule against a 100% disabled combat vet? It was hard to phantom that I was denied. The VA rates me 100% Permanent and Total in 2 categories and a combined 60% in 4 categories and in addition to my ratings I am unemployable by the VA standards. Despite my combat injuries, blood disorder, liver problems, 48 surgeries, 3 surgeries scheduled next month, I am covered in scars, I have 2-4 dr appointments a week, two time cancer survivor, bilateral hearing loss, TBI, tinnitus, back injury, knee injury, in physical therapy, had a cortisone shot TODAY, heart condition, lung condition, loss of use of my thumb and partial use of a finger, and several other things I was still denied. Can anyone please explain to me how I can work? Who will hire me for a 40 hour job and work around my dr appointments, physical therapy, surgeries, recovery for my surgeries, etc? That is right. No one. Even if there was, I am UNEMPLOYABLE thru the VA. I fought for my country. Greatest honor in the world was serving my country. Unfortunately, I came home to fight an uphill battle to get the benefits I earned in battle. Today, I wish the IED would have taken my life because the government has abandoned me and the other vets.
