I need a little help,Ifiled a claim in Oct 08 for acne vulgaris scars and tinnitus.I had a C&P exam for both of these in Nov.The Examiner noted that while I was in boot camp I was treaded for acne,and that I stated that I said that I had a history of severe acne.Will this disqualify me as service connected? I had numerous bouts noted in my 4 years in service- i was an aircraft handler on the flight deck and the heat,sweat,and jp-5 exhaust aggravated my acne severely.I was given a no shave chit twice,but had to shave due to safety regs on the deck-firefighting issues etc.The examiner noted that I had multiple pitted scars on both cheeks and neck,underlying tissue loss and tissue damage,scar depression/pitting and some discoloration.My claim has been ready for decision since jan 12 th.and the anxiety is killing me.please if someone has any input please reply. thank you
No need for 'USELESS ANXIETY'
As long as it is documented in your service records...it will be assumed as being "Aggravated by the veteran's service" I wouldn't lose any sleep over the claim, barring something unknown to me...since I can only go by the information you provide, it should sail right along..btw...what happened to JP-4? I always thought that was what the jets used.
Wishing you the best in your endeavors..and you're fine, focus on your future, this will take care of itself.
I meant jp-5 sorry, thanks for the response
"""""WELCOME HOME"""""""" and """THANK YOU for YOUR SERVICE""
I hope you stick around..DAVE_M loves a huge numbers of veterans...this is his baby !!
im sorry.you wanted to know what happened to jp-4,correct? I was in from 1987-1991 and jp- 5 is what we used- i believe that jp-5 was formulated for aircraft on carriers.thats what I was told anyways,but dont know for sure
Back when I was with POL at carswell AFB,, working with those B-52s and F-4s
That was what we had then JP-4...........but thats been a few years I was thee from 85- 89 I guess
God Bless Us All
just received my initial rating-40% with 7 months backpay-wooohoooo! that will at least compensate for all the child support that I pay out monthly, thanks
If your x finds out you get sc pay from the va she will request that it be counted as income. I just got out of court and the Judge used every dime of my 70% toward my gross income to pay child support. If she dont ask you dont tell her about it.

Paying out for child support to better your children is OK...however to have to pay it out as Alimoney is another thing...I would like to see how one could "HIDE" his or her VA Disability check from the State where you live...
I am a Disabled Vet from Iraq receiving 100% Service Connected disability from the VA, and I am currently going thru a divorce in South Carolina. The Courts here are calculating my VA Disability for Child support and calculating it as income. I am currently having to pay $425 a month child support as well as $44 dollars a month after school care for my 10yr old son as well as keeping him every weekend so my soon to be ex-wife can work. How can my disability be calculated for child support for an amount more than what the VA pays me for my dependant child,,,should my child support only be the amount that the VA pays for my child seeeing as how I am the one disabled and the law clearly states that VA Disability is SOLELY for the disabled veteran and is not to be calculated as income by any means nor distributed or recieved by NO PERSON other than the disabled veteran...

They can not take the money, but they can order you to pay.
I am sorry, but Do you not know how much it cost a month to raise a child. Just because you get disability does not preclude you from the responsibility of raising your child. To cloth, feed, house, provide day care and other necessary items for the child is very expensive. Children out grow clothes quickly, are always hungry and the parent who has the main custody of the child usually needs a larger home (rent/mortgage payment) due to the fact that they need an extra bedroom for the child. If the child only stays during the weekend, then a two bedroom apartment is great but not necessary - a 10 yr old can sleep anywhere for a weekend. Day care is very expensive. $44 a month is nothing. Your ex-wife is probably paying a lot more then $44 a month. Also there are always extra expenses like sports, recreational things, medical, shoes, school supplies, etc. Also I know from experience that children are always needing something and usually it is the mother (but not always) that goes out and gets it.
Just because you are disable doesn't mean you don't support your child. VA disability is designed to support the veteran and they try to provide a little toward dependent support, but they are not required to fully support dependents. But you as a father are. At 100% you are getting over $32,000 a year. You are ordered to pay $425 + $44 for $469 a month or roughly $5500 a year. You are getting off cheap. Don't begrudge your child what he needs. You are as equally responsible as your ex to provide financial support to your child. Believe me when I state that $5500 a year does NOT support a child adequately when you add up all the expenses - both large and tiny.
I can understand if you were being ordered to pay alimony out of your disability, but not child support. I've know too many men who cut and run and try to get out of their responsibility of providing for their children, thereby leaving the responsibility to their wives placing a large financial burden on their shoulders.This message has been edited.
