 Despite mutilple VA doctors having diagnosed veteran with PTSD related to military service, the VA strings out veteran's case for 10 years. Veterans fight ends in Washington D.C. when the case is closed with VA claiming veteran missed the filing deadline.

Not being able to dispute the filing date and with no new evidence available - after 10 years- this action effectively kills the veterans case with no chance of re-opening claim or appealing.

Vet asks that people contact Congress to have these arbritrarily set filing deadlines removed so that this doesn't happen to other veterans.
