I'm very confused here. :shrug: To make a long story short, my son is almost 24, went in the Army, during AIT the base doctor sent him to a VA hospital for depression. After a lengthy stay he was diagnosed with, sorry I can't spell it, skitsaphrenia and processed out after 8 months with an honorable discharge for medical reasons. He's being seen at the VA hospital and they are supplying his medication. But the local VA office says he is not eligable for any benefits because of the length of time he was in. Well, we got a letter in the mail requesting medical records as proof for his disability claim. He had not applied. Maybe the doctor did? Is it automatic? Well I thought it would be good to comply because it maybe hard for him to hold a job, he's looking now so we'll have to see how it goes. But I don't know what to send. They have a release form to sign and they will get the records, but you have to write down the places, dates and such of "said" records. The military handled all of his treatment, they have all his records. What could they possibly need from me? Could I just put the base as one location? and the VA hospital as another? I don't have doctor's names or phone numbers, and they say on the top of the form it should take 5 minutes to complete! :flame: How does this work?
