Vet Battles VA over PTSD Rating
James Duff, who served in the military in Iraq in the early 2000's, recently fought the Veterans Administration over an evaluation concerning the severity of his PTSD, which he was diagnosed with last year.
The 48 year old Lincoln man was rated on the low end of the VA's compensation scale for PTSD, resulting in lower monthly payments.
But when he appealed, he won and his rating shot up, increasing his monthly benefit by over one thousand dollars.
Duff is obviously happy about that, but says the low rating should've never happened in the first place.
But his challenges don't end there.
