This handbook addresses the obstacles that veterans face when filing for benefits related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
One of the greatest obstacles is establishing a connection between a veteran’s service and PTSD. Because both combat stressors and noncombat stressors can cause PTSD and because of the difficulties in diagnosing the condition, filing a successful claim for benefits is difficult.
Gives detailed instructions on how to prepare a well-grounded claim for benefits. This book will be required reading for any veteran or veteran’s dependent who wishes to obtain his or her well-earned benefits and for officials of service organizations who assist veterans with their claims. 231 pages.
