Jim explains the importance of completing paperwork

Dear Jim,

My father was discharged from the Army in the early 70's, he was given a piece of paper that stated he a hearing loss. He went to the VA in La Jolla 2or3 yrs later and was told learn to read lips.
After I got out of the Navy I was awarded 100% for PTSD, he put in a claim for a hearing loss. Well during his C&P they only did a physical, he was denied for not having a Maryland CNC Exam.
We move to Tampa, FL in mid 2013 and is trying to get it done again & is getting the run around.
