I also want to know why some veterans get some kind of special combat pay, and others don’t? I am 100% disabled, and yes, it is combat related. So why when I ask at the VA why I don’t get combat related service pay, do they tell me I’m not eligible? I was in Iraq war zones, under fire, and the same thing in Afghanistan. It’s even listed on my burn pit registry, and in a bunch of other places in my record, as well as my having the medals for being there.
VA doesn't offer anyone "special combat pay"...there is no such thing. If you're 100%, you're getting what you earned. "Special Combat Pay" comes while you're deployed in a combat zone, not while you're a civilian.
