Question: In 1990 my claim for PTSD was denied. I did not receive the claim denial letter, because I was imprisoned. I suffered with PTSD for another 30 years. Following a diagnosis of prostate cancer I again filed a claim for agent orange exposure along with another claim for PTSD. The agent orange claim was denied, but the PTSD was rated 100% service connected. I asked that the effective date be the original claim date in 1990, but that was denied. I am seeking help in appealing this to the claims court.
