Know what you mean there; took us from 1978-2002 to get my wife's service connected disability. From 1978-2002, she got a Navy "Retirement" check for $250 BEFORE TAXES. Finally, in 2002 we got her rated at 100% thru the VA. AND we have been fighting them ever since to get them to backdate it to her medical discharge date of 1978, they only consider it back to 2002.
