Thank you for your reply, yea all of this is so confusing. He has an appt on the 20th to write his NARSUM and he is starting his VA claim. We are just concerned about being able to financially take care of our family. We have heard it takes months or even a year to start receiving his disability pay, and we just don't understand how they expect us to take care of everything with no money. He doesn't even go to work now so I know he can't work in the civilian world and I have been taking care of our kids since high school. Just so confusing! How are you guys making it?
