Here’s the actual decision that gets down in the weeds and begrudgingly grants my 1994 earlier effective date. What is of note is that the BVA tries to impute that I submitted evidence after the issuance of the January 5th 1995 SOC when their very own files show clearly that the evidence was received and filed in the C-file on December 7th, 1994. Regardless of how you try to adjudge when they received them, the seminal fact was that any receipt of new and material evidence during an appeal period requires a de novo decision all over again. This they artfully danced around for five and one half years interest free.
This is why this site was begun. To accomplish what you see here-for all of you. VA will do their utmost to make it look as though you are at fault for any of their shortcoming. This accelerated to the point of blatant lies as to a) whether they received it at all; b) that they actually looked at it and denied it wtihout telling me and finally c) it was all a fig newton of my imagination and that I should just go home and get over it. Win or die Folks. All you have to lose is the black ink in your printer cartridge and some 8 1/2 X 11 paper.
