Did mine at beginning of the year, got Drs appts (3 total, 2 at VA and 1 outside referral) within first 2 months, rating decision made in July/Aug. Haven't done my appeal yet (still waiting on documentation from military).
Dads been waiting for a good 18 months for one of his claims...
He is through LA, I am through San Diego, wondering if location is a big player in time it takes? Can someone file outside of local area?
