I was told that my claim for my left knee pain was being sent to the VBA because I had failed to show injury or aggravation during service by the DRO. I was diagnosed with BILATERAL knee pain/ tendinitis in my service records. What can I do to prevent my claim to be sent to the VBA for something they obviously missed? I know they want to wash their hands of this but it's not right. I have a little more than a month to submit a VBA claim or start over. What can I do? Can I file a CUE, reconsideration, or something else? And if so, how do I go about it? I got doctor statements backing me that my left knee has been getting progressively worse since my time in service, which I submitted as well. The VARO defense is that it neither occurred or was aggravated by service because there in no proof but want me to submit an application for my right knee? How can I keep it with the VARO and keep my original date of claim?
