GI Blues 2013

One year, eleven months, three weeks ago I filed a disability claim with the VA because of an injury to my ankle. The claim was denied by the VA because they said it was not service connected.

I was stationed In Germany when the injury occurred. this tells me that anything that happens when you are on active duty; is service-connected because you are on duty 24/7 until the day you are discharged.

The VA took two long years to make a decision that could be made in the first six months. I would like to get some feedback  for other vets who may had similar experiences; what is the definition of service related?
