Here’s a great BVA read from a good attorney in Florida. Ralph Bratch nailed this one with good cites and an excellent nexus for the Vet. As is standard operating procedure, VA tried to hang the drug allegation around his neck. Unfortunately, they forgot to specify which kinds of drugs and via which method of ingestion. I’ve never heard of anyone shooting up LSD. Apparently, neither had the VLJ. Result. Bratch 1, VA 0.
Some of you might want to put Mr. Bratch on the rolodex. He appears to be quite knowledgeable on Hep C claims and is a member of NOVA. Anyone that does this deserves a medal anyway. Speaking of the devil, Mr. Bratch is a Veteran. All the more reason to use him.
