I was never revaluated, retired from day one, no TDRL
With a PTSD diagnosis, I'm pretty sure one can not pass a pilot's medical flight exam. So flying is out unless you go for a sport license where a medical exam is not required.

I just received my VA decision. I have a few items that were denied because they claim there is no documentation despite the fact that they actually were in my medical record. I know that even if added they will be 0% but my concern is that 10yrs from now they create a problem. I also have another condition that they rated based on not taking medication daily despite the fact that I have been on daily meds for years. I am considering an appeal. Anyone have much experience with those? I am open to any suggestions.

Class 3 medical is a possibility?
Not sure on % of PTSD though, I heard 40% or less, but what do I know?
