A veteran has to be very careful what he/she says to any official from the VA. Your statements may come back to haunt you. Especially since everything is now digitized.  If you have an issue the veterans's of foreign wars have volunteers that are very helpful. Talk to them before filling out a disability request evaluation.  One has to be especially careful about interviews with VA psychiatrists. Nothing you tell them is confidential. And when they ask "do you own a firearm" the answer must always be "no".  Even if you are a life-long member of the NRA.  They forward every name that is involved with PTSD to the people who maintain a firearms ban list. This has been so since the Clinton Administration.  Once you are on the list it is virtually impossible to get off.  They never funded the protocol to get off the list. And the penalties for possessing a firearm once on the list are draconian.
