    Does anyone have experience in filing disability through the VA? I served in the Army from 1990-1995 but was not deployed. I received many vaccinations for my job in a research laboratory including anthrax vaccines which I think may be related to my CFS. However, I don't have my medical records from 1996-1998 which would help establish the service connection. I wasn't diagnosed with CFS until 2003 though.

    Anyone with similar experience or experience with VA disability or advice would be appreciated. The veteran's service officer (VSO) never seems to be in the office and just said to leave all the letters I get from the VA in his office and he will get back to me. I don't know how much of my records they need or if it's even worth the effort to file now that I can't get my earlier medical records.

    Thanks, Tracy
