So I got a fat envelope in the mail today from the VA. Apparently they are giving me a 50% disability for a knife wound I received (from another soldier) during my deployment. The fagtard sliced through the middle pad on my left thumb, partway through the bone, with a serrated knife. I've had reconstructive surgery to try to rebuild the nerve path, but it didn't take. I only talked to the VA once about it when I went for my post-deployment physical. Apparently they've been in contact with my surgeon (I elected NOT to use the VA doctors). According to the letter, I'm due for $770/month for life - or until the disability is corrected. So my question is this: Does this affect my ability to deploy? When I go through the pre-mob process, are they going to look at this and say I'm not fit to fight? The dead thumb is on my non-firing hand, and although I have to focus a little more when I grab with my left hand, in all other aspects I'm good to go.
