An immunologist figured I was probably immunodeficient in late 1998 – when our air force (RAAF) gave me contraindicated vaccines. This caused chronic recurrent vertigo, among other clinical features, constituting permanent medical disability. Another immunologist prescribed Intragam blood infusions to treat two pilots on my base – a senior officer and me. The RAAF facilitated this treatment for the senior officer, but discriminated against me by stopping and refusing treatment. This aggravated my medical condition. The RAAF committed in writing to review complaints, but never completed its investigation.
The Government wants to save money. Therefore, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) do not assess rehabilitation/compensation claims according to the appropriate 50% (balance of) probability standard. Instead, they demand assessments are done by medical experts according to a 95% or greater probability. By definition, the Government’s refusal to follow the legal standard is, well, illegal. I’m attempting to encourage those working for the Government to show integrity and to stop denying veterans their rights.
Re: some involvement by church members?
Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers? (1 Corinthians 6:5)
