cwolf20: A friend of mine is still trying to get his missing half of an ankle declared as a handicap. Instead of a scar, according to the medical records.Several of the VA people he's talked to over the years have told them that he doesn't look handicapped. He walks straight. He doesn't slur his speech. He at the least wears nice jeans, a collared shirt, and good tennis shoes. He's been told that because he dresses neat, doesn't slouch or slur, never seems to walk without any issues. In spite of the wooden insert in his shoe that causes pain over time.That they can't do anything.
