Board Erred In Denying Iraq War Veteran Service Connection For Sleep Apnea

Board Erred In Denying Iraq War Veteran Service Connection For Sleep Apnea

The Board denied service connection for sleep apnea when it failed to consider whether service connection could be granted under the provisions pertaining to medically unexplained illnesses for veterans who served in the Persian Gulf.  The Court found that the potential applicability of the Persian Gulf War provisions was reasonably raised by the record and that the Board failed to explain why it did not address the provisions in light of the symptoms the Veteran experienced and the unknown pathophysiology of his condition.
