From 1977 until 1981, Adolfo Arellano served in the US Navy. Arellano observed his fellow servicemen being hurt and killed while serving aboard the U.S. Midway through his tenure in the Navy, he was also nearly crushed and was swept overboard. He then started to have serious mental health issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. He was unable to comprehend that he was qualified to submit a claim for disability payments with the Department of Veteran Affairs due to the severity of his condition. A former member of the armed forces of the United States may be qualified for disability compensation if they were hurt while serving in the military. Benefits may start the day following if they submit an application for them within a year of their military separation. Tuesday’s argument in Arellano v. McDonough will be heard by the Supreme Court.
