Disabled American Veterans v. Sec'y Veterans Affairs, 2016-1493

In a petition for review of provisions of the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) Adjudication Procedures Manual M21-1, involving 38 U.S.C. section 1117, which provides presumptive service connection for veterans who served in the Persian Gulf War with a qualifying chronic disability, and the statute's handling of a medically unexplained chronic multisymptom illness (MUCMI), the appeal is dismissed for lack of jurisdiction where petitioner cannot directly request review of that provision pursuant to 38 U.S.C. section 502.
