Back pay will go back to the time I was injured.

FALSE, No matter when you served, who you are, or what your injury is, back pay originates when you initially file for benefits. (As long as your claim does not close.) Now, some of you might say: “my buddy got it back when he was injured.” Well, he likely applied as a part of his discharge process. No two claims are alike; therefore everyone gets connected at different times.
