That's about the only good thing about sleep apnea. If you are diagnosed in service, and then go on CPAP, it's an automatic 50%. A few years before I retired they removed my uvula and a little bit of my soft palate to try to alleviate my sleep apnea. It didn't work and I wound up using CPAP anyway.

I would recommend against this surgery if it's ever offered to anyone out there. It's extremely painful and not very effective.
