  1. https://iris.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3033/kw/3033/index.htm THIS IS A LINK FOR VETS LIVING OUTSIDE US. IT HAS ANSWERS. I DONT THINK IT MATTERS WHICH ONE YOU CHOSE. YOUR HEARING DATE SHOULD HAVE HAD A TIME AND PLACE?
  2. i have similar back issues. DJD and nerve. i did try this as well. i put in for hypertention due to pain and i got a denial. the denial stated from Doctor ( wich i dont believe) said, all medical dictionaries state that chronic hypertention is not a secondary due to pain its only a brief of high blood pressure. in other words,,, they said that hypertension needs a reason and pain is not the absolute cause. you will need an IMO directing that it is due to pain for you.
  3. now the bva customer service site today is stating... Currently, the Board is generally distributing cases to Veterans Law Judges for adjudication with docket dates up to November 2012.
  4. this is today's customer service site statement Currently, the Board is generally distributing cases to Veterans Law Judges for adjudication with docket dates up to November 2012.
  5. id sugesst same. also find a way to get an MRI of spine... make sure the Dr. are using Tool to get true degrees of flexion not just eyes or perception. also read up on radiculopathy online and see if you have any of the symptoms.
  6. Bronco, i understand remands but again when you read the citation you see the entire case. anotherwords,,, if this was a remand than the remand happend after 2014. if the backlog now on the website states january of 2013???? again how did this happen and many like it.
  7. The House Committee on Veterans' Affairs reviews veterans' programs, examines current laws, and reports bills and amendments to strengthen existing laws concerning veterans and the BVA https://veterans.house.gov/ twitter is,, @HouseVetAffairs all the congress persons who are on the comity are listed and the twitter accounts are there to.
  8. whats strange is,, fiscal year end 2015 report for BVA was submitted to Congress. same for 2016.... but No one noticed??? like why is there absolutely no news on this issue?
  9. a complete circus. it was almost designed to do before they met with congress... i noticed this a month back as well. its absolutely crazy. now the va is blaming congress isntead of just doing the job they get paid to do.
  10. SO MIAN POINT WAS ,,, DO NOT DO A DRO REVIEW IF YOUR SERVICE VET REP SAYS GO FOR APPEAL. THIS IS REAL BIG.... THIS MEANS IM SAYING TO ALL VETS TO SKATE OUT OF THE DRO REVIEW ... NOW,,, IF SOMEONE TOLD YOU THAT YOU CAN WIN WITH THE DRO THEN OK BUT,,,, YOU ARE ONLY SMART TO TO SIGN THE I9 PUSHING IT TO BOARD OF VETERANS APPEALS., REASON IS,,,, ONCE YOU DO THAT THE RO WILL SAY OH xxxx,,,, THEN THEY WILL PUSH FOR ALL OF TYPES OF HEARINGS BUT AT SAME TIME KEEP YOUR PLACE ON DOCKET. SO,, SAY F-U TO DRO REVIEW THEN FILE YOUR FORM 9 AND LET THE RO DEAL WITH YOU AS YOU ASK FOR A PRINT OUT OF YOUR SUBSTANTIATED APPEAL. THIS WORKS FOLKS.. THATS WHY IM SAYING IT... THE ABSOLUTE MAIN POINT FOR BEGINERS IS THAT YOU REALLY WANT YOUR DOCKET NUMBER NOT YOUR DRO REVIEW. IM JUST TRYING TO HELP.!
  11. ALSO,,,,, WE NEED A CHAIRMAN FOR THE BOARD OF APPEALS. THIS POSITION HAS BEEN VACANT SINCE 2010... OVER 6 YEARS AND POTUS HASNT NOMINATED ONE.
  12. my fear is that,,, THIS IS A PROMOTION. BRINGING HIM UP FROM WITHIN IS NOT USUALLY A DRAIN OF SWAMP. hes been there for an already over 500+ days and now gets the Top Job?
  13. if i seperate from my wife for a few months and still give her money........ do i need to tell the va regarding spouce + dependents>? whats the VAs business and What isnt?
  14. kentorambo WON HIS APPEAL.. HOPE HE PUTS HERE ALL HE DID AND HOW... JUST GLAD TO SAY HURRAH!!!! WE NEED GOOD STORIES SO ASK THE GUY
  15. ok so.... little more news about docket #s so when you file your form9 not your nod date not your claim date... its the date you file your form9 for appeal at bva.. not your dro , the bva. then it starts time. i dont mean to sound this way but so much he said she said on here.... the date you sign the form 9 and it is put through the checklists is the day you get a docket. this docket is not disclosed to you the veteran because you probably have an issue with it. thats another point but,.,,, so if you have a few different appeals going and your newest appeal has yet to get a formal form9 then the bva mysteriously is allowed to give you a docket year of the last one. no matter if the others are older... if they roll all into one then you get the last date. some might say who have royalty payments... well its because they are contentions close to each other...FALSE .... EARS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANKLES...... HANDS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ERECTIONS....... ANYWAY..... GET IN ON THE DISAGREEMENTS OF THE DOCKET RULES AND FIGHT.... ITS ABOUT US BUT ALSO THE ONES TO COME.....
