so why did u post this?

Initially I was hoping that posting about myhealthvet would be informative to Veterans who are not aware of this site. As with my post what the site is all about is posted and self explanatory, I use it and find it helpful.

As this site indicates 'Veteran to Veteran" but if that means no posting of informational information then forgive me, delete the post if you wish.

Welcome to this site. Any information for veterans is appreciated. I signed up for myhealthevet at the VFW National Conv. a couple yrs ago (SLC), but have not yet looked into the available services it provides.

Yes, this is a VETERAN TO VETERAN site and any one can use or not use any info provided here.

Welcome, and I thank you for your service to our country.

Your first post was good. There are vets that don't know about that site,

there are vets who have forgotten about myhealthevet, and there are vets that don't play well with others, if they are in a certain mood.

Hope you stick around.

    • Congratulations @Navy4life!!! You put up a good, hard fight and won the battle. Truly happy for your success...Enjoy! 🎉🎊🎈🎊🎉
    • Static ratings are not likely to be looked at again from a reexamination view point. All of my sc conditions are listed as static. Most have been static for more than ten years. I am 67 years old with minimal education. I have three 100% P&T schedular disabilities and numerous lesser %  disabilities. Lately, I filed for an increase for diabetes due to restricted and regulation of my activities. When the C&P was scheduled it was for my static Diabetes and for my static kidney disease, and for PN to include loss of use of two limbs and for my static 0% Chloracne. So, never say never! Why does VA insist on wasting my time and their resources. At least I drew my travel pay and the wife and I ate out for a change. The rater that asked for those reexaminations needs to read the CFR as it pertains to reductions.
    • By the way Buck, I will be on the podcast Thursday evening, the 27th, 6:00 PM. central time. i don't know if it is recorded or in real time. You are welcome to call in.
    • Being delivered in that format does not lend itself for an easy read, not even for a doctor with a lot of patients. (no pun intended)
    • Buck, When you file for any kind of veterans benefits the RO request your records (SMRs) from NPRC, St. Louis in your case. NPRC sends the RO your original records, not a copy. The RO places those original SMRs, in your 201 file, along with anything else that they might have in your claims folder and it never ever leaves that folder again. Your C-file remains at the RO. At the point of two years of inactivity the folder is moved to an off site facility where it can be accessed at any later date. If you move to another region, notify the RO and they will relocate your C-file to your new local RO. With proper notice, you can make an appointment at the RO to view and go through your C- file. Someone at the RO will be assigned to sit with you and watch you to make sure that you do not add or remove anything from the file. If you call the NPRC requesting a copy of the SMRs they will need to contact your RO and have the RO send a copy to you. They seem reluctant to comply but if you request a copy through a congressman or senator's office you will get a nice complete copy of your C-file in a reasonable amount of time. Your congressman or senator has a standard release form that you will need to sign upon the request. I was in Heidelberg in 1969 & 1970. I was at Tompkins Barracks many times during my stay in Germany. I was in the 519th Trans Co. The 519th no longer exist either.
