    • Blood Clot in Knee
      Hi All, I have a 100% vet who recently had a bad fall and ended up in the emergency room in the town he lives in because VA hospital was to far to take him to.  In examining him they found the blood clot in his knee.  The doctor at the hospital is telling him that he can't go home and told him to call the VA and see if they can monitor him for the blood clot for his INR level, while he's at home.  He's going to have to have blood thinners for the rest of his life. They also want him to have a physical therapist to come to his house and give him physical therapy for about 3 to 6 weeks.  Right now he can't put in any pressure on that leg at all.  This is the same knee that he hurt in the service that keeps giving out on him.  Can he put in a claim for AA, through the VA and if so what can he expect to receive.  Thanks in advance for your replies.
    • My husband died in motorcycle accident
      No, not at all! I appreciate all your advice. Getting the police report, the autopsy report and the medical records have brought up a lot but it's just part of the process. You guys have helped me so much. Thank you! 
    • Sexsomnia
      Update: So diagnosis: Bipolar II, PTSD w/agoraphobia, sexsomnia (undiagnosis, but have had it forever til I found a name for it) Delayed Phase Sleep syndrome, OCD, Hypersomnia I am no longer having nitemares or jumping at everything! my docs say PTSD is curable! I still get anxious and have anxiety at times, and some minor panic attacks, but not as often or severe. But stress really really really screws me up, about 15 months ago I noticed I was getting worst, my bipolar I believe, but I was having strange episodes I can't even explain. I get fuzzy brained and my thoughts get disorganized, and I feel like I had a stroke and I cant get words out, and I stutter, and it frustrates me, and I lose my train or thought, or just a word, it like I see a basket ball in my mind and I dont know the word, then cant explain what it is either. Well I had my first FULL manic episdoe and the VA hospitalized me, diagnosis, physchosis. Then I was convulsing too. they just said its bipolar so I started checking on sexsomnia again, it seems there is more then one kind now, ones stemming from parasomnia, klien level syndrom, and epilepsy and temporal lobe epilepsy causes sleep issues, sex orgasim jerks, mood disturbances, obsessive behavior, anxiety, sturrters, and slurred speech post seizure, and these siezures can be so tiny, no one can se them, and they can just look like I stare for a couple seconds. SO DO I HAVE NONE of those mental health issues at the top of this post, they were all mimic, because seizures created mood disturbances, and thought disorganization, for sometimes days, this would mean I have NO mental health issue, and only nuorligical issue, and not even those sleep disorders! They mental healt put me on antidepressants, and I guess your not supposed to give those to someone with a seizre disorder   sorry for my spelling, its hard for me to type words now, ive been a brain mess for a month.
    • BVA Hearing
      12 years for a BVA hearing?  That is long, even for VA.  I have been fighting 14 years, but that includes 3 trips to the BVA. 
    • Exams during flare up?
      So they would most likely assign the minimum rating for pain? And not assign a rating for range of motion effected by the flare up? 
    • Exams during flare up?
      It must be considered as part of the claim, as it could effect the rating percentage, but rarely is this done in the first examination. At least from 6 exams I have had. You usually have to fight for the secondary issues caused by a service connected injury.   JMO.
    • Exams during flare up?
      A friend of mine who is a fellow Vet were talking about the C&P process. Like me he has a lot of inflammation issues in his shoulders. I told him how the examiner asked me if I was having a flare up when she examined my knee. We both became curious if that has any effect on a rating.   So if a veteran is experiencing a flare up during a C&P exam. Does the assigned rater take that into consideration and rate it at less of a percentage based on the restriction of movement due to a flare up? Or do they rate it as scheduled no matter what?    
    • My husband died in motorcycle accident
      Page1006 I never intended to up set you in any way and I know all this has to be upsetting to you to say the least. I hope you have sent in statements like this one? for evidence of record   your lay statements will be considered. I agree with you I believe your hubby did have some type of episode just right before his Accident..Proving it will be hard.
    • VSO
      JoebobCVSO Thanks for your service to vets and your honesty about working claims when you can get to them. Frankly, no matter how good you are you needs the Vet's evidence and lots of it to convince the VA. Although many characterize them as the enemy in some cases, I see them as hero's that are working theirs tales off to help Vet's. Have I had some negative experiences with exams, claims and interactions with the VA-yes. But, although my rater did not give me all that I expected, it's on me to provide more solid and compelling evidence. I learned early on, that no one is going to care more about a Vet's claims than themselves. So, it's very important for vets to learn as much as they can about the disability process and help you to help them. Recently, I've agreed to help some relatives with their claims due to what I have learned so far and my claims success. But, many of them just want to hand a pile of medical records and be told when to wait by the mail box for a big check? Before I submitted my claim, I do a great deal of work to put the package together. The head of a VA CP Section looked at my submission packages and remarked that they were the most organized that he had seen in 25 years. I told him that I did not want to leave much to chance and that I had some one once tell me that you have to make it easy for the rater to rate in your favor. For me, my VSO was not very good but I know that their are great one out there doing their best and helping Vets. I for one want to thank you for your incite and help via this post. Can you talk about the 3  to 7 big trends or  no/no-s that are hurting vets as they submit their claims packages right now? Goodspeed Rootbeer22

What Does Ets Stand For In The Army?

11 posts in this topic

1. Can someone tell me what ETS stands for? I know it's when you get out of service but what are the actual words that start with E, T, and S? I am trying to help my shrink w/ his IMO and I remember most of the other acronyms but not ETS.

2. Just to double check, I said that EER stands for Enlisted Efficiency Report. If anyone can confirm that I would appreciate it.

Seems like the older I get the more swiss cheese my brain becomes.

Thanks for the help,

Thanks to all who replied.

I wonder if the Vietnam vets who believe it means "Estimated Time of Separation" as opposed to "Expiration of Time of Service" aren't correct for their time in service during a war with the draft in place where Uncle Sam could decide when you left so your ETS was an "estimate" vs the younger troops (like myself who served right afterwards - hey, almost 50 and in the "younger" group for a change!!) who joined the volunteer Army and had a contract end date, hence, Expiration of Time of Service, which, for us, may be equally correct. Doesn't much matter anyway since hip pocket orders have always been Uncle's option.

Again, thanks to all who replied. I appreciate the help. I figure if we can't come to a consensus here on hadit then the VA won't know the difference if I spell it out wrong and my civie shrink surely doesn't have a clue so I'll just flip a coin.

Thanks,

TS Snave
