    • Buck, a good friend (69) of mine just got the Bad News that his Prostate Cancer (Treated with radiation) back in late 2008/09, which had resurfaced with elevated PSA Readings of 10, in early 14 and had been treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy (Estrogen Shots with all the side affects) has now Metastasized to his Bones. Starting Chemo next week, prognosis, not the best. The primary reason he didn't have the Prostate/Seminal Vessel Removal Surgery, was fear of incontinence & ED. Not sure about the incontinence but I know he had trouble all along with ED. A Nam Vet buddy of mine, long time ED DX, swears by the "Pump." Be very careful regarding any Hormone Replacement Therapy. What was your last PSA reading? Semper Fi  
    • So far, no back pay has come in. We downloaded his benefits form and this is what it states:  Gross Benefit Amount:  836.13 Net amount paid:  0.00 Effective date: Sept. 01, 2016 Combined Evaluation:  50 percent His case closed on 9/22/2016. We are a little confused on the effective date. He submitted his claim some time in June, 2016.  That included a form from his sleep study done with the VA while active duty that stated he had severe sleep apnea. So he already had a diagnosis on file from active duty. He was not issued a machine at that time though. About a month ago he was asked to do another sleep study so they could adjust settings on cpap/bipap machine to issue it to him. He did that and picked up his Bipap machine about 2 weeks ago.  Would that have anything to do with his effective date being later than when he filed? He did already have a service related rating of 0% related to heart problems that he will be appealing later on ( one thing at a time right now).  So the sleep apnea was the only open case.  Can anyone let me know when he should be expecting his pay to start and also, because of the effective date.. would he be getting backpay? Thank you!
    • This examiner wasn't even a Dr.!!! She was a RN.  As far as the decision on my hip, I never even had a C&P for it. The rater just denied me even though i had my PCP write me a letter stating the the hip DJD was more than likely because of a documented auto accident i had while in service! I'm going to NOD on both the back because of the conflicting evidence from the C&P nurse and the rater and the hip because of the letter and the auto accident in my service medical records!  
    • Congrats. Way to hang in there.  Good luck to you and yours.  
    • This is wonderful news! But you are right-money cannot really ever compensate trauma and the term "in harm's way" can involve many horrible situations in service.( or even at the VAMCs-as I well know) I hope you have some sort of peace and closure to this ,FN and that you can enjoy this victory and true recognition of what you went through. And please don't hesitate to help others with similar claims. Encouragement goes a long way and your award is an encouragement to others,even regardless of the type of claim they have , with the VA. Nothing is impossible.

Camp Lejeune Water Survivors

15 posts in this topic

Fellow Vets:

Has anyone that was stationed on Camp LeJeune NC prior to 1983 claimed to VA for the water poisoning situation there and the aftermath???

What was the approach?? Is there a sure shot strategy??

I heard a lots of Vets that used to be stationed there are filing a Form 95 with the dept of justice, I believe VA is as responsible, I would like to hear your opinion.

Is anyone aware of this??? This as I see it is mass killing of our Honorable Servicemen and more importantly their Families..

Will this go un-punished???

Any Information in this regards will be highly appreciated.

Yes I was stationed there from 1981-1984. I have filed form 95 and the Department of Justice frowarded the claim to the Department of the Navy. I have received reply from Dept. Of Navy and They want me to send in all medical records that I have to support my lawsuit. I am now in the process of hiring a lawyer to work the lawsuit.
