    • Thanks for the advice. I have scanned every document I have.  The secretary of one Dr. told me she was surprised at the amount of records I had provided.  She said they normally don't get anywhere near that much. Right now just trying to get the missing pieces I need to have a rock solid case (IMO/Nexus, C-file, ...) Sent an email to my senator to see what help I can get from him (it is an election year). I am just hoping I can get everything together in time.  Like I said my VSO didn't do me any favors by sending off my claim the way he did. But on the flip side it has forced me to learn a whole lot more than I did 20 years ago when this whole mess was created.  Not that it would have mattered 20 years ago.  I probably would have just now been getting to the end of the appeal process. Now I know a lot more and will hopefully avoid some of the pit falls that I have seen other fall into while trying to navigate the system.  
    • When I got to the Hospital I informed them was from out of town, 9 or 10 PM, and that I was a VA patient and presented my VA health care card.  When I received my bill I was informed that the hospital had my insurance down as tricare (whole different insurance), how they got that I don't know as they made copies of my VA card.  I probably screwed up by not contacting the VA myself after I was released, didn't spend the night and was released late that night.  Contacting the VA was the last thought in my mind as I had to travel the following two days.  It is not a giant bill but I don't feel like I should get stuck with it either.  This is just a pain in the ass.  So far I haven't been sent to collections as I contact the billing agency each time I get a bill (every 3-4 months) and they attempt to rectify the situation, I am just ready for an answer.  In my home state WA I am covered under insurance from my wife's work as well but it does not offer coverage outside of the PNW.  Thanks all for the help, now time to call some of these numbers....again
    • Update..  Sent nod on 23Jun16 with nme in the form of spouse statement, buddy (sworn) statement and my own statement of facts.      Now awaiting DRO "DeNovo" Review.  
    • Update 7/26, I got an email reply from the IRIS inquiry I submitted about the date changes, and this is the paragraph about the current status:   Your claim is pending final review. VA will process the decision, review it for accuracy, and notify you by mail. Your claim's status may change if additional information is required. Please understand that the time your claim takes to complete is based on the specifics of your claim and VA's pending workload.
        eBennies still says "preparation for decision".
    • once it goes to closed, look on ebenefits and read your ab8 letter- the one that details your rating. you will also see in there your rating listed, off in the side bar iirc. after your claim closes wait a few days before reading  your ab8 since it needs to be updated too and i speculate that it is in a different part of the system.

To anyone visiting....

This is a work in progress. It will take a little while since I have a WHOLE BUNCH to input.

Keep checking back to see what is happening.

I will be posting an Index so specific letters should be easier to find.

Have patience. :)

Tbird and I are working in tandem to post these letters. Sometimes there will be no links OR the document because we are each doing different aspects to create a whole.

Please keep checking back and don't worry if it isn't there. If it is posted as a topic, eventually it will be available.

This includes the index also.

IF A TOPIC HAS THE WORDS "WORK IN PROGRESS" IN THE TITLE, THEN THAT TOPIC IS NOT FUNCTIONING YET.

WHEN THE TOPIC IS VIABLE, THOSE WORDS WILL DISAPPEAR.

Just had a thought......

Until these letters in this forum are up and running, if you really need to read them, all but two minor ones are posted on the Veterans Benefits Network site. It, too, has an index with where located in the topic.

Here's the topic:

I wish you good journey.

IT'S DONE!

Tbird has worked her MAGIC! She has turned, for the most part, the letters/directives/whatevers into PDF files. (There are some that a pdf might not be necessary.)

This means that you, the viewer, can download, print out, copy or whatever necessary to use for your own personal viewing.

SHE DID A FANTASTIC JOB!

As of now, the Index is linked to the individual topics.

ANYWAY, enjoy and may it help you on your journey through the 'undiscover'd country.'

The following is the index with links to the various Training and Fast Letters plus a few miscellaneous. These letters are not necessarily in the original formatting. I have tried to present them in an easy-to-read form instead of some forms as originally presented. Some of the paragraphs were WAAAAYYY too long. lol - HadIt.com Member fanaticbooks

Something to be aware....

Some of these letters may be rescinded, outdated, or otherwise no longer viable. I have still included them because sometimes they provide additional insight or just plain more information than the newest version.

Use them wisely.

The oldest letters will display at the bottom with the latest letters displayed at the top, all in sequential numbers.

Coding of the letters...

FL = Fast Letter

TL = Training Letter

First two numbers = last two digits of year of origin

WOW-this is GREAT- Thank you Tbird and Fantasticbooks for all the work you both did here!!!!

The first one I read regarded the Hupp decisions for survivors claims.

VA failed to address this important court decision and even the proper VCAA format for my 2003 claim-

my evidence rendered their legal VCAA error moot but still many widows,getting the same illegal VCAA letter I got, would not have any idea of what to send VA as evidence.

Every time they fail to apply these fast letters to claims they should be applied to -they are knowingly setting the stage for a denial.

This list is Wonderful!

I have sent them their own fast letters as evidence from time to time.

I am sure the Bradley Fast letter is here- another VERY important one.

(TDIU plus 60 % additional independent disability equals SMC.)
