Thats great, thanks Berta. I hope that VA will try to find all these Vet's that serve in Thailand. But I know they will do their best to hide this!

Thanks Berta. If I read the bulletin correctly my diabetes claim which I originally filed in Feb of 2008 then reopened in Oct of 2009 if approved by the VA will have an effective date of Feb 2008 and not Oct 2009.

Kurt has been a great help to us Thailand vets, I talked with him a couple of years ago and he really helped me after my original claim for DMII and heart problems was denied in 2008. I reopened my DMII claim in 2009 with all the information that Kurt has up on the net and the VA denied to claim in 2010, ignoring all of the evidence that I submitted and claiming that herbicides were never use in Thailand, I appealed last August resubmitting everything that I had sent in 2009 along with the copy of the May 2010 bulletin. When the VA added IHD in 2009 I reopened my heart claim. I'm still waiting to hear on that claim. According to "Peggy" the IHD claim was closed Apr of 2011 but I haven't heard anything yet, I also have an appeal on my knees going since 2009. If they ever decide to grant sc for the IHD that may also go back to 2008.

Berta, I want to thank you for all the help and encouragement you have given us especially myself.
