I have been attending an online school since Dec. 8, 2009. Does anyone know how long it takes to receive the monthly stipend?

If Voc Rehab or VA Edu (Chap 35) approved you to attend , they definitely should have started sending the stipend very soon after your first semester began.

Have you contacted the veteran's counselor at your online school?

My daughter started Nov 2010 and finally got a check last week...she is Chapter 35. She is attending AMU per recommendations viewed here from Berta. The cost was also the least amount too. Hope the holidays didn't hold up your funds too much.

WOW that is GREAT news Halos!

Almost all but one of my professors were military officers, some retired and some still active duty.All my other class students were military.

She might have to start out with their RQ course.

This course is designed to hone in on internet skills for AMUs thesis preparations and possible Power Point homework.

I earned a Certificate in Military Studies from AMU as well as my AMU degree with Honors.

I am considering a return to AMU as I sure miss it.

If she gets Major Gudmundson he is as tough as nails and I LOVE him.He called me from Quantico from time to time regarding my homework assignments and also he called or emailed once or twice from Okinawa.

He is still active duty. His brother appears on the Military Channel often and is writer who did a great work on Trench warfare during WWI.

They have all sorts of courses and degree programs so maybe she is not warfare student like I was and I hope she enjoys AMU!

I think Theresa was my VA counselor at AMU and I hope USMC or MCA can give her a book grant.

This is a fabulous university!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I miss it so much----------------One of the professors there uses with my permission one or two of my essays or thesis for a student guide on how to prepare the written work and write a good essay.

    • I was rated at 10% for tinnitus last year by the VA. I went to my private doctor yesterday and I described to him the problems that I have been having with my sense of balance. Any sudden movement of my head or movement while sitting in my desk chair causes me to lose my balance and become nauseous. Also when seeing TV if there are certain scenes,such as movement across or up and down the screen my balance is affected. The doctor said that what is causing the problem is Meniere's Disease. Does any know if this could be secondary to tinnitus and if it would be rated separately from the tinnitus? If I am already rated at 10% for tinnitus and I could filed for Meniere's does any one know what it might be rated at? Thanks for your help. 68mustang

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67. 
    • If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.
