  2. Greetings Has anyone on the site applied or attempted to apply for the HUD-VASH program? Were you successful? Female veterans and veterans with families, have you applied for these services and were denied? Has anyone had any success with this program?

  5. Peace and wellness Ms. Berta Congrats! You are the wind beneath many of our wings and it's great news to hear that your case was won! Now if we could just get you appointed to the Supreme Court....(smile) Your husband served with Honor and you serve with HONOR! I salute you!
  6. Does anyone have Dr. Whitely mailing address? If so would you be so kind as to send it to me? This lie that they (DOD/VA) are telling that makes it seem that most if not all of the rape cases in the military are alcohol related needs to stopped, put down. and we can all attend the memorial service! The campaign should say: If you rape you are setting yourself up for a date with the electric chair!
  7. Peace and Wellness Wings Thank you. I apologize for the mistake. I thought that I had sent you PM as message as well, perhaps that message did not post. I instant messaged (PM) you primary because of the women veteran issues that I was addressing. I will respect your wishes by not instant messaging (PM) you again. Respectfully, please be advised that I have been a subscriber to this forum for many years, long before you and I say this free of disrespect and with the upmost humility. I was under the impression that it was okay to ask for ideas. I was not asking you to do my homework, legwork, etc. I just wanted to learn new ideas. Over the years, I have learned so much from the vets on this site as well as other similar sites. We all are "Warriors without Weapons." All we have is each other. In closing, no veteran on this site has ever given me any wrong ideas and or suggestions. (Those that know me know that I research the research!) I cannot say the same for the VSO's, VA employees etc. Additionally, I could never become upset, with another vet who offered their conversation and a few kind words of encouragement. We are all disabled! All of us are fighting against the same system that has no LOVE for any of US! I tried to send this to you for your eyes only but it was blocked.

    [[Template core/front/global/prefix is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme.]] Help Needed Bva Hearing Next Month

    Peace and wellness My case is finally going to the BVA next month. I could really need some help with obtaining a template of how to prepare my brief that will get me what I need. I would appreciate your and any of the other hadits members help. The issues of the appeal that I need the most help with are worsening of condition for ptsd, major depression,anxiety, and the reduction of 100% P&T, and unempoyability. If I could get the template/guide I could use it to apply to the other issues on appeal. If you can assist me contact me through my email here and or my email address. Also, I have a couple of questions 1. I have 5 appeals that were supposed to be sent to the BVA. In October 2008. I received a letter from the VA saying that I did not have any appeals on file. I have proof that the VA received all of the appeals because I either sent them via certified return receipt mail, or I took them in person and had them hand stamped by the VA. Jan 6, I received a letter from the RO that my file was being sent to the BVA and all of my prior cases had been closed. They are trying to say that I didnt file any previous appeals but this is not true because I have copies of them.Now I received a statement of the case in August 2008 denying all of the issues that had been denied in 2004, when I filed my original claim.For the past four years, they have continously sent me back for C*P for the same issues from the original claim that they have continously denied for over 4 years. All of which I filed appeals. How did the BVA certify my appeal and not see that and question it? 2. I received the 90 day letter Letter of certification from the VA that my appeal was being sent to the BVA on Jan 6, 2009. I recevied the letter from the BVA in DC telling me that they received my appeal from the RO and on Jan.29,2009(postmarked)that my BVA hearing is scheduled for the March 18, 2009. Is that fast are what? My regional office never gave me any notification that my case was in the process of being certifieed. I wrote letters on all of my appeals that I wanted to review my claim before they sent them forward this did not happen. If I understand the regulations, my POA, attorney, and or in this case me should have received written notifuacation(at least 20 days) to review the claim. The VBA M21-1 MR states that they have 10 days and if no reply then forward a second notice and if no notice send the appeal forward. Please correct me if I am wrong. This did not happen. THE SINISTER PART IS THAT THEY WROTE ME A LETTER IN OCTOBER 2008, AFTER THEY RECIVED YET ANOTHER APPEAL FOR THE AUGUST 2008 SOC FOR THE SAME ISSUES THAT HAVE BEEN ON APPEAL SINCE 2004 AND THEY WROTE ME A LETTER SAYING THAT I DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING ON APPEAL. NOW ACCORDING TO THE AUDGUST DENIAL LETTER, I WOULD HAVE 1 YEAR TO SEND NEW EVIDENCE, ETC. I SENT A APPEAL SO THEY SHOULD HAVE SENT THAT APPEAL TO THE BVA AS WELL. NOW HOW CAN I STILL HAVE TIME ON THE CLOCK FOR FILING ADDITIONAL INFO ON THE AUG STATEMENT OF THE CASE, HAVE NO APPEALS PENDING, AND RECIEVE A LETTER FROM THE RO AND THE BVA THAT MY APPEAL(That the RO says doesnt exsit and my case is closed) and have a BVA hearing next month. Please forgive me using caps. My eyesight is bad. B) Your assistance would be greatly appreciated Thanks Ladypoetry
  9. They didnt bury the body! They just shredded it and sold it back to the guverment to be recyled into paper. Who in turn sent some of the paper to the tresuary department to make new money and the rest they sold to Charman to make toilet paper.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done." B) B) B) B) B)

    [[Template core/front/global/prefix is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme.]] Helping A Veterans

    Hey Sportfans Does anyone know if the clevelend ohio VA is a member of theShredders Inc? Does anyone have any info on the Tiger Team VA Processing unit? My claim which was supposed to be sent to the DC Board of Veteran Appeals was sent to Ohio. They denied my claim. Okay sportfans, here is the real kicker so I would advise anyone standng to sit down because this is sure to knock you down and drag you across the floor. They said that my claim was a reopened claim. No it wasnt. If they read my c-files they would have known that this was an appeal to the VA Board of Veteran Appeals. I guess they didnt see all of the VA form 9/VA appeal to the board of veterans affairs. Secondly, I guess they also didnt see the appeals paperwork contesting the illegal reduction of my 100% PT that was originally AWARDED AS A CUE BECAUSE THE VA MADE A ENTIRE ISLAND THE SIZE OF TEXAS, mistakes when they awarded it in 2004 and reduced in 2006 due to an alleged CUE because the same VA that gave it to me now stated that they made a cue in awarding me the 100% despite the evidence that said I was still eligable for the award due to my being unable to obtain and maintain employment. I do believe that Jethro Modine, Barney,and the average 5th grader could have done a bette job in the proper adjudication of my claim! The VA ia one of few employers that pays their employees to make mistakes.
  13. Hey Sportsfans It is obvious that the folks at the VA cannot count unless they are cutting the benefits of veterans. We ALL KNOW WHAT THE VA'S IDEA OF A COUPLE MEANS. They said that only a few, couple some,etc when the lied about the number of homeless veterans, they said there was only a slight increase in the suicide rates of veterans, They said the same thing when asked how many veterans were adversly affected by some of the medication that has and continued to be administered to veterans with mental illness. So congress should make sure that a real headcount is given when they fire and send to JAIL THOSE RESPONDSIBLE FOR THIS MESS! I saw on the food channel that a large fruit company labels, counts and takes a picture of each grapefruit before they are packed and sent out for distribution. If a fruit company can track a piece of grapefruit surely the VA can do a better job than what it is doing :P B) :P

    Hey Sportsfans! I would like to offer my 2cents if I may. Tread very carefully. I was awarded 100%P&T in 2004. I had other issues I was appealing, one of which was an earlier effective date. Now this should have been easy because I was awarded the 100% as a result of a CUE/VA's fault. I was reduced in 2006 back to the 60% that was awarded to me when I was medically retired from the Army. Yes I know that this was a illegal act on the part of the VA but it still happened. I filed a appeal/form 9/BVA request in 2006, and the VA has refused to forward it up to the BVA! This sort of thing happens to women veterans all of the time! esp if it was awarded for PTSD/Depression/Anxiety due to MST! As a result of the VA illegal actions, I am about to become homeless. I have a family and severe PTSD, Major Depression, Anxiety, Ankying(sp) Spondylosis of the spine, arthritis of the knees, sc for leftankles,left wrist back, severe asthma, migrane headaches SLE,and a host of other medical issues. I have severe mobility and use a electric scooter to get around and a cane. So please be careful.
  15. Berta, Yes its been a long time since I posted. I have been in VA hell and well I am still afighting. In regards to getting in touch with Jim about MST related issues. Do I write him on-line,send it by snailmail or what? How do I get the snailmail address? I would like to talk to the guy Ineed help really bad. Please help if you can. I am they female vet who lost her 100% P&T two years ago because she went forward with her other appeals and they took everything back. You and the guys on hadit helped me. I have been around for a long-time way back in the day since about 1995 anyway......please help if you can. thanks. sorry for the big letters my eyes are bad! B)
