  2. AS the bird flys rule has been brought up here on hadit recently. Doesn't matter how old the meeting is. i hope this can also apply to travel expenses.
  3. http://www.veterans.senate.gov/hearings/legislative-presentation-of-veterans-of-foreign-wars03042015 First time we are all on the same page..... Good hearing.
  4. passs it on cards

  5. This is why Hadit has always suggested sending copies in as evidence. You must keep the originals always and forever.
  6. Went to my civilian chemo dogtor today. i asked him if my problem could be related to certain chemical exposures. he started in on how much tax payers are paying for VA servicess. i told him that isn't he happy about his money is safe in a bank and protected by military people. I found out that it would be first most important to get a diagnosis and then worry about connecting to current conditions when that VA wording could be brought up.
  7. I had a BVA telecoference. The judge was waiting for lunch and I saw him standing there with his elbow on the top of my c-file resting. The c-file was at least 3" tall. I could hardly believe that there was that much evidence although I am sure some was duplicate. Your benefits are there for you, take what is yours.
  8. I had carpel tunnel about 12 year ago. All went well. As you get older and more use to it things kind of change a litttle. Needs change
  9. I had a stroke while using my cpap and this hass made me reluctent about using it again. I had stroke #6 this last weekend and things don't seem to be looking up. Chemo has caused gout/ Gout is like having hot sand in you knees and joints.....it is no fun.
  10. yes, it is pain two ask someonre their federal ID number etc., but this can be done ok.
