  1. Back to April 20, 2007 , I got out after 4 years' in 1973.
  2. Hi All, Just check ebnnies and my rate went from 10% to 60%. I want to thank you all for your help during this process. I haven't rec'd the BWE( I've waited 8 years to say that), it looks like retro on ebenies. My question is: I noticed that my spouse was not included in my monthly amount? Is this common when you go from the lower rates to rates where spouses are included. Do I have to point her out somehow? Thanks again, RickH
  3. Hi all Great topic!! What's the best way to fix these errors without losing the effective date? Or a lot of time? RickH
  4. What I'm saying, is the BVA pulling a fast one on me, and giving me a service connection for cancer that is already cured without granting the secondarys I filed for in my original claim?? Does the VLJ have to grant service connection for the secondaries also, or does the regional office just go to rating the secondaries on their own from the original claim? RickH
  5. I noded the part of the claim that was denied ,residuals of prostate cancer(ED, Incontinence) in 2007. My grant for service connection was for prostate cancer, but no where in the BVA letter did it mention my Secondarys or my residuals. Will I be still rated for my residuals, or will I be just rated 0% because my cancer is gone. Am I being paranoid? won"t the rater just go to the above ASKNOD rules ang\d give me my rate and SMC-K. RickH

    congrats!!!! RickH
  7. JON, I'm past all that, this was an appeal decision after my BVA hearing with a VLJ. My original claim(2007) was asking for the residuals you mentioned. RickH
  8. Start by searching the court of veterans appeal decisions with fort knox or Baumholder. Also see if Ft. Knox is on the EPA list of super sites, find a list of all the chemicals that you hubby used in his day to day maint on the job, there might be a way in there also. I take it you havn't filed a claim yet? You might want to start with a good veterans Disb. Attorney also. Good luck, RickH
  9. I'm just worried that they will give me a 0% because the cancer is now gone, now that the prostate is gone, and the VLG never mentioned my secondarys. RickH
  10. Hi all Got the BVA letter yesterday, it stated that because of the new probative evidence(IMO-IME) that exposure to work place chemicals was evident and my service connection for prostate cancer was warranted and granted. In my original claim, I had filed for Prostate cancer residules, but no where in the letter does it talk about residules or secondaries. I had my prostate removed in 2001, my original claim was filed in 2007. Will the rater at the RO know enough to go to the secondaries on the DBQ that their doc filled out at my C and P, or will I have NOD them to it? I can't scan copies because I' m in FLA visiting friends for the next 4 weeks, my granddaughter read me the letters. Thanks, RickH Am I being paranoid??
  11. Rude1122,If you doctors won't give you a nexus, find one who will, and take it with you to the DRO hearing. You will keep banging them(the V/A) but still get denied(like I did for 8years) until you do. RickH

    To get to the Gompers you would have to have boots on ground even if the Gompers was in the harbor you would have to take a motor whale boat out to the Gompers and board. Then you would be logged in at the Quarterdeck by the P.O. of the watch and you can show that you had to be boots on ground that way. RickH

    I think all of the deck logs are at the Navy Lib at Washington Navy Yard. They might even be internet access. I stood P.O of the watch on tenders and you would be in the Quarterdeck log.
  14. I called a rep and she told me it was "favorable" and the letter is on its way. RickH
