  2. (Is there a way for me to compel the RO to read the evidence they ignored and have them issue a Supplemental Statement of the Case (SSOC)? ) Yes! If you don't have an attorney working your case, hire one is my best advice.

  4. When Veterans commit fraud, it's punishable by fine and or imprisonment. When a VA employee commits fraud, it's called an error. If VA employees received legal prosecution for fraud there would be very few claims on backlogs.
  5. Twelve years later, the CAVC finally read evidence I submitted the VARO has completely ignored. Case was remanded back to the BVA in 2010, with instructions to actually read it this time or explain why they can't. My guess is I may recieve yet another SOC by the BVA in 2014. Expect it to go back to the CAVC after that. Not convinced raters can read unless its to stall a claim.

  9. FW: Medicare, Part B Premium for 2012 Partial reprint: http://www.factcheck.org/2011/04/premium-nonsense-on-medicare/ This widely circulating message is similar to a falsehood-filled screed that went around last year, urging "retribution" against members of Congress in the 2010 midterm elections. This message makes somewhat different accusations — also false — and urges voters to "remember" in November 2012. § It falsely claims "Congress gave themselves a $3,000 a month Cost of Living Adjustment," when the truth is that Congress voted to deny itself any pay increase at all, both fo

The conditions include certain cancers, adult brain disorders, a num
  15. SP4RVN1971 I tried for over 25 yrs to get my records from the VA. Their advice was to get them from the NARA. Somewhere around 2000 I find out the NARA permanantly "loaned" all my records to the local VARO in the 1970's. I recieved only a few pages, but enough to prove injuries. You have to request "ALL" military records to include "ALL" medical treatment records. Make sure to include dates in country and your unit or ship. Don't expect to recieve all of them though. Seems some of them end up in the shredder.
