    This could happen to you

    I am not aware of this presumption, and have never heard of it. Can you point it’s authority out? I’d like to look it up, but I have PTSD, and permanent physical brain damage. You said it was a new presumption, right? I had a stroke in service from malaria, but they have buried the evidence and only a lawyer can get the records in a malpractice suit, from what I understand. Can you point out that authority, regulation, or where I can find it....Thanks vr

    Solo, what presumption would that be? You have your records because you were only in one place, but i’m afraid you lost me. What presumption would apply to you? Yes, I have bills too, and always had to pay every one myself. The VA doesn’t communicate very well. They send forms. What presumption are you talking about?

    This could happen to you

    Yes, you are right. I meant “file a claim on duty” to begin disability the day after discharge, “not sue the Army”. It was all planned and controlled and it’s worked. It is now at my life’s end, and they have “skated from all responsibilities since June 1971 to March 2015 without it casting them a cent, but cost me everything.” 44/45 years at ZERO, and the last three at partial disability. Then any retro is paid at the old rates, further screwing you, which is totally immoral, but doesn’t make one bit of difference to the VA. You know that yourself. SUICIDE IS A BETTER OPTION FOR MANY, and I totally get it. It’s hard for the victims of military abuse of power to deal with, as much or more than rape IMO. They can’t handle the knowledge they found. They finally see the truth and it’s too much. Yes, I did want 100% benefits with 100% retro pay as a minimum, but I want my kids paid for every dime and every benefit they were screwed out of growing up not the 1972 rate. I’m dead and I know it. I will never see any of this, but there are people that will, that have POA TO OVERSEE this out. I didn’t want anything other than fair honest treatment, as I told (her), but I see that’s not going to happen. I’m tired of trying to get honestly out of the VA. They know who deserves what, down to the sent. They know everything including the brain damage and the causes for everything else vr

    Solo. That shows there is every reason and every motive for the VA to fight against all the presumptive conditions it can for as long as it can. The government should not be policing itself. We don’t let prisoners run the cell blocks, or do we? Spoliation of evidence is a big NO-NO. I received a ram-rod Medical Board (it was a medical board or sorts I presume), and if I had known their was going to be any boards, what the board was for, when it was going to be, what they were looking for, if it was punitive or medical, if I needed anything to prepare, if there was options available, if I was entitled to any discovery, any legal assistance (a PEBLO), records to review as what was being said about my conditions. I did not know anything, just like the Army had planned. 47 years of retro pay would be pennies on the dollar, and another slap in the face. I did nothing to receive such treatment. I ingested Agent Orange daily, was eaten alive by drug resistant plasmodium falciparum carrying mosquitos (a Tropical Disease), and received a big injection in the rear of an unknown chemical that’s never mentioned. That’s three reasons I may have developed a need for hospitalization. Two of those are bad, no doubt. The injection may have been the worse. I know how it works. You can’t decide the VA owes you for back benefits when you didn’t even complain in service or ever have an issue and now 47 years later you start having chest pains so you go down and file for heart disease after being diagnosed, and expect benefits retroactive. I get it, but what we have here is a failure to communicate. I developed many conditions in Vietnam, a place I would not normally visit. I became ill with permanent limitations to everything in my being (look up P-3 profile physical capacity and stamina). I complained in 1971. I was sent “ HOME AWAITING ORDERS “, and there is only one reason the military uses that term, as opposed to furlowe, recovery time, leave of absence, vacation, and it because the service member is going to be separated from military service period. Medical retirement if 30% disabled or more and over six months active duty, with permanent disabilities. I was all that and it got worse. There’s a regulation that talks aboutgoing back to the day following the Evacuation. The Army avoids that by hiding the evidence, telling you it’s lost, destroyed, burned up in a fire(s), etc. 47 years of retro pay would be nice, but reimbursements for all benefits lost and all costs associated would be nicer. If the pain and suffering was experienced by the DRO’s they would give all that 10 times over and be happy to do it. vr

    Solo. We are talking about two different conditions here and getting them confused. While I was in Vietnam on active duty, I broke out with acne, urinated blood, liver out of whack, irrational heart rates, respiratory issues, endocrine issues, blood coagulation problems, back problems, bone problems, abdominal problems, migraines (stroke), prostate problems, Rheumatic Fever, undetermined organisms in lungs in lungs and blood, swollen lower extremities upper extremities, ALL WHILE ON DUTY. I am not just now claiming these things. I was hospitalized for them in another country while serving, and more conditions developed as a result of exposure to unknown. It was known in 1971 that I was ill due to service in Vietnam, and I was still on duty, but not given any records. I was seen in the service for what are now presumptive conditions. I was directly service connected with disabilities, regardless whether Agent Orange exists now or ever did. I am not necessarily presumptive, but completely directly service connected. The presumptive connection is a back up for those in doubt with ZERO evidence of illness, injury, or disease, while serving in the military. I don’t need the presumptive law to prove direct in service disabilities, do I, if I have in service evidence??? There is no fake evidence used here and that is the lamest argument the VA could possibly use. They did have doubt of a few documents, but I was the one complaining about them. They complained after I had to point them out. They all were all in the VA’s favor having no form numbers, no signatures, no dates. I pointed the defects out to the VA and they agreed, but they are the one that sent them to me. They verified the alteration of their own evidence they were using. It’s s been a dirty job, and makes VA employees turn whistle blowers, because there are good people working there. The more numb they become to the truth, the higher up the money tree they can climb. Do you see the difference in my case and a Vietnam Vet just now having problems and using presumptive law? The Army treated me in Vietnam and all the time after Vietnam til Discharged for Permanent conditions regardless of Agent Orange being destructive or deadly. I ingested something that was deadly, no matter what it was, and it ruined me while on duty. Does it make more sense? PS. I want to correct something I said last night because I was tired not thinking right. I was talking about filing a claim for disability while still on duty, butvwas using the term “suing” while on active duty. Active duty can not sue as far as I know either, but they can file a claim, “ if they have evidence”! If you have no evidence of it happening in service, you are screwed. The Army made sure I was screwed, then the VA made sure I’d it. I’m glad they didn’t put a hit on me, but now I don’t care. I wish they would to prove it all being true. Victor ray

    Yep, that settlement was before Nehmer, before the presumptives. The scientific evidence and the medical records from Vietnam are the ones I got from NARA. I got a few from NPRC, and some from the VA. I would have filed for disability while on duty, and you could do that, but the Army would not give me the records. They said they were lost, but they weren’t. They never were. YES, they can do anything they want to do. They can go back 80 years for the veteran, and at least legal age for children, and longer depending on the child’s disability. The VA is the most powerful agency in the world. there is only a couple reasons I didn’t get disability the day after discharge. The Army, the DoD, and the VA. All withholding the evidence. That’s it. I lost a hell of a lot more than 47 years of disability. I paid for the insurance premiums, the medicine, the out of pocket cost for deductibles, medicine, hospitals, doctors, and you know what? I nearly died several times from presumptive conditions, not to mention brain damage, strokes, GAS with Streptococcal Pharyngitis, and Tropical diseases, and much of it I have records for. They have the rest and they are sitting on it. It’s up to the VA, but they were in the wrong, and I expect they will have me dead first. I would bet on it, but I need good help, not cowards or sell outs.. vr

    I am not active duty. It doesn’t matter what I want because the VA never had any intention on granting anything at all. They have sat on my records for almost 50 (FIFTY) years, they told me they were lost, they ignored 20 FOIA Requests, blamed my conditions on syphilis but their own tests showed negative every time. They did not do anything to help my Respiratory infections or Group A Streptococcus with Pharyngitis which is Rheumatic Fever and when you have that, the URI, the GAS with Pharyngitis, and prostatitis when covered with mosquito bites, pain behind the eyes with parasites in them, you can almost bet it’s malaria, especially when the urine is bloody and the liver is out of whack, diarrhea, blood dots are all over. When you’re broke out in acne around the eyes and temples, and blistered hands with rashes all over, swollen legs ankles and arms, and inflammation with thick large wheals on your trunk, back, chest, with bone pain, leg pain, abdominal pain and cramping, it’s not Atopic Dermatitis. It may have been Agent Orange. They don’t evacuate you for dry skin, and Chloroquine wasn’t the only anti malaria drug they had, and I wasn’t allergic to it either. No, back benefits? What’s that? You mean $400 a month for 1971, $425 a month for 1972, $475 a month for 1973 and so on? That’s what they want isn’t it. Pennies on the dollar. I never got any records to sue with or even file a claim. There was a surprise board held in Alabama in July 1971, and I figured out it was a medical board when it was over. I didn’t know it was going to take place, or what I needed to do, or anything at all. Totally in the dark, and had no notice, no idea that there were any options, had no records to look at, didn’t know if it was a court marshal or a medical board, but it didn’t matter because I was uninformed and didn’t get any legal assistance or advise, and I was ill, and didn’t understand what they wanted, or what I could do about it. Turns out it was already decided what I would do. Plans were already in place and the “HOME AWAITING ORDERS “ was done and I DID NOT EVER STABILIZE. I deteriorated continuously, and all the regulations were worthless and still are in my opinion. STATUE OF LIMITATIONS? What the hell is that? When was that created? Probably in June 1971 when the Army started the one year clock, or when they gave me the benefit of doubt and allowed it not to start until April 21, 1972 when I had my first civilian day. Well I requested my records and the Army’s response was the records were lost. The VA had them in 1983 as the BVA correctly stated, but withheld them from me. According to the BVA “”THE EVIDENCE CONSIDERED AT THE TIME OF THE JUNE 1983 RATING DECISION CONSISTED OF THE VETERAN’S SERVICE TREATMENT RECORDS, AN APRIL 1983 DERMATOLOGIST’S LETTER, A VA AGENT ORANGE EXAMINATION REPORT, AND THE VETERAN’S LAY STATEMENTS. The VA established that it did have my service treatment records “in hand at that time”, yet my request for a copy was unanswered, and we both have the request. Yes, I just wanted service connection at the time and any compensation due, but the fee based dermatologist withheld information concerning my lung condition or the VA altered the report or both. Nothing is beyond belief. My requests in 2012 got no medical records, and the other 15 or 20 didn’t either. In 2015 I did finally receive some treatment records from the 21 days I was hospitalized in country on Vietnam soil, yet I need someone that saw me in the hospital, ill, while the other 2 to 3 million do not. Why is that? Why is a buddy statement considered more affirmative than the Commander of the entire medical facility’s Testimony? The largest of all our overseas medical facilities! This is the kind of stuff that makes every veteran question every word the VA prints, posts, advertises, or states in any form of media. WTH is wrong here? I have been lied to, deceived, manipulated in about every conceivable way, and run around for 50 years (for figuring purposes like the % awarded). In a few more it will be over 50, so we can round it up to 100 years, right? If nothing else, it will show what I just said about the runaround. How can the VA refuse “any medical treatment to any veteran with a condition that’s even remotely due to parasites, toxic chemicals, or unknown causes?” Justify letting a veteran’s condition(s) to deteriorate to the point of death!!! I want an answer from Sec. Robert Wilkie, from President Donald J Trump, VP Mike Pence. I just wanted what was right for myself and my family, but I can see that there is not now and never was any intention to do the right thing. The last five years (from March 2014) have been almost a waste, from the time DAV’s Dan Knabe and Joseph Braun trashed my claim to now. I have been writing for years, and it’s eaten up my life, wasting it. All of this was unnecessary, but maybe fate made this happen to open the VA’s eyes. I won’t live to see this end I am sure, but I will not sell out my family. I lost my first family and the Army caused it. I had brain damage and the Army was 100% aware, but hoped I would go off and die like an old diseased dog. Tomorrow I will send in my NOA and wait. I am done and just a lay person, not knowing what is good or what is much much better. Can you tell me? I wish I had a say so, but I never have had. This time I will. They have my phone number and I haven’t talked to anyone yet, or the VA can wait, it doesn’t matter. I am leaving some video instructions for my kids, so they aren’t lost after I pass away. victor ray PS. I sleep in sometimes because I still have sleep problems, which also started in Vietnam. I know they say I slept well in Vietnam, because we all did, like babies. I slept 20 hours a day sometimes. Thanks

    The VA is hiding the brain damage results in about every Vietnam Veteran. Every person that set foot in Vietnam or drank one cup of water from cycled Vietnam water or ocean water from 150 miles out or closer should demand an MRI. EVER VIETNAM BLUE WATER NAVY VETS should demand an MRI, or if you set foot or touched any aircraft craft carriers, destroyers, or any piece of equipment, machinery, clothing, food, medical supply, or you were married, had family, they all need an MRI. Who would believe the military. The 310 day average for a DRO , is easily twice that at minimum. The 13 to 30 months for a review is easily 5 to 7 years, 3 or 4 times what they say. They told me that Agent Orange does not cause one single disability, none. Why shouldn’t I believe them? There is no way they would ever lie. They wouldn’t inject syphilis into airmen and just let them rot in the name of science would they. They wouldn’t slip LSD to us and not tell us would they. They wouldn’t have our VSO’s threaten us would they. They wouldn’t let over 300,000 vets die waiting for resolution would they! They take care of their vets, and their offspring when they are mutated from deadly chemicals, and they keep us all informed and treat us as soon as they can, even if it takes 50 years. They would give us new brains if they could but Dioxin doesn’t cause tumors or cancers and we know this because they said so. They would not lie. victor

    Solo. They don’t destroy documents on personnel that considered casualties, or are tracked with permanent medical disabilities documented. They are kept separate from any service records and that goes for everyone. They cherry picked my medical records, which is completely obvious. The only lost records are those they want lost. I didn’t believe mine were lost in transit from Vietnam like the letter says, but when you are young, dumb, ill, and too trusting for your own good, you pay for it. Like an idiot, I believed our VA government, but just look at the DOJ, the FBI, and now the Treasury Department for what they really are. They would just as soon see you dead. They have let hundreds of thousands of Vietnam Veterans suffer and die, and we don’t know the half of it. The same people running the VA are scamming it on a daily basis, and I bet that over a million dollars a day is stolen by employees using phony accounts by those that have access to direct deposit accounts that raters set up. They called me up right after I had filed and gave me the good news that my disability ratings were being increased and I think she said the new claim or claims were approved. I said that’s great but I didn’t claim xxx and didn’t claim xxx, and had never seen a dime in compensation or pension, in fact I was denied everything including getting any records. She didn’t believe me because she was looking at her screen showing my disabilities and amount I had been receiving for YEARS. The problem is that I had never been granted any service connection at all, after spending a month in the hospital, being issued a permanent profile for permanent defects in my physical capacity and stamina, medivac’d out of Vietnam under false pretenses because they were lost for a cause of the defects, supposedly, and continuous deterioration all the time on duty after Vietnam, and decades afterwards. I think the issue is that they knew they did wrong, intentionally, and there was no doubt about it. They had no choice but to cover it up, no matter how many lies had to be told, or what had to be done. What is amazing is that if you only had 5 months, or less, why didn’t they give you a little severance settlement and out the door. You didn’t get a settlement? I have been hearing of people not even getting through Basic Training and getting 100% disability. I was 100% after Vietnam and got ZERO disability even when the Army documented it, with more than six months active Duty, with 100% Permanent Disabilities being acquired in a War Zone. How ironic! The Army really pulled the big one over on me didn’t they, and it must be the record, or one of them. Maybe the President can use my case as an example of the need for thousands of corrupt employees, especially raters and examiners, needing terminated, and replaced. Well, I hope your conditions improve, and I always thought mine would, but they didn’t. They couldn’t. Do you mind me asking what your disabilities are? Thanks victor ray PS. Yes, I did apply for “ IU” and was denied, twice. The cardiologist I went to for an evaluation saw me three or four times for a total of five or six minutes, grunted two or three times each visit, told me I am 29 times more likely to have a massive heart attack I could not survive, than anyone else, that my bones were very deteriorated and that I have degenerative bone disease so don’t fall and take vitamins D twice a day with lots of fish oil, that I have a very high calcium score, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, that I still have one carotid artery that wasn’t totally occluded, take the anticoagulant meds religiously and he was sorry about my conditions. He told the VA I had CAD, but could climb mountains, jog much as I wanted, play football, could golf all I wanted, hike, play most sports, and was basically fine. Tell me the VA didn’t own his a+s. It seems everyone the VA touches turns into a POS - LIAR, so my hope is for a large audience including our president, because Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill could not even get as many medical records as I could, and she has six offices that are staffed, and travels by private jet and limousine.

    Buck. I posted some of the records on here. Like I said, the VA acts like they don’t see them. The nurse practitioner that wrote up my exam at Excelsior Springs took the records as I handed them to her and turned them face down without losing eye contact with me. She never looked at the evidence, the records, the proof, the nexus, and it was 100% intentional. She intentionally avoided eye contact with the record, showing her intent to discredit me as presenting any evidence. This is criminal crap they are doing now. Maybe she caused the other Stroke because I was so upset at knowing she rigged the exam. Isn’t it illegal for an examiner to “fix” an exam, let alone a C & P exam (that’s nearly 50 years late)? Isn’t that racketeering to rig the outcome of a government exam to see that a veteran is denied benefits? You see Buck. You see how corrupt the VA is. What’s next? Is there anything the VA won’t do? If they can rig exams, buy lawyers, I will guarantee they can buy judges too, and probably do, way more likely than not. The VA has rigged this whole situation for 47+ years and making damn sure it can keep depriving me. My baby girl is 38 years old now, and never saw a dime in any form, no medical, no nothing, even though she inherited my conditions, the chest pains, palpitations, abdominal pain and cramping, and I bet she’s full of tumors. The CHILDREN OF MALE VIETNAM VETERANS HAVE BEEN SCREWED ENTIRELY. Yes, I need a number of attorneys at least, and probably need several complete firms I guess. The VA proves daily that we have no idea how MANIPULATED the entire disability process really is, and how phony the back log is. It is completely produced, intentionally created specifically to slow down the retro payouts and service connection. It’s unnatural for a hundred raters, DROs, attorneys and judges to look at all this mess and miss something that’s in the record and pointed out a hundred times. How can females spend less than six months in Training and get 100% disability rating? How does a vet completely denied PTSD FROM ONE RATER AND VSO then go to 100% with another VSO? Then gets a job with the VSO? Thanks Buck and wish me luck finding an attorney. I hope to find one the VA doesn’t own, one that has guts instead of feathers. victor

    Buck. this is what I don’t understand really. I don’t think proving I was sick would do anything at all because they know that already. The have every record I have. They sent me a few of them and I sent them the ones from the NPRC showing me being hospitalized from May 18 1971 in Vietnam to Release from GLNavy Hospital on June 14 1971 (28 days straight) then again in January 1972 and Feb 1972, besides clinic visits. They know I was sick. they have records from the 3rd Field Hospital Saigon, the 3rd Surgical Hospital Bien Thuy Vietnam , the 24th Evacuation Hospital, Long Binh Vietnam, Yokota Airbase Hospital Yokota Japan with lab and test results are all missing, the Great Lakes Naval Hospital, and the RSA (Redstone Army Hospital. It is so pathetic that the VA don’t trust their own doctors, isn’t it? I mean really, isn’t it pathetic? Do they think I forged them? I would have to know a gazillion things to pull that off, and if I was that smart I would own our defense system and lease it to America, when I wasn’t busy running GOOGLE. Simply astonishing, and they thought us vets were the paranoid ones. We are the only ones telling the truth it seems. Maybe I do have a few friends that saw me in the hospital that I was lucky enough to run into in Long Binh and Saigon. General Patton’s granddaughter was in Chicago, but she’s busy in Ireland I think. I had a buddy in Alabama that took an RPG THROUGH THE MOUTH” in Vietnam and he got denied too. The lawyers can dig these guys up and it would be good to see them, and he can bill the VA for their flight and other expense. There’s one that would remember me 100%, still in my hospital gown, and he said he saw guys in the bush with my condition often, but this was just before I was headed for Japan in my baby blues and flip flops. He didn’t see the swollen limbs and ankles, bloody urine, the pains in the bones, acne, abdominal pain, my lab results because I never saw them and never told about them. I would only bring these guys out in a trial, and only because the VA has gone insane with an obsession in proving it is above all authority on earth given to mankind. They have already proven that the FOIAs do not apply to the VA, and have proven that I have already lost. It is not possible for me to get the 47+ years that we’re lost back, but maybe my living offspring won’t lose. they want 6K for an add, but an interview is free, but yes, I need to send the NOA off Monday, and try to figure out why they don’t believe their own people. They don’t trust themselves, and probably the people they sleep with and work with. Not their own parents or children. I thought my life had been screwed up, but I have hope, and they have nothing. thanks Buck. victor ray

    Buck, I’m a deadman walking, but I appreciate your encouragement. I have already lost, so what happens from here on out is what ever the VA wants it to be, and I’m sure they have already informed everyone that needs to know what the result will be. It was all figured out 47.5 years ago what it would be, depending on how long I survived, and should have expired by now. I bet they are disappointed, but they still win. Every year the retro pay is worth less and less. In 1971 a Z28 Cameron was $5100, with the options and a monster 402 cu., poi’s rear, and today it’s about $70K. 14 times increase so basically today’s money is worth 1/14th of what it was in 1971. The VA makes a killing treating vets like this, paying them with a fraction of what’s fair. Veterans always lose, “ALWAYS LOSE, and can not win, not yet!. i think if anything, the bare minimum should go back uptown the day I left Vietnam, every benefit my kids lost out on, reembursement for every cent we spent that the VA should have paid for, and some extra, for all damages, pain & suffering, and extra for it all being intentional. thats the way I feel, but we will see if any firm has any guts or are hooked to puppet strings. Thanks Buck. victor ray

    Solo. yes, I am still at 90% and have been for about four months, I think it is. They put me there before the BVA denied everything except a “0% SC Award” for atopic dermatitis that BEGAN IN VIETNAM, which they denied knowing about for 47 years-2 months-14 days. The government documented it and dozens of raters in St. Louis, Atlanta, Omaha, Waco Texas, and Washington DC looked at, while the DRO in St. Louis thought about it, and the Disability Board looked at in 1983, and not one VA employee realized that The Atopic Dermatitis that began in Vietnam continues today. What, 30 to 50 of the finest and brightest think it cleared itself up I guess. Didn’t any of the lawyers see it even after I pointed it out hundreds of times? It’s these kind of life altering fibs that destroyed my life and family while they all have drinks and discuss how they F’d me over. What a bunch of POS. I have been totally disabled with Social Security for almost nine years, following a bad stroke. That’s when they discovered my left carotid artery was completely and severely blocked and inoperable. A very old blockage extending from my neck deep into the skull. I didn’t realize I had also had a stroke at 19years old while on duty at Redstone Arsenal Alabama, five or six months after battling malaria or the chemical used to experiment on me with. Direct Dioxin injection I guess to make sure I was a good little control subject for the next year, unless I died on duty. When they scanned my brain during another stroke, they found an old basal ganglia infarction. It was almost forty seven years old, about the same as the left anterior carotid artery’s age. A lot of coincidences, diseases, and various strange medical conditions, all in less than one year after arriving in Vietnam. The carotid artery isn’t even there anymore. It’s so old it has been absorbed into the muscle, beginning about forty seven years ago. The Army probably knew down to the week when the artery would close, when the stroke would occur, and that the VA had already ordered the phony losing of my medical records to protect the government in its coverup of Agent Orange. It’s amazing, and it’s shameless.

    This could happen to you

    Buck. I guess so. Basically, they confirmed what I thought. I need a law firm that will represent me, get the records that I can’t, then proceed to put the events in order for the VA’s record. Of course they already have every speck of information that exists, know the complete line of events, but we have to show them that we also know more likely than not, what the scenario is too, and prove at least equally, to more likely than not to everyone else what the case is, why it’s taken my lifetime to get here in order to get a few answers and proper compensation for my offspring, seeing that I was 100% disabled at discharge and should have been medically retired. I already know these answers, I think?, but maybe they will give me a wink to let me know I was right, even if they don’t or won’t put it in writing for their own reasons. Something must have been very very special, in my opinion. victor ray
