  1. Thank you. I should have been medically retired and they know it,but will deny everything that I say. They still are withholding the information and I am hoping a lawyer can get it. The VA is simply abusing its power, denying the known truth! Thanks for the encouragement, but I do not have hope for justice in my life time. What a mess. Prayers are appreciated. Thank You! victor ray
  2. I wish I knew the reason for the VA misleading us as we are pushed along the paths to our end. I completely believe that DAV is actually DVA. They are the worse liars of all so called VSOs. No VSOs actually fightfor you and none actually know the law. The VA trains all of them to do what the VA wants. Believe it or not, because you will anyway. file your claim, and if the outcome is lowballed, get an attorney, especially if the VA has Lied about your records. They will make sure I die before resolution, and I have come to see that I will always be part of the Agent Orange cover-up. Dont waste your life waiting on VSOs to help you. I was screwed out of a life with benefits, and the VA needs much encouragement to be honest! Believe what you will and good luck! victor ray
  3. ShawnKatt1. my two cents is to use the search capabilities of the internet, if that’s even trustworthy. Who knows what lawyers will sell you out when they see an easy payday. Everybody I know that has ever been to a leagal hearing before a trial always say, “This is the best we can do, so I would take it.” Immediately, my first thought is you have been had. You were screwed, and the attorney needed a new Porsche or house, or waterfront real estate and you just handed it to him. After he gets his cut 20-40%, or what ever he can con you out of because that’s just the beginning. After the other expenses it is closer to 40%, from what I hear anyway, but you are at their mercy. Watch out for the ones that tell you how honest they are, and pray that your gut instincts are keen when you do sign. Some of these lawyers are in the Reserves, or retired military officers!?? WTH, is that not a flag??? They are gonna help you against those paying their pension. The world and especially the VA is full of liars and cheats. They are disgusting and dirty. Get away from and VSOs, DROs, and look for that Lawyers ratings. Check the ratings, % of VA law they specialize in, and ask everything you can think of, of every one of those that you can, at the free consultation. So many of those take your case over the phone, and you have no idea who they are. I’m sorry for you and your husband, and the VA has lied to me in about every way possible, and I have requested basically the same as you, but they just lie, period. No and, if’s , or buts about it. They lie. I don’t believe for a second the lie about the other DRO scheduled was out sick. That’s almost a given. Before you sign anything, demand final say so. He will tell you that if you don’t take the deal you will owe him because he already had a deal cut, and in other words, sold you out. He probably spent his cut already, and you will tick him off if you don’t agree with his quick payday needs. They are there for “number one”, and that’s not your husband. Sorry I feel this way, but after 47+ years of complete deception, lies, hiding the evidence, my faith in the VA’s honesty is about 20.2%. The VHA is different. I’m very happy with them, but the VA is crooked, dirty, shameless, and will let your husband suffer from now on. This part of the VA is corrupt. Good luck and I hope you can find an attorney that will fight for you. It as simple as a flip of a coin and your gut instinct. Victor ray
  4. Ha slice and 63Charlie, you are absolutely right. All of you have been right. I believed the Army, then the VA, then the VFW in 1983, then the POS DAV, and dumped those (undercover VA employees), after their lies, then I went back and thought maybe the VFW was smarter than it was in 1983. NOPE-NOT AT ALL. They are practically useless, but stock a lot of forms instead of getting them from the internet. When I get over this illness, and if I can, I will actively seek legal representation. The scumbags have ruined so many lives, and there is no wonder the country is a mess. The whole GD Government is totally corrupt. They took advantage of us less informed and trusting believers, but f them. They told too many lies. I think I am done bitching and am moving on to litigation. Thanks to everyone. Victor ray
  5. Asknod. You have great abilities and I wish I had some of them myself, but I am too brain damaged to know what to do. I have been lied to by the BVA down, and if a BVA judge is a liar, who do you trust. I would like to get in Wilkes face and demand truthful answers, but he’s more likely than not, a liar as well. There may be good employees in the VA, but they have “0” authority, and no ability to answer to the veteran anything other than what the government (VA) tells them to. I have talked to those over the VBMS and they have assured me I have all the records that exist. They are total deceivers. I have also talked to those within the NPRC, who tell me that the VA took the records I have tried to get for that period and have not returned them. The VA denied they ever had them, then admitted they did, but returned them to the NPRC, then sent me two letters saying “We are withholding all information that if released would fall under the Deliberative Process Privilege “. They then sent me a letter after I said why would you withhold records when the whole world knows about Agent Orange now”? They replied, “It was a mistake when they said they were withholding my records”. Again, complete bull. The BVA admitted that in my 1983 claim, that the VA used my service treatment records in determining their decision, along with a dermatologist exam. “THE VA USED MY SERVICE TREATMENT RECORDS “. They have always maintained they were lost in 1971 intransit from Vietnam when I requested them in 1972 to use as evidence in disabilities to claim. I was too young to understand that the Army lies and what ever it takes to protect the government. I did have the DA3349 issued in Vietnam for permanent defects in my “ physical capacity and stamina “, but the dirty VA twisted it around saying the 708.9 “Urticaria Unspecified “ had nothing to do with my “Atopic Dermatitis “. On May 26, 1971 at the 24th Evacuation Hospital, Long Binh RVN, the doctors misdiagnosed me with AD, which never existed before Vietnam. The AD has been in their plain view, in their records, since 1971, and they awarded it on August 9, of this year. They lied about it not being in my records. They said I never complained in the service, but I was hospitalized repeatedly, once for 28 days straight. Another time for Upper Respiratory Infection due to “ Undetermined Organisms” in my lungs and blood(systemic). I developed an enlarged painful sensitive prostate at 19 years old, unexplained fevers, urinating blood, the lowest BP they had ever seen, believing their 3 sets of equipment was faulty. I could go on with the stroke from encephalitis, the Group A Streptococcus with Pharyngitis causing heart disease, or the AO or P. Malariae(?) causing complete artery occlusion, and coma, but the Army then the VA have all hidden the evidence. So they stacked the cards and shifted all burden of proof on to me. They are disgraceful and shameless, beyond reason. The VA destroyed my family members lives as well, denying them a young life of benefits which being my dependents, were legally entitled to. The VA is dirty, and have manipulated the law and the evidence to fit their agenda for over Forty Seven years, knowing the truth, but lying every day they let it go. I was 100% disabled at discharge and they knew it. PTSD is probably due to malaria in most all Vietnam Vets and they are hiding the nexus from all of us. I am completely disgusted with this racket of a game they use to screw us. They are dirty, most all of them. you may believe they are mostly passionate, but only in cherrypicking proper medical terms, and using terms like “Unspecified and Undetermined” is right up their alley. That gets them out of saying “Dioxin poisoning or Malaria or Tropical Disease”. A DRO in St. Louis named x lied to me to get me to drop the face to face meeting, promising an honest review and saving 9 or 10 months waiting time. Both never happened and she lied her A*s off. None of them are honest. My case went all over the place under the pretense of the NWQ or what ever, but it was really for different attorneys to review to see what they could keep screwing me out of. That whole farce is a joke and phony makeup backlog. It’s who you know and that’s it. There is no backlog when DAV can in less than one week, get a claim expedited and 12 years in retro pay benefits complete, done, finished. Look up Steven or Stephen Kelly, handled by Mr. Edwards in St. Louis in 2012. It’s a game they play with lives and I don’t have enough life left for them to screw over much longer, and that’s exactly what they want. They want you to kill yourself or have a speedy illness to get the books closed on you and your dependents. They are dirty. Dirty supervisors over dirty employees that pervert the law and manipulate the evidence. Yes, St. Louis is probably the biggest perverts of them all, besides the BVA itself. I’m going to the media and explain just how they can ruin you by sneaky disgusting tactics like LIES AND DECEITFUL DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE. IT MAKES ME SICK how they can just do anything they please and never answer for their deceit to anyone. It’s because the whole thing is corrupt. Everyone at the VA is corrupt, protecting each other’s back, and if you are honest, you are out, done, and life is made miserable until they quit. I don’t have time to file for different crap, and won’t be here to help my kids with the VA claims, just like the snakes planned. They will be screwed over like they have been all their lives already. I should have been medically discharged period, but the corruption is rampant in the dirty VA. I don’t know what to do right now, but Wilkie will hear from me. Thanks A. victor ray
  6. Vetquest, Buck, Berta, Asknod, everyone else! Thank you and everybody for all the help and advice. It was all good, but when you are up against the establishment that is full of corruption, well, you know. They will never admit I had a stroke at 19 while on duty, that Migraines developed encephalitis I contracted in Vietnam and they would lie about every record on record, and what ever takes to avoid paying what was rightfully due. I have no respect for Army Regulations, U.S.C., or the BVA. They are all as corrupt as you can get and are a stepping stone to the court, where you only hope and pray there is justice. I have no faith in any of it now. I have seen too much, and figured it out. Dead men don’t complain. thanks, Victor
  7. Thanks Buck. Thats great advice, but i’m Afraid it’s too late. I am looking for legal representation now and have filed the Notice of Appeal against Wilkie. I don’t think he is a friend to Veterans, but I don’t really care anymore. It will go where it will go, and that is where they direct it to go. They are liars and thieves, forcing thousands to die annually, one way or another. They are Antiffa, they are everything we don’t want in this country, they are the LAw manipulators, they are the rigged elections, they are the swamp. It’s hard to respect liars and thieves who Deceived you and your family all of our lives. I-need a lawyer, one like Paula Padeen had and I am looking now, and can only pray for one honest one out of thousands. It will be tougher than a needle in a haystack search. The VA has lived up to their reputation again, proving life and honor is so meaningless to them. It’s a joke they pulled on us. I am going to get my sh!t together and go to the media, like I have threatened, while I am alive. Maybe we can expose The VA scum in St. Louis, and Washington will take some action, any action against them. This is 100% wrong and has been for half a century. It is a story! thanks again. victor ray
  8. Buck, I cannot fight liars anymore. From the BVA down they are corrupt, perverting and twisting the facts in favor of the government’s interest. They do not say that I tried to get my records before discharge, but was lied to by them. They do not mention that I tried to get the medical records again in my 1983 claim, but the BVA did admit “the VA used my medical treatment records in the 1983 decision. I didn’t get a copy, but they did. Instead, they say I waited 40+ years to apply for disability, Forty something years after discharge. Total bull and lies. They intentionally hid my medical records since 1971 to purposely keep my conditions out of public scrutinizing, and deny me any benefits. Every step so far has been totally manipulated by the VA, and they are controlling everything. They own the lawyers, claims agents, and VSOs in my opinion. Not actually own, but they strike deals to sell out the Vet for pennies on the dollars. Mr Foster was very unhappy with his representation and settlement, and we know who sold him out. I don’t trust a single person in the VA, from the bottom to the top. They have lied and deceived to the end of MY life and I don’t give a damn what anyone says, ITS A TOTALLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION, and St. Louis, where the records are kept, can verify it. The NPRC told me that the VA took my records and have not returned them. They have no intention, and there is no chance in hell of anyone going in and physically retrieving them, so it’s a rigged VA tragedy. They are responsible for thousands of suicides and pretend to care so much. Total bull. They make you sorry you are a veteran after 47 years of lies, bullsh*t runaround, hiding evidence, manipulation of evidence, and crooked BVA. They can all kiss my as*, the scumbags. Record requests are a joke, and if they want you dead, they just lie about your records, your injury, disease, or illness, and put the burden all on the veteran. Benefit of doubt in a “tie” is a total lie. They do what they want, and if it involves much money, they drag it out in court until you are dead. No one here can dispute any of this, so no need to reply. I just want the truth out about the scumbags controlling us. I am truly sorry I ever served. Veterans Day means sh*t. victor ray
  9. Thank you GeekySquid. i get it now. I did get that straightened out with the VA after I had paid for it, but I had been 50% rated for four or five months and still paying for my other meds, and at 50% and Vietnam Vet I had no co pay, but my doctor nor my nurse knew. I thought I had a copay because I also had outside insurance. I still do because I am married and the VA screwed me whe I should have been medically retired 46 years ago last April at 100% Service Connected, medical for life including spouse, 100% Pay, PX and all that stuff. They lied for all these years and it pisses me off that they are still getting away with F’ing me and my family, and sitting on the evidence all my life. They are running our VA and totally immune from criminal activity. How can they get away with it? I still pay $10K annually for medical insurance premiums before taxes, deductibles, co pays or any out of pocket. It’s too expensive to live OR die nowadays. Dang. I was lucky to survive 18 months, and did wind up in a coma. Thank you! victor
  10. Yes, I believe it. Our priorities are so f’d up it’s unreal. Our President had two scoops of ice cream a year ago and it’s still talked about, lol, but marines or cops getting murdered hardly make the news even once. They will say two cops were gunned down today when they responded to a family dispute. The temperature today will....... I may not do squat, or I might. I know what I want to do, and that would be to see VA crooks go to jail, forever if they cause one single suicide. These scumbags are killing vets, but blame bureaucracy, but THEY ARE THE BUREAUCRATS. It makes you feel good about getting it out though, and today with the freedom of speech, you can get on tv and name every name of every doctor or rotten nurse examiner in Kansas and it not even matter. The VA is completely biased, picking and choosing who gets SC and who don’t by the people they know, or their law knowledge. That’s why we get lawyers, because they have lawyers that make sure the law protects the government against scumbags like us that feel the Agent Orange or Malaria or the experiments actually did do harm. well, I will get it started and my kids will have to finish it a decade from now, probably. I may humiliate some people too, or get some fired. I will see. Thanks for the info.
  11. I’m pretty sure you are talking to me. I went to a fee based dermatologist for both the Agent Orange Registry exam. We discussed my spots on the lungs, and the Atopic Dermatitis. He didn’t mention the lung conditions, red dots all over except it was part of the Dermatitis. In the report he said I had Dennie Lines, but never said a single word about it. Every examiner I have seen has twisted the discussion to fit what ever the VA wants. I think they are the absolute worse medical people on the planet. Certainly the worse in America. I had developed the lung conditions after Vietnam and was hospitalized for it about seven months after RVN, and still on duty. The Army documented it, but ignore the documents saying I had an Upper Respiratory Infection caused by “UNDETERMINED ORGANISMS “ that were in my lungs and blood, diffuse, acute. I don’t believe they didn’t know the organisms, and just left it at that. I spent weekends in bed, cramped up, parasites crawling around my eyes, migraine headaches, had a stroke, bunch of crap. Anyway, I was put on the Registry, I suppose. I don’t know for a fact, and all I remember getting was a written prescription for Benadryl. Later I got a denial because they couldn’t pick and chose who were definitely exposed to AO, so they conceded my exposure, and Agent Orange was not found to cause any adverse effects or disabilities. What a crock. I didn’t pay for anything except the Benadryl and never got any medical records to refute the disability denial. I was told they were lost in 1971, and requested them for 1983, but the VA never furnished squat, and basically still haven’t, except a months worth of hospitalization records from in RVN, Japan, Chicago Naval Hospital Infectious Disease Ward and so on. On another note, I paid for all medical care needs for myself and families all my life. The VA charged me $24.00 for 30 low dose aspirin 4 years ago. I could buy 200 at Walgreens for $5 on sale, and they still had me paying when I was 50% SC until I was reading about what was covered. My doctor from India had no clue what vets paid what, but she sold pharmaceuticals for decades before practicing medicine. She taught acupuncture Two days a week and did paper work on another, so two days a week she was a doctor. My doctor now is from India and pushes acupuncture too. That’s will take over medicine in the VA, and the US. The new rave is Yoga, acupuncture, and self love to conquer illness. I’m almost glad to get out of this fxxxxxg life. I would not believe anything you are told if it is not written down and signed. Nobody likes their name on anything, especially VSOs. Victor
  12. Buck. That’s what I thought when I read that article of the Vet Getting $480K. They would have had to pay him ALL at the 2013 rate, from what I understand. I figure they have crapped on me for over 47 years already, screwed my dependents as well, lied about every decision they’ve made, used ignorant or corrupt nurses on exams (probably corrupt instead of ignorant, because no one is that ignorant, are they?), withheld all my medical Records, the evidence that proved a connection back to military service. There is something they don’t want out to the public. They tried the syphilis thing until I showed them the Army’s tests proving negative, TWICE. I think Malaria is one possibility because every vet that with PTSD probably has brain diseases, tumors, occluded arteries etc. I have all of that, and they’ve known my case since 1971, and i’m Sure they knew about them as well. We must demand an autopsy done by independent doctors on every vvet with ptsd as they die, and have it published. I’m totally pro VA, but totally against liars in the VA. We all should be, but they do have their pets that take care of their business. I will bet you anything we have more suicides from Vietnam Vets than from all other wars in our history combined. I don’t have to tell you it’s because the vets can’t handle the deception, the truth being denied, and the corruption by supervisors, so I won’t . I don’t think the VA would offer a settlement, but I would consider one if it wasn’t an insulting offer, but considering the past treatment, I doubt that would happen. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit down with an honest VA representative? If not, then one with a seriously honest offer. It’s hard to believe they would make either happen, or they would have already. The VA has never offered me anything except misery, pain, and deception, unless they were forced or knew they could shaft me a little longer by percentages from time to time. They have made people do things they hate to do, in order to keep their jobs, and I hate to sound so negative about them, but they’ve ruined me with their corrupted supervisor punk law defying self righteous moron raters and examiners, and different department heads destroying evidence, lying about evidence, hiding evidence, and killing veterans. When you know every word they write to you is a lie, it’s hard to have any respect at all. I’m sure they are reading every word of this, so they can call me or not. I don’t care either way. They’ve done killed me too many times. victor
  13. The VA certainly did have my Service Treatment Records, but let me believe they were still lost. We did file for those records(me & VFW) and they were suppose to come to me. Four or five months after I was denied I move away because my employer had called me back to work. The records never came and the DA 3349 profile from the Vietnam Medical Board Proceedings was the only record I had. The VA said I submitted no records in support of my 1983 claim and remember the Army told me my records were Lost in 1971 intransit from Vietnam and never changed that fact despite the requests for them, but CLEARLY, the BVA went on record saying the VA used them in 1983 to make its decision. WTF. That’s a WOW factor and clearly “uncovered the Cover-up”. That’s another deception the VA used to keep denying me and dependents of any benefits going back to 1971. That claim had an automatic effective date to the last day I served in Vietnam. I told Rochelle I bet this is going to get ugly before it’s done, over four years ago, because I knew the VA was 100% dishonest with my case. I always thought I was injected as an experimental project and I bet I was right. The VA had them come to my house to make sure I didn’t have my own set of records. Lucky for them I didn’t, but they had to make sure anyway. Cover-ups can be tricky. At that time, only skin conditions were admitted as possibly being Agent Orange related. “Chloracne”. I didn’t have a single medical record except DA3349, but knew I had skin condition disabilities from the Agent Orange Exposure that caused my Chloracne, Eczema, and skin Disease because it was unnaturally itchy, but no other conditions were allowed for compensation by the VA, and I didn’t know what any records said, or if there were any records. They were lost, remember. I had complained about chest pains like my heart, migraine headaches, side aches, abdominal pain, bone pain Joint pain, back aches, feeling like I was getting shocked all the time, broke out like in puberty, insomnia, respiratory problems, shortness of breath, nausin, urinating blood six months after Vietnam, eye pain like parasites, and all the other crap they denied for 50 years. They don’t want to talk to me so they can talk to someone else. Lawyers will have to get their own fees paid on top of mine. I got screwed, and the VA has been anticipating this since April 20, 1972 Victor R. Sellers
  14. Buck. it appears they are paying him at the current rate in 2013. If they paid me at today’s current rate for 568 months, it would be $1,784,088.00. That’s the disability wages, and includes nothing I paid out over the last 568 months. It does not include my kids compensation pay or what they lost. That does not consider the dirty dealings by the VA, or any sufferings by me, by them, future problems or early death, or anything else. I had a lot of issues. Lots of them. While still on duty developing more and more all the time, and suffering from organism in my blood and lungs, and heart and liver and brain, and skin, and eyes, and everything. My guts, my kidneys, and I suffered. In May in Vietnam, I was cramping with severe abdominal pain and in January 1972 I was still cramping severely with abdominal pain. I had 24 tumors removed in 2014, I think it was, and the FAP TESTS were done to rule out heredity as the cause. None, Zero in my siblings or parents and they were environmentally acquired. I dont know what the VA wants to do, but according to past events, they want to intercourse me as long as I breathe. They don’t talk to lay people , only their own caliber of people. I have to send off my NOA, certified. I’ll be back vrs
  15. Yes Buck. I have listen to and talked to him before, and he’s very knowledgeable. He was a Game Warden for the Military, and a smart man. I will listen, but I know what I have to do. This needs to be in the media, and followed by the news as many Vietnam Veterans feel an absolute connection to brain tumors, strokes, brain lesions, much more than the Vietnam Era Veterans, or general populas of the same age. I’m trying to get some answers, and yes, I do want proper compensation, who wouldn’t. I get peed off at times and feel that would be too lenient on the liars that’s kept this going this long. I should never have been deceived in the first place, but being part of the Agent Orange cover up, I almost understand their reasoning, but I wasn’t a guy that waited years to file. I was the guy with no choice but to wait. “THEY”-THE ARMY-DOD-THE VA forced me to wait. “THEY”- said the medical treatment records were lost in 1971 when I requested them in 1972 for disability claims, because I was 100% disabled. The BVA in their August 9, 2018 decision used the lost records without giving me one copy of a single record, THAT WAS SUPPOSEDLY LOST. THE VA is 100% wrong, and they should realize it. The lies will be shown to be bigger and bigger as time goes.
