  1. I just made a call from my cell phone to check status on my appeal. After going through the maze. I got this message," We are experincing larger than normal call volume please try your call leter. The I immediately tried my landline phone called again and went through the maze and they said my call time ait would be aproximately 2 minutes. After listened to about 2 minutes of 1940's ballroom, a rep aid said my name is ---- How may I help you. I said I would like to check the status on my appeal. he said I'm sorry sir our system is down, would you like to call back in about an hour, which would be 5:30 PM. I think they are closed then, am I right. Seem strange to me. Anyone experince this?
  2. Does anyone know if the DOD will request that Presidental requested 10% budget cut of the DOD will be diverted to VA health care and compensation for our wounded vets? I sure hope so, this could be change we could believe in.
  3. Has anyone ever been successful modifying a regional level appeal via iris instead of postal mail? For instance, if you had a sc condition increased by a successful NOD to your satisfaction, while your Form 9 appeal was pending in the hanger, could you drop that part of the appeal via iris?
  4. Got my new VA hearing aid. I am hearing noises that I haven't heard in almost 40 years. My wife is tickled because I have the TV volume at 35 dbs lower than before. It only took me two years from point of first hearing test to get it but I am thankful for it.
  5. I was told by RO that claim UI was finished but still would need to signed off on. Is this good news? Can anyone shed any light here?
  6. The VA acts the most ignorant when they get a NOD, read it and know they don't have a leg to stand on to deny it again nor did they in the first place, so they move on to other tatics to deny and confuse the claim.
  7. I tried that angle but it haven't been sucessful yet. I hope it works for you. I filed a claim in 1997 and let my claim go dead in 2005 after 3 appeals. I reopened in 1997 with new evidence and was diagnosed with one of the conditions I originally claimed in 1997. I was granted a partial percentage in 2007 with 1 year back pay from point of reopening the claim. It was clear to me that the reason I was not granted in 1997 on the first round, was there failure to weigh all the evidence I submitted. Only 1 disability out of several granted in 2007. It is also very apparent to me that the VA is more likely grant a sc a condition that is not likely to end up being the cause of our death and deny the sc conditions that are likely to just be the cause of our death. Their reasoning is, they will not have to pay DIC when we die.
  8. Make sense to me out_here. I see no reason why a 100% vet shouldn't be able to attempt to better himself in education or in anyway or to even add to his disability income but as you said the VA looks at it differently. I only wish for myself, being 50% sc at this time and not being either mentally or physically to attempt either education or more income I can only beg for UI. Anyone could spend one hour with me and see without any doubt see that is not possible but it still takes the VA 2 years and counting to decide my UI claim. I think you are right on in taking the time to put together this communication to your congressman. If I can ever get able I want to write some communication about my issue and also for other vets who fit my category who come after me. God Bless out_here.
  9. I don't know what happened I posted and IT appeared I did not post and I posted it 2 more times before I ever saw it there. My brain I guess, SORRY.

  10. It has been reported to me numerous times that I have ground my teeth in my sleep since leaving the military in 1969. I have never heard this connection. This would have been good evidence long ago in a claim. I was not PTSD sc'd until 2007, only 38 years late. danang_1969
  11. How would anyone rate the VA false teeth compared with the private sector dentistry people? Is there any other VA qualification other than to have the need for false teeth is the vet is 50% sc? danang_1969
  12. Congrats. Sounds great and I know you are ready to rest awhile. danang_1969
  13. I have listened to classical music from time to time and I haven't ever noticed any improvement in the tinnitis. I don't know about that tinnintis prescription, what do you think about this? The VA audiologist told me as soon as my hearing aid was made and I wore it awhile it would help my tinnitis some.
  14. That about sums it up jbasser and this information that you posted totally grounds my UI claim, if the VA would go by the truth I provided and they know it is apparent as the nose on their face.
