  1. .... "Due Process"

    August 20, 2014
    Board of Veterans'Appeals C-00 000 0000

    Department of VeteransAffairs

    Washington DC 20420

    Dear BVA,

    Please accept this letter as my "Notice of Disagreement" (NOD), in response to your decision letter dated April 23, 2014.
    I request additional time so we may reach an equatable conclusion to this case.
    I still have not received, or had the opportunity to review copies of my "Claims Folder", requested on December 7, 2011 , per FOIA requirements, prior to my BVA Hearing held on May 22, 2013. I had to go before the Honorable... BVA Judge, at my BVA hearing without ever reviewing copies of my records, putting me at a disadvantage and causing harm to my claim.
    I have waited till the last moment to file this NOD, hoping the VA would comply with my request before the 120 day BVA, NOD time limit runs out. It has taken almost six years to get this far, and I do not want to start over because I missed a deadline.
    Enclosed please find a letter from the DVA office of the General Council in support of my efforts to resolve this in a timely manner.
    Yours Truly,
    Commander Bob

  2. The Va is going to elimate Veteran homelessness, eliminate the backlog, no one will lose their insurance,every Veteran will get a doctors appointment in 30 days...and Santa Claus will bring every Veteran a new Lamborghini, as long as you vote for ..... Do you see the pattern here?

    For decades the VA has been gaming the system.

    Since it's inception, VA executive employees have been gaming Congress, the President and the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Now, it's just a matter of time before those nefarious career VA employees will be found out.

  3. Isn't it illegal to shred medical evidence, cover up wrong or criminal wrongdoing, LIE, etc?

    Hey, if anybody would investigate objectively, there would be a lot of handcuffs needed :biggrin:

    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 101 > § 2071

    § 2071. Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally

    (a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

    (b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

    And, then there's this section of the Code that outlines Secretary Peake's obligations.

    TITLE 44 > CHAPTER 31 > § 3106

    § 3106. Unlawful removal, destruction of records

    The head of each Federal agency shall notify the Archivist of any actual, impending, or threatened unlawful removal, defacing, alteration, or destruction of records in the custody of the agency of which he is the head that shall come to his attention, and with the assistance of the Archivist shall initiate action through the Attorney General for the recovery of records he knows or has reason to believe have been unlawfully removed from his agency, or from another Federal agency whose records have been transferred to his legal custody. In any case in which the head of the agency does not initiate an action for such recovery or other redress within a reasonable period of time after being notified of any such unlawful action, the Archivist shall request the Attorney General to initiate such an action, and shall notify the Congress when such a request has been made.

  4. ... plan to give veterans 40 miles away from a VA facility access to private care

    Pathetic... 20 or 25 miles distance away from many VAMCs , would show real commitment in helping disabled vets. Disabled vets living outside of metropolitan areas would still have 40 miles of heavy traffic to go through just to spend 20 min. looking for a place to park. Then 40 miles of rush hour traffic back home, after spending hours at one of those training hospitals.
    This clause in the bill gives us insight into the mentality of those in Congress, who claim they want to rebuild the VA system.
    I want to see more from these changes they are trying to beguile us with.
  5. "Are you motivated to do more?"


    This will take action from veterans themselves ,,,,

    I agree, Berta, however, this would require much sacrifice from our new generation, as well as the older vets.

    I am reminded of "Hooverville ."


    Herding cats these days is even more challenging, because many are so feral.

    Also, it appears the public suffers from ADD.


  6. I just received this email?...
    "Symantec Email Proxy deleted the following email message:
    From: "HadIt.com Veterans Forum" <noreply@hadit.com>
    To: XXXXXXXXXXXXX aka Commander Bob
    Subject: New reply to What Is Your Number One Complaint About The Va?"
    Whats up with this. could just be a glich. I will check my computer settings I am posting this to insure that I can follow this topic thread.
  7. The VA called me today and asked me since the VA was late on providing me a dental exam would I be up for a referral to a private dentist for an exam. This is directly related to the 30 day wait for care that has evolved out of the scandal. I said I would be up for it. Maybe I can get the Aholes to pay for my crown that has to go on top of the implant I got via private dentist. The last time I asked for an implant the VA said "NO" not necessary. This was completely untrue according to two other dentists I spoke to about it. I might even see if I can get them to pay for part of the implant, or I will call my congress critter. I frankly don't trust the dentists at the VA to do my implant surgery. A lot can go wrong. Implants that are done right are painful and take months as healing takes place. I needed a bone graft. First comes the extraction and then the implant and then prep for the crown and lastly the crown. $6000 all told. I am going to try and get this dentist full time if he is any good and I can swing it.


    Good Luck, John. You have earned this one...


  8. ... So I get this letter dated 5/20 stating i had a c/p exam for friday, 5/23.

    ...Are they going to throw out my claim?

    I agree with dav_marine 72.

    However, from what you have posted, the VA failed to notify you of your C&P exam in a " timely manner" .

    JMHO. Call the phone number of the C&P clinic listed on the C&P notice lettter tommorow. Tell them of your delima, and of their "failure to notify you in a timely manner", and then politely ask the clerk for another appointment date.

    I would not like to see, "failure to report to a C&P exam" show up in your denial notice.

    Sorry for all the hoops disabled vets have to jump through just to get what they have earned. Let's hope things will change soon.

    Good luck,

    Cmdr. Bob

  9. I belive he was "Misled by others"

    CNN: "Shinseki, who has been VA chief for more than five years, said he was misled by others."

    Shinseki said, "I was too trusting of some, and I accepted as accurate reports that I now know to have been misleading with regard to patient wait times," he said. "I can't explain the lack of integrity among some of the leaders of our health care facilities. This is something I rarely encounter during 38 years in uniform and so I will not defend it because it's indefensible, but I can take responsibility for it and I do."...

    He goes on to say, "My personal and professional commitment and my loyalty to veterans, their families and our survivors was the driving force behind that decision," he said. "That loyalty has never wavered, and it will never wane." CNN
