  5. I am so sorry to hear of your daughter's disability. I hope it goes well for her and she prevails asap. She is most fortunate to have you as her advocate. Best wishes, Bob
  6. The VA is overloaded in all aspects of the system. The side effects are frustration and torment. We have to hang in there and keep vigilant. I had my BVA hearing on May 22, and am now waiting for the results. I know the feeling. I had to slug along for almost 5 years for this one. My most positive thoughts are with you guys. Good luck for a successful outcome. Cmdr. Bob
  7. Thanks for the bottle idea, carlie. I used my Purple Heart medal instead, which was unknown to the judge, and left out of the SOC,. It shocked the judge, and diminished the VARO's credibility a little more. The overall experience was exquisite. Everything that had to come out, did. The light of truth shown bright in the hearing room that day. Good karma was providing coincidence and timing that strengthened my case. I just wish you were there to enjoy the moment, carlie. I am reminded, however, a well delivered, and perfected case , may not prevail. Sometimes justice is still elusive
  8. Wednesday @ BVA hearing.., I slayed the dragon. Today, I am at peace.

      No matter the outcome, I have won.

      The torment is gone. The weight has been lifted. I should have the transcript and details in time. I'll share more then.

  9. Congratulations, 'Crome_305'... and good luck on the remands. You mentioned, you recently checked e-benefits, and it came up with 70% P&T (Permanent and Total) Is there an unemployability issue the VA has considered? Do you have a service rep? Best wishes, C.B.
  10. Welcome aboard, 'ukfan041', Thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Great Country. Congratulations on going back to school. You are young, and you will achieve your goals if you just press on. To better understand your situation, May I ask, what are your medical issues? Could you qualify for voc - rehab? You are young, 'ukfan041' My son is 42 years old, and will be graduating from law school in a month. Good Luck, Cmdr. Bob
  11. Thanks for your support carlie. It means a lot to me. I am most grateful for the camaraderie here at Hadit. I know that I'm not alone when I go before the BVA hearing. LOL on tossing the prosthetic leg on the table. However, I'm sure as I soon I go down to unloosen my leg strap, I would get tazzed, or hauled off to a rubber room, or something, ha. E. thinks I should hit it hard with my cane, to get their attention at the beginning of the hearing. C.B.
  12. BVA hearing May 22nd. re: PTSD "...it has been a real torment for me to have to remember the details of the stressors I experienced when I was 18 years old, during the Tet Offensive era of 1968. I understand that I have had to relive the experience, and remember the most horrific time in my life. One that I have tried to avoid and forget for over four decades. I understand this has to be done for the hearing. " Cmdr. Bob
  13. Again Congratulations, 71M10. Please keep us posted on the P&T and SMCs? C.B.
  14. Thanks for your support 'Justrluk' . All things considered, I think my NSO is doing the best he can, with what he's got. (As Bob Dylan once wrote..." Don't think twice, it's all right) Well, I still do not have copies of my records and files, that I repeatedly, formally requested from my VARO years ago. It has taken over 1,700 days for my case to come this far. Because the VA has refused to send me my records in a timely manner, I am thinking about relying on 38 USC 5107 (b) and my memory, to overturn the negative elements of my SOC, at my BVA hearing... What do you think my
  15. So true... Thanks for the reminder, John999. Good Luck '71M10'. And Good Luck to all disabled vets going through the appeals process. I am reminded of Rudyard Kipling's ..."IF"... If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too: If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise; If you can dream---and not make dr
  16. Three weeks till my BVA Hearing..Still no copies of my Records??? Here is the email I received from my Rep. **************email*********************** from: NSO Rep. In response to your call this morning: It is my firm opinion as your representative that you should not ask to again reschedule your ... Travel Board hearing. It is so difficult and time consuming to get these Travel Board’s scheduled and they already rescheduled you once when I was not available since they did not provide enough notice and I was working that week in DC at BVA. I realize they have not provid
  17. sorry to hear about your lost records, Raybob. Good Luck on getting it straightened out. I know it has been a heavy load, however, ...we must push on... Cmdr. Bob
  18. Sweet!! Congratulations! Good luck on the other issues. It sometime seems like there is no end to this. I pray for daylight, someday... Cmdr. Bob
  19. Greetings 'prietosky,' First of all. thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country. JMHO Now, to your Question: " how much my CRSC will be ? "Rank E-6, 5.5 years AD, 90%+ CRSC ," 100% VA all combat related. (What's that about?) . I have a friend who held the rank of E-5,with AD just under 5 years. He makes about $75.oo mo. So ok, and again JMHO... I would hazard to guess, you are looking at around a hundred a month. When did you file? Any any retro? Good Luck. Please keep us posted. Cmdr. Bob P.S. I had to fight and wait 40 years for the A
