  1. Good evening rebago, Your son is most fortunate to have you for his mother. It appears that you are his greatest advocate. Well, you have found the right place here at Hadit, to help you help your son. There is nothing sweeter than a Mother's love.Best wishes to you and your son this holiday season and every success in the new year. Bob
  2. Hi Matt, Your right. All things considered, it seems the VA came back quick with that part of your claim. Well, at least you saw this one coming. You stoped by "release of info" at the VA yesterday. Knowledge is power. Your on the back strech now, with the next two claims. Best of luck.
  3. Hi Irin, Here you go... http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-...pl=%2Findex.tpl However, if your looking for an online web site with that download direction, and for claims, help and info too, the best one I've found, so far, is @... http://www.hadit.com Best wishes, Cmdr.B
  4. Matt, The boss just came in and scolded me for using the slang word "Jarhead" in my last post, here . She said it might offend someone. I explained that the Mason Jar co. used to make the metal helmets for the Marines back in WWII, and that's where the endearing name for a jarhead came from. Good luck with your back & that C&P issue.
  5. Yes, I read where you were a Grunt in the USMC. Semper Fi.... I was Army , my brother was in the Marines (Da Nang 66-69). I'm not familiar with Symboiax?, however, I am confident someone here @ Hadit, can address your reaction to that new med you dropped. I'm 10% PTSD. and tried elivil and synoquain (sp) back in the old days. I also broke allot of bootstraps pulling myself up. Good luck tomorrow with your Dr. & meds. Together you can find the right Rx that works for you. Hang in there, Jar head, lol. Again best wishes for a successful new year.
  6. Good Morning Tagandbag, It must be nice living in So. Florida today. It's cold outside here in TX.I joined the army in 66, in Coral Gables. Happy holidays, best wishes for a sucessful new year. Cmdr.B

  7. The 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was signed into law on January 29, 2008 to include Chapter 61, a new component for Combat Related Special Compensation (CRSC). This legislation expands eligibility to medical retirees with less than 20 years of service, effective January1,2008. Medically retired veterans must still provide documentation that shows a causal link between a current VA disability and a combat related event. Each Branch of the military has it's own CRSC section. I successfully completed my application process through the Army CRSC unit. I first called them at (866)
  8. Hi Matt, Happy Birthday. You must have been a teenager when you first joined the military. I have read several of your threads and am rooting for you. Hang in there. Best wishes for a successful new year.Cmdr. B
  9. Welcome aboard. You have found a safe port in the storm.

  11. Good Morning. I just read this thread. it stretches back over a year. You have had an amazing year. I remember being stuck in a medical hold unit at Ft. Gordon Hosp, GA, in 1968. We had a couple of guys in the unit, that had hadit and just wanted to go home. So they did. I hope they got their discharges corrected. I remember one severely wounded sgt. He came back to the unit, after about 90 days AWOL. He got busted down to a pvt. Sad story. I hope he is ok now. I truly appreciate why you left that med holdover platoon. That should never be held against you. Only someone who was never
  12. Good Morning Brian, I had a couple of 10 percenters reduced to 0, over the years. The malaria disability had an automatic reduction to 0 after a year because I didn't have a reoccurrence. Another 10% sc disability cleared up and though it's still on the books, it's now rated 0. This was a long time ago. Where is the CUE? Good luck.
  13. Hi Karen, Your brother is a lucky guy to have a sister like you. You are his greatest advocate. You can help him. Remember, the clock is ticking on his claim. Like Pete 53 and some of the others here have said... It's very important!!! You brother has one year after the V.A.'s denial letter of April 9, 2008 to file a "Notice of Disagreement" (NOD). The first bureaucratic priority is for your brother to get a letter back to the V.A., dated and signed, stating, "I disagree with your decision. "Please accept this letter as my notice of disagreement". Someone here can help you with the
  14. Did you know that a new law allows retirees with under 20 years of active service, to recive retirement and V.A. comp. When filing for military CRSC retirement pay for combat wounded vets with PTSD, be sure your VASRD code# is listed as 9411. I was rated many years ago, before PTSD was recognized in 1980. My old VARSD # is not considered combat related. I now had to reaply for PTSD with the V.A.. I requested that the PTSD origin date go back to my first PTSD type rating date of 1978. I don't know if they will do it. I got my first CRSC Army retirement pay check this month. Hold on to yo
