  1. Hello Sisters and Brothers: I read the first four pages to the FMP topic, so does anyone know... Background: After relocating to Germany I had to have a root canal, which is a service connected condition on my FMP list that I obtained before relocation. I had to travel six hours and stay in hotels for 5 days to find an American trained dentist who followed American dental procedures - communicating the maxillary sinus complications aggravating my dental situation to a local national was to difficult. Issue/question: The FMP literature says "transportation and/or
  2. Hello Berta and fellow Vets: A retired Navy Vet's wife struck up a conversation with me. The hubby is in bad shape with AO conditions and she asked me to do research. Of course, Hadit is my first go to place!!! There is a new updated Ships List as of 7/2/2018. The list is named " U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships that operated in Vietnam" and is found half way down the page on this link: https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/claims-postservice-agent_orange.asp PJ
  3. Hi, Here's a quote by Bronco Vet lifted from another forum: " If you discontinue treatment, especially after getting benefits, then the VA assumes it has improved, and you can expect VA to take a hard look at a reduction." Background: Rated 100% about 2013. One of the ratings is 50% for depression. Yearly, I see the psychiatrist to discuss things and renew a Rx. I always go to my appointments and VA cancelled my last one and didn't reschedule. I've been requesting Rx renewals through my local OPC pharmacy without a problem. This last year this Dr. out-of-the-blue suggested

    'Great information on getting your 100% rating. I am in the process of filing for just about exactly the same things you did. I tried to acces the attached pdf's to see how to go about writing mine up but everything I click the link it gives me a new page stating "I don't have permission to access that information". Would it be possible for you to send me a different link or even better email copies of your pdf's....redacted of course. 

    Thanks,

     

     

  5. Hello, Happy Veteran's Day! Does anyone know if Ebenefits is shutdown? I tried accessing it a week ago and it was under maintenance. As of today, I still can even get to the "login screen? What gives, PJ
  6. I've read many of Dr. Bashes letters and would agree that what he writes is by far more superior to my "outline and claim structure". He knows what he is doing, and yes, the DBQs don't have enough room, which is why I expand all my evidence into multiple pages of a statement in support of claim document.

  8. Hi, I'm just hours into Habit and came across a post you wrote on how you got 100%. Thank you for putting it so clear I've been wanting to fight the VA for 100% but didn't know where to start. I tried to click on some of your examples (specifically the one for eczema) but none of them came up. I just requested my medical files and C file this morning so I have a little work ahead of me but can you share how you wrote yours out or is that not allowed?

    Thanks again,

    I look forward to reading more of your post.

  9. Hi lcpl: IMHO, C&P exams always have questionable items in them. What's missing is comparing your C&P Exam to the Rating Decision from the RO. Again, IMHO the VA makes numerouls mistakes by way of errors, omissions, and absences - both intentionally and unintentioinally! I am not that familiar with all the leg, knee, and foot conditions; however, as requested, I took a pass at a series of questions I'd be asking myself if I were you. I am very familiar with OSA and wether it's secondary to other conditions. The VA loves to deny based upon secondary claims saying "there is n
  10. Greetings: I am grateful that one afternoon a few years ago, I Googled "I've had it with the VA". That simple "search" born out of utter frustration led me to "Hadit". And there it all started! As of two weeks ago, I'm rated 100% (long overdue). And, I am still NOT done with the VA. For those looking to do there own research I offer this process: Obtain your Military Service and Medical Records by mailing (certified, return receipt requested) an SF-180, found here: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/standard-form-180.html Obtain your full VA tr
  11. Hello: Tbird, this should probably be posted elsewhere, and I'll leave that up to you. DAV, like most Veteran Organizations are very good. Recently, I got this email from the DAV National Commander, where we need to let Congress "know" we can't/won't tolerate them dragging their feet. So, sing DAV's let to the entire Congress here: Veterans should never be victims of Capitol Hill inaction or government shutdowns. One bill can guarantee veterans their benefits - no matter what. But Congress must act by year-end. Help us bring this vital measure to a vote, before time runs out by s
  12. Hi, I hope you all are doing well these days. For some reason the "Google Custom Search" gives me search errors. Can anyone point or drop a link to the following issues: NIHL - Noise-Induced Hearing Loss; and what the hearing loss criteria are? Menieres' T-Bird when I use the search function is returns the error in the attached PDF. Thanks, PJ Error - HadIt.pdf
  13. Hi, Hadit has been a "port in the storm" for awhile now - thank you! I'm confused, demoralized, and humilated right now after two years of Voc-Rehab and getting terminated from my job yesterday after five months. Reasons: Difficulty understanding instructions; Not assimilating simple concepts; Taking to long to complete task and more. It was never addressed either, just "good bye". These difficulties and others have persisted over 15 years and always seems to lead to termination. Not being able to support oneself is very, very, depressing and demoralizing and makes me questio
