  1. New information for (Vietnam) Navy vets. Thought worthy of passing along. Blue Water Navy - Nehmer The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced it will readjudicate claims for Veterans who served in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam during the Vietnam War. This review is part of the Veterans Benefits Administration’s implementation of the November 5, 2020, U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California decision to readjudicate previously denied claims as applied in Nehmer vs. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans who were previously denied service connection for an herbicide related presumptive condition due to lack of in-country Vietnam service will automatically have their claims readjudicated. Readjudication means VA will review the evidence of record and provide replacement decisions in the cases of Veterans who were previously denied service connection for one or more herbicide related conditions on the basis that military service was not performed on the landmass of the Republic of Vietnam or on its inland waterways. This review will also apply to eligible survivors of deceased Vietnam era Veterans.VA is dedicated to ensuring all Veterans receive the benefits they have earned. VA ensures that we have the proper resources in place to meet the needs of the Veteran community. Eligible survivors of deceased Veterans may also benefit from the policy and may be eligible for benefits based on the Veterans’ service. Veterans who have a condition caused by herbicide exposure during military service can learn more about Agent Orange exposure at this website.
  2. My bank account got a boost this morning due to a retro deposit as a result of a grant for an increase from R-1 to a R-2 rating. I filed a ready to rate claim on Feb 1, 2021. My C&P exam was preformed on Feb.12, 2021 and the claim was granted on March 16, 2021. I also was awarded an increase on Chloracne from 0% to 20%. I was awarded another 30 % for painful scars. I have seventeen rated scars, most scars are from four to fifteen inches long. I did not file on the scars, they were discovered on the C&P exam and awarded as a result of VA's duty to assist. I also have a COVA case pending for an earlier effective date of SMC R-1. I have won a joint motion for remand and the case is at the BVA awaiting a new decision at this time. I expect a decision in May or June. I would like to thank all of the folks at Hadit for the years of correspondence, advice, and encouragement. I also must say that a lot of this would not have been likely without the experience, words of wisdom, and information provided from Alex Graham. I began my claims process sixteen years ago in 2005. My first success and grant was on November 2, 2009 with the first ever Agent Orange exposure claim granted for exposure at a post or base inside CONUS. That win was for 100% plus an "S" award and 1-K. Hunter S. Thompson STOLEN FROM ASKNOD'S BLOG!
  3. I have a C&P Exam coming up. I put in a supplementary claim for Agent Orange hypothyroidism. Does anybody know if it has been added to the presumptive list. I heard it has, which is why I filed the claim. But my VSO, who filed the claim, says it's still waiting for Congress to pass it . Otherwise why would she submit the claim?? Please help, my email is richarddharrison@juno.com
