  1. For your C&P exams, did you ever have answers, but not the questions? When I reviewed my old 1997 C&P exams, I found just that. One of those actually included the original blank examination worksheet (now those are DBQs), but none of the others were included. I sent the VA an FOIA request asking for a copy of the original C&P examination worksheet for the specific body part/system. Yesterday, I received a letter from the VA saying they could not find it, but instead sent me a copy of the current DBQ. Gee, thanks for nothing. Fortunately, I was able to find the answer to m
  2. How do I get an IG investigation into why the VA Medical Division cannot produce the copies of OPTR that have been removed from my C&P file. At my BVA hearing, in response to the question of how to get the needed probative documents, the BVA Judge responded, "LOL, we can't even get them." The reason is itself very probably probative. Such as we were unwitting subjects in research and the researchers were too lazy to make the double original copies. West Los Angeles VA Medical Center had its Research Credential abruptly revoked in 1999. I suspect the documents I'm trying to get from 19
  3. I have never felt I had my late husbands complete medical records. I want to see things like why did his Simvastatin quit showing up on his medication list, the instructions, settings and how many hours to use his CPAP, why shouldn't he take benzo's and then he was. I asked for every page, every note, etc.. C file does not have any of his medical records in it. So, my question is, if I feel there is more information after many requests, should I use FOIA to ask for them? Thank you for your time. I would like to clarify that I have sent the proper forms (5
  4. After the denial of my PTSD claim, I received a poorly written canned form letter, hap haphazardly pointing to all the reasons for the denial. Some of the reasons were used several times in the same letter, as if it had but cut and pasted from some master document of denial reasons. The letter contained numerous errors, eg; No sudden request duty assignment change, lay statements from family, service members, deterioration on work performance, behavioral changes, excessive leave, changes in your performance without explanation ...bla bla bla. Well, that's total BS, I provided detail
  5. I have come to learn my medical evidence was withheld all my life due to "ANTICIPATION OF LITIGATION", from what I gather, and the VA used a couple FOIA EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS in withholding them. I am asking why the VA would anticipate me suing them before I even got discharged? Just asking. Thanks Victor Ray
  6. Folks: The last time I did a FOIA (7 months ago), the entire disability process for me stopped for me at the Regional Office level. So, now I understand that there's only a couple of locations instead of the local RO that a Vet sends a FOIA to now. So, can someone now please educate me the best way or process to request a FOIA to get a digital copy of my entire C-File? I'm starting the process of doing my NOD now for my first claim and want to see what records were used to determine my claim service connections and also the denials. Anyway, I appreciate your help in advance....Rootbeer22
  7. Morning, Just wanted to let everyone know that after 9 months of submitting a FOIA request for a complete copy of my C&P file, my claim was closed yesterday since it was apparently processed. There was no movement on it up until this week when I decided to have my congressman submit a congressional inquiry on my behalf. I also emailed every organizational account at http://www.oprm.va.gov/contacts.aspx and notified the Department of Justice FOIA office at https://www.justice.gov/oip/contact-office. Not sure which one ended up pushing the VA to actually do their job, but my claim wa
  8. Hello! I am a grey hair. 50 now, and have not heard reville in over 25 years. Though I ambulate with forearm brace crutches, I will forever hold my head even with the horizon. I am in my heart a Marine, and I love my country. I cant bear the brunt if battle now, but I do share the pain of my companions in the suicide prevention groups, and PTSD groups that I attend. Contrary to cultural myth, Marines do cry. And they need to be embraced fresh back from war. They need to know that hopelessness can fade. I need to know that too. But I do not use hope as an excuse to avoid the duty I swore
