  1. Hello All! My name is Cris, and I served 4 years active duty in the USCG as a BM3. I am here on the recommendation of a co-worker who has had a lot of success in his claim with the VA and he suggested I do the same, stating you need an airtight case. I am a 30 year old male who suffers from low back pain, which started towards my last 2 years in the CG. I was on small boats my entire career, was a Boarding Officer, Coxswain and Heavy Weather boat crewman. Daily, getting out of bed is rough, taking some time "to get the kinks out." I believe a lot of this has been caused by bouncing a
  2. In 30 days, from enrollment, I have had my initial appointment, a disappointment, then after some research and a few phone calls, I think I found the answer. See a social worker before your appointment if possible, or at a minimum ask to see the social worker ASAP. Ask a lot of questions, get a lot of answers. Have a list of what you want FROM the doctor, don't wait for him to offer anything, you will run out of time. When my questions were interpreted as a complaint, I got to talk to a social worker and I was set up for the 9 referrals that I wanted to start off with. Two of

  6. Hello new to the site from seattle wa former navy cook claim started in sept 2010
  7. Greetings from OKC metro. Hot 'n humid here this 6th day of June. 9 years back separated from USN with 27 years 6 months and 17 days service. Before walking down the after brow the last official time, I copied my entire medical record X 3. (including labs and eko graphs). While on terminal leave I dropped one copy off at the Midwest City, OK chapter of the DAV. Fellow I met there welcomed me (of course I paid the $300.00 lifetime membership fee) and he agreed to go over my record. 2 weeks later he invited me over to review his findings and upon my acceptance the DAV became my representative
