Veterans On C-span



  • Elder

I watched Representative Filner and his committee on C-Span. Filner is obviously a friend of disabled vets. Some of the others I am not so sure of regarding some of the comments on PTSD and IU. I think as long as democrates stay in control of the house and senate there will be no whole sale slashing of benefits. This is one case where the lines are drawn very clearly. Satel and her bunch of neo-conservatives are our enemies. Billions for the war in Iraq and nickles and dimes for the troops welfare. I am not so sure about our VSO's either. I think the DAV and VFW would sell us out in a heartbeat if it means keeping their choke hold on being the POA's of vets for disability claims. We need to make sure our friends in the congress and potential friends in the whitehouse get our votes. This is a dollar and cents issue apart from any ideology. Skip giving money to the VSO's and send it to your vet friendly congressman if they are vet friendly. If a congress critter votes against mandatory funding they deserve to be voted out of office. Support the troops until it means supporting the troops, and then the pockets are empty and we need to bootstrap. Draft dodgers telling us to suck it up and drive on. Have they no shame? Money,money, money is all it is about.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
