Blue Water Ao Vets

Stretch I have e-mailed and sent a priority letter to our Mr. Akaka. I am going to copy and paste to this reply. May I strongly suggest that all Veterans get off their duff's and contact Mr. Akaka and their Senators and Representative to protest Senate BILL S-2026. "

I am supporting his statement that this is a serious issue -very serious------

If you have not written to Senator Akaka please consider doing this because this bill ultimately AFFECTS EVERY VETERAN!

This bill defies Nehmer as well as Agent Orange.

It would alter the entire Nehmer COurt Order and Stipulation involviong retroactive payments.

It would prevent any AO vet who served in the Pacific during the war to attain VA comp for presumptive conditions.

Senator Akaka doesn't have a clue as to Nehmer or even Agent Orange in my opinion-some of the electronic vets' community thinks he has been bought- I dont- I think he was intimidated to sponsor this bill- it was not his idea-

If this bill passes this means ANY type of veteran's disability benefit can be done away with just through sponsoring a bill that could gain momemtum.

I see it this way-

the Federal Circuit Court is presently deciding if Haas will be upheld-

If it is , this will cost the VA money-who cares-

The money is the Deserved Compensation of Blue Water veterans exposed to Agent Orange who have made sacrifices incurring presumptive disabilities.

Isnt it odd that this bill was introduced on the heels of the Court's pending decision over the Haas litigation?

Anyone can readily the "nexus" Haas--------and the etiology- MONEY.

Please read the bill and then write to Senator Akaka and protest this ridiculous attempt to overrule not only any pending HAas decision by the court-but also the Nehmer decision- fought for so long and hard by NVLSP (whose is also fighting the VA's attempt to invalidate the CAVC Haas decision.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to 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.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
