Question

hadit members:

I decided to make this post because of a response earlier that I made to a member. There are a lot of military units out there that really mess up alot of young veterans that have to discontinue their military service for reasons prior to their expiration term of service. Please advise those who are close to you or someone you care about not to be satisfied with only an "honorable, honorable under general conditions or anything that suggest that block 24 of DD 214 is the only important part of the document, because its not. They need to have the DD 214 explained to them before signing. They could very well be signing a document that suggest, yes, "we are granting you an honorable discharge but your seperation code, block 26 could mean something derogatory enough to prevent veteran's benefit. As well as block 28, "reason for seperation. Spread the word so that none of our younger vets get screwed by the system, whether intentional or unintentional. Hope this be of help in our quest for "no veteran left behind".

I wonder if some of the veterans' organizations would include your comments as part of an

article? There should be a way to get this information to a greater audience in print.

Great job!

Just had an airman discharged because of fraudulent enlistment. When he fell from the merry go round at age three, that is the reason he was discharged!! He suffered a fall in basic and the Air Force says he has a broken vertabrae ( which he does) and it is because of the fall twenty years ago. So how did he pass MEPS? How did he pass basic five weeks and then go to sick bay and get thrown out? AF Says he did not report the injury and that is fraudulent enlistment?? Marine went through prior physcial training, went to MEPS, then during week four or so suffered a broken foot. Fraudulent enlistment. He had a broken foot before enlistment. So how did he do the prior four weeks of running with the recruiter? I have as a VSO tried to turn these around but the Review board for both services say they lied.

There is a similar situation discussed within this forum under "VA Denied Roomate's Claim." The last post was 30 Sep 07 so you would have to go back only one or two screens to read it. (or use the search engine on Hadit).

I used to crap on myself when I was one so I guess this explains my current IBS. Dang those DoD guys are good. I will go turn myself and my 214 in tomorrow. Guess I will also lose my retirement pay. DoD has gotten to where it makes me sick at my belly.........some of the crap they come up with to cheat service members out of well deserved benefits is simple criminal acts. Those criminal acts, that according to them when they used to tell us that we had to fight to protect America's freedom, are only conducted by dictators and communist leaders...... hmmmmmm maybe the current DoD leaders learned too well from the same sick basta--s they trained us to kill.

Sorry, just to play devils advocate for a second. The point is simple to kill any life time benefits before they start period. It used to be very easy to get a rating right off the bat and out the door on a medical for something like these, but now nearly impossible due to this new war on terror is being terror on its own people. I have severe physical and health problems service connected served close to 7 1/2 years active USA and have to take a seat in the back and along number. My wife has a uncle who did half basic training during early 70's found out he was diabetic at 22 years old and receives 100% IU and never worked a day, which makes me sick by the way. Those days are gone. The people who really need it have to wait and fight hard for it. It doesn't seem fair but that because it isn't.RC

Just to add- this idea that we are all waiting so long for claims resolve due to the Iraq and Afnagistan vet's claims is simply not borne out by fact-

the VA Monday Morning Reports:

http://www.vba.va.gov/bln/201/reports/MMWL...ber%2001-07.xls

Do NOT show some big increase in claims for most of the VAROs- my VARO suddenly has less claims that I thought-

Many newly returning vets claims were handled by Winston Salem anyhow-as well as the VAROs closest to where these vets were getting VA medical inhouse care.

Pre discharge VA claims- show as not the incredibly high amount that the VA blames the delays on.

The VA delays and the backlog started years ago before GWOT and Iraq War.

Yep, but... they are hiring another 1000 raters, but expect them to take 18-24 months before they become experienced enough to start making a difference. About that time, there should be another surge in applications so.... well just have to see.

  • question-001.jpeg

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • 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.

    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
