Current Secretary's Name And E-mail, Please!

Guest Jim S.


With the new board set up, will their be a place for up to date contact information, not only for the Secretary, but for others, such as Senetors and Representatives, etc.?

I could use the current E-mail address for the Secretary of Veteran Affairs. I'd like to send him a note on my CUE claim and how no one who is handling calls, at my local VARO, seems to know what one is and what my claim is for and not a new claim to reopen or an appeal of one.

They don't seem to have a notion of a claim under 38 CFR 3.105, as to what to call it or list it in the information on their computrer's. I wonder with a bit of worry, that they don't even know how to go about developing such a claim, by all the mixed signals I am getting, each time I call to update myself on their progress.

Talking to them in person, is like talking to a Red back Mule, you need a strong arm and a good two by four, to get their attention with first, and that's no laughing matter either.

A link to these addresses and such would be nice, so I don't have to waist time searching for them.

Our new Secret tary has not ever posted an e mail address I can give you a person who works there e mail addy, but e mail me, I do not want to mess up a good thing. It seems as if he does not want to talk with "veterans" he might get cornered. From what I have seen in the paer, he doesn;'t like to do the meet the veteran gatherings that Principi did all the time. He;s an important person, he appears to be to busy to be bothered, maybe it's because he's still working on that "new" cure for PTSD he keeps talking about. My e mail is testvet@aol.com

    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.
    • 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
