    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?”
    • 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.

No-if you mean Tom Kelly who used to post here alot-

Jerrel Cook just emailed me a little more on Charles and the show:

Wednesday 25 June 2008 - Charles Kelley.

"INFO: Charles wrote the book "Viet Nam's Rain Agents, Orange, White, and Blue". Kelley's engineering background is displayed by his analytical and scientific thinking. He demonstrates his ability to utilize scientific analysis, legal data, medical information and stamina to cut through the bureaucratic and political red tape to show the horrific physical and psychological disorders and genetic defects from exposure to dioxin and other chemicals used in the war by the US Government.

The author's intensive and exhaustive research leaves many questions to be answered by the Bureau of Veteran Affairs, the White House and elected officials and their appointees. Time and time again, the author shows the flawed studies, hidden records or altered documents that have led to the premature death of many veterans and the suffering of offspring due to the Veterans toxic exposure, passed on genetically. Time and again, the author shows the U.S. Government inability to give her Veterans the benefit of the doubt, as stated by law, the U.S. Government destroying or misplacing scientific data, or spinning the facts to avoid accountability for 40+ years of cover up, to avoid doing the right thing for her Warriors and future generations.

The readers may notice the author may appear personal, at times, with feelings of frustration or perhaps anger, regarding Agent Orange and the whole fiasco about its effects on the human system and the government's lack of accountability.

To better understand these personal feelings the reader must know that Charles Kelley is totally disabled due to severe polyneuropathy with muscle atrophy, Diabetes Type II, and chronic fatigue and pain. No less than 5 doctors have validated his illnesses, although the Bureau of Veterans affairs fails to recognize them as service connected due to toxic exposure during service near the DMZ in 1967-68. Mr. Kelley agonized over revealing his book, in fear of shedding a bad light on America. He is an American Hero.

This should be an interesting show. Jerrel, svr

The time for the show is 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm central time. Don't forget you can call toll free during the show.

Thanks -- Yes -- I was thinking of Tom Kelly, I appreciate your clarification.

I am drowning in VA so much that I'm not sure if I should consider your clarification

as a Notice of Disagreement, a Request for Increase or a CUE on my prior unadjudicated

thought. lol
