    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.

    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

Summit Brings Renewed VA Drive for Women Veterans

Peake: Reinventing to be "Women-Centric"

WASHINGTON (July 11, 2008) - An aggressive push to ensure women veterans

receive the highest quality of care in VA medical facilities was pledged

by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. James B. Peake at a recent VA

National Summit on Women Veterans' Issues.

Although VA already has services for women patients equal to those men

receive, Peake told the audience of more than 400 women-veteran

advocates, "We are reinventing ourselves by expanding our women-centric

focus to initiate new programs that meet the needs of women veterans."

Citing the demographic shift that brings increasing numbers of women to

VA for care and the need for changes, Peake announced formation of a

work group to focus on women's needs in prosthetics and rehabilitation,

hiring women's advocates in VA medical centers, developing quality

measurements specifically for women patients, purchasing more

state-of-the-art, specialized women's health care equipment, and

expanding medical education in women's health for VA care providers.

Summit attendees also learned that VA recently established a work group

whose goal is to ensure every female veteran enrolled in VA care has a

women's health primary care provider, especially to meet gender-specific


The June 20-22 conference in Washington focused on how to ensure VA

meets women-specific health needs and how to inform more women veterans

of their VA benefits. It was the fourth women's summit, which VA holds

every four years.

Summit co-sponsors included the American Legion Auxiliary, AMVETS,

Disabled American Veterans and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Other

assisting veterans groups included the Blinded Veterans Association,

Military Officers Association of America, Paralyzed Veterans of America,

the American Legion, Vietnam Veterans of America and TriWest.
