    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

Heart Conditions



Good Morning to All! John and I went camping this last week. We talked to a Vietnam Vet. He has a lot of medical problems, as of now he is getting 100% because he has postrate cancer, put was told his % will be droping because postrate cancer is cureable. Ok he went to his VA Rep to appeal and his Rep also told him that they are now accepting heart conditions, ( with out having DMII) which he filed many years ago and was denied.

Has anyone heard or now about heart conditons being accepted for compensation? I have been looking and have not found out anything. The only thing I found is with DMII.

Thanks JohnM's Wife Dianne

With medical evidence of any inservice heart disease- the VA will service connect heart disease on a direct basis.

I dont know where the rep got the idea that VA is now 'accepting' heart disease claims.

Many vets and reps were misled by a story in the El Paso Newspaper some months ago-

a rep from TVC "embellished" a story as to AO and HBP-

of course HBP can lead to heart disease.

I did all I could to get the story corrected-

maybe this is what the rep is thinking about-the story said the VA was 'accepting' HBP AO claims.

The VA 'accepts' any type of claim at all-

there is nothing new as to heart disease in the regs.

NVLSP always has said that there could always be potential for heart disease to eventually get on the AO presumptive list- still- if and when that ever happens- every vet on the net will know it right away.

I think the VA will wait until most Vietnam vets are 95 years old before making heart disease presumptive for AO. They know what it will cost them for DMII and they won't make the same mistake twice.
