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.
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.

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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.

From Jerrel Cook- SVR Host:
"Wednesday 16 July 2008 - Edwin Crosby III.
INFO: Edwin served in the USAF from 1966-1971. He volunteered to go to Vietnam and served in MACVSOG, 15th Special Operations Squadron, Nha Trang, AB, RVN from November 1968 to June 1970.

The case was originally filed in the US District Court, Northern District of New York, Syracuse. He has been fighting this case on behalf of all veterans and has been instrumental in having the D.O.D. change his DD-214 many times to prevent future damage to other veterans. e-mail: ECROSBY1@rochester.rr.com
