    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Vamc - New Appointment....



VAMC has started sending out a new type of Appointment reminder.

Instead of a letter it is an Appointment Card.

I got my 1st one this week, it's about the size of an Index Card.

Here's a Copy of it.


I hope I get this posted right.

I had to call the vamc to make an appt yesterday, and they said a postcard had been mailed concerning another appointment. I didn't think much about it, but I guess this is what they meant.

I got a call from my VAMC for a guy with my last name. They send us a letter and call also. I wish they did that with C&P exams.

San Antonio still calls, a day or two before the appointment... I like it better than a mail reminder which will end up in the trash with other junk mail and forgotten...

Fayetteville Ar. VAMC, works so fast it is hard to get a letter before an appointment. Meds usually come next day.

I had a surgery consult today (Tuesday), and I was given a surgery appointment for (Thursday). Even though the scars are real big, this VAMC is quick to do anything. This Arkansas VAMC is the fastest most efficient hospital that I have ever seen.
