This link didnt work for me Tbird-

maybe just a referral to NVLSP web site would be good?

Agent Orange advocates have done a lot of WORK-

The Agent Orange Equity Act might come to pass-and Kurt Priessman has written an inclusion to the actual regs - that Congressman Filner will be considering.

I helped with 2 parts of it- Nehmer has to be clearly spelled out as to its standing relationship to ALL AO vet claims,and I had a long talk with Rick Spaturo the other day as to Nehmer and all future AO vet claims-(NVLSP never considered the potential inclusion of other AO vets at other locales)

My point is the AO subject is in a fluid situation and we have Never had before this incredible opportunity to get full equity for ALL vets exposed to AO regardless of where.I am grateful to be a small part of this and advocates and vets have been working very hard on it and it sure it a lot of work-

I will respond to any AO questions I see in the regular forum-even if they dont access the info here-

but often have to refer these vets to NVLSP site and the Nehmer order anyhow because AO is an intricate maze of regs and the medical criterias are detailed too in many cases.

Haas too could change everything as well-NVLSP has appealed the Fed Circuit decision in Haas.

GREAT Tbird- alink via Google- this is GREAT!

AO claims are often so complex sometimes (like STS metasized cancer AO claims) and even Ao DIC claims that this is a great idea-a Google link!

Saves me time too because sometimes I spent more time finding and posting links here for questions at hadit

than I have time for any other posts-

Berta,

My husband is 100% disabled for PTSD. He has several other illinesses some of which are on the

Agent Orange list. He talked to a Vet Rep at the VA hospital last week to see about filing again

for this and was told that if he did the VA could possibly take away part of this 100% he already

has. Is this true? Please let me know if I need to post this somewhere else.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • 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.
