United We Roll

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.





On Tuesday 3-5 EDT, Judi Barnes is hosting a show regarding the high rates of suicides in veterans and she has some good guests lined up-

the last hour of the will be hosted by Jerrel Cook from SVR.

I am sure our SVR Wednesday show will also do some follow up to this important subject-

I will read Dr. Kussman's (VHA) letter on the air again-

as he gave veterans and families members much good advise on this horrific tragedy that is befalling so many veterans.

An Iraq vet recently at the VCS blog has noted a very high incidence in his area (Oregon -Washington state)of suicides in Iraq vets there and I posted here some time ago how a father of a deceased vet who committed suicide on the east coast had found 4 other veterans,dead due to suicide, in his locale who also had been on the same meds that VA prescribed.

Not only can war trauma cause the devasting pattern of suicial ideation but some meds can too.

This show be an informative show and I hope many will listen to it.

"United We Roll" button at Stardust Radio- chat room available -toll free call ins 1-877-213-4329-

and the Suicide hot line - 1-800-273-8255.

I am trying to obtain a VA suicide expert and behavioral co ordinator as a guest for one of these shows in the future.

Anybody want to listen live is welcome in the chat room. You can listen and ask question by calling in or writing in the Chat Room on the Wednesday 5:30 to 7:00 pm CST. The Tuesday United We Roll chat room is also open for listening live. Berta has posted the phone number for callers. If you call while listening to the broadcast you have to turn your speakers down because there is a delay in the audio that makes feed back.

  • 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.


    • 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.

    • 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.

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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
