Question

I have come to understand the VARO and how it works. Pete53 thanks for telling and reminding us to get that c-file. This is some examples I've found of just plain wrong crap and I strongly feel the more things change the more they remain the same.

When I was released from service I was low balled by the Army and then screw by Bay pines and as bad as INDY is Bay pines Fla takes the cake! This exam below was done 2 months after release from service. One has to bare in mine from 98 on back most soldiers have know idea what it means when they are released from service on a medical discharge and in 95 getting a copy of your SMR's was really unheard of or that you even need them. After going threw my C-file I am finding some good stuff Bay pines did a C&P on my medical issues.

1. Where I broke my back and was discharged with 40%

2. Where I broke my L-Foot and had years of problems and surgery and more problem to the point I could no longer wear boots most of the time. I have a binder 3" thick just from severe L-foot problem and was rated 0% even at release from service. Bay Pines C&P said My foot hurt but my low back was my main concern 0% for Foot. That was my C&P , no measurements, no test, no exams, no review of medical records pretty much we think this looks like 0%,lol, ha, ha. John999, Carlie you guys are dealing with the devil, man I feel sorry for you guys. You guys make me glad I'm in INDY and they suck too..I have a service history of foot pain and they made up there own diagnosis out of the air. I never even knew this C&P existed an was never notified......

I am assuming 0% means no more of a problem(but they say it is still a problem) that is what makes this so bizarre. They made this Diagnosis with no exams, nada and there is no way they looked at my c-file with 3 to for 4 years history of problems and surgery................

I still say you need to scoop up the wife and kids and move down to Tennessee. You'd be very happy with the Nashville VARO. B)

I won my claims at the ST. Petersburg VARO. You have to have the evidence to just ram it down their throats. The VARO's are all the same in my book. Screw the vet and keep the money.

and ram it down, and ram it down, and ram it down, and ram it down ---

then you wake up and 25 years of ramming have passed - and then you realize

THEY are the ones doing the ramming!

Carlie:

I always knew who was ramming me. After I got Social Security it was a point of honor to win against the VA. I really don't think that many who work at the VA understand what Honor Means.

  • 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.
