This wasn't addressed to me, but since I have no life and nothing to do but look at a computer screen,

I offer the following:

Creighton Williams Abrams Jr. (September 15, 1914September 4, 1974) was a United States Army General.

He married Julia Bertha Abrams (1915 - 2003) in 1936. She founded the Army group of "Arlington Ladies" and devoted a great deal of her time to humanitarian causes. They had three daughters and three sons. The sons all became Army officers, and all of the daughters married Army officers. Survivors include three sons, retired Army Brigadier Gen. Creighton Williams Abrams III of Springfield, retired Army General John Nelson Abrams of Annandale and Brigadier General Robert Bruce Abrams of Texas; three daughters, Noel Bradley of Buffalo, Jeanne Daly of Annandale and Elizabeth Doyle of Nashville; 19 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

That is really quite interesting and also impressive, all in one family.

Carlie-if you mean Ron Abrams, NVLSP) I doubt he is related to them-

Ron was a Philadelphia VARO employee and then was employed by VACO and was instrumental in developing M21-1. Since then- as co director of NVLSP, a pro bono lawyers consortium for veteran's advocacy-he has helped THOUSANDS of veterans to succeed in their claims.

The VBM alone by NVLSP should be on the desk of every vet rep and NSO but it isnt-I donated 2 or 3 copies of it to my POA and it never got used.All of the NVLSP lawyers like Abrams who have input into this manual have a pulse on the way VA thinks and uses the regs.

Ron- who I have talked to many times since 1991- is also a civilian and completely dedicated to helping veterans attain their rightful VA benefits.

His H VAC testimony is always superb and of course he and others at NVLSP are diligently fighting for BWN vets and an eventual Haas success story.

I think NVLSP is the cream of the crop - they are even starting a new program for OIF OEF vets in a direct way to help them with their claims-

I heard the office space for this wasn't even set up and they were unready deluged with calls and mail on this program.

When I get full particulars on it-I will post it all here.

Ron,

Thanks for all the info.

Berta,

Yes, the Ron Abrams from NVLSP is the one I was in question about.

  • 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.
