I've had the same experience with the local DAV and the DAV co-located with the VARO.

I don't believe this to be isolated to this area of the country, and also not limited to the DAV...VFW have selective memory too when it comes to calling or emailing back. Let's not forget the StateVets Commission SO too. I am still waiting for the return call from weeks ago...assured it would be in 1 or 2 days. Maybe she meant to say 1 or 2 years. :unsure:

my 22month journey started with the DAV rep not taking my case because it could not be won because I did not have treatment records (12 yrs) spanning the entire time from seperation to present day. He had no idea what the laws/regs were for getting a condition sc'd. I told him about the three hickson elements (current disability,inservice occurance and link connecting the two) and he had no idea what I was talking about.

I went down the hall to the american legion. They accepted me and gave me a note to take to my dr and get him to sign. That didn;'t work either. I found this site and Dr. Bash. I was sc'd in 60 days without a c&p.

The DAV does not return calls in Tampa either. They are the worst. None of them are much good, but I found the county reps the best here in Florida. None of them can argue a complicated case.

About 7 or 8 years ago, I had the call not returned problem with the Columbia DAV Office. I finally had enough & wrote the National Commander a nice letter. Guess what, the head of the office called me. He wanted to know why I hadn't called them with my problem before going to national.

When I finished with him, he didn't have any more questions except what can we do for you. I told him I wanted my damn claim returned to BVA. Within week my file was in DC & shortly had my increase to 50% with more than 5 years back pay.

  • 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.

    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
