    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”
     
    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.

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

    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

Gray Area Mil Rets

Question

Received from Colonel Dan:

"LEGISLATIVE ALERT #08-13

September 16, 2008

_____

The Issue: TRICARE FOR GRAY AREA RETIREES

Immediate Action Required: Contact your Senators and urge them to

support

SA 5281 sponsored by Sen. Nelson (D-NE) which is being offered this

week as

a floor amendment to the Fiscal Year 2009 National Defense

Authorization

Bill (S. 3001)

_____

SA 5281 is co-sponsored by Sens. Clinton (D-NY), Smith (R-OR),

Sessions

(R-AL), and Graham (R-SC). It would authorize all Gray Area Retirees

(Reserve Component retirees who have not attained the age of 60) and

their

families, now only eligible to receive Reserve Retirement Pay and

TRICARE at

age 60, to purchase TRICARE Standard coverage at a premium equal to

the full

cost of coverage to the Department of Defense as determined by the

Secretary

of Defense on an actuarial basis. This coverage is to be made

available no

later than October 1, 2009. The Senate Armed Services Committee has

included

this as a managers' amendment to S. 3001 which gives it an excellent

chance

of being included in the Senate NDAA that will be sent to a Joint

Conference

with the House NDAA.

TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTION:

By using the "Write to Congress" you can IMMEDIATELY e-mail your

elected

representatives. A sample letter is included in our "Write to

Congress"

feature on our Web site. You can e-mail the pre-written message or

edit the

sample letter as you desire. This is the quickest and most effective

method

of expressing your views to Congress. Also, contact your friends and

family

and urge them to "Write to Congress" as well. For more in-depth

information

and background visit our web site at www.ngaus.org.

Please direct any questions concerning this issue to Pete Duffy, NGAUS

Deputy Legislative Director at 202-454-5307 or email: pete.duffy@..."
