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.




"First - Alan tells me that Congressman Filner contacted one of their Parkinson's Group and indicated he will push to get the Parkinson's bill passed after Congress returns. Great News on that issue!

Second - I think most of us already knew this...but reviewing the great Point Man Project early in our issue it was clear that the 9th Marine Regiment had significant higher residual values of the TCDD and all the other variants of herbicide than the other exposed comparison group. There are many confounding and contributing factors that can be attributed to this found fact. What does this mean overall?

If you are us...it means that in some cases you would see possible different issues develop in a lower dose similar comparison group. Not because the dose issue is linear vs outcome but seems to be of a step linear function. In fact, in some cases the lower dose triggers issues that as the level goes up changes to something else or even can cease in that single damaged function and another area is then compromised in function. The issue has always been most of our studies as I have pointed out with scientists own conclusions - many of our medical issues were never brought forward because they did not meet the definition of linear.

It seems the key is at what level per individual does this step function take place and that my friends seems as wide as there are genetic differences.

The result...denials based on a false premise.

Third - Who in Congress Knew and Did Nothing?

Agent Orange listed on death certificate

Updated at 7:19pm on 3 October 2008

Exposure to Agent Orange has been listed on a death certificate as a contributing cause of death for what is believed to be the first time.

Pat Hauwai, 65, died on 24 September, a month after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

The death certificate says Mr Hauwai died from carcinoma of the lungs, because of cigarette smoking and exposure to Agent Orange.

The Ex-Vietnam Services Association says it does not know of any other cases where the toxin has been listed on a death certificate.

National president Terry Culley says Mr Hauwai's case might encourage more doctors to list Agent Orange as a cause of death. He says compensation varies between $20,000 to $40,000.

Minister for Veteran's Affairs Rick Barker says a centre is being established to help doctors dealing with patients suffering from exposure to Agent Orange.

Mr Barker says the process is expected to take several months.

    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.
