Question

http://www.bluewaternavy.org/07-7037P.pdf

also Sue Belanger -the notable AO advocate here in NY sent me this news:

"Note: The possibility for an 'en blank' hearing

by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is still an open question,

since NVLSP requested both types of re-hearings and this denial addresses only one of those. "

She means en banc- a full court hearing-all members present-

Another vet assessed the news as due to the way the NVLSP brief was prepared- I know attorney who also filed a amicus curiae brief on this- havent heard from him yet-

This will be discussed on the BWN and AO outside of Nam vet communities alot during next few days-- and I will post any more info I get-

there is always the chance that Haas is going to the Supremes too-

PLEASE ask your Senators and Congressman and women to support HR 6562-

if we cant get AO equity from the Haas case- maybe HR 6562 will finally give it to vets with disabilities on the AO presumptive list who were exposed to AO ouitside of Nam- and the Korean reg limits.And to their survivors and dependents.

James thanks again-

I know you could write a book on your AO situation-

I will mention to Jerrel again- as to SVR-

They want me to do two shows a month with Jim Strickland so that leaves Jerrel with two shows of his own-to book-

The recent VA news and other factors determine the bookings and we give precedence to Congressman Filner and anyone else on the H VAC-due to their schedules but I know you will make an excellent guest-and your information is as important as anything from the H VAC- in my opinion-

This issue is also one that I keep a Keen interest in. I am amazed that the VA would not consider the waters off shore in VN as part of the AO coverage area.

I am helping a Vet who was on the USS Mars and has had Prostrate Canccer, Hypertension issues including a repaired Anruysm.

The VA has told him he has no boots on the ground so he was actually denied.

He also got hit with the old PD copout the VA uses to bypass PTSD.

He recalls swim call in the Tonkin Gulf and eating the fish the Divers caught. I have seen the photos.

  • 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.

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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
