SHREDDING OUR TRUST IN THE VA -- 10-13-2008


Tbird
This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 

 

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.

VA investigators find entire claims and other critical documents in shredding bins at Detroit Regional Office. VA official will only say, "I can't talk about that."

All of us trusting individuals can have a cup of this coffee. I know some folks frown upon negatisim but this really hammers home the points some of us have made over the years.

They need to fire them all and start over.

I think this is the tip of the iceburg.

Another VA issue that doesn't shock me...

I have an idea....everyone who reads this should forward it to their local news media whether it be TV or newspaper. The VA really doesn't like negative media coverage and it will help to get the word out to the general public; otherwise no one other than vets will ever know about this.

I agree J because they have lost all creditably at this point..I think it would be very gullible to believe it was a few bad apples. I think it is more ramped than we all think.....I my self can not find a whole mental Health file gone and I have wrote and called everyone and it is as if it never existed. I have documents in my C-file that pertain to treatment I had completed through MH clinic and made reference to my treatment in my claim but it is still as if it never existed, even no empty jacket nothing, zip, zilch.......

It's in every layer of our government.

I wonder if they will catch the actual F**Kups that did this

AND THE HIGHER UP'S THAT GAVE DIRECTIONS to do it.

My bet is Bay Pines Florida is doing just as much illegal crap

and I wouldn't doubt BVA too, they certainly are not immune.

And they wonder why veterans and VA Claimants get attitudes.

HA HA HA HA HA - B-turds!

  • 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:

  • 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
