We did forward it to local media and haven't heard a word out it other than those blogs.

I have a bot searching for references to this situation. It is returning hits about 6-7 per day.

With one exception, the hits are only from blogs and forums. That isn't going to get the job done. We need for this to be reported in the MSM or it really is going to get swept under the rug.

My suggestion is to email Larry's articles directly to the media out lets where each one of us lives.

I've forwarded it to every local newspaper, news station, and haven't heard or seen a thing about it. I'm getting mad. It would appear that they are all in this together!

I just forwarded it to Shepard Smith at Fox news. Hopefully, if you all email him as well, it will get some national attention. The email address I used is:

Here is a quote from a Letter I sent my representatives.

As evidence suggests, there is an ongoing nationwide problem with shear disorganization at the regional offices.

From Shredding Veterans claims to inserting information belonging to someone else in a C File.

How do we cope with this activity. Is it a mistake or is it done intentionally? If it is intentional (as the conspiracy theorist imply, then lets not waiver in our resolve to correct this wrong.

There are Veterans in the system who are suffering in great detain weather it be financially, emotionally or medically.

The bottom line is that the system should not be allowed to continue this activity.

With the past problems, such as the stolen laptop, the issues at Walter Reed, and this current horrible event. When is this activity going to cease and why has our elected representatives not stepped in and corrected this unruly and uncontrolled branch of our government. Why are they allowed to operate?

I've forwarded this story as well. I think the cold truth is that no one gives a shit about veterans. Maybe on this upcoming Veterans Day, if anyone here is interviewed, or anyone you know is interviewed (that seems to be the only time the media cares)....that would be the time to bring up the truth about what is really going on within the VA.

  • 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?

    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
