30% is too much for a VA lawyer to charge. I believe they have to stick with 20% of your retro. Lawyers representing vets have certain guidelines they have to follow regarding fees. I would question charging 30% of retro.

I use the services of Mr. Gregory Keenum in Boonesville, MS. Good guy. If it wasn't for him handling the case, I would have already taken a ball bat to the VARO in Jackson......

Last night I hand delivered a letter personally to Roger Wicker at the Desoto County rally. I am literally begging and pleading now after seventy-eight months to bring closure to a case the BVA has ruled on in my favor. Just finish it so I can put this behind me.

I swear to God we should just all be out in the damned streets protesting the VA. Make it public, make it loud.

Find me 100 volunteers! I swear to God we should march, hobble, crawl, or roll our way into a VARO facility and start raising hell!

Anybody in Mississippi interested in meeting in Jackson, MS? We need to organize, we need to lead. All of us older vets need to put pressure in the system so the younger vets won't have to put up with this.

700 billion for Wall Street, not shit for the vets. We fight, the civilians enjoy the good life.

Is there no help for the widow's son?

yep they got it setup so you will die before you can get anything

8 years to get thirty per cent and if i fight 8 more years i might not

be alive. 62 now + 8= 72 and still might not be through with the

process.

  • 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.
