Do You Have Plans For Veterans Day, Next Tuesday, November 11th?

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.

vetsdayemail1.gifDo you have plans for Veterans Day, next Tuesday, November 11th? If you're hosting or attending an event in your neighborhood, take a minute to tell us about it here, and we'll help spread the word to other people in your area.

November 11th is an incredibly important day- a time to honor the men and women who have bravely served our country in uniform. Our online events tool makes it easy for you to connect with others in your neighborhood who want to show their support.

Please take a minute to post your Veterans Day event here, and then use the tool to invite your friends.

Last year, over a hundred events were posted on our event site. From parades and picnics to baseball games and BBQs, civilians and veterans alike gathered around the country to celebrate the service of those in the armed forces. Tell us about your event here, and we'll help you get the word out by posting it on our site - it only takes a minute.

If you're going to be in New York City the following day- November 12th- I'd like to invite you to attend IAVA's Second Annual Heroes Gala.

At the Gala, we will honor the extraordinary service of Warrior Champions Scott Winkler and Carlos Leon, along with the Chairman of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Arnold Fisher. We will be joined by leading members of the veterans' community and IAVA Supporters, as well as special guest Henry Rollins. You might even walk away with one of the incredible prizes available at the Silent Auction- including VIP tickets to the Colbert Report, a private trip on a Sea Plane or an original Doonesbury pen and ink drawing by Garry Trudeau.

The gala promises to be an amazing event and I'd like to invite you, as an IAVA Supporter, to attend. To purchase your ticket, visit IAVAHeroesGala.org. If you are unable to join us, please consider a donation of any amount towards a ticket for a veteran of Iraq or Afghanistan.

Thank you for honoring our country's heroes.

  • 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.


    • 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.

    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
