  • 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

Desertion By Hadit!


I sincerely hope that no one takes offense at the topic title; I will not try to talk for all AO veterans but for myself alone. The government, Veterans Administration, and now Hadit! have all relagated AO veterans to the back page, no longer worthy to discuss..

Don't believe it? Look at for the "AO FORUM" on Hadit! It is at the bottom of the introductory scree on Hadit! H.R. Bill 6562 pertaning to allowing all AO veterans exposed to Agent Orange to HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO AGENT ORANE if they received the Vietnam Service Metal.

This is the time to place the spolight on the AO problem not send it to the bottom of the page i.e. bury it like VA!

Rothomas, It was not intended to be moved on a negative note. This octapus had way too many arms branching everywhere and we had to get a grip on it. It was moved just to re arrange the board. It just happened to wind up pat its present location. We all know the importance of AO claims and I for 1 fight it every day with several vets I am working with.

We can discuss it with the MODs and TBird to move it back to a higher position on the board.

One quick question, did you know that DAV rep who set up the 2 million dollar scam at the Louisville RO.

Yes he was a lousy DAV rep 10 years ago and a lousy Supervisor for DAV. I really don't understand why the VA is so vigilant when it comes to VA Claims but has no audit procedures to stop this.

If HR 6562 were passed it would benefit a lot of AO Veterans and provide VA a well deserved kick in the ASS !

Randall, not argue with you but there is much discussion on Hadit about AO claims. Berta is the primary push on AO claims. It seems to me that most AO discussions get started in the general claims discussion forum. jmho

I support Agent Orange Veterans 100% including Blue Water and Veterans exposed to Orange in other places than Nam.

For your info AO was not deserted by Hadit it was spotlighted by its own forum.

TBird has spent countless hours trying to improve Hadit and many had asked for more Forums.

In 1995 sometimes it took 3 or 4 days for me to get a response to a simple question on Prodigy before Hadit.

However I am glad that you pointed this out. By the way I don't look for threads using Forum Page I click New Posts and usually see almost all including the ones posted in wrong forums ect.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
