Va Ptsd Claims


NavMarVet

Question

I am very new to this blog thing, but have been fighting the good fight now for over fourteen years. Yes you heard right. I have already been denied my request under the OLD GI Bill? I am a Veteran of two branches of the Military with all Honorable Discharges on record.

It has occurred to me that we as Veterans have to get our collective stuff together in the form of a political party of some sort? That is, not the Am Legion, DAV, or other organization, but our own. What I mean here is that only the guys and gals who have been there and done that will know exactly what I mean. The ONLY way to bring about change to the VA is to have political power in Congress & the White House. To do that we must unite with one purpose in mind. That if a politician isn't going to fully endorse and legislate laws taking care of us, then they must be aware that they have us to reckon with as a major player in politics.

From all the articles I have read here, there are many Vets who are very knowledgable about our plights and fights, and how the VA works. Again I call for us to unite against the common enemy who finds any and all excuses to deny what we have earned, worked for, eliglble for, and did I mention paid for in the form of Taxes.

I can't over emphasize that we must unite. The question is how, and behind whom? I have had to pick up the fight from the so called VSO's who really don't care if you die or not. Which is the VA way of doing business. All the smoke and mirrors of public hoopla is just that, a crock. In reality they could care less if you and I get whats coming to us by law. Which reminds me, did any of you out there know that the VA in conjunction with the Social Security Administration, and the Dept. of Health and Human Services (who computes the poverty levels) places a cap on the amount of compensation or pension we get? There is a maximum that a Vet can can get if they can get through the VA BS.

We need to get this changed as well as many other out dated laws that are designed to deny us who have provided the very fabric of what this country is supposed to be about. The welfare peoples out there have more rights and benefits than we do? If anyone who reads this out there wants to say hi and discuss things further I can currently be reached at rlamborn1@tampabay.rr.com Would love to hear from fellow Vets and concerned people who really care enough to actually do something to change and reform the system. :D

[ "The ONLY way to bring about change to the VA is to have political power in Congress & the White House." NavMarVet ] Awarding punitive damages when appropriate, and an active "VA employee Orange Jump Suit Program" would do wonders to bring about change in the VA system.

There is a BONA FIDE Veterans Political Party in

Alaska - Florida and Maine: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G08/parties.phtml?party=VPOA

I belonged to it for two years and was not allowed to vote in our primary's

so I got out of it right after that.

Also,

I'm with CMDR. Bob - nothing that a little cash would't do.

If we were awarded interest on retro payments that would add some incentive to speed up these claims. However, since the VA is spending taxpayer money they probably don't give a rat's ass anyway. No, no, the VA must be surrounded and blown up, hypothetically speaking. There is no other way,
