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.

Yes-per Larry Scott this AM-the date is what you said-for the Sub Com Disability /Memorials.

however it looks like there will be a joint meeting with the Sub Com Investigations/ Oversight-per one of our members who also called DC and posted at Watchdog this AM.

My email to VCV was just returned- I double checked the addy and it could not go thru-

I am beginning to think I am going crazy Broncovet-you were absolutely correct-

wonder why Congressman Hall's office didnt have the right date?

I talked to the Secretary's at Mr. Filner committee's office...remember the movie 9 to 5? The Secretaries always know better what is going on before the bosses do. You are not going crazy.

Are you considering attending the Mar. 3 Shreddergate hearing? I am, however, I cant tell you how much it would mean if you were there by my side. I am HOH and dont always hear what is going on and I would love to have your "encyclopedia of Veterans knowledge" with me..that is you.

If you want to send me a personal message, we could arrange to meet in DC if you are going.

I know you are a great, great Veterans advocate..and Mr. Filner and Mr. Hall would like to hear from you. I have some convincing documents in my claim that should "bring home" this shredder issue.

In a nutshell, the RO manager testified to the CAVC that the RO (Cleveland) "did not hear" from the Veteran (me) from March 2004- January 2007. However, I have 21-4138's STAmped received by the RO for the same time period.

That means she either perjured herself in the testimony OR documents were lost or mishandled.

  • 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.

  • 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
