Do You Think This Will Help Veterans?

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.

Question

  • Moderator

What if..

We hadit members elected a great spokesperson...Names like Berta, Tbird, Rental guy come to mind. This spokesperson has a webcam, and knows how or will get help posting a "you tube" video.

Then, this person posts a You tube Video with a title something like, "How can the VA do this to our Veterans?"

Then, this person states "our" case TO THE PUBLIC. It would need to be someone with writing skills, and maybe public speaking skills, since many Vets dont have those skills, our spokesperson will represent us..not the DAV, not the VFW, not Congressman Hall, but someone whose opinion we think most accurately represents VETRANS. I even think maybe this person should meet with Mr. Shinseki, or even Mr. Obama to tell OUR SIDE of the story.

Berta did a good job of that already, I thought at the March 3 hearing. I just think we need to put the pressure on with a you tube video..gee, it may even help to get someone to watch it if we get a great looking woman to be on the video, also!

Kind of like creating our own Veterans organization, "Hadit"

Tell me what you think.

bronco,

Yes, I also feel this is something Steppen has been

posting about for a couple of years, on and off.

There are hundreds of you tube and internet videos

concerning veterans having to fight with VA for their

benefits and maybe the more we have the better.

jmho,

  • 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.

    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
