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.
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.
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.
Post straightforward questions and then post background information.
Question 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.
Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
Question 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.
Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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
I posted sometime ago that I was told by VA that the Stimulus direct deposit would be on the June 15, 2009. I then received a letter from VA stating they will begin releasing the payments in June but it did not have a date. It only stated that if I did not receive the payment by July 10, 2009 to contact them. Wow isn't that just like the freaking ****** If you have to pay they want their money and will charge you an interest, but if they have to pay, you get it when you get it and don't call us. We will eventually pay you if you don't die. Just for giggles I called again to find out when will it be deposited and I was told sometime between June 22, 2009 and July 10, 2009. Sorry to vent but what's mine is mine. The Stimulus was not only to pay veterans $250.00, it was also to hire new claims processors which I bet they have tried to fill or have already filled the positions they could, so basically they have their money why make us wait. No $250.00 will not make or break me but as I said, it's mine and it is already July and most people already have theirs due to filing taxes and social security. Believe me they already know who was paid what and when.
