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.

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.

Subject: FW: Support HR 2254 the Agent Orange Equity Act
Please take the time to email your Congress people to get HR 2254 out of committee, supported by your Congress people and passed by emailing your elected officials or using the link:
Just change the zip code and address to your name and address..
This bill specifically lists Johnston Island as a source for Agent Orange exposure, which is where my rare Soft Tissue Sarcoma (Liposarcoma) cancer source came from. VA right now doesn't recognize Johnston Island as a source for exposure and has denighed many Vet's their due disability!!
It also includes the Navy folks who have been turned down by VA too.
Thanks a Million in helping to right this injustice!!
