    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost 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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

  • HadIt.com Elder

JP-5 AND JP-8 9



The primary purpose of this chapter is to provide public health officials, physicians, toxicologists, and other

interested individuals and groups with an overall perspective of the toxicology of JP-5 and JP-8. It contains

descriptions and evaluations of toxicological studies and epidemiological investigations and provides

conclusions, where possible, on the relevance of toxicity and toxicokinetic data to public health.

A glossary and list of acronyms, abbreviations, and symbols can be found at the end of this profile.

If the Gov wanted a real study with Rats and Dogs here is what they should do.

First simulate VN conditions aboard an Aircraft Carrier. Burnt JP-5 (spent fuel) with dioxin smoke abatement in it, tie 12 rats and 12 dogs to the pad eyes on the fantail of a carrier leaving them up there 12 hours a day 7 days per week. Give these animals about a year there, and then test for results.

It's fine for sailors, but not animals.

Animal rights activists would be screaming.

I worked in the fireroom of a destroyer and used the JP5 to clean the oil and carbon from the fuel injection tubes. Plus we also used it to clean the bilges prior to painting them and to clean the paint brushes. We got JP5 on our hands and I don't remember having a reaction to it. After so many years I hope that there are no dormant illnesses that will flare up because of that exposure.

I served during a time when not much was known about hazardous chemical exposure. The Navy and the VA have not made any effort to notify Veterans about the dangers of hazardous chemical exposure during their enlistment. And to add insult to injury the VA makes it very difficult for veterans to prove hazardous chemical exposure. The VA has information on military occupations and their environmental factors, but still makes veterans go through hell to prove exposure. Thanks.

This study goes into the effects of JP-5 and JP-8 vapors effects. The really worst situation is when toxic dioxins are burned and breathed, that is 10 times worst.

Plastic bottles burning fumes are deadly. This is the same way that it is with Jet Fuels and Ships NSFO (ships fuel oil).
