    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

Ptsd The Effects Or Rvn/drill Sergeant Duty/reruiting Duty

Question

I went from 18 year old boy to becoming a man and combat Veteran In RVN, where I had to lead, make decisions, that cause death to the enemy and brothers of my unit. At nineteen I become a Drill Sergeant that trained 95% to go to the War Zone.

At 21, I became a Army Recruiter that recruited primarily for RVN, I sold infantry, my recruits went to WAR. My assignments from 1966 to 1981, were highly stressful and intense. The three types of assignments were 101 ABN infantry, RVN, RVN, DS duty, Recruting duty and Drill Sergeant and again Recriting duty. Since my assignments my positions in Army and now as a civilian have seem meaningless. Whats your advice, I had many jobs, and move at the first opportunity. I find things wrong in the job and the people I work around

sgmdae,

Welcome to Hadit.

Have you gotten a diagnosis of PTSD yet and/or filed a claim for it?

I am in the process, I trying to capture all the causes, I have stressor from RVN, Trainee dying in my platoon, and peole that recruited not coming home. I have tried to get my first mental health appointment since August. But because I move so much to work, I can't seem to get that first appointment. Thinking about this has been so stressful, new situations keep coming back

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
