    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

Your Kidding Me Right?

Question

In the past we have tried to seek info to debunk information that was out there used to scare us and freak us out. I was not trying to be political or espouse any belief system. I was merely trying to see if anyone could figure this out to calm my nerves also. Anybody that has been on this site more than a day should know that I am not a person with malice towards my fellow vets. This was posted on a site hosted by the wife of an active duty MSG buddy of mine whom has more than 3 combat tours and at least 200 combat missions under belt.

I read this site for years before I joined and I thought we sought the truth in such matters.

It was closed cause it could be very upsetting to many Veterans here. It can still be read. The source of this was unsubstantiated post to a Bulletin Board although under the auspices of a Catholic Magazine. Several Members complained about it.

Posts like this are political and religious both reasons on Hadit not to allow the Post.

If you want run it down and show a link to the so called VA Pamphlet and a good bio of the author. If you take the time to dig you will see that it has a political agenda to try and cause problems for the current administration who is trying to get healtcare insurance for over 50 Million uninsured Americans.

Pete,

It was not meant that way and was more like a question about is this something the VA is doing. No one ever suggests that when the VA gives us HIV/HEP free with our colonoscopy, or shreds our documents that it is a political statement. My experience with the government has never been one of trust as we have to constantly remind them of the case law that pertains to them. I am not catholic, nor a conservative, but I like to question information that comes my way. The level of paranoia and anxiety I live with on a daily basis helps keep me on guard regardless of the amount of medication the doctors prescribe.

Yours truly

Mike

I recall asking--begging--a while back for a post that scared many vets on here to be removed and it took days for the post to suddenly completely, magically disappear. Why? There seems to be a double standard when it comes to questionable posts.

I don't know Purple, I do know that seeking meds and the advice that I have gotten here has kept me from offing myself. Right now I feel very alone......

    • 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...
