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?”

Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

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

Immediate Action Required: Contact your Senators and Representative, and urge them to support Section 105 of the House version of the FY2010 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) during conference negotiations to authorize $600 million for NGREA
Sample message below or go to web site and type in zip code
The National Guard and Reserve Equipment Account (NGREA) provides direct funding to the reserve components, in our case the Chief of the National Guard Bureau, which can be used to procure equipment and modernization.
NGREA funds are transparent, allowing the National Guard to procure a wide variety of "Essential 10" capabilities for domestic operations such as; Joint Force Headquarters Command and Control, Civil Support Teams, Maintenance, Engineer, Medical, Communications, Transportation, Security, and Logistics and more.
Section 105 of the House version of the FY2010 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizes $600 million for NGREA. The Senate version would provide a lesser amount.
I strongly urge you to support Section 105 of the House version of the FY2010 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) during conference negotiations to authorize $600 million for the National Guard and Reserve Equipment Account.
