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

    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

That's good and there are about 20 other diseases that are caused by dioxin exposure they should add before we are all dead. What is the average age of Vietnam vets now? I bet it is over 60 years of age. Time is running out for us.

The Ischemic heart disease could turn out to be a biggie.


Ya know, I once had a job. It was a very interesting job. My job was to make sure that none of the spray nozzles were clogged.

Now, that there was a really interesting job. Why?. Well, because it has haunted me for the last 40 years.

I'm pretty healthy, on the outside, on the inside my mind is all eaten up. They have never been able to take the fear away.

When you wake up every morning thinking, "Well, this is the day that they find out I'm gonna die from............well, geeeez, let's play "Pick a Disease", okay?"

Sometimes I think I'd be better off just beating the grim reaper to the punch and ending it, before it eats the rest of my soul.

I lay awake at night, thinking....................spent from 0200 to 0600 last night, laying there...........sucks, but I can't take enough sleep meds sometimes, sometimes they didn't MAKE enough sleep meds for me to take.

I know, I know, hell, it could be a LOT worse...................I could be really sick, DMII, cancer, PICK A DISEASE!

Ya, I make jokes. Hell, I'm the life of the party. I'm one funny guy!

Larry, I talked to a Vet who in 1968 was stationed in korea and his job was an aircrewman on the Birds that had the sprayers under the wings and his job was to help clean them. So far he has had no issues but he did say almost everyone in his unit has had some type of cancer, Diabetes, All Kinds ofproblems and A lot of his comrads were Already gone.

Explain ischemic heart disease as opposed to other types of heart disease? If the VA were to admit that "heart disease" was presumptive for AO that would open the gates for those of us that are left. Does anyone even know how many RVN vets are left? There were 3 million I think. Supposedly I am connected for CAD via DMII via AO. What is the difference between ischemic and CAD? If I die from brain cancer, or something not presumptive I am really going to be disappointed.

    • 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...
