    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?”

    • 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.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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

A Veterans Day Message From The Secretary Of Veterans Affairs



  • HadIt.com Elder


Posted on November 11, 2009 by gm

Ever since Armistice Day was declared at the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of 1919, Americans have paused every November 11 to salute the service and remember the sacrifice of those who have protected and defended our Nation.

Throughout our history, Americans have never faltered. Whether in epic battles, the names of which are known to many, or in little-known skirmishes, remembered only by those who fought them, men and women of our Armed Forces have pledged themselves to preserve the strength and assure the survival of our Nation. Time and again, the men and women of our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard answered each call to serve and safeguard our way of life.

Their legacy surrounds us. It is in our public meeting places, where we gather to celebrate and to speak openly and freely. It is in our churches, synagogues, and mosques, where we worship freely, as we please and in our own way. It is in our media, where reporters are free to write and broadcast the truth without fear of reprisal. And it is in our polling places, where we cast our ballots freely for those whom we choose to have govern this great land. As a Veteran, I am proud to extend the respect and gratitude of the Department of Veterans Affairs to each and every one of our Nation's Veterans.

As the Nation honors its 23 million living Veterans and acknowledges their courage and sacrifice in war and their even greater accomplishments in peace, I want to thank VA's employees for your unwavering commitment to and compassion for those Veterans. By your exemplary work at VA facilities all across the country, you fulfill President Lincoln's promise to care for those who have "borne the battle."

I am privileged to serve with all of you. Together, we are committed to making every day "Veterans Day."

Eric K. Shinseki
