mobie16r,

Many times one wonders about what stressors our fellow military members endured. Here at hadit we are afforded the opportunity/platform to share that if one does so chose or just maybe let out bits and pieces, or not at all.

The openness inables the realism of what one can tolerate, what one can endure, the stregnths and weaknesses one possesses,the outcomes of the major stressors,the fights to acquire or to continue with their attempts to acquire justice for their scd, and their life.

Unless someone experiences the exact same occurance,(not possible) they cannot truly put themself in that persons shoes. Similiar events occur, closely related, but the personalization of what changes happen to that individual who suffers from the horendous situation can never be challenged. This does not happen here, nor does one evidence members trying to "one up on another" regarding their sc life terrorization.

Reading members post of their most intimate life shattering experiences brings forth the banding of brothers/sisters. No where else can you find the true meaning of friendship.

I applaude you for your service, help here on hadit, the stregnth and ability to raise a family and your grandchildren, and the courage to strive and survive through it all. You survived your challenge put forth to you, I hope you find peace and realize you were chosen for life.

My cousin died in the tet in feb 68, and a day does not pass by me where I don't think "WHAT IF?"

May you enjoy your Christmas holiday time with your family and may you know the lord watches over all people if you let him in.(or whatever higher power you do believe in or find solace with) :) halos2

    • 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...
