  • 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

Other Military Human Experimentation Projects


Since we are discussing "HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION". I am searching for information regarding any Army URI ( upper respiratory infection ) experiments at Ft. Dix NJ, during the winter and spring of 1967? A group of us were sent to a clinic every morning and given fluid to gargle with every day. I got so sick with URI, that I was taken out of the program, or the experiment was over. I can't remember for sure. Any info about this incident will be helpful.

My VAMC has "research center" posted under the name of the building. Not necessarily related to what you guys went through, but it does make me wonder...

You remember the file "Jacob's Ladder"? That was based on facts from the Vietnam war where our fearless leaders wanted to use chemicals to produce super warriors. I understand it was a disaster. Of course, they did give LSD to soldiers without their knowledge. Back in 1971 an Army dentist tried to transplant one of my wisdom teeth into the place where he had extracted a back molar. It was a mess and bled for about a week. My face swoll up like a baseball. Since that time I know of no regular dentist that do tooth transplants on a regular basis. This was forty years ago.

    • 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...
