Gulf War Re-examination Limitation

Question

:rolleyes: This may have already been commented on elsewere, but here goes. According to the Ass press, Shinski had promised to have the gulf War veterans claims re examined, however, according to a gulf war illness task force public release memo, (released March 29, 2010) this is, by the wording contained in the memo, limited to about 30,000 veterans who served only in the actual 90/91 conflict. If this is true, all gulf war veterans have again been victims of government lip service.

Asociated press. Not Ass Press.

In order to clafify this they need to break it down by periods of service. Desert Shield / Desert Storm, Iraqi Feedom, ect.

However, This is bordering on political and political posts are not allowed here under any circumstances.

If you want an answer to this question you need to start your own thread.

Chris:

Welcome to Hadit. Go to a VAMC and see a Service Officer they will help you start your claim.

Good Luck

Or you can write a letter and ask VARO and request Service Connection and start the ball rolling. You really need to ask what you want though. What are your symptoms and problems.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
