  • 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

I believe it's "Desert Shield/Desert Storm" and if you weren't there than don't make stupid remarks.

Not sure what dwragon means by Desert CALM Desert Storm but lets hear him out he is new.

Keep in mind that Hadit does not allow derogatory comments about any Veterans Service.

I think he means that the 're-review' is limited to only the 30,000 or so Veterans who served in theater and filed GWS claims, instead of all Gulf War Era Veterans.

getting back to this, email never showed it was answered.

Desert Sheild= troop buildup,

Desert Storm Desert Storm= actual 100 hour conflict, also known as Desert Sword/Desert Sabre

Desert Farewell=Liberation of Kuwait, troop drawdown, also known as Desert Calm

My orders say Operation Desert Calm in support of Operation Desert Storm (I still have them.)

Based upon the wording of the statement, it only applies to the 1oo hours.

This all started by a reporter misquoting what was said. The VA by law can not just reopen claim. The veteran will need to do it. As per the law and the CFR for gulf war veteran, this will apply to all veterans that was in the gulf from 1990 to today.

The VA chief of staff will be addressing this at the National Gulf War Resource Center heal and educational fair in Dallas TX. this Aug.

You can find our agenda on our website.

    • 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...
