Ok so here it is. I am an Army Brat; daughter to a WO-4; MP myself; and wife to the most amazing man ever (sorry to all the men out there but it is what it is :rolleyes: ) an Infantry Sniper. I know the military from almost every side. My blood runs true (I would say blue but I am female). I love the military and all those that are in it. I like to say that the military is like an abusive relationship, they beat you up, treat you like crap and you still come back for more. :D

The reason why I am here is for answers like so many others but also the kind of comradery that only comes from those who have served.

My mission for the people on this site is to help keep my family together. I need those who can support and help me be that women who will stand by her man as we find our way through the front lines of being a combat veteran away from war, no matter how dangerous it may become. If you so choose to accept, my eternal gratitude will be your reward. I know it isn't much but hey we are military we are used to giving up everything for bread crumbs right?!?! :D I shall see you in the trenches... oh, I mean posts!

Welcome to HADIT. A great place to get the information and advice to help you and yours through the non-adversarial VA claim process. Your story is a little like my daughters. She is married to an active duty First Sergeant and is a service connected Veteran (50%).

If you do not find the information you need in any of the previous post, please post your questions as there is usually someone here that has been there and done that. Once again, welcome aboard. Terry

Welcome to Hadit.

I think you will also find some female veterans and VA female claimants here

that will also be willing to provide help and support.

Welcome Cherry. Every day is a new day. I take one day at a time and try to smell the roses and appreciate the small things. We have so much to be thankful for so i try to keep it in perspective.

    • 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.
