    employment 2.jpeg

If You Live In Georgia, You Want To Read This About Ptsd!

Question

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/12/law-l...amaged-license/

Veterans groups are blasting Georgia lawmakers for passing legislation that would allow a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder to appear on driver's licenses.

Not only is this unconstitutional, it's patently prejudicial.

If they're going to do this, they need to do it for EVERYONE diagnosed with PTSD, to include police, fire, domestic and rape victims (for example).

The things our government bodies are doing to ostracize veterans is completely dumbfounding, foolish, and down right discriminatory against veterans!

That is crazy and competly violating privacy issues... Theres no point in displaying that type of informationon...Why don't they just put a tattoo his/her forehead so that they do not have to reach for their id...

History repeats it's self in many ways. A few hundred years ago, maybe society did brand or tattoo their MH citizens.

Dejavu.... As the fruit of glory for the troops starts to rot on the vine......

During the Vietnam era, they just called us "Crazy Nam Vets"... and taught our children so.

Now everything is hi-tech and digitized. As we move closer to George Orwell's insightful story "1984".

I'm waiting for the "Soylent Green " era, ...as we move into this new world order.

Yet another invasion of privacy!

During my recent search for employment, I found many of the large companies would only accept resumes which were attached to their application. No problem, except every company that did things this way, asked about military service, requesting the type & the percentage of any disability. The minute I saw the the question I knew my employment background, references, etc. wouldn't matter. There were no questions about disabilities other than those military related.

Troy,thank you for sharing this interesting information.

Its really up to you but since VA Disability is supposed to be protected unless I see a personal advantage I do not disclose it. After all the VA does not disclose it or provide forms to report it so why should we.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
