He also promised that we were gonna find the WMD's and find Osama!

Oooooops, sorry, my reply was about 9 YEARS too late..........and the WRONG President!

And, no, this is NOT a political posting, just pointing out that the President, REGARDLESS of whom he may be, is, still, ONLY the President.............REGARDLESS of his own feelings of DEITY!

But, I do hope he is correct................just as I had hoped tha.......................oh, never mind!

Speech to the DVA in Atlanta, seen on CNN and Fox.

Heard same speech and the President specifically mentioned the three new presumptives and making it easier for Vietnam Vets to obtain their compensation. This FNG as previously referred to as dumb and a lecturer on this board has credentials that I would put up against anyone on this board academic, service to country after military, or otherwise. It would seem that factual comments that support those have a dog in this fight are dampened by people who have their ratings up to 100% already. I for one had my ducks in a row with regard to VA claims and have been served well. As with another forum on the net there are those who chose to elicite agressive behaviors and comments from people who are reasonable people, but have their limits, there is a name for that type of behaviour. Support of those who are eligible for these benifits is truely appreciated. The President said what he said, true we will see. But this dumb,FNG has an acronym for those who choose to take cheap shots BM.

Keep this from getting Political. Here is a link to the DAV National Convention where the President made the speech http://dav.com/convention/2010.aspx

Please no more political talk, I've changed the topic title to something more descriptive.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
