  • 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

Three questions:

1. Is this the most up-to date list? (assuming all usage has been declassified)

2. This list does not indicate usage in Europe. Does anyone have a list of it's usage there?

3. If AO is used in an area, is that area always contaminated? (i.e. until a cleanup is performed)

I think that some was used in the Fulda (sp) Gap, in Germany, but I'm not sure!

This list has been out since 2003. We had an SVR show on this last year. James Cripps comes to mind as he was the service connected for AO exposure items like Chloracne based on his service at Fort Gordon Ga.

I am a little concerned about Fort Knox as a lot of soldiers trained in the fields that were defoliated by AO and they are unsure of what was used as it says Various. It also concerns me that Growing Up We had a farm 2 miles from fort Knox.

Things have changed with this list as well-

I need to compare it to the list from NVLSP (hopefully their new VBM is being sent out soon-maybe more has been added) and also I need to check out the Alvin Young papers:

Yep James Cripes was exposed In Fort Gordon, many Thailand vets have succeeded in AO claims, and one who served in Alaska (The US Army Corps of Engineers sprayed part of the Alaskan pipeline with AO) was awarded for AO by the AMC.

(I am still baffled by that decision though. The AMC awarded an outside of Nam AO claim? Sounds like an oxymoron to even say AMC awarded anything.

Also A Fort Detrick vet was awarded 2 years ago and recently this claim was mentioned by Colonel Dan- I assumed someone already posted that info here.

If not I will post his email.

"If AO is used in an area, is that area always contaminated? (i.e. until a cleanup is performed)

The level of dioxin at Danang per the Hatfield Study 2-3 years ago- is 300 times HIGHER than it was during the war.

    • 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...
