I'm new to this forum as a contributer. I have been watching it close since I discovered that VA was adding three New Presumptives. I had a heart attack back in March of 2005. I was granted total SS Disability for Ischemic Heart disease to that date. I sent in a claim for IHD and was denied in a letter dated November 8, 2005. Last week August 20, 2010 VA contacted me and told me that my record was with the Nehmer group at the VA in Muskogee OK. I asked would nehmer be applied to the "New Presumptives" and was told point blank that it would. I have been checking the OMB daily and discovered today that the Review was completed on Aug 25, 2010. I have been told that those who qualify may start recieving checks by the end of October since the Final Rules were completed in October. The following information is a copy and paste from the OMB's review:

Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA)

Executive Order Submissions with Review Completed in Last 30 Days

August 28, 2010

Department of Veterans Affairs

AGENCY: VA RIN: 2900-AN54 TITLE: Diseases Associated With Exposure to Certain Herbicide Agents (Hairy Cell Leukemia and Other Chronic B Cell Leukemias, Parkinson’s Disease, and Ischemic Heart Disease) STAGE: Final Rule ECONOMICALLY SIGNIFICANT: Yes RECEIVED DATE: 07/08/2010 LEGAL DEADLINE: Statutory COMPLETED: 08/25/2010 COMPLETED ACTION: Consistent with Change

Blue water navy....it won't be presumptive for AO via Vietnam/Blue water. He will have to show he set foot on Vietnam soil.

john999 is correct. A crew member aboard a Vietnam era Blue water vessel must show their ship either docked at a VN port or traveled the brown waters of Vietnam during that era. There is a bill in congress to bring Blue Water Navy under the AO presumptive but no one knows at this time how it will fare.  Track    H.R. 2254:    Agent Orange Equity Act of 2009

    • 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...
