World News, Va Theft Of Data Included 2.5m Active Duty


Question

Why or how would the VA have the records of active duty personnel. Active Duty personnel are not VETERANS! From my almost 11 years in the Corps I do know that HQ Marine Corps holds the records for all active duty Marines and those records stay with the Corps until such time the Marine is discharged. Same for Army, Navy, and Air Force except their records are held by their respective proponent service.

After discharge from service the records/file is sent to the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis and archived.

At this time the VA has no knowledge of your file or records unless you filed a claim, requested your records from St. Louis and sent them to the VA.

So the question is "What in the hell is the VA doing with active military personnel data in the first place, and how in the hell or what policy allows them to have and keep data on active duty personnel?"

This just doesn't jive with me.

Active duty members use the MGIB and VA guarantees for home loans. Many of the 2.5 mill were reservists and national guard.

You know active duty are being treated at VA hospitals. In Tampa there is a special ward for severely wounded active duty. I see active duty coming and going at the Tampa VAMC. That kind of grabs me since I cannot go to the base five miles from my house my medical treatment. I have seen active duty getting physical therapy at the VAMC.

I have less of a problem with active duty as opposed to Tri Care Family membgers going to the VA so that they don't have to pay co pays

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
