Post-Hoc And Cue I Think


in my claim for my back injury, i have tried for years to get the va to assist me in gathering my records.this makes me so mad i cant stand it,below is what i think is a cue because the board ( as stated here is board trying to argue against the courts remand) post-hoc ? they keep asking for the wrong records , i told them i never applied ptsd,and i dont need any verified stressors,i just need the to get the morning reports and lite duty records , any way does this part look right or is it just me ??


In part, the Joint Motion stated that because the Veteran had

stated that following two inservice back injuries he had been

placed on light duty for the remainder of his career during

service, the Veteran's service personnel records should have

been obtained prior to the Board's having adjudicated the

claim on the merits.

In this regard, the Board notes that following a March 2006

request, the National Personnel Record Center (NPRC) stated

that it had conducted an extensive and thorough search for

its records and was unable to locate the records requested

(i.e., the Veteran's service personnel records in conjunction

with a claim for service connection for PTSD). On the basis

of the request presented, the NPRC concluded that the records

either do not exist, the NPRC did not have them, or that

further efforts to locate them at the NPRC would be futile.

Nevertheless, the Joint Motion, which has been approved by

the Court, instructs the Board to remand the case for the

purpose of obtaining the Veteran's service personnel records.

Have you tried to obtain the needed records yourself?

Do you have copies of your SMRS and personnel records?

If VA doesnt have them, and you try NPRC yourself and they dont have them- have you applied for SSA or SSDI fairly recently- as the SSA might still have them.

I feel that vets should read their remands over VERY carefully and then try to obtain themselves what the remand is asking for.

Just Google NARA or NPRC and the site will give you directions as to ho0w to obtain these records.

Here is one Master list of US Army reports- there are other sites for each branch of service and historic archives too:


Were you represented by a lawyer at the CAVC?

If so did he or she question this Joint Motion right away?

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
