  • 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

Last night I visited Kurt Priessman's web site and found this BVA decision frrom Sept of this year, see link below. It's interesting reaading. It granting service connection to a Thailand veteran for diabetes and a few other things secondary to his diabetes. What's interesting is that the service connection was granted both on having stopped in Vietnam on his way to and from Thailand and on the fact that he worked on the perimeter of Udorn. The decision cited the CHECO report, the ROE and the May 2010 C&P bulletin on the handling of claims by Thailand veterans.

Would that decision help my recently denied claimed herbicide exposure while working on the perimeter of Korat/Campfriendship?

The best evidence you can get is proof positive that your MOS put you on or near within feet of the perimeter where they did the actual spraying.

The BVA case you mentioned was a no brainer for VA because the vet did have boots on ground Vietnam.

I did submit evidence in the way of pictures and a buddy statement that I worked near the perimeter which they ignored. But I did find it interesting that they did mention that the veteran did work on the perimeter of Udorn. What I got out of it was that he had presented a strong enough case on both counts that he would have been granted service connection in either case.

Thanks for responding and I hope that you and yours have an enjoyable Thanksgiving.

    • 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.
