    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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

Berta since Jims name is at the bottom of the new page as the webmaster it seems hardly to be a secret lol I remember when Larry quit running my column and told me he had a new guy that was going to focus more on all veterans issues rather than the secret military programs I focused on when I wrote for Larry I think it was back in early 2006 I was focused more on the bio, chem and drug and nuclear tests that had been ongoing since WW2 and Larry wanted to broaden the field and Jim took over the "guest column" I have to be the first to admit Jim was a tremendous asset for Larry to add to the Watchdog and Jim does tell it like it is.

I think Jim will do an outstanding job for veterans and keep up the great work that Larry has been doing with that website, it has earned the respect of the VA and veterans and they verify any info before they post it and do a lot to stop the rumors and keep the info legitimate it is one of the best assets for veteran info I have ever seen it is on my daily reading list I think all veterans should go there at least once a week for info on current veteran affairs I trust it more than I do the House VA site
