  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Fast Letter 09-50

SUBJ: Procedures for handling disability claims based on herbicide exposure for hairy cell and other B-cell leukemias, Parkinson's disease, and ischemic heart disease.

Purpose

On October 13, 2009, Secretary Shinseki announced that hairy cell and other B-cell leukemias, Parkinson's disease, and ischemic heart disease will be added to the list of diseases presumptively associated with exposure to certain herbicide agents. Although the public announcement has been made, the amendment to 38 CFR 3.309(e) will not become effective for several months. In the meantime, it is likely that regional offices will begin receiving herbicide exposure related claims from veterans diagnosed with these diseases. This letter provides interim procedures for controlling such claims.
