I used the regular IRIS site.And used my regular VARO location.

In August they said my new AO IHD claim went from my AOJ (Buffalo) to Togus Maine Nehmer people.

Two weeks later Iris told me the Buff VARO pulled my pending SMC CUE and sent that to Nehmer division in Phila VARO.

Then IRIS told me they could not locate the Aug IHD claim.

I received 3 more IRISes, they had found the original claim and it was with the CUE claim and with a rater.

I pretended I didnt get this last IRIS and sent another copy of the IHD claim and additional evidence to the VSM who had sent me this last IRIS reply.

Just in case. I was a victim of sheddergate and do not take any chances these days.

Have you received anything at all from VA yet?

The AO Nehmer claims are being handled out of the original AOJ in most cases.They are using the Training letter prepared -not by the VA- but by the lawyers who won Nehmer (NVLSP)

R'cd Nehmer letter 10-13-10, had C & P 10-25-10. Have copy of C & P & the Echo test. Wanted records from Private Hospital turned those in at VARO 11-17-10. So it's all happend fast & I know that it will be waiting time for me, but that's fine just wanted to start checking in on them next few weeks. I also sent NVLSP info & have confirmation from them. So, thank's to you I've done my homework.

Thanks again,


Don't guess you could tell me where I could find suicide USS Iredell County (LST-838) late 1969 between Vietnam & PI.

Yes, looks like another vet called me & with me it's the blind leading the blind. I've talked with our NAVY friend out on the left coast & still looking...

This site has an old email addy but might be of help:


The history of USS Iredell COunty is on the net-

I was surrised by the first info on the above sight- she was laid down by American Bridge Company in 1944. My father worked for American Bridge for 30 years.

LST 839 was named USS Iredell County in 1955.

Are you saying there was a suicide on board the USS Iredell County in 1969?

Do you know hometown and name of the sailor who died?

It could be in archived hometown news on the net.

This site might help too as to finding someone in same unit-


"I've talked with our NAVY friend out on the left coast & still looking"

Do you mean Mike Harris? I could check with him if you mean someone else- he was Riverine

Sorry was LST-839. Mike has been very helpful as usual, we seem to have reached that point where we believe that this person is not a Wall person. His death was on ship sailing between Vietnam & PI. They did report some suicides, but I don't hold out much hope that this person was reported as a suicide. This Navy vet has described this suicide to me & it is PTSD stressor for sure. Just finding the name would work, but looking at all my regular sites & ones that Mike suggested I don't seem to be much closer.I sent the vet the names on the unit from Military.com & he didn't remember anyone. I've posted to the nam lost & found site & had several replies that didn't get me anywhere. Soon or later from somewhere the answer will come.

Thanks again,

No this vet would not be on the Wall.

A name would sure help!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
