You might have link to this Fantasticbooks- but I coudn't find it-

The Bulletin ,on page three, mentions how Thailand AO claims are to be handled.

Our member Kurt Priessman was directly responible for this directive and has helped many Thailand vets succeed in their claims already for AO presumptive.

I dont think there is any formal training letter on this but the BVA,in 2 recent decisions as referred directly to Kurt as K.P. in one, and then by his full name in another decision using the substance of this bulletin.

I didnt see that at VBN either so will contact them too.

Being involved with the AO issue since 1991, I wanted to do cartwheels when I read this bulletin. It all arose from the rlentless efforts of Kurt Priessman-advocate extraordinaire!

But it has gotten lost in the shuffle I think and I wonder if all vet orgs have paid careful attention to it.

If you do have it listed Never Mind!

And Congrats on your promotion to Elder here!!!!

You sure work hard!

Thanks, Berta for the C&P Bulletin.

I did not have FL 10-12 or 10-16. I have taken the excerpts from that Bulletin. Will try to find actual letters but if not will post these.

I have a Fast letter 09-20 which discusses Thailand, but since it is 2009, I will be putting the 2010 Bulletin up also.

Being an Elder is quite a jump for me. That still doesn't mean I know any computerese. lol

Will muddle along with helping where I can.

Thanks again for the new STUFF. Let me know of any others! Please!

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
