Va Training & Fast Letters--Do You Have Hard Copies?

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.

I just went through my hubby's medical records and found some letters I had printed when working his claim. They cover diabetes, cardiovascular and C&P stuff.

It will take awhile to post them since I will have to type them into the computer. Some of them are already posted but others not. Will have to check.

I started thinking about all of the veterans in here and how a lot of research had to be done, especially the ones over many years....

Do you have copies of any of the Training or Fast Letters or Directives hidden away in your documents?

I would love to get my mitts on these. I am willing to take scanned attachments in an email. I have NO objection to having to type them back into the computer to get them online.

If any who feel like it could go through their files and send me these, I would let you know my email or maybe it could be attached in here? I notice there is an "Attach This FIle" button. Just any that are NOT POSTED in the Training & Fast Letter Forum on Hadit.

I think it could be of help to other veterans.

thanks for checking.

The Nehmer Training Guide you have link to includes the Cardiovascular ratings they will use for the new IHD claims as well as any other cardio related claims.

I need to try to find my 3 1/2 for the 1997 Diabetes Training letter and will attach it for you if I find it.It is 17 pages long and I helped a local vet succeed after 12 years by going over his SMRs and this 1997 training letter very carefully.

The ADA diabetes criteria changed in 1997 so I used this training letter to support my DMII posthumous claim for my husband.It has a wealth of info the newer Diabetes Training letter doesnt have.

I had to prove he had DMII under the old criteria as well as the new.

It wouldn't come up often that a DMII vet would need this older letter but if I find it I will post it.

I am sure I posted it on the older hadit board.

Thank You Berta.

It is the older versions I would like to find. I agree they might have additional information that can enhance a claim. Also there are older claims out there still being worked. Would like to provide info that maybe will help those claims.

If you can get it to me, I will get it posted.

  • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
