Yes, on page 112 of the Nehmer training guide I found the numbers for the locations. Yours appears to be 310 Philadelphia. I looked at the Training guide for June of 2010. There is also a guide for September of 2010. Someone else can help with the other letters and code. I used this with my claim and it figured out to be correct.

Right- the three digits refers to the VARO.

The initials refer to the person who made the decision regarding the initials in the re: .

I direct all of my stuff Attention to: and then the initials and put this on the envelopes as well as letters to them before I type Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Office.

The initials could be coded backwards for the employee-that would not surprise me as the days when someone from VA would actually sign their name are over.

Still coded or not VARO knows who this person is.

I suggest too if anyone formally gripes in writing to VA about an erroneous decision make sure you use those initials too r better yet send them copy of the whole decision.

I mean those of us who gripe to VA entities higher than the VARO and BVA or COngress etc.

The first number is that particular VARO number. The second number is the department number. I believe 21 is the number for the Veterans Service Center. The set of initials is the person that is assigned to work on that claim.

They reply to is actually used for STAR review. That way they know who did the work on that particular claim and who to access the mistake to. It is usually the Veteran Service Representative that worked on the claim. It will indicate pre or post determination. The person who made the decision is kept secret. They will black it out when you ask for a copy of the claim folder. They are GODS and don't you forget it.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
