Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends.

I have warned vets to stay away from the DRO process. Even after waiting for 3 years. Which is a sign in and of itself they are screwing with you right now. You wait for years for a DRO decission and many times they photo copy the previous ruling and send it out to you.

I would say you would be better off telling the VA tommrow you want to appeal to the BVA and skip the DRO hearing.

The only way the vets will stop the RO abuse is to take wway the RO acess to us.

I agree with Terry.

I have been at the VARO level for thirty years, but have hadit with them. I have had to wait a couple of years for the BVA decision anyway. Now remanded to VARO via AMC. AMC tells me the decision will not go back to the VARO and that a decision will be made at the AMC. I am in limbo. At least my Limbo is a little further along than the VARO limbo. AMC said by the middle of July they would most likely have a decision when they had already told me the middle of June.

VA interpretation of expeditious = When we get around to it. We are backlogged to about X months (X=9 through 30 months).

If you want them to move forward with your case send them a letter that all your evidence is in.

Stretch and Terry I also have the form 9 waiting to fire off as soon as I get a negative decision. I just figured I would try the DRO path for this claim. I will take the other claims along a more direct path.

You are right about one thing. The word expedite means absolutely nothing to these folks.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    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
