Stars And Stripes During Nam



Years ago I wrote some VA disability articles for Stars and Stripes digital-then the DOD bought them out and they went off line- they still have their Overseas version.

Then I got email some time ago from a vet who said the article that supported his stressor was in an old Stars and Stripes newspaper-I search for days and could not find any good way to access these old S&S s.

However I just realised today that the 25th Aviation Battalion has an archive of them on line at


This also is a good site for a take on the new US Circuit court decision but they haven't posted anything yet-

and any vet in aviation with hearing loss- another good reason to see what they have there-

Not only can a Stars and Stripes article possibly support a stressor but Vietnam Magazine, on line could too-

I had a Tet at Hue vet , he didnt really need more than he had to support his stressors- Marine at Hue- PH-1968-but I found photos in an old Vietnam Mag of Marines at Hue during TET and sent them to him and here he seemed to think he was definitely in one of the pictures.

There are numerous ways to find info to support inservice events.

Then again I have spent hour after hour for vets -just getting no where- yet it can be well worth the time.

It is better for the vet themselves to do the searching though- because something somewhere on line could ring a bell for them better than someone just helping them search -would not see.

    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?”
