Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends

got a letter from the American Legioin today saying they did not represent me because my recent CUE claim was decided at the RO level.

I got the AL washington DC letter when the BVA ruled atainst me. I have the BVA ruling right in fromt of me as I write this. On the face of the BVA ruling is. "REPRESENTAON, Moving party represented by: The American legion"

The American Legoni has been doing illegal claims representaton of vets claims for decades. Now they are trying to cover it up.

Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends.

I was re reading the Al letter on my CUE case before the BVA. Now I have already appealed to the court and my appeal is registered in the court. Now I read in this AL letter.

"A motion for reconsideraton based on Clear and Unmistakable evidence CUE was filed on your behalf at the regional level. For more details on that motion please contact your service officer at your regional office?

If Im reading this right. The AL now not only denys interlopiing on my BVA appeeal. It looks like the AL sent my case to the RO level by writting a brief to the St Pete RO trying to take away my right to appeal to the court.

Im not going to let the RO rule on my case. I am already up at the court level now. Have any of you had experences like this?

Terry, It is time to speak to an attorney who has legal experience in jurisdiction for representatives and false representation. It may to your benefit.

I had a similar problem with the AL they insulted me at an interview with my wife as witness.. I asked what the SPN code on my discharge meant and he responded "it means they dont want you anymore" Its RE 12 WHICH AFTER YEARS OF SEARCHING FOR A LIST OF DEFINITIONS MEANS RECCOMENDED FOR REENLISTMENT BY A GENERAL OFFICER!!!

It took 3 years of certified mail to get them off as my POA, they stink like a rotten fish

here In Washington State. I refer to them as "The American Lesion" B)

Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends.

Last week by letter the American Legioin stated it had not represented me at the BVA. However I had on my BVA denial the the AL was the moving party on my BVA appeal.

Today the Al represnitive admited they did file a brief on my behalf at the BVA. He is going to send me a copy of it.

I will continue to pursue the issue of representaton wiithout notificaton or consulting with the veteran befpre the court..

    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?”
