Here is VA's explanation of the Tiger Team.

"The Tiger Team expedites resolution of VBA claims for veterans over age 70 and claims pending over one year.  Plans to implement the Tiger Team began in July 2001, and the team became operational in November 2001.  The Tiger Team's goal fluctuates each month, but is never less than the completion of 1,380 claims per month.  Through the end of September 2006, the Tiger Team has completed over 80,000 claims. The Tiger Team is responsible for developing needed evidence, preparing rating decisions, and processing award actions.

My feeling or opinion is Tiger Team is a good thing for most Veterans.

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.

if i fired my lawyer i think the DAV would have to pick me up again because i am a life time member i paid the 125 dollar entry fee.

i dont think they would like it though seeing me after i dropped my lawyer then went back to them but i think i will just stay with my lawyer for now

like i said when the VA was confronted with my lost records 2- 3 weeks later i mean real fast no c and P no medical questionares they revoked my tdiu very quietly and gave 100% p and t

and at that time the DAV said i may be eligible for SMC in fact the DAV officer said "in fact I know your eligible now for SMC based on the lost records.

Ill just see what happens here. One thing i liked about the DAV is that they told me i could work now and make as much as i wanted and they further told me because i am old now they (VA) really dont want to bother with me scheduling any more medical exams aat least the DAV gave me a sense of hope

the DAV told me essentially with all the lost records that were sent to the VA

I threw pie in the VA s eyes the DAV said because i was moved so fast off tdiu to 100% schedular the archives wrote a nasty letter to the VA and said these records were lost

and the fact that a cover sheet came from the archives to the VA that pretty much nailed it my 100% schedular

the DAV also told me not to worry about getting my schedular down graded the DAV SO shook his head and said to me " not going to happen." not with the lost records that were found

.

what i like about this site is every one here understands your problems and what s going on in your life and its great to be here this is a good place to come for support and research

i hope some day they may have like a had it cook out or something i could write a lot of questions

but then jim strickland helped me get a lawyer and the DAV said good bye and that was that if i remember right that was about 7 light years ago

I only have this to say about your DAV advice. I am old 67 and I have had 100% P&T rating for 18 years and I would not consider working even if I could. Any mental rating for 100% is subject to review. If your DAV SO is wrong look at what you are risking. If I understand the lost records were found.

My opinion is stick with your lawyer its in the lawyers interest to finish this out also.

Good Luck.

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.
