Question

Guest frank

dear veterans, i was on a veterans web page ,someone stated,on your dd-214 the goverment has a code on your discharge, this code states [from web page] if you are a bed wetter,drunk ect. so somewhere on your discharge,is a code, i looked on mine,i was asked to reinlist,so i guess mine is ok. maybe this is why we can;t get our the claim we ask for or why it is so hard for us,if this code is true,that means we don,t stand a chance,and spend years trying to win something we CAN,T win from day one. frank

dear terry .you might be right,as these are on only dd-214, as these are older discharges,i don.t know what a new discharge would look like,if there was a changemade,how would a older veteran know this,they would file a claim, get denied,file to bva and still be turned down . i was givem 100% 4e from air force,52-56 in navy rated 100% ptsd for 4-11=52, in 1978 i open claim for medical records va stated no records found,hoe do you appeal,a statment like that? in 2003 i do get everything i have stated va had proof all these years my point is hoe would you know? thank you frank

dear don thank you for your reply,i know you are right on what you state,however we all know how va bva . and court of appeals , has lied to veterans from what i read on the other web page,older veterans are turned because of codes. do you think the goverment would check in va to see if they are doing right by veterans?i came out of the shoping center a few days ago there was a veteran in a wheel chair asking for money,this poor man had lost2 legs i arm,his legs were made so cheap ,thet could not support him. i asked sir, are you getting compensation for this? he said yes, i asked how much, he had spent 5 years in the hospital , only getting 1500. per month i said that is not right, you should be getting about 3500 per month i asked why don.t you appeal? his answer was i joined the service at age 16, i forged my mothers name,va stated if he ever tried to appeal va would file a forgey charge on him, there was no way i could get him to see va could do no such thing. this is my point,how would we know. and i do mean the older veterans you new veterans, are sharp you know how to apply the law,you have computers fax ect,everything at your finger tips,but older veterans have no knowledge of up to date laws. their fear of va is so strong, no one can break it, an again how would they know? frank

I got the spin numbers on my DD214. They labeled me a personality disorder and that was why I was discharged. I was a bad boy so they waited almost three years to discover I was a personality disorder. Maybe that was why I did not get a job as a VA benefits couselor back in the 70's. I took a standardised test for all potential federal employees and got a pretty good score. The only offers I ever got were from the VA and the ATF. I was a disabled vet with a college education and a high score and I could not get a job at the VA. Probably some guys girlfried or cousin got the job.

The only way VA could deny him over this is if his enlistment was adjudicated fraudulent by the service department and he was put out with a dishonorable discahrge. VA is not going to file charges on him.

dear john, this is my point,there is no doubt that code did keep you from that va job. as terry and don stated they can,t use these codes,anymore and they are right. however you can,t trust va or bva,so a older veteran would not know this. i was on base last week,started to talk to a older veteran, he is only getting 20% i asked if he has put in fo a highter rateing he said no they might take away what i have, i do fell va is useing these codes whenver they the veteran lets a ro or go alone,they will use the code,on this web page it stated that fact,codes were used,and older veterans would not know about it. john did you know that code was on your discharge frank

Im sure they probably did use the codes on the old DD214's the newer ones they put it right at the bottom as to the reason the person got out. They also put a code called an RE-CODE which is a reinlistment code that they do use for reinlistment purposes. I guess if you had a lower code on that chart than they would definitely look at it at the VARO since it had to do with your in service records. Im sure they use these codes just like they use your age to tell you if you can get a job with different federal organizations. Did you know that if your over the age of 37 you can not get a job for law enforcement in most of their positions? No wonder so many people are getting out of the service early because they wouldnt be able to get a key job for the government by the time they retired from the military. Some do have a few rules that allow you to add the total number of years in service to your age as an offset but, many people dont decide what they want to do until later in life anyway so its a real shame that they do it this way.

I have a friend who was over weight and got kicked out early and he is having his changed or upgraded to honorable. I think its a good thing that they do this for veterans.

I looked up my spin number and it's "early release to attend school" so the numbers aren't all negative. I did get out 60 days early to make the fall '71 class at George Mason University. Back then it was George Mason College of the University of Virginia.

dear john, this is my point,there is no doubt that code did keep you from that va job. as terry and don stated they can,t use these codes,anymore and they are right. however you can,t trust va or bva,so a older veteran would not know this. i was on base last week,started to talk to a older veteran, he is only getting 20% i asked if he has put in fo a highter rateing he said no they might take away what i have, i do fell va is useing these codes whenver they the veteran lets a ro or go alone,they will use the code,on this web page it stated that fact,codes were used,and older veterans would not know about it. john did you know that code was on your discharge frank

(I edited this post for frank so it would be a bit easier to read - Tbird)

Dear veterans,

You have all made good points, there is no question, in doubt, of what you state, but you still did not answer my question how would a veteran know?

We reply to each other by our computers, but older veterans, do not know how to use a computer or cannot afford, nor understand, what you write.

I am 100% US AF e4, granted to me under section 38, chapter 5 part 111 m21-1, V. A. held this information back from me all these years V. A. claimed no records found, if not with the help of a lady that worked for V. A. she made copies of everything right now I have 100% 3 times, how would I know, what section 38 meant?

It was with you help, what you know I don’t, that is why I am grateful, for all your help, I served in a time 46-49 air force, navy 52-56, both of my discharges are ok, I even have a letter from navy, of recognition for my service on the USS Wasp, they recommended me to enlist, this states a copy of this letter will be put in your files,

I also have. certificate of recognition from Donald Rumsfield, this states IN RECOGNITION OF YOUR SERVICE DURING THE PERIOD OF THE COLD WAR[sEPT.2.1945-26 OF DECEMBER 1991]IN PROMOTING,PEACE AND STABILITY FOR THIS NATION THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL.SIGNED BY DONALD RUSMFIELD,SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.

I open my first claim in 1978, V. A. states no records found. so when you write what is law ,I know you are all right,

I do not question what you state, but put yourself in a older veterans shoes, and try to picture yourself in our shoes how would I know about these codes?

V. A. is using these codes on older veterans how would they know?

I might add V. A. has me rated 0 navy 0, I really hope I can get them into LEVENSWORTH. for what they did to veterans of my time who died waiting for a reply from V. A., the government can not undue, what has happened to me.

I have no respect for the US government, Nixon, called veterans dumb, stupid people, and he made it to the white house.

Long ago our country was declared WE ARE AT WAR,I WAS ONLY 17, my mother had to sign for me, when war was declared I stepped forward signed up, stepped up took the oath, stated I’LL GO SIR WE WERE AT WAR, sorry this is so long by I want you all to understand what older veterans fact , again my question, how would they know

thank you frank

You are in the right place. Don't get obsessed because you have your 100% and you have the rest of your life to work on your other VA things. I feel very pissed off about what the military and VA did to me 35 years ago, but I am not going to let it get me unhappy in the present. You don't get justice from the VA or military. All you get is money. I would just relax and keep plugging away at your claims. Nothing makes the VA work faster or better. Just keep trying to get your medical records and evidence for an earlier claim. Thousands of WWII vets and Korean and Vietnam era vets got screwed and have nothing.

You know my job as a postal worker damaged me more than my military service. That really makes me mad since I am quit crippled up and can't do many of the things I would like to do. Just based on the post office injuries I am unemployable and I get a tiny disability pension for that.

(I edited this post for frank so it would be a bit easier to read - Tbird)

Dear veterans,

You have all made good points, there is no question, in doubt, of what you state, but you still did not answer my question how would a veteran know?

We reply to each other by our computers, but older veterans, do not know how to use a computer or cannot afford, nor understand, what you write.

I am 100% US AF e4, granted to me under section 38, chapter 5 part 111 m21-1, V. A. held this information back from me all these years V. A. claimed no records found, if not with the help of a lady that worked for V. A. she made copies of everything right now I have 100% 3 times, how would I know, what section 38 meant?

It was with you help, what you know I don’t, that is why I am grateful, for all your help, I served in a time 46-49 air force, navy 52-56, both of my discharges are ok, I even have a letter from navy, of recognition for my service on the USS Wasp, they recommended me to enlist, this states a copy of this letter will be put in your files,

I also have. certificate of recognition from Donald Rumsfield, this states IN RECOGNITION OF YOUR SERVICE DURING THE PERIOD OF THE COLD WAR[sEPT.2.1945-26 OF DECEMBER 1991]IN PROMOTING,PEACE AND STABILITY FOR THIS NATION THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL.SIGNED BY DONALD RUSMFIELD,SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.

I open my first claim in 1978, V. A. states no records found. so when you write what is law ,I know you are all right,

I do not question what you state, but put yourself in a older veterans shoes, and try to picture yourself in our shoes how would I know about these codes?

V. A. is using these codes on older veterans how would they know?

I might add V. A. has me rated 0 navy 0, I really hope I can get them into LEVENSWORTH. for what they did to veterans of my time who died waiting for a reply from V. A., the government can not undue, what has happened to me.

I have no respect for the US government, Nixon, called veterans dumb, stupid people, and he made it to the white house.

Long ago our country was declared WE ARE AT WAR,I WAS ONLY 17, my mother had to sign for me, when war was declared I stepped forward signed up, stepped up took the oath, stated I’LL GO SIR WE WERE AT WAR, sorry this is so long by I want you all to understand what older veterans fact , again my question, how would they know

thank you frank

thank you t-bird frank

I am not sure how old you are ,but for us old timers ,I think it is best to put the most effort into the claim or appeal that is going to get us the biggest bang and is the strongest. The VA, as you know , can string out a claim for years. You want to be around to collect on the retro, so focus on the claim you have the best chance of winning.

  • question-001.jpeg

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
