That really sucks. He was on the McCormick. It is not on BLN ships list, however, there have been a boatload of ships added including the Samuel Gompers. AD-37. It had a crew of 600 to 700.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.

Carlie I wanted to post the entire article here but didn't get permission from PostStar yet.

It does say the article can be shared but they also say it cant be printed without their permission.

This is AN OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom Murphy ( C & P Director VBA) 's Directive is here:

I will be calling Sam Hall (his vet rep) tomorrow AM to see whether he is still in appellate status and if not will the Washington County NY Veteran's Service Agency ask the VA to CUE itself immediately-

The reporter is going to call me today if he can- as I want to verify everything in this article because it is a despicable attempt on VA's part to save money with no valid or legal cause and to harm this vet and his family needlessly.

I helped a BWN in similiar situation but the destroyer this vet was on was never near the coastline and had no smaller vessels that went into tributaries of Vietnam.

I feel there are many BWN vets who were awarded for AO under the original VSM regs and the VA has no legal right to pull this crap on them.

I wont stand for it.This vet is a New Yorker and the county offices in NY are often as piss poor as the state rep offices but then again not all of them are lousy so maybe this director will get this squared away after I call him.(I dont even know if they still have the vet's POA.)

If Hall wont talk to me, as an advocate, I will call his boss-the Governor of NY.

This is the downright BS that causes many vets to even have suicidal thoughts because federal government employees at VA either cannot read or do not want to read anything that could alter this tragic situation.

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

Berta,

I only posted the headline and link due to copy-write.

Carlie passed away in November 2015 she is missed.

Yes- you did good Carlie-

I hope everyone reads the link.

Two veteran's advocates here in NY were already on this story so they might be handling it from here on in with the county rep and maybe I don't need to get involved.

I only hope this veteran makes out OK.
