    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Question

When they send me the appointment paper's,VES gave me more paper's to fill out .Two weeks ago I went to a outside VES for blood test, xray and upper GI to check the status of my AO status with the PC, DMII, PN and IHD. I'm thinging that they would bring this up today when I saw the doctor at the Evaluation. When I got there, they made fill out a large amount of paper work . Which was the same ____ that I filled out before, and before, ETC , but more junk!! They did not even look at the paper work I fill out for the appointment.:angry: . Ok, thats ok? I remember ARMY! I guess we don't have carbon paper anymore, so this is there way to making copies :wacko: . Ok,, back to the subject. This test was joke, and a waste of good american money. Do they think American Veteran's are trying to waste tax payer money to play these game's. There I go again. Back to the story. They were very nice and treated me with honor, But such a waste!! The doctor found the same thing my private Doctor's found. I guess VA can delay my other disability for a time. Maybe it is faster, They say it increase the time by two months! In real time thats a year? :sad: Time is not on everybodies side! I love this country

Sorry for the extra paperwork but I wanted to make the statement that I have nothing but good things to say about VES. It is my personal opinion that the only reason my claims were adjudicated fairly were because they were VES contract physicians. VES has always done right by me and I would say to anyone who has a C & P scheduled with them to just relax. If you truly have a medical disability, VES will treat you right.

Well your proably right, and of course you are right. I'm a little mad at the whole system and how they hide this and all these problem's. They knew 20, 30 years ago and did they try to help. I don't trust them and never more!

I said that these doctor's were great, but redunant. I don't have time to play the Vietnam Game any more and they were hoping we would be dead by now!!!!! Thank you

The VA is made up of teaching hospitals that do research and of course they know a lot of things just due to the numbers that they do not inform Veterans about. They knew about diabetes and Agent Orange but made a lot of Veterans still prove a link. Sometimes I hate the bastards and their tactics to limit government exposure to legitimate claims from Veterans.

How many times were we told when we served that if anything happened Uncle Sam would take care of us. That was to make up for the poor pay, loss of our freedom and the crap duty assignments.

I am pretty sure that there are other reasons that Veterans have diabetes and I bet that the VA knows it for sure and yet we hear nothing.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
