Been a long time but if I remember correctly the Video is usually faster than traveling board.

This needs to be verified.

Not true. If that was the case, why would they need a traveling board.

Pete is correct. What I understand is, by the time the traveling board reaches your area after spending time at the other areas, it could be a while. Unless of course, its scheduled to be in your area fairly soon.

As far as the difference between the two, I can only say that a lot of vets would prefer face to face and look at them straight in the eye's when they present their case verses video. Others here who's had experience with this might chime in with their opinions as well.

those people who never had a dro hearing would not have any transcripts or tape, so you would have to go to a bva hearing or tape one..... regardless, that is the answer my American Legion VSO gave me.. I pressed her on her answer and she re-stated it as fact that they would use the tape that was recorded and transcripts from my dro hearing. So, if you just go from NOD-to-form 9-to-BVA.... (no dro hearing, there would be no tape (audio, vidual, transcripts). So apparently, when my time for the BVA comes around, they already have my transcipts and audio tape.

MY form 9 requested a video hearing, but that request was made before I had my dro hearing...(but asked for the dro hearing a few months after my form 9 request was sent to the BVA, as the dro hearing was an after thought, I only learning about it after and decided not to miss the chance to pass up that opportunity) again, The BVA will use my audio tapes, transcripts, when they get to me...

when I asked her I could not have been more clear, and more demanding of clarification...

So, it appear They will not have a video of me, only audio...

If I ever find out differently, I will post any new info... whenever that day comes...

(DRO hearing was Dec 8, 2010). Only got an soc for 3 out of 6 issues,, the major issues are the ones that never got a decision... (waiting.. for dro hearing decsion on those 3 issues).

originally My first form 9 (for bva hearing request) was sent in I think around June 2010. Maybe before that, hard to remember,, my brain is fried...

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
