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...

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
