Question

Good Evening Brothers and Sisters, Once again I am in a perplexed situation on what to do? I filed a claim for PTSD prior to 2007 and after the NOD'S and my Appeals I'm at the stage that presents myself with four options for a hearing to decide on my Appeal, Option 1) For me to wait to appear at an in person hearing before the Board of Veterans Appeals, what they called a "Travel Board" hearing. 2) Request a live video conference hearing before the Board of Veterans Appeal. 3) Request a hearing before the Board of Veterans in Washington, D.C. 4) Withdraw my hearing request. All four option's are very unfamiliar to me and I'm not sure what would be the best course of action to take? Option #3 is definitely out, for I only look independently wealthy and they stated that the Veterans Administration cannot pay any expenses that myself, my Rep. and/or any witnesses incur in connection with attending a Board of Veterans hearing. In their closing statement they presented myself with another option, one in which I may request a local hearing before regional office decision-makers, they stated they could hold this hearing instead of a Travel Board hearing or they could hold it in addition to a Board of Veterans Appeals hearing. One of the many pieces of advice that I'm grateful for by reading your website is the importance of reviewing my C&P file well in advance to attending the hearing, I'm going to apply your wisdom after my next appt.. and then go to the Regional Office and start the ball rolling. Many thanks to all my Brother and Sister Veterans for allowing me to pick your brains, for after all these years they make me feel like they want me to throw the towel in and give up. It's been so long fighting them that I need to get gung-ho again and refresh my memory and get my records in order and in conjunction with what's in and replace what's missing within my C&P file. GOD bless each and every one of you and thanks for your time and attention to this pertinent matter I currently have at hand. rwskitch
