    employment 2.jpeg

Yulookin-the White House as a new criteria regarding petitions filed with the Fed Gov.

If 5,000 signatures appear on the petition, then someone at the White House will review it.

https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/create

I don't know how long my claim was at the AMC. They then sent it to Seattle RO and then back to Buffalo RO.

NONE of those entitys could read.

AMC is a stall tactic. AMC decisions are not published like BVA decisions are. I have read 2 AMC award letters and cannot figure out why they awarded the veterans involved and I feel these decisions will haunt the veteran in the future because they are wrong.

I feel you should contact the H VAC Sub Committee -Disability and Memorials -in writing.

http://veterans.house.gov/

Are you in Congresswoman's Buerke's district'- she would be a good start for contact as she is on this committee.

You can even submit testimony to this committee.

I didn't have time to prepare testimony the way I wanted to when the Sub Committee called me years ago-they used my letter to Sec Shinseki as testimony with my permission -but I suggest taking the time to properly prepare any testimony you want to submit for a future hearing on the claims process in the format at the H VAC site.

This is the first petition that has been filed recently under the new “5,000” signature criteria:

If Congress is actually serious about cutting government waste of funding, the AMC is the first place I would cut. Its a complete waste of money and does nothing to reduce the backlog of veterans claims. If anything, its a major cause of backlog.

About the only thing I found I could do to get my claim out of this dead zone, was keep sending in the evidence waivers to have the claim decided by the BVA and not the regional office level, (AMC).

It doesn't matter that you can't call the AMC. If you could, you can't believe a word they tell you.

There is ONE thing that is consistent about the AMC....It is never a good thing to have your claim there. I think it is a "holding tank" for claims to go while they await the Veteran to die, used primarily by management so they have an excuse when a senator calls and asks why this Veteran claim has gone on for x years without an answer. The managers response: "Its at the AMC". This excuse is used because most people, including senators, dont know the AMC is just a department of the RO. You see, this gives the RO manager an "out", when he explains...gee there is nothing I can do about your Vets claim, its at the Appeals Management Center. People "buy" that bull, so the VA keeps doing it. I agree with Yulooking in that the AMC is not needed. The claim is either in appeals, or at the RO, and the AMC does not need to have their "delay paws" on my claim. There are already enough "glitches" to last a lifetime, so we dont need any more with the AMC.

placing a bag full of crap on their doorstep and lighting on fire and ringing the doorbell would probably get their attention faster than a petition..

seriously... I think that the bastages only understand cash bribes,, errr..I mean donations..

update: sorry, out of frustration, I didn't have any useful answer... I just feel that unless a petition is done really good, it probably won't do much... but it maybe better than nothing...

wish I could do it right.. I would hate to ruin a good chance at it..

    • 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.
