Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

I got my 2005 VBM today, but I had asked for the 2006 edition. I called LexisNexis and they are sending me the 2006 and told me to keep the 2005. Just from looking at a number of topics I see how badly represented I have been by the service organizations. The VA simply ignores most of the rules in CFR 38 until someone catches them. Every one of my decisions has errors.

Hello John,

Everyone of these agencys need oversite & acountibility, including the DOD & the DVA. Does the GAO or DOJ have any weight to bare on the DVA when it comes to adherence to law?

Did you get the discs or does it come in paperback?

CBS National News did a piece on how Military is not helping returning Veterans who may have PTSD. The Commanding Officer should work for the VA with the crappy answer he gave.

Both of the men interviewed were decorated soldiers who had been busted from E-4 to privates and were about to be kicked out of the Army. Their Civilian Shrink said they had PTSD big time.

Hello John,

you said...

your post makes me really think a congressional inquiry is in order, even if it just makes them look at what there doing a little harder... maybe they will get it right!

mmmm…Looks like the VA is tryin to serve up some… today.

That will never happen, look at the 26 million vets who had information stolen on the VA computer. It's sweep under the rug.

John, how did you go about getting the book?

Your going to get allot of dieing homeless vets come winter, if something isn't done soon. These vets deserve to be treated & cared for. If the VA refuses to get on the ball & pick these vets up the DOD is tossing out, you may have a good many vets in the streets next winter.

Please don't ASSUME the Dept of Veterans Affairs or the DOD will take care of it, without Congressional & US Court persuasion.

I got the paperback VBM. I went to the LexisNexis bookstore. I got the 800 number and called them to ask for the 2006. I wanted to read about CUE but all these other subjects jumped out at me. I read how the VA cannot change a diagnosis without a explanation. They changed my diagnosis based strictly on what a guy at a C&P exam said with no explanation. I read about inferred claims. At no time has the VA in my region every done anything on an inferred claim unless the veterans files a formal or informal claim himself. They don't abide by the bilateral factor rule. What really gets me is that the DAV lets this sloppy work go by and could care less. I had an inferred claim for TDIU in 1973 and the VA just ignored it. I had inferred claims for DMII and PN and the VA ignored it until I filed a claim.

I read about the soldiers who are being mistreated for having PTSD. I talked to my psychologist yesterday. He works with the spill over from MacDill AFB. He believes the AF at least is hiding the number of PTSD cases by sending these guys back to duty and keeping them in the service. Officially, the military is saying everyone with PTSD or mental problems should seek help, but in reality, when they do seek help their careers are over and they become shitbirds. The soldiers start to have symptoms and they end up at the wrong end of a court martial for drug abuse etc.

Is it just me or does it seem that the VA really gets a big chuckle when a desperate Veteran requests a Congressional investigation?

Of all the remedies I have seen work perhaps the best would be the Law Suit that requires them to do their job and second to that would be Presidential Inquiry when Bill Clinton was President.

Don't get me wrong I think for most part the Courts and the Democrats and Republicans have all failed Veterans and you can toss into the heap the self serving Service Organizations. The whole system needs a big overhaul.

I wonder if the American people know or care that the people who serve to protect them are cheated and mistreated by the military and the VA when they become disabled? That is my reason for supporting a draft so that everyone would be subject to this system and not just a few unlucky souls. If every mother's son and daughter had to serve I think there would be pressure to change the VA. If the children of senators, presidents and congressmen had to carry a rifle the VA really would have the best care in the world.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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
