Question

As some of you know I contacted the ACLU recently and provided them with numourous documents about VA fraud and their treatment of vets. As some of you guessed they have refused to help. Am I like the last person on earth to know about what's going on and no-one cares or what??

The ACLU likes to take on Constitutional issues they think they can win and that will set precedent. Most of the organizations you think would be there to help citizens are just fronts. Consider that the laws are written by and for very special interest groups with deep pockets. Most of us don't fall into that category.

Selective, appearantly so do the TV stations, the newspapers and everyone else I have tried to contact about this. Is violence the only thing that's going to get peopes attention?

It won't help your cause but patience will. Hang in there it will eventually work out.

Hello Rogus,

it is a chilling reality, isn't it?

Banding together & looking out for one another is one way.

Violence?

That just gets you arrested & and article in the news claiming.......... "another Vet flipped out for no apparent reason & was arrested today. Possibly drugs or alcohol involved. Film at 11". ......

Since you get no benefits while your in jail. That funding can be better spent in someones pocket besides yours. Maybe a nice plasma TV for the office? Or an aquarium?

You would be way ahead of the game, to learn how to armor up with technics, like how to keep it from getting to you.

Except for Veterans, the truth is, very few care.

The VA Inspector General should be informed of instances of VA fraud whether it involves VA employees or others committing fraud that affect VA patients or VA- compensated veterans.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
