Question

I was getting a letter every two months from the va in chicago, now i havent received one since dec. The letter basically said they have my claim but it is in backlog. Which i understood, i ask the american legion to tell me what was going on and they called me a week later and said the va in chicago told them to tell me it will probable take years for my claim to move from review so basically dont bother them. I am very disappointed in the process, I gave them everything that was ask for to include a dr nexus and several buddy letter to back up my claim. I am just venting not even sure this was the right location to do this and if not i appologies. has this happened to anyone else as far as receiving the letters and now not?

It happen's all the time with VA. It like a Bus that never gets there. If I was you I would call the 1-800-827-1000 and talk to them direct.

Be nice, even if you have to wait 15 minutes to talk to someone! Ask them what going on and tell them have been waiting a long time.

As much as I gripe about the VA ,I find that statement the rep said the VA told him- to be extraordinary-

The rep might have made that all up. That is solely my opinion. Due to some of my experiences.

However- maybe you have a very difficult claim.

Was the doctor's nexus statement a formal Independent medical opinion with a full medical rationale that complies with what the VA needs to have, as within our IMO forum here?

Did the ;'buddies' give the VA their home contact info, and state clearly how their MOS and time in service put them at the scene of whatever they gave an eye witness account for, at same place ,same time you were there?

If you tell us more in the Claims Research forum here as to what you have claimed ,maybe we can help more.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
