New To The Forum And New To Va Manila. Hi


Recommended Posts

To start off:

Born 1987 Seoul South Korea (Immigrated at 6 months)

US Air Force Active Duty (March 2005 to July 2007)

E-3 (3P051) Security Forces

Stationed in Malmstrom AFB (Montana) and Incirlik AB (Turkey)

Placed on TDRL Status July 2nd 2007.

Permanently Medically Retired (TDRL finalized Oct 2010)

Entered VA December 2007 at 70%

VA Increase August 2010 to 80%

Listed as OIF-OEF Veteran (3 years after they said I was approved)....can I get this extended past my end date of 2007 July)...it's 5 years right?

Since then married filipina now divorced. Moved back overeas to the Philippines.

Going back to college on Voc Rehab and 9/11 Living Allowance Benefits (1st Term of 2013...January). School is different here.

College is getting accredited. C.I.E. Mabolo Cebu Philippines. International Strategic Marketing.

Requesting records to file any new claims for benefits.

One is rated currently at 60% and total of 80% Combined. Looking for VSO or VRO in the Philippines to help me file a TD combined claim and win.

Had my first appointment getting my files transfered from VA Fort Harrison to Regional Manila Office.

May 10th (Benefits Appointment)

May 16th (Initial PCM Appointment)

May 22th (Specialty Care VA Manila)

My records have been messed up and slowly being corrected as most vets deal with. I was discharged around the Walter Reed fiasco and was PRP Nuke if that holds any interest. Now 25, divorced, screwed up knee surgery thanks to the Va and constantly ignoring the complaints. At least I got my College Benefits and decent compensation.

Anyone else in the Philippines my age?

Philippines is a beautiful place and much of it is untouched still. Not a fan of the cities here but places like Bohol and Negros are really pretty.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    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.


    • 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.


    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?

    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
