    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

The following is the index with links to the various Training and Fast Letters plus a few miscellaneous. These letters are not necessarily in the original formatting. I have tried to present them in an easy-to-read form instead of some forms as originally presented. Some of the paragraphs were WAAAAYYY too long. lol - HadIt.com Member fanaticbooks Something to be aware....Some of these letters may be rescinded, outdated, or otherwise no longer viable. I have still included them because sometimes they provide additional insight or just plain more information than the newest version. Use them wisely. The oldest letters will display at the bottom with the latest letters displayed at the top, all in sequential numbers. Coding of the letters... FL = Fast Letter TL = Training Letter First two numbers = last two digits of year of origin

Hello, I've been searching for FL 08-06 (Feb 27, 2008), its referenced in TL 10-07 section with The Rating Decision.  My claim for TDIU was deferred Feb 2012 and never given a formal rating.  It seems FL 08-06 (Feb 27, 2008) has disappeared.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

The Fast Letter 10-02 ( a Very important one because of the 120 day deadline) cannot be opened here:

This is the message I got and I could not find it anywhere else,except Carlie had posted it but someone today needed a pdf of it.

Here is the pdf below I made of the letter:

These Fast Letters are important...I hope others here are working.

And I hope this list is up to date.

Here are some issued in 2013 that might not be here:

http://vetaffairs.sd.gov/veteransserviceofficers/Fast Letters.aspx

They are all important.

We used to have the wonderful help here of Fanaticbooks who helped Tbird prepare the FLs, TLs and Directives,

but she was dealing with a lot ,illness and grief- widow of veteran as I recall, and also she had to put up with that RUR trouble maker who picked on four of us women here for over a year until he finally left the site.I dont really know why she left. 

It would be great if someone could help Tbird get this list up to date.
