    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

Question

Well after 7 months, I received a partial approval of my request to remove SPN number from DD 214.One usually has 3 years from release of service to file to remove any codes attached to DD 214.It was almost 40 years before I was even aware of this code and the damage it creates until I saw a article from Ed Crosby. Contacted him and he told me how to proceed.It is funny that the records I requested from NPRC that they had originally, but later denied having them were what was used to approve my request.The only difference in the records are the dates of when and where are off by 6 months. So I have requested copies of them for my disability claim. But the three judge panel deceided to waive the 23 yr statue of limitations,approved removal of code from all military records and will issue me a new DD 214 and they also upgraded discharge from General under Honorable Conditions to Honorable Discharge. No change in benefits, only difference besides title is General is in Black and White and Honorable is in shiney Technicolor. Due to how busy they are all this will take months to complete.(Curious to why they are so busy.This was supposedly all done in late 70's.Their only function is to correct Army military records. Each service has their own dept.) Once I receive updated copies, I will go into phase 2 per Eds guidance. So score is 1 win for VA, 1 win for Veteran.Trip to OKC went well, soon to receive several IMOs and even found a Great attorney at the Medical Clinic.Remembered non related surgeries that will fill in timeline on Section 1151 claim. Looking forward to DRO Hearing.(still no 30 day notice of when) I guess sometime in Feb 2013. Hoping Hoppy is Ok and await his comments.BigRed
