    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?”

  • 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

That is a good file. You could probably multiply those cases by 10,000 or 100,000 to show how VA screws vets and even employees regarding disability claims.

I am of the opinion that there needs to be more reporting of how the VA functions, makes mistakes, and even gets it right . The media is super powerful and youtube is one that gets attention.

I think it was ABC that did a piece on Viet Nam, Agent Orange, and how the VA was denying Blue Water Sailors presumption for exposure. Very good reporting.

Part of my claim involves Agent Orange exposure and they show a report I sent them on it as part of my claim file.

Great Post Carlie.

This just goes to show how arrogant the upper management are at the VBA.

They fire an employee for questioning their decisions. Now by law, she is doing her job to the title 38 cfr and the Managers are not.

Something has to give here.

This case deserves intervention from The secretary himself.

You start putting numbers before quality you get a piece of crap int he end result and most likely will be out of business.

Oh Wait this is the VBA. They are funded by us.

When my claim was active I found out that my file and my VA Rating Officer were not in the building.Seems that she worked from home and not at VA.

I was told today by my Service Officer that they use Michigan State students to go over claims.

You do know how to get a Michigan graduate off your front porch?

Pay him for the Pizza!!!

On a serious note, you might want to get a new service officer, apparently the one you have is good at speculation. Although I guess it is possible that the VA has some student intern positions that might have some MSU students in them, but seems such a long drive when Michigan is just within spitting distance. I of course am also speculating, but something tells me AFGE would prevent subcontracted services, for such a core function of its membership.

I do have to tip my hat to Michigan B-ball this year, good job on slapping down Ohio State last night!

Best regards,

I heard that VA pulled some DOD people to work on claims a few months ago...maybe if I can find the email I got on that I could post more on it....

Maybe it just regarded DFAS CRDP CRSC issues.
