DOA- I only hear that on a police scanner-and not often- dead on arrival-

I suggest you email the SO and ask him what these initials stand for---

I have never heard them before-

Did he mean DRO? Decision Review Officer?

Guys (you too, Berta :unsure: ), in this instance, I don't believe his SO is telling him that his 1151 is "dead on arrival" but, instead is referring to an office or a person at the VA (although what office or what person, I do not know). Don't mean to interrupt, but I just didn't want Sbrewer and her husband to get discouraged ( Lord only knows, it's discouraging enough already! ).

OH No- I didn't mean that at all--- this claim is still in progress-I am sure-

I have never heard this acronym from a SO-it is VA lingo- an SO would not say a claim is DOA would they?

Sec 1151 claims- the VAROs do write stuff on the files- they might appear to push these claims under the rug but they take them very seriously-

Mine had Attention-SECTION 1151 written all over the c file-on VA internal docs-

I just cannot figure out what this could mean unless sbrewer asked for a DRO review and the vet rep cant spell.

(maybe department of adjudication?)

sbrewer-on your last response from VA, in the upper right hand corner under their Re:

they code your VARO and often give initials of someone you should Re: to in any response that you make.

Could this be someones initials at the RO?

I would reply to this email and get this clarified.

I got some email from my vet rep-that re-wrote VA regs and case law- I just had to send him the VA reg-he apparently made one up.

Thanks everyone,

I could have been a typo for the SO.

Maybe this will help..

the claim was denied and then the SO appeled that decision. He was then sent for a C&P and the dr. wrote "as likely as not" caused from the VA. After this, do you know who would make the decision on the claim? What is DRO? I haven't seen any paper work, this is what my husband told me that the email from his SO said that he received from him on Friday.

yeah -sounds like it must be a typo-

unless- did your husband ever request a DRO review?

DRO- Decision Review Officer?

The "more likely than not" should award the claim-

SHOULD- one just never can anticipate what they will do-----
