Look at the water source as a possible problem for her conditions and yours. Recent studies in Vietnam was that water is one of the many source of the Agent Orange to infect us.

Hello Ridehard and SP4,,,

This report is dealing with Fort Wainwright and is very ,,,very compelling evidence. It will be also to your benefit to use EPA and superfund to see that Fort Wainwright is on the list also. Fort Greely was transferred to the Fort Wainwright by those trying to hide all that goes on there back in Ohhhh maybe 95 or 96. Also look at the Alaska Dept of Environmental Conservation (ADEC)on Fort Wainwright. It is interesting to note how the acreage for Fort Wainwright increased then by 600,000 acres. Alot of jurisdiction to hide the other problems and to keep the heat off of Fort Greely. You will see what I mean when you start to pull up all the old information and then notice the agencies that start to transfer acreage and change their names to confuse those that would investigate and cause problems. It is a mess for sure and I am thankful that alot is archived here so you can do most of the research to see what I am talking about. NEVER GIVE UP. God Bless, C.C.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
