Question On Possible Open Claim

Rate this question



Hope this is in the right Forum

My attorney just emailed me an article in a news letter he receives.

The article is in the "Missouri Lawyers Weekly" issue July 29, 2013.

It is about an attorney working Pro Bono for a Missouri Navy veteran (blue water) that had written a letter to his Missouri congressman back in 1983 and which functioned as acclaim.

The attorney managed to get the veteran back pay to 1983 for his back.

Then with the help of a scientist managed to prove that the plumes from the Mekong River surrounded the Perry and the throat cancer the vet suffered from, was AO connected and in total got the veteran $250,000.00. And remember the attorney was working Pro Bono.

The vet got it all.

I would include copies from the article but they are awful dark. You might be able to pull the newsletter up and read it online.

If this helps one more Vet Good if it helps a whole ship load GREAT.

Yeah, the vet got $250,000 in retro.


The site has a fee apparently for reading the whole story.

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
