Unreal Answer From Varo



  • In Memoriam

I called up the VA SCM (Service Center Manager) at Little Rock. I ask her if I needed any more IMO's (Independent Medical Evaluation).

This is what she told me:

You have diagnosis for all of your claims, no IMO's needed.

You have histories on all of your claims from end of service to present.

You have stressors to all of your claims.

She said that they are, once again, waiting for the stressors to be verified.

This was the last thing that I suspected. I was thinking about Diagnosis or Nexus documentation.

I also have six buddy letters, letters that were there, one from my X-wife (haven't seen for 30 years). Also two sworn blue ink, certified notary republic affidavits from, two squadron members, who were actually there. Both stressors, are located in my Service Medical and Dental records. VA has had this information for over 3 years. VA has copy of my recent award of MUC (35+ years late). Letter from the Captain of USS Ranger, the day of injury. I suppose that the stall is for some kind of calculations one way or the other.

So, I have gone through this for 5 years.

  • VA Denial
  • De Novo review denial
  • VA denial
  • De Novo review denial
  • Video Conference BVA 2 denials 4 remands
  • AMC stall for about 3 months
  • VA is currently stalling before it goes to DRO again.

CAVC, could be the next stop on this Big Bus. Has anyone given stressors that the VA has failed to read?

Actually, the Board gave my husband a 10% rating for a disability, and retro'd it back 12 years to the date of his initial filing. So it appears that they sometimes do make ratings.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • 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
