Blue Water Navy Vets!



Mike (Stretch) reminded me in social-

this information cannot be repeated enough- it is too important- this is the biggest news since the VCAA (which the VA buggered already), and the Nehmer Court Order.

Whether or not Haas is appealed by the VA successfully---- all affected veterans filing claims under Haas or re-opens will be awarded SC for AO if they have a AO presumptive and the receipt of the VSM.

The NVLSP statement I published here last week also mentions Thailand vets and what they should do- and also the Haas decision covers many BVA vets and those at the CAVC -if Blue Water and with a presumptive AO condition.

NVLSP confirmed to me last week that this Haas decisions covers all affected Blue Water Navy widows too.

affected veterans and widows are those Blue Water vets or their widows who have the receipt of the VSM on their DD 214s, served in Blue Water off Vietnam-like Dixie Station, 7th Fleet, and Yankee Station.

The South China Sea was a big place.

One attorney said this could affect millions of veterans and their widows. They must act as fast as they can-to get these claims filed before VA makes a move to knock this all down.

Any affected veteran should take a copy of the NVLSP statement I puiblished here or a copy of Haas-at CAVC- I think it is 29 pages long---- with them when they see their vet rep or SO and file a new claim or re-open their old claim. A re-opened claim should be filed under the Haas decision and should refer to the Haas decision within the claim.

I could not attach this decision here from a floppy-

it is on the net-

These veterans and their widows are now part of the Nehmer Class Action Law Suit which NVLSP won.

Beverly Nehmer was the widow they represented.

I put our hadit link at many of my vet orgs that maybe didnt have it- Blue Water Navy web site has it now-OSR has all the AO info too-sent it to Gary Chenett-

I only hope that the ordeal of the lst few days will help newbys realise that it will take time for them to get validated.And I hope that Blue Waters will read this information and react to it whether they join here or just read the posts.

  • 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.

    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
