Fort Devens, Ma


Question

When I was a teen and adult I was on Fort Devens a lot. My Father was a Civil Engineer, with the Dept. of Army Corp of Engineers. Dad was the Chief Engineer in Charge of all buildings and plans on Devens. I found out that Fort Devens (now closed ) was on the Super Fund to clean it up for AO. Man I was exposed to AO long before I ever got to Nam!

Devens is now a Reserve Forces Training Area (RFTA), now.

Wow, I had my first AIT at Devens, had an accident, then had another AIT at another base.  It seems this never ends.  Still waiting for my appeal to be sorted out.

Nothing ever surprises me bud. I have Crohn's due to Parasites in OEF and South America, and Asthma due to burning Sh** in OIF/OEF. Seems like the Govt gets us sick before we were suppose to get sick.

I was at Devens in 1974 & 75 with the 39th Engineers. I live about 5 miles from there, but never

heard of any clean up. Its residential housing & commercial space now. There is still a small

military presence there. I think 1 National Guard unit & a small Army unit. It really is quite

a beautiful area now.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
