Question

I have tried to get this message out to reflect the point of NVLSP_ file the claim before the VA takes steps to change all this- Haas is Law of the Land and that can change anytime!

This is what I mean!

http://vawatchdog.org/old%20newsflashes%20...9-15-2006-1.htm

"VA NOT PROCESSING AGENT ORANGE CLAIMS FROM "BLUE WATER

NAVY" VETS -- VA contemplating appeal of Court decision granting

Agent Orange benefits to "Blue Water Navy." Claims put on hold

at Regional Offices. Vets to get letter of explanation."

They will try for a Stay in these proceedings- that means the claims are held in abeyance until the regs VA either succeeds or loses-

my bet is- with enough pressure from vets the VA will lose this attempt and Blue Water will succeed.

If you are a AO vet-file the claim-

If your vet rep or SO says no wait to see how this turns out-and then file the claim- dont listen and file the claim.

This article says the RO isnt processing AO Blue Water claims- tell me about it- the ROs aren't processing

MOST claims any how-AO or otherwise-

They are swiftly skimming through many claim, coming up with some BS denial statement, failing to send the veteran proper VCAA notification, overlooking evidence and-then a few minutes later-once they deny it ,flip in onto the outmail rack, they can add one more claim to their list that they "worked on" that week for the Morning Reports.

It is BS but nevertheless I say if you have an AO presumptive and are Blue Water -file the claim.

Even if a stay occurs- (I was in the Gardner Stay and Moratorium for my Section 1151 claim in 1995-1997) the minute the stay is lifted they have to work on stayed claims.

Berta,

I read (on VVA Talklist, I think) what Alex had to say on this subject. I thought I saved the Email, but must had deleted. If the Stay is granted, the VA will have this overturned. So from what I remember it is VERY IMPORTANT that the Stay not be granted. Just when you think the VA might be forced to do the right thing,

are they going to have it overturned in court. I hope not.

I recieved my denial for AO claims, from the VARO, last week. The special note was that, "No boots on the ground".

I was sent CVAA letter, for these AO claims, and have a Fasting blood sugar test Tuesday 9/19. CVAA letter will go in Tuesday after the test, with a note to add the test.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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
