Unepectedly Received ~800 Pages Of Documents From My File

just a guy



This is weird and I'm not sure what to make of it, or even where to post this.

I had a DRO review in June 2013 in Roanoke, VA. I am pending a BVA board. Date TBD. No # yet.

I received an enormous package addressed to me via US mail from the Roanoke office. This package includes about 800 pages of documents relating to my claims.

Many of them have receipt stamps on the front or back from the receiving VA office. Some have the two holes at the top as though they were in some VA c-file. They appear to be originals and not photocopies.

What am I to do with this, and what if anything does it mean?

Was this some kind of VA internal mistake and they were not supposed to go to me?

As usual, no one at Roanoke will answer my calls or emails.

I sure hope it wasn't what they were supposed to transfer to the BVA.......

Did you make a C file request at some point????

Still... My C file was full of copies as I recall and one original document at the bottom that, for 8-9 years they had told me had 'never existed'.

Was there a I-8 form near the top of the stack?

They fill out an I-8 prior to BVA transfer and also there might be a 646 there too..if so that would sure concern me if these 2 forms were originals....

You could ask them via IRIS why they sent these originals to you.....this sounds like what they usually send to the BVA.Everything they have.

"What am I to do with this, and what if anything does it mean?"

It might be a screw up .

Personally if I got something like this I would go over every single thing carefully 800 pages....a lot for just a C file, ...does it include med recs and SMRs too?

and then I would copy and keep copies of anything I found to be relevant to my claim.

If in fact you find out that this should have gone to the BVA, maybe best to contact the BVA ombudsman (their email addy is here under search) and send it to them yourself, if they agree to that.

Hope this gets straightened out soon.

It sounds like an error. First I'd keep everything in order and then I'd make copies, for myself, at Office Depot/Staples or some copy place. Then I'd contact the VARO, in writing, that sent them and ask what to do. Remember "if it can't be read, it wasn't said." jmo

I would get with your VSO and send the information back.

Make copies first because there seems to be a mix up somewhere.
