    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.
    • 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?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting 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

Document Attached To Help With Chronicity And Continuity

I'm not sure I attached this file right, so if someone needs it emailed, just let me know. This document info came from the DAV Court Citations.

Also don't overlook the diseases or conditions that are considered chronic already. If a veteran can show he or she developed one of the listed diseases during service or within the presumptive period and has a current diagnosis and disability from the disease, it shouldn't be a big hassle to service-connect even after a long delay in applying. Even many years.

Chronic diseases listed in 38 U.S.C.S. § 1101(3) or adopted by VA in 38 C.F.R § 3.309(a) (2005) are the following:

Anemia, primary;



atrophy,progressive muscular

brain hemorrhage;

brain thrombosis;


calculi of the kidney, bladder, or gallbladder;

cardiovascular-renal disease, including hypertension; [i've been told a few HP readings is not considered a diagnosis of hypertension]

cirrhosis of the liver;


diabetes mellitus;

encephalitis lethargica residuals;




Hansen’s disease;

Hodgkin’s disease;


lupus erythematosus, systemic;

myasthenia gravis;




organic diseases of the nervous system;

osteitis deformans (Paget’s disease);


palsy, bulbar;

paralysis agitans (Parkinson’s disease);


purpura idiopathic, hemorrhagic;

Raynaud’s disease;



sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral;

sclerosis, multiple;


thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger’s disease);

tuberculosis, active;

tumors, malignant, or of the brain or spinal cord or peripheral nerves;

and ulcers, peptic (gastric or duodenal).

Hope this helps.
