    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

Good question ,and I think the VSO's give them more attention as well to get new members. The VA has never given the Vietnam Era vets a break and the First Gulf War vets and Korean vets are forgotten as well.

when i returned from Iraq last July, i fianlly registered with the V.A. i was told that the Iraq and Afghanistan returning vets are given priority 1 veterans status,if they file within 1 year of returning, why? i have no idea. i've been waiting quite a while, and i havent seen or heard anything being expedited concerning my claim. in Houston there are 17,500 claims ahead of mine. i say first come, first served. i was also told that the V.A. in Houston(unknown what other locations) were given a 5 million dollar grant to start moving cases 6 months and older out of the system,and get them settled. i'm fortunate enough to have my next door neighbor (husband and wife) both work for the v.a. and lets me know whats going on with that kind of news. i'm new to this V.A. stuff. i've never filed a claim in all my 22 years of military service, i was diagnosed with ptsd, i'm running out of options,GAF score 45 , i cant work.(dr. wont release me) i'm anxious as well. good luck to everyone..martin spears

I can explain. It's an active War.

If the public was to hear returning soldiers were being treated as the rest of us are there would be hell to pay for the politico. The Gulf War 1 Vets did get some early timely decisions. Untill they were out of the limelight.

Simple as that. And when this one is over they'll be in the boat with us.
