    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?”

    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

Ao Hold Letter From Va



  • In Memoriam

This is what the new AO hold letter, for Blue Water Vets, looks like. I have chopped the letter in size to use less web space. I also removed my name and file number. Go to the button at the lower right to expand the Letter. As you move your curser the expand button will appear at the bottom right of the letter.

Thanks Mike- this regards the Stay proceedings and hopefully, the stay will be resolved soon.

At least the VA is telling AO Blue Water veterans the status of all of these claims.

Wonder what Nov. 7 2006 has in common with the last day for the VA to appeal AO CVAC decision and elections.



The Secretary of Veterans Affairs has implemented a stay on the adjudication of Haas-like claims.

However, a recent decision of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims makes it clear that the VA has not followed the proper procedure for taking such action.

So, on September 28, we filed a Writ of Mandamus with the Court, requesting that the Court order the VA to rescind its illegal stay of proceedings on Haas-like claims.

Yesterday, the judge ordered the VA to file an answer to our Writ by October 26.

Additionally, the VA has asked the Department of Justice to appeal the Haas decision, but the DOJ has yet to do so.

They have until November 7 to appeal.

I hope this information is helpful.
