THANK YOU Chuck!

This list continues to grow,in great part, as Blue Water veterans try to prove their claims!!!!!

Many Blue Water vets have been able to prove Boots on the ground ,but others have pin pointed where their ships were in relation to the coast of Vietnam and how they were exposed to AO by other means, too.

This is something to be very Thankful for today!

In my case, I was on a minesweeper, the USS Engage, MSO 433. We made several trips to Viet Nam, and docked in Cam Rahn Bay and other places. I sent in deck logs to prove my exposure and was granted my claim. That was over a year ago and the ship still is not on the list. Since my disability letter shows exposure, will I have to fight the battle every time my claim changes?

I sure doubt you would ever need to prove exposure again!

"Since my disability letter shows exposure, will I have to fight the battle every time my claim changes?"

Hopefully not! The deck logs and a presumptive award should suffice. The only thing that can cause problems

is that an awarded disability that is both presumptive and direct might be incorrectly looked at as a basis for a further presumptive

claim. I actually had this happen. Once everything went to the Nehmer review board, things did get straightened out.

A fellow crewman on one of the ships I was assigned to had a problem in proving presumptive status. It turned out

that the VA was relying on an incomplete ship's history entry in the historical records. We were able to obtain copies of the deck logs,

and get the history corrected. The ship in question is now on the list by name, type, and squadron/division.

I started my claim before the VA really understood the differences between brown water and blue water.

As a result, I used records from a USAF facility that proved "feet on ground" Such things as post cards from the veteran with in country

APO/FPO addresses were also acceptable to the VA.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.

    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
