Attention Carlie, Tbird, Other Mods:

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.

If you did not notice yet, "makeitbetter" is trying to sell briquette machines or chicken dryers here on hadit.

If this guy does not want to consider discussing issues relevant to Veterans, then you should consider banning him. It could also be a hacker.

Make it better has been sent to the big charcoal burner located on the back of the Banned Member train. Nice catch Stretch.

Yeah I agree Broncovet...I was surprised to see that and never click on anything like that.

BTW the scams out there are pretty rampant this time of year in email.

They look like they are from Coscos, Walmart etc etc and they are messages asking you to verify the order you made or they say someone ,with your same credit info, ordered something...

They just want people to click on their bogus link which can also be contaminated by viruses, worms, etc etc....

Thanks Guys!!!!

I still cannot figure out why, when about a year ago there were 2 of us widows at hadit discussing her DIC case and we both got hit with the same internet threat.more than once in a 3 day period.

No one else here got the threat and luckily we both had the same Avast and anti malweare security on our PCs.

I was pissed. Us widows sometimes get enough threats and BS as it is.

Death brings out the worst in people , not here at hadit , but people we might know well...like neighbors , and unfortunately many people think a bereaved survivor

can be used.

These internet fishing reels are pretty good. They will dangle bait from post with your bank on it saying you need to stop fraudulent use of your account by going to such and such a site. The emails with warnings that your computer is infected with worms, malware are also slick. If you open the attachment you will have a virus attack.

This weekend is the most dangerous time of the year for cyberattacks. I used to do all my shopping online during this time but have chosen to not do so for safety reasons. I finished all my shopping in September for all 11 grandkids and 2 daughters and son-in-laws. They are bagged, tagged and I can sit back and enjoy Christmas movies.

Very Good idea Dinnard! That sure beats dealing with the Christmas crowds!

It shocks me to see people acting like bullies on TV ,to get those in-store Black Friday deals.

I still shop on line a little but only where I have shopped before...like on Amazon.

You are sure right about the cyberattacks.

  • 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.


    • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
