    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

I was in the dentist chair when the plane crashed into Tower One. We thought it had been an accident. When Tower Two was hit I think everyone knew it was terrorism.

Terry on 9/28 many of us were make sacrifices of burnt offerings to the Viking Gods to make sure you got 100%. World leaders were discussing the granting of 100% rating to Terry Higgins and asking what had gone wrong.

On 9-11 I was In Chicago. The 20th floor of a downtown hotel. I looked out the window and people on the sidewalk were looking up. The plane that went down in Ohio was missing. My kids called and told me to watch TV. We left the big city shorly after.

On 9-28 I received the bullentin on Mr. Higgens and immediatialy filed a claim with the VA fully understanding that all veterans with the name of "Terry" should be 100% P&T. Mission complete.

Billyboy, back on topic. I believe my memory problems are most likely from the fistfull of medications I take evevry day, and a little bit stems from getting older. Terry Sturgis

Nacotics will really mess with the short term memory. I have to write everything down or I forget. If I don't list it I will missed it. I had my physical therapy today and my back was hurting like hell, so I took a good dose of pain killer. Now I have to be extra careful and forgetting stuff.
