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.

    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. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
