18 Year Anniversary for HadIt.com Veteran

Jan 20, 2015 – 18 Year Anniversary HadIt.com

The site concept of veterans helping veterans with their claims was started by me in the 1993/1994 time frame under various personal websites that came with internet accounts back then. I used those years to reach out to other veterans on the internet and to learn how to create a site and what veterans were looking for and in Jan 1997 I registered HadIt.com and put all my work there.

More and more people are viewing the site through mobile devices tablets and smart phones. The new design for the site should display properly regardless of what device you view it on. There are still many pages in the old format and I am slowly getting them converted to the new format.

The forum remains the same, though a new version is coming this year. It will be the same forum software but will look a bit different and have some nice new features for you.

You will notice on the homepage that I have emphasised the search option. After all the years of having the website and forum we have a ton of information on the site and that is why searching is your best bet to find the information you seek.

Below I’ve provided traffic statistics from last year so you can see that you are part of something bigger than yourselves.

When I started HadIt.com I was adrift in a vast sea on small raft I had cobbled together, the winds were rough and the sea unforgiving but I drifted on. From time to time I would see another raft drift by, tie on I would say we will go the rest of the way together. And that is how we began, a few rafts tied together sharing resources and manpower and now look at us. A fine ship indeed with the best crew a skipper could ask for. Together forward shipmates we will sail. Gathering any that want to join our crew and work towards our common goal of helping veterans to that final port of call where they receive the compensation they earned. Some will leave us at this port and others will sign on as part of the crew. I tell you this veterans any veteran who sincerely wants help with their claim or sincerely wants to help veterans with their claim will find a berth on this ship.

You have done an amazing job that has helped countless numbers of Veterans and families. You can't do an internet search on "claims" without finding countless links to this site. Thanks for being here all these years!

You have helped thousands of veterans gain the knowledge necessary to apply and receive the benefits they earned and so desperately need. Many of us, including myself, would have been lost without the guidance and advice provided by your wonderful website. You are filling a void and providing a service that should be provided by the VA. You are the "Guardian Angel" for our nation's veterans.

Thank you so much.

  • 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.

    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
