    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

Help With Shreddergate:



  • Moderator

Berta posted:

I gave written testimony to the H VAC during Shreddergate, enclosing to the committee 53 tracking slips of evidence I had sent to my VARO over the years they they had chosen to ignore., even keeping critical evidence from the General Counsel's office in 1996.

end Berta post.

In recent correspondce, I was speaking with a high profile VA employee. When I expressed concern that my evidence had been shredded in the 2008 "Shreddergate", she said she did not come to VA until 2011, and new nothing about VA in 2008, and would I fill her in.

I looked on vawatchdog, and the story explaining shreddergate was gone.

So, Berta (or others) do you have a "live link" explaining shreddergate, and especially the Cleveland RO director who was promoted instead of fired in the shreddergate fiasco.

Or, cut and paste it. Thanks. Shreddergate happened in 2008, and mine is not fixed yet.

VA Watchdog is pretty good organization, they contacted me about a MIC (Mortgage Investment Corporation) We had our home financed with & was a VA Approved loan

& VA Watchdog found out they ( MIC)were a fraudulent company, So we refinance with a different company before we got screwed.

You nailed it, again. I was most interested in Belinda Flinn's testimony to Congress. I may well have uncovered a lie, here. You see, Cleveland RO was NOT on the shredder list, when I happen to know they were a participant, AND the Cleveland RO manager was "promoted" to VACO. So, why was Cleveland RO "covered up"??
