    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

My mother died in 96 when I was 14, and we used to watch the old series together. Brings back a lot of good memories. I am young, but she has been gone almost 20 years, and the sad thing is I can not remember most things about her, or even her wonderful voice. This damn PTSD, just breaks me in ways that I never thought would happen. God Bless rest her soul

There goes my childhood. I watched the original series. Remember the first pilot which was about returning the original captain of the Enterprise to that weird planet ruled by the illusionists? I remember Spock playing bad guys in Highway Patrol on TV. He was a skinny, sinister thug with a switchblade. How unlike his real personality. Shatner is doing OK with the ads on TV although he is fat as hell. I remember him from Twilight Zone with the gremlins on the airplance.

He had a good life!!! I'd like to make 83yo. I checked SSA stats and they figure based on my age now(69), they estimate I'll make 85yo but that doesn't bring into count any medical conditions. Anyone of us that served in VN are living on borrowed time, for sure!

Thanks, Leonard Nimoy, for all the pleasure you brought us over the years!!!

It is saddening to know he is not knocking around any more. I truly enjoyed watching him play Spock.
