    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Viewer Profile



I read this board daily and enjoy it alot. I wish I had more knowledge on some of the subjects so I could join in.

I have a question. On my viewer profile I notice something that is not on anyone elses.

At the very bottom it has (warn: (0%) then five pale blue boxes.

Is this a code of some sort.

I think we all have that same warning thing on our profiles KKP.

By the way- everyone here contributes and there never has been a dumb question asked at hadit.

It is amazing how much one can learn by reading the posts and how other vets got their awards.

And the legal beagle stuff- before you know it -you will be spouting 38 CFR and other VA case law.

As much as having medical evidence, the VA regulations control us as well.

Walter, who just posted in Success, won by having both.

He gave them the evidence they needed and used their words against them when he could.

I keep forgetting that in Sept. I won my rights from the VA-rights they had denied me for over 3 years now.

The regs tell us what they(VA) should do, and how they should handle claims and make awards.

If they don't go by the book but expect us to fulfill rating criteria and deadlines, I say- make those regs work for the claim.Call them in a NOD or response on their errors of fact or law. Remind them, with a copy of their own regs, if they fail to use them correctly.

I send them M21-1 sometimes-Title 38 is the law, 38 CFR tells them the way it should be applied, M21-1 is their adjudication and claims manual showing the normal SOP for applying the 38 CFR regs. I imagine sending them their regs could even help them rate a claim better-especially if the veteran wants higher rating and shows them exactly how their medical evidence supports the higher criteria in the rating schedule-with a copy of the rating schedule sent with the evidence.

We are glad you are here. I bet you helped a vet or two out there already by telling us about your claim.

You are probably right, however, what I was speaking of is when you bring each members review up you will find that I am the only one on the entire board who has this: Warn: (0%) and then 5 blue boxes.

I noticed this when I clicked on kkp and I have noticed it for several months. I not only like to read the threads on this board but I also click on other members reviews so I can become acquainted with the background that some share. I hope one of the elders or one of the administrators can tell me what it is. I would also be interested to know when someone else pulls up kkp on their computer to review is this message also on other computers or only mine. I hope it can be explained. If not, I suspect sinister forces at work. I have had to walk on eggshells in filing for my PTSD service connection as some people even today don't want some things known. I will leave it at that hoping someone in administration can enlighten me.

If you get a warning only you will see it. You are more likely to get a gentle nudge out loud on this Board.

eveyone has a warning system but each person can only see their own. and pete is right you will probably recieve a gently nudge before you get a warning. it is a built in feature in the forum software and no sinister forces at work.
