    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?”

ranger,

Excellent informative article. Hopefully the Newsweek article and the information regarding the coverup will help Gulf War veterans get the compensation they deserve from exposure to toxic agents during the Gulf War.

THIS IS OUR AGENT ORANGE.. hopefully NSLVP get s a action going ..!!!

Also dont forget whom it was that got caught trying to close the door on desert storm vets by meeting with the medical leadership and trying to persuade them to stop calling it desert storm veterans.. She was trying to lump all vets who served in Iraq in one basket, so that our concerns become a moot point.

DEMAND THAT THEY CALL YOU A DESERT STORM VETERAN.!!! DONT LET THEM THROW US AWAY..!!!

I was in country for almost 6 months and several times all of the chemical alarms went off, we got into Mopp 4 .. shortly after we were told false alarm.. this went on several days in a row. I recall the sickly smell in the air. kind of pungent and burns the throat.

im sure i was exposed, we just trusted our leaders and believed they would be honest.

Im sure I could find people in my unit that would testify to that fact, if they are still with us.

Ive been saying all along, all of the surveys and Gulf war registry exams are just diversions/.. They want to study us long term and learn the effects of the poisoning we recieved, but dont want to compensate us for it.

Independant testing was done shortly after the war and it was found proof positive that the clothes had chemicals of sarin gas on them.

The VA is now doing the same thing to us that they did our vietnam brothers, they are engaged in a war of attrition and denial.

Time is on thier side, not ours.

Something else to think about, how will this affect our children and grand children. will they have cancers and birth defects. ?

This is your country... this is our reality. We spent billions of dollars and 13 years in Iraq, but they dont care to help us.

Ross Perot paid to have uniforms tested.

"They want to study us long term and learn the effects of the poisoning we received, but don't want to compensate us for it."

Thats the government way! There was a now closed "study" involving workers that were exposed to radium during WWII.

The study was independent (non VA) concerning workers that used radium containing paint on instrument dials.

Many died from cancer decades after the original exposure.

same thing with mercury based preservitives in vaccines and autism.. they did a big study then sealed it.

they do these studies with taxpayer money, and GIVE the results to big pharmacy, but hide them from the public.
