    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?”

    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

Question

How Many Vets Are Using Hadit.com ? In My Opinion Vets Do Not Need Vso's. What They They Need Is A Case Worker Who Works For The Va Who Is Compassionate And Has Real Answers For The Vet. This Case Worker Will Provide A Pre-Warning To A Denial So That It Isnt Completely Denied And Allow The Vet To Answer Questions Or Provide Evidence. I Strongly Believe Through The Amount Of Veterans Allison Hickey Has Already Helped In One Day Of Her Emails That If Give The 1700 + 578 People She Asked Congress For But They Denied She Could Get This Done.... Call To Arms !!!!!! Call Your Congress Persons And Get Allison What She Needs !!!!! We Dont Need Vso's We Need Caring Case Workers At The Va. And Give Them A Shot With Allison On There Backs !!!!!! If We Have The Numbers Here At Hadit.com I Think We Can Get This Done !!!!!!

The VA should be proactive but as long as it is in bed with Service Organizations Veterans are screwed.

FROM A WASHINGTON POST ARTICLE ABOUT ALLISON:

At the end of last year, between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, about a dozen suicidal veterans e-mailed her, some threatening to take their lives if they did not get their benefits, she recounted. She addressed each one personally, she said, calling in therapists and personally checking on each of the cases.

“Everyone in my inbox is alive today,” she said.

Hickey said she receives hundreds of e-mails a week from veterans and tries to answer all of them, although sometimes this means e-mailing in the middle of the night.

“Many have stories that would make you cringe — I hear them all the time. I am glad they make me uncomfortable, break my heart, keep me awake at night and even, at times, bring me to tears. It has spurred me to action on their behalf,” Hickey told cadets during her speech.
