    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

Va Watchdog Has It Right!


Recommended Posts

"WHAT NOW?

For the past six years, the Democrats have valiantly tried to give the VA a fair budget and they have been beaten back at every turn. They have tried to pass Mandatory Funding for VA Healthcare and been voted down.

Now, the ball will be in the Democrats court.

It will be our job as veterans to hold them to their word.

We must not sit and wait...we must work with the new Congress to guarantee an adequately-funded VA."

So says Larry at VA Watchdog.

He's right!

Our fighting with the VA is asymmetrical warfare. They have power - we' don't. Justice delayed is justice denied. And boy, do we suffer from "justice delayed." We need to use the only form of power we have, our votes. We are in a unique situation. Congress is up for grabs for 2008 along with the presidency. Voter reactions will be a concern to the congresscritters from now until the 2008 elections. We need to really arise and power-play our congressional reps with a unified voice. Whether you're ambulatory or not is irrelevant. The computer is mightier than the sword! We can all contribute. And we need to start NOW!

Objee,

I agree that veterans should contuine to work toward a cause that benefits us all. However you make it sound like veterans ousted the republicans, I think they helped, but they darn sure didn't do it by themselfs. It fact I will go a step further... most veterans don't vote for someone because of veteran issues, if that was the case we would not be having the short falls that we have today. Anyway that is just the way I see it.

Rick,

The comment about democrats was in the VA Watchdog article. My point isn't political except that the VA is a politically governed organization - no matter who's in charge. "The law" seems to be very negotiable with the VA. Congressional oversight can be more effective and we can access the overseers easily to improve things.

What I'm trying to say is simply that, given the election results, politicians are shocked. They are now looking to consolidate gains or reverse them. We, as voters, will be important to them for the next 2 years. We have their attention!

Let's make use of that to tell them clearly what we want them to do. The meek may inherit the earth but they don't do well working through today's VA maze!
