    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

By the way MARINES!

Pres. Bush just announced to the parents of Lance Cpl Dunham, deceased, Iraq, at the big Marine Corps Museum celebration today in Quantico that Corporal Dunham has posthumously received the Medal of Honor.

Dunham, with no regard at all for his safety- selflessly threw himself onto a grenade and saved two Marines.

He died a few days later of his horrific wounds from this brave act.

The new museum's odd trangular roof shape is actual a representation of the Flag raising at Iwo Jima.

Many of my teachers are in that crowd as they are based at Quantico.

Cpl Dunham's act of courage is even more unforgetable to Marines who knew him- his birthday would have been today-the Corps Birthday too.

I work for a small aviation company that fly Learjets and Falcon aircraft. We have appox 60 employees. Today for the 13th straight year we had a cake for the USMC birthday. We only have 3 marines. It is of interest to note that over the years most of the people know and share our birthday but don't know the birthday of the other services. The deli messed up our cake today and it was the worse looking cake in marine history. But like all good marines we still ate and shared our cake with all hands.
