    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?”

    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

On a previous post 1968 said he was exposed to 107 arty. I was not familiar with that size arty. I calibrated the 105, 155, and 175mm all around the DMZ and I thought those were the only sizes availiable. A arty buddy of mine today told me that the 107's were like the 105's but the 107 could be transported by helicopters. It had a smaller base on a swivel instead of two long arms which made it more portable. It used the 105 rounds.

1968 I would hate for you to use the wrong info and give our friends at the VA a reason to deny your claim but as stated you are probably right using the 107 info. Take care. Terry Sturgis

I was field artillery.

I was on a M109A2sp Howitzer in the GW1. wich is a 155mm.

I'm not aware of the 107, but the M102 (pronounced- one oh duece- phonetically) was a towed gun that could be air transported. could have been 105mm I wouldn't know.

The 107 refered to may have been M107-a nomenclature not a mm size. But I'm still not familuar with it. However memory fails me somewhat with my head injury.

A correction to my post.

M102 was a towed 155mm cannon.

M109 was self propelled 155mm cannon.

I can't quite remember what the 8" (175mm) was.

It well could have been a M107 Self propelled 175mm cannon. The more I think about it, I think it was. However improvements in memory come slowly to me. Maybe in a little more time it will come to me.
