    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

I take it that you informed this person that you were, in fact, recording the conversation?

Thanks

Nope! So I broke the law when I did it or did I? My memory is non existent so I record most everything for my personal use only. I know I cant use the recordings for anything but personal use. The entire conversation is 45 minutes long so I wont post it. Just the fact that this guy has this attitude and basically as you heard he is not going to do his job.

I was just pointing out that you shouldn't let them make you so mad that you would be inclined to do something illegal or foolish. It seems that the gubbermint likes to latch on to something like that and run with it. I've known them to prosecute poor schmucks for less than that.

just sayin.........

My former vet rep told me something so bizarre in 2004 that I wish I had it on tape-

He said I could not send the VA anymore evidence after I had just elected a DRO review.

I didnt want to correct him-in front of a veteran I was helping so I emailed him the DRO's job description from M21-1 where it says he was wrong.

His reply was admitting the error and blaming his boss for giving him the wrong info. In email hard copy- so this was as good as a tape of it.I fwded this all to his boss- I know his boss never told him that- but how many others did he tell this too?

A veteran or widow can send evidence right up until they hold the pen in hand to sign off.

Like I said b4 my memory is non existent, I TAPE EVERYTHING and yes I could get in trouble if caught but unless I release the recordings who is gonna know....................maybe someday I would release a recording if it would save my ass. I am tired of dealing with people VSO and VA officials who speak with forked tongues, if its on tape there is no dispute who said what and if they indeed did say it. I think if I took that tape to that VSO's boss he would get fired. And if I took it to the VA they might think twice about paying this service organization after all these service organizations and VSO's get paid to help us not give us an attitude

Added more of the recording, see attachment..............

I'M pissed the VA wants me to make a decision, my VSO wont advise me, The qiuestion is of more exams. I inquired on Iris what exams I needed and why they hadnt been ordered in 4 months, I got a reply this morning.

It says " Since we have allready and appropriatley responded to your other request we must discontinue any further responses to you regarding this issue,"

I am setting up a meeting with my congressional rep. I am gonna play the two recordings for him, then ask him how am I supposed to make a decision. B) :) :)

FLHRCI ,

I don't understand why you would have to have more exams before a DE Novo review hearing.... unless you told the VA that the exams you previously had were inadequate ....

I did, but the C&P that I had in sept covered what I said was inadequate...............that exam was also inadequate
