    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

Blue Water Vet Ao


Laurie

Question

Hi Everyone

Just did an up date on my Dad in Social Chat and the lost of my mother.

I have been also trying to help my Father-in-law who has Mulitple Myeloma. Dad 2 was dianosed with the myeloma in June 2006. Dad 2 served 3 tours in Viet Nam on air craft carriers stationed at Yankee Station.

Ships were the USS Dale and USS Hornet (CVSG-57).

I wrote the claim using the Haas case, request 100% SC for AO exposure. Dad 2 is currently in Chemotherapy for the myeloma is showing a level 80% in the bone marrow. Dad 2 is still trying to work at the age of 75 selling real estate. Dad is a retired Officer from the Navy Lt Commandor.

The last I saw on the Haas case was the VA was putting all new claims on hold till the VA could appeal the Haas ruling. Dad 2 never step foot on land in Viet Nam and was not in the DMZ as was Dad 1 was.

Many of the rulings I used for my Dad (1) to get the AO on the blue water SC does not apply with my Father-in-law (Dad 2). Any help with this new claim would be of help and any new updated information of where the VA is on dealing with new claims resulting from the Haas rulings.

Thank you in advance -

Laurie

Laurie- I am so sorry to hear that your mother died-

I haven't read this in Social yet.

I am so glad to see you post.

This vet should certainly make sure the claim is filed.

There is a Stay proceeding in the Haas case- all AO Blue Water vet claims are on hold-

VA is fighting against this ruling but many vet orgs are fighting to keep the decision.

NVLSP has advice for these claims at :

Also there was some recent discussion here as to the latest info on the Haas case.
