    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

Veterans Survival Guide

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

I got a book called "The Veterans Survival Guide". It is very good in describing the claims process. It has some good information on what to appeal when given an inadequate C&P Exam. It is very easy to read and gives step by step instructions on how and when to file a claim for compensation. I got it from Barnes and Nobel via their online store. I got a used copy for $12. The Author cites many claims where the C&P doctors did not have the veterans claims folder present and did not have the credentials to give an adequate exam. It is even worse than I thought, and he illustrates that the entire VA benefits system is incompetent and biased. I believe he worked out of a VSO at the Bay Pines VARO. After you read this book you will wonder how any vet gets fair compensation given the roadblocks the VA sets up to defeat the vet.

The updated version of this publication was released this month. The original version was written prior to the change in the law regarding the need for the veteran to establish a well-grounded claim, which is no longer required due to the VCAA. Major John Roche wrote this book, and has also written another book that provides great assistance in filing for PTSD claims.

I understand that he's currently working on a book that discusses filing appeals.

Not much on CUE. I think someone should write a book just on the subject of CUE. I filed a CUE on my initial decision granting SC in 1972. I expect to have a hard row to hoe, but maybe I will get hints from the denial on what to do next.
