    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

From the terms and conditions, it sounds like they are a "we help do the legwork" type of entity, but they don't represent you in the same capacity of a regular VSO or law firm. I'll stay with Hadit.

Thanks Vync! I didn't even know that there were places out there that operated in that space besides a VSO or a Law Firm.

Like many others here, I have personally helped friends and family with the VA claims system nightmare. I guess someone put together a similar business model and ran with it. I don't know anything about that company and cannot tell if they are good or bad, but I remember Carlie (R.I.P.) telling me that regardless of who might help with my claim, the responsibility ultimately belongs to me. At that point, I stopped accepting a VSO typing up a one sentence "fire and forget" claim and took control of my own claims.

I recently discovered Had-it! and I really like it. My VA Comp claim is over 5 years old now. Two denied claims (VARO checked the NAVY & AIR FORCE first ( I was ARMY 1973-1979 ) my appeal denied with NO reason given and my NOD was filed successfully 12/28/2015. IT is lying at the VARO according to eBenefits. I was contacted by the attorney for VA in Kentucky and told me to cease communicating with the VA and move to a VSO. He asked which one I was going to use but I didn't know at the time. I went with the DAV but they have to have Power of Attorney to get my files from the VA. I suppose I should get an attorney as well. 

My oncologist (Vanderbilt-Nashville) states in his letter that I am 100% Disabled and goes on to mention that pancreatic cancer normally strikes men in their late 60's, I was 49.  He also states it is "at least as likely as not" that the radar radiation(s) caused my pancreatic cancer. For 8 & 1/2 years after the 9 hour Whipple Procedure I took 1200MG of morphine capsules daily, 60MG hydrocodone and a 100MCH Fentanyl patch changed every 3 days. When those started to cause damage to my heart, bones and brain he moved me over to the Interventional Pain Management Clinic where I was hospitalized for 30 hours and they implanted a "pain pump" in my lower left abdomen. IV tube runs around to my spine where they made a 3" vertical incision and pushed the diffuser tip up around the T3-T5 area and it flows 24/7. It helps a little but I still think I am at about a "5" on the standard physician smiley chart. I am homebound, can't drive more than a mile, 100% neuropathy in both hands and feet and have zero balance. My vision is fuzzy and I am diabetic due to the removal of over half my pancreas. 


Up to 6 surgeries now on my abdomen. Two were to implant rubber/steel mesh across my whole abdomen, the Whipple incision was so long it split open twice plus, I got a Staph infection during my 9 day stay in the hospital. Went home with a wound vac and a port in my upper RH chest for 6 months of IV chemo.

So, my stomach looks like a map of East Tennessee country roads. Along with everything else it sorta' sucks. But would I serve my country again? YOU BET!
