Join us for this show as James is an excellent speaker and is very active helping veterans.

The show was good and I am glad Jerrel mentioned the second AO award due to exposure to AO at Johnston Atoll.

http://www.va.gov/vetapp09/files5/0941553.txt

This is James Cripp’s AO Fort Gordon award.

It does not come close to his attempts to prove his case, as he detailed in past radio shows here.

Medical opinions as well as extensive evidence and his MOS all supported his claim.

This veteran ( I am sure he was the same vet on last night’s radio show,with James),

due to his MOS was exposed to AO at Fort McClelland ‘s “Tiger Village”.

He had medical opinion’s as well as statement from his inservice ‘supervisor’ to support his claim.

Both of these veterans, as well as other vets who have proven their disabilitiy(ies) were due to AO exposure outside of Vietnam,  proved they had Direct exposure to the AO, by virtue of their MOS, with no other etiology for their disabilities, but for that exposure.

 

The Special Housing grants ( which have changed recently) as well as the Adaptive auto grants they spoke of are explained at the VA web site and surely are searchable here.

Yes he does.

This is the DOD list of AO testing,use, storage etc issued many years ago:

http://www.publichealth.va.gov/docs/agentorange/dod_herbicides_outside_vietnam.pdf

Some vets (certainly James as well as Kurt Priessman) used this info from DOD to support their claims.

Not all places AO was used is on the list, and in every case except for Korea and Thailand Regulations (and the AO ships list) the veteran MUST prove their direct exposure.

Some MOS's by their nature would put the veteran directly on a perimeter that they could prove had been sprayed.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
