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.
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.
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.
Post 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?”

Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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
Latest update for BVA hearing for 1151. BVA hearing was March 2016. Was 6 months hospitalization and failed surgeries. Necrotizing pancreatitis and too many other problems to list here.
5 more appeals that were also suppose to be BVA hearings, but were never scheduled. My VSO asked the judge for those to be included as part of the 1151. On Ebenefits website, it says the VA worked on the BVA hearing decision yesterday, 06-21-16, the last date I saw progress was May 2016. There is no more info on what they were working on. I Only says there is, was/will be a BVA hearing. It's confusing because it doe not actually state whether the one BVA hearing was combined as requested during the hearing. I formally requested the original BVA hearing in 2009. But they only gave me one for the 1151 I filed. In any case, it did say action the case was worked on yesterday. But nothing specific. it only points to a generic page about BVA hearings.Edited by retiredat44 (see edit history)
