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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Cannot Believe this

Question

I have Boots on the Ground in a Combat Unit in Vietnam, and all of the credentials. My C&P exam shows I have ischemic heart disease and they aren't connecting my VN service as service connected? I am a little confused. I hired an attorney.

Seems to me you need to get these all Service Connected. 

File for increase on your S.C. PTSD  and fight them on all these other non service connected contentions.

Get private IMO'S/IME's try to get these service connected with medical evidence Dr's Nexus letters

Thanks Buck, My attorney is in the process, I just wanted to show how the VA can just mess with you. I have had Hypertension since my 20's and Blood sugar problems. I have talked to a lot of my Brothers and it seems to me, we all have one thing in common, Our health issues. My C&P exam clearly shows Ischemia CAD. I had a Private Doc, do the Heart Cath with 4 blockages and it was spelled out very clearly. But it just amazes me , How they can violate the law, and there is no accountability.

When was this decision made?

What rationale did they give in their Reasons and Bases for the denial of IHD due to AO?

Berta, I just posted this to show, what they can do, to mess with you. I must of done something to P--- Them off? HA!

They haven't responded yet, just , No service connection, I will see when the packet actually comes. I spoke with the 800 number and they didn't see a reason. I guess we will see what they say soon. Thanks.

" My C&P exam clearly shows Ischemia CAD. I had a Private Doc, do the Heart Cath with 4 blockages and it was spelled out very clearly. But it just amazes me , How they can violate the law, and there is no accountability."

 Were they aware of and did they request the private medical records with the diagnosis?

Did they list those records as evidence?

Can you scan and attach here their reasons and basis for the  denial (Cover C file # prior to scanning it)?

This sounds like a violation of my favorite reg- 38 CFR 4.6 and if it is You have a Valid basis for a CUE claim.

"How they can violate the law, and there is no accountability." Because not all claimants know the law enough to fight back.

This is obviously a Nehmer claim. 

I hope your RO isnt Buffalo. Those dopes actually denied my dead AO Vietnam husband's IHD accrued claim, saying he did not have IHD in his SMRs.( USMC 64-68)

Hell  probably none of you guys in Vietnam had anything symptomatic IHD then....many of you were still teenagers. They reversed and awarded...at the Nehmer Phila VARO.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
