    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

Haven't Been Here In A Few Years

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My name is Glen I'm from South Carolina. I am a disabled vet @100% I worked my claim for almost 6 years with help from the internet. I came on this site about 5 years ago with questions and got some good answers. Some people said I was wasting my time but my stubberness and determanation finally paid off with help from my congressman state senator local senator in Columbia.

The best thing was when I put all this in the Lord's hands and we had people praying for us and it fnally came through on 12-19-05. It's took a year to get everything back to normal by getting everthing bsck on track. I am now involved in the American Legion And our county DAV chapter. I'm the service officer for our DAV chapter and I'm helping veterans with claims. So don't give up hang in there and don't give up. By the way I got Pres. George Bush in on this I've got his reply letter in my file. It Worked.

Hope everyone has a great New Year and God Bless.

Glen-Welcome back-----

It is a shame that you had to take these steps to get a proper award but for many of us- that is what it takes-

evidence is everything-but getting them to read it can become a battle-

Thanks for helping other vets. Your experience can encourage them to know that nothing is impossible and awards might take years but they can happen.

Glen:

Glad that you are back. I really don't see many here as discouraging a Veteran but I am glad that you won your claim. Also glad to hear that President Bush helped I really don't have much use for the man myself.

Thanks for your comments. I don't approve of Bush getting us into the mess we are in and the negetive comments I got about my claim did not come from anyone on the hadit website.

Thanks and have a great day. B)

    • 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.
