  • 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

Trying to locate documents

Question

I was going through an assessment to be in a special operations unit. During the training we had a mock POW training which later went under investigation. I did not press charges at the time. Myself and classmates were all questioned and it was heavily documented including the training being video taped. I would like to get these documents. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not enough info---have you used FOIA?

https://www.foia.gov/how-to.html

I have used FOIA many times and have the signature of Ken Starr ( Lewinski-Clinton mess) on many appeals.

One request took about 5 years to get the info- others reaped the info I wanted in mere weeks.

You need to write to the "agency" or government depart that you believe holds the info you request.

Be specific that you want a copy of the video as well as copies of any documentation and be sure to set a fee you are willing to spend up to-----if the forms ask for that. Be as detailed as you can be as to naming names and dates

I asked DOL for some sensitive info and told them I would spend up to 200 dollars for it, but to let me know if it would cost more than that.

I stated the info was in the interest of the public and they sent me a large envelope of info and I don't think they actually charged me at all.

The DOL made a tremendous error and I got MUCH MORE than I bargained for.It helped me succeed on 2 of my dead husband's claims. Very sensitive stuff.They threatened me with a US Marshall coming to get the packet within 24 hours.I missed a bunch of yard sales waiting for the US Marshall as I had made copies of it all anyhow and didn't tell them that.

So I called the NY US Marshalls office in Rochester and learned that no one from DOL had ever requested a Marshall to come here.I missed those yard sales!!!!

VA, under FOIA once, revealed to me the entire employment applications of about 12 people,most all were already employed by VA,  with their SSNs and everything.

That info helped the VAMC director to act fast when I threatened to help my husband file a EEOC discrimination case against them.He was horrified to see what my FOIA got me.

My point is you might find out a lot more then you know---

you might be denied the info, but you can appeal.

FOIA is a powerful tool. Do you have contact info for anyone else in this training?

Was the investigation public knowledge?

You posted in the MST forum so I assume this is a MST issue for you- was it for any others as well?

Please go over FOIA link carefully as I assume you might need to direct it to DOD FOIA office.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
