  • 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

I sure am hoping that some of the disabilities being considered will be on the list-------hard to say---

HBP and Stroke, along with bladder cancer are being considered.......also Parkinsonian symptoms ( that are not actually diagnosed as Parkinsons) ...dont know what else is in the IOM report. If I have time I will try to find and post it here......

HBP would be BIG, and very costly for VA-but who cares on cost-----

If HBP becomes an AO presumptive, that alone is one of the most devastating disabilities that any incountry Vietnam vet could have...as it leads to stroke. I am asking my Prayer Warrior group at my church to pray for more AO presumptives. The VA might not even add anything...but HBP would be incredible and alter the lives of many Vietnam incountry veterans.

Any other new presumptives will help.

AO was a weapon of mass destruction that has caused catastrophic disability in many Vietnam vets.And many of them are already dead.

If this all leads to Nehmer # 4, there should  be  a provision for their survivors,  And hopefully a Footnote One scenario for any AO vet (dead or alive).

Could dementia potentially fall into this category?

Per this article-yes:

http://www.alz.org/dementia/parkinsons-disease-symptoms.asp

Since Parkinsons is already on the AO presumptive list, I guess they are looking further into pre -full blown Parkinsons symptoms.

I am hopeful because I have a family member who served in Vietnam for a year and is in early stages, despite it not running in the family.

    • 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.
