  • 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.

    • 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.
