Our wonderful member Carlie is deceased.

Perhaps the BVA ombudsman could give you some idea of what dockets they are working on now.


The regulations are here under a search for Advancement on the Docket,if the criteria applies to you, that is something to consider and to apply for.

My BVA case took many years...years in which I continuously sought evidence and I sent my evidence directly to the BVA.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

Carlie is truly missed.

USN, for you viewing enjoyment or not, pull up BVA Decisions for 16 & 2017. See what 2014 Docket numbers have been addressed. I doubt it will make you rest any easier, but then again just maybe.

Who's Reping you at the BVA, VSO, VA Claims Agent or Attorney? BVA Appeals, especially if complex, are not recommended as DIY Projects.

Sorry to hear about Carlie, it has been a while since I visited here.


I do not have any representation, and you would have thought the ALJ thought I was insane. She told me how complicated this was and at the end of the hearing when I said "seriously, this is not that complicated. I have the evidence to support my claims, it is in my file, the issues cause me disability, occurred in service or within the presumptive period, an overwhelming amount of evidence supports the benefit of the doubt rule as 1 VA doctor disagreed with what 12 other private,well known medical providers stated, and the only reason I was there is that the VARO tried to ignore and then find any reason to deny my claim, even screwing up my dates of service claiming I had 1 year of service when I had 23"

The ALJ, after that, did listen to what I said, and gave me quite a bit of latitude to blast the RO for failing to follow VCAA and screwing up the dates of service when my file has existed for 10 years with the VARO and they know what my dates of service are.


The Seattle RO has to be the worst in the nation. How do you take a Veteran with multiple awards, and change their dates of service by 22 years?????

@USNDW I think folks gave you some good places to start. I miss Carlie and think of her often as many on here do.

I am writing my memoirs and would love it if you could help a shipmate out and look at it.

I've had a few challenges, perhaps the same as you. I relate them here to demonstrate that we can learn, overcome, and find purpose in life.

The stories can be harrowing to read; they were challenging to live. Remember that each story taught me something I would need once I found my purpose, and my purpose was and is HadIt.com Veterans.

I feel your pain.  My appeal has been certified to the BVA, but it's still at the regional office. I have several questions about the BVA process.

1. When do you receive your docket number?

2. Will you be notified when your case arrives in Washington, D.C?

3.  If you have additional evidence, where do you send the information?

4. Does the BVA get a paper copy of your evidence or are they able to access e-benefits?

5. Will they contact you when your case is ready to go before a Judge?
