Burn Pits- Brain Cancer-Joe Biden's son

Question

https://www.disabledveterans.org/2018/01/11/duh-biden-finally-links-burn-pit-brain-cancer-sons-death/?inf_contact_key=38fe45a4770396212ee7dc435b330a243c986b56775dfe0f866944ea5de2c33a

 

Ben Krause's remarks are right on point.

Maybe this will impede some new regs on burn pits.......if vets take up the charge.

Someone pointed out they should burn the human waste in Washington DC..and let the congress critters breathe it and we would have a "burn pit" ban in a week, as well as benefits for Veterans who had to breathe it.

Yeah! In vietnam they used to turn empty canisters into barbeque pits but some were turned into  "shitters" and then they would burn those contents off...Some of the canisters were empty AO barrels- what a toxic situation that was.

This is one of a few successful burn pit claims.

I found the award interesting as to the last part regarding the vestibular disorder, due to TBI ,too.

So I have question regarding this, I was stationed in camp bastion and camp dwyer in southern afghanistan and both had burn pits up wind from our tents. While at the time this just seemed ridiculous but having seen the page for it on ebenefits I'm assuming this has become a real issue. My question is I recently recieved a BVA decision and am currently waiting on an award letter from my RO, Should I wait to file for the burn pit thing on ebenefits?

Lance...

    Please post your question, (a good one, by the way) in a "new" post.  You will get more people to read it, and get better answers, AND everyone will be less confused as this particular post was started by Berta, and we call that "hijacking the post".  It confuses all.  

     Since you are new, I will mention it, and, even answer your question THIS ONE TIME.  Next time, start a new post and dont ask your question (unrelated to the original poster) in Berta's or other peoples post.  Berta deserves our full attention to her post, so do you.   Here is my answer:

     Dont wait, unless you have more money than you know what to do with.  Let's hypothetically say your "burn pit" claim has resulted in disabilites that equal 100 percent. (I dont know this, I have no idea what your rating will be as I dont know any of your symptoms.)

     So, if you wait 1 month to apply, and its 100 percent, that will cost you about $2973 plus dependendents.  How many months of 100 percent can you afford to lose, that is, how many $2973 checks do you plan on donating to the department of Veterans Affairs?  

     For me, the answer is "0", so I would apply now.  If you were the lucky 418 million dollar lottery winner, then you probably should forget about applying altogether.

    • 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.
