    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

Live 6PM / 7 PM EST-Blue Water Veterans Show continued

Recommended Posts

Please join us  and call in too!   John Rossie, John Basser, Jerrel Cook, (and I will be calling in as well)


The new pending House bill  can alter the lives of thousands of Blue Water Navy veterans and their dependents - if all goes well with it- ( HR 299)

It is to amend 38 USC with-hopefully-potential presumptive status for veterans "who served in the territorial seas of the Republic of Vietnam"

( HR 299  1116A)

I wish I could call in  but my hearing is so bad y'all probably run me off


I had a question for you Ms berta and john and jerrel

How can the VA Award a 10% S.C. Rating and declare VA Free dental to a veteran for the rest of his Life? IN HIS 10% AWARD LETTER???

 He is S.C. For nasal tissue tumors caused by a chemical substance while station In Japan and had nasal surgery while in Japan but needs more surgery to correct the problem from tumors from reappearing in his nasal cavity...

the Military has give him a Medical Discharge and he is back home in Texas..he went to the Dallas VAMC to request the surgery for these tumors and the VA TURNED Him away? (Not sure why)

& IF he has this surgery out side the VA can he request the VA Pay?

he really needs this surgery bad  he has a hard time breathing and has a tumor growing inside his mouth and in his nasal cavity  and its causing him problems eating and drinking, why the VA Turned him away is anyone's guess?

I am helping him reopen his claim under the 3.156 (c)and had him to request all his medical records from the Yokosuka   Military Hospital in Japan before we file for increase and possible secondary conditions  he is only 23 years old and a 4 YEAR Navy Veteran

Have any of you guys ever heard of a Veteran getting free dental care from the VA the rest of his life and just be 10% S.C.?

Thank you All Much Appreciated.

 Yes I realized the topic was BWN Issues  but I thought we could ask about any questions on the show? maybe not?

Yes as soon as I can get with him...I had him to request all his Records from NRPC AND  ALL HOSPITAL RECORDS FROM Yokosuka Navel Hospital.

I have a lot of question to ask him..so we need to agree on a place of meeting  or if he just wants to do this via emails and phone line.

I have limited Infor so for.

Buck- of course anyone can call in and ask questions on the show-

but we would probably have to ask them to ask the question here-with a lot more info on that award-

the Blue Water Issue has been going on for at least 10 years by now- and all of us here, advocating for veterans need to be on top of this issue...and of course the show timeframe is limited.

I foresee -hopefully-a new Nehmer situation coming from this legislation.

All of us should read HR 299 and listen to John Rossie's shows here on it-

    • 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.
