  • 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

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)

1-347-237-4819

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

PLEASE ASK THIS QUESTION FOR ME.

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-

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
