    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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

Where is justice? Notice of Judgment Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals


ArNG11

Question

When will justice scream it's name.  All this time I thought “WE” actually had a fair chance, that maybe, the law would correct and hold KBR ect., accountable for their part in the Gulf War illnesses.  No such luck.  The Court of Appeals in their grand wisdom affirmed  and vacated the previous decision and the case will not be heard any longer. Still trying to get the details from the attorney but this is a bit heartbreaking.  What the hell is wrong with the courts.  Ten years in the appeals process and sadly it appears as justice will not be served this time.  FUBAR ‘ed decision.

 It saddens me.  At least Oregon is having a nice hot day and I was relaxed in the pool before reading the decision notification.   I’m gonna take my medicinal meds and enjoy what I have. 

I will still stand by what I write, “fight, fight till your last breath”.

I still haven't received the information from the firm that represented me.  The affirmed and vacated parts of the decision is what I am interested in.  

This is part of the correspondence that I received.  I do not believe it is the same appeal.  This is the case regarding KBR. 

Below is the statement I received from them..  

We are disappointed to report that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals refuses to overturn Judge Titus' dismissal. A copy of the Order is attached. This likely marks the sad end of our ten year battle for all of you, as the Supreme Court is not required to hear the case, and likely will not. The only remaining battleground for justice is Congress, which hopefully will set things right.

Good to hear from you as well my friend.   Um my VA claim is with the BVA Judge last time I checked.   I don't think that this law suit is related to mine and is all together a different case.
