  • 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

Fayetteville -like a "national Emergency"per VA

Recommended Posts


The call numbers are now working. 1-866-388-5428   or 1-479-582-7995- and they have gotten many calls already.

Any veteran or survivor of a veteran who gets this letter from VA


needs to get a complete copy of their medical records, if they dont already have a copy-

The VAMC in Arkansas should have a Records Access Officer with a short form you can use-


Survivors- I forgot what I needed to prove I was the survivor of my husband to get his records, maybe just the death certificate.

Well, let me get this straight.  At least 20 Vets, per day, die to their own hand, in no small part because of VA's inability/unwillingness to care for them.  Or, they "care for them" in appeals 10 years after they need help.  

And many Veterans died "waiting on appointments", where VA began the Veterans choice program which works about as inefficiently as before.  

So, now all the sudden, we have a "national emergency" because an (impaired) doc apparently misdiagnosed patients.  

Where was the "national emergency" when last year's 7300 Veterans died (20 Vets per day times 365 days per year)  and the 36,500 Vets that died 5 years before that?  

If congress critters were paid with the speed that Vets compensation is paid, congress would walk off the job.

The Fayetteville new call center had over 1,000 calls before noon today from vets who got the letter.


"U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman's office told 40/29 the VA informed Westerman that somebody from his district died as a result of the problem.
Arkansas' 4th Congressional District covers parts of Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley, as well as parts of southern Arkansas. Westerman's office told 40/29 that federal privacy laws prevented them from getting more information about the case"
I bet it was our member Mike Sasser (dod July 2, 2015)

Again I wonder why a thorough background check was not administered.

That's outrageous. Quality assurance is obviously lacking and our fellow veterans are paying for it.

Something like this should be referred for criminal prosecution, in my opinion.

    • 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.
