  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
