  • 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

@chrisp4995 In my mind their is a simple answer to your question -

I respectfully submit, you may not like my answer..... not a lecture, just my opinion.... Veteran to Veteran

1. Link for Texas guidelines to service animals: https://gov.texas.gov/organization/disabilities/assistance_animals

    Read for yourself the criteria and guidelines. - I suspect if this is a non-profit - they may have the RIGHT - to not allow you to stay - I would read the paperwork you signed upon entrance. 

2. If you are in a sober living situation and not in stable housing - and asking questions about other programs for your well being and mental health, the last thing you should consider is diverting your attention to a lawsuit. Not only could it take years - it will take your resources.

These  lawsuits appear on your background as people consider you for other things like jobs and housing. ( my degree is in Criminology - just attended an at risk housing seminar)

3. Stability in mental health is primary.  Military City, USA - VA has the BEST - Mental Health  / Homeless  programs research- google online 

I read you are in Texas - just in San Antonio alone is more than 135 Non-profit Veteran programs. .... seek out other local  resources. Substance abuse and housing options.

Im not sure what you plan on suing them for.  Not allowing your dog?  Lots of places dont allow dogs.  

Are you suing them for kicking you out because you relapsed?  

I will tell you what a lawyer told me once.  

Quote

THE Law isnt going to solve all your problems.  

I dont think it will solve this one either.  Landlords choose whether or not to allow dogs.  And they can choose NOT to allow "a particular" dog.  For example, some places wont allow Pit Bulls.  If your dog is a problem (and Im not saying he is), then your landlord can evict him..and you.  Or, he could just raise your rent.  

You need to focus on getting yourself well, and going out and suing someone probably wont accomplish that for you.  

I would advise you to forget about lawsuits.  Focus instead, on more positive aspects.  Get a new hobby.  Make friends.  Go fishing.  Play chess.  Love deeper.  Go to church.  

I think you will spend a bunch of negative energy.  

In church, just yesterday, our pastor said we should "Learn to be content".  

He also suggested we "do the thing(s) right now that show the most love".  Of course, when I point the finger at you, 4 of those fingers point right back at me, so this advice is especially for me.  

I havent gotten justice in a court yet, except for Veterans benefits.  Its up to you.  

Yea, its a good thing to love your dog.  

Years ago, on a Twilight zone episode, and old man died when he and his dog went coon hunting and they fell into a pond.  

The person at the gate told him his dog wasnt allowed in heaven.  He said, then he didnt think he wanted to go then.  

It turned out to be the right decision, because the devil was tricking him, and it wasnt heaven at all.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear

    • 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.
