  • 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

Respond to the Va in 30 days


I received a letter in the mail from the Va stating that my claim is under review and that additional info will be needed in order to make a decision. I got out of the military on a Chapter 10 discharge. The Va is stating that no info can be found about my discharge anywhere. They’ve reached out to many different outlets and came up short with little to no information. The Chapter 10 was granted instead of going to a court martial. I’ve hired a lawyer to help me in this situation as far as clearing my name and helping my situation. I am confused and really need help.

Can you scan and attach here their letter so we can see what attempts they actually made to get your records?

Cover your C file , name, address etc prior to scanning it.

What attempts have you or your lawyer made to find those records?

Such as requesting them from NARA?

Or from any Command whose headquarters are on the Chapter 10 stuff?

I assume you do have your DD 214 and VA does as well......

Have you atempted to get the records via NARA:


Is your lawyer experienced in VA case law and Chapter 10 regulations?

Did any JAG represent you during this ordeal? If so do you have their name and have you googled them?

Have you attempted to cotact Command who signed your DD 214 to see where the records on the Chap 10 could be?

If VA said they might have been lost in the St Louis fire- that might be BS.

Yes ma’am. I have requested my records long before this letter had come but still no response. During my ordeal, I had an jag attorney, German attorney, and a civilian attorney tht I hired to come from california to represent me. I still to this day have the investigation from the germans, which ruled me out as a suspect, but once that happened, the military picked it up and still tried to charge me. I will scan the document and post it once I get home. The document states that the Va reached out to the Army Personnel Records, C.I.D., and the Germans but nothing came back about my Chapter 10 discharge.

I just recently got the letter, started researching lawyers and found one right outside of Fort Campbell who was an former prosecutor/jag lawyer in the service. So everything is happening really fast and I’m trying to cover as much as I can. When I got out my dd214 read General Under Honorable conditions, but got changed to OTH which would make me ineligible to receive benefits.

"When I got out my dd214 read General Under Honorable conditions, but got changed to OTH which would make me ineligible to receive benefits."

Say what? ......have you ever attemped to  file a DD 149 to get it 'corrected' ? Mention that to your lawyer-

unless there is more to it than some typo by some idiot-


In the part about the "Injustice" you can tell them what you told us here.

I am 99.9 sure that your lawyer already tried this route- but it pays to check everything.

Many Chap 10s are just crap stuff and would make the veteran still eligible for VA benefits.

Does either DD 214 have a code by the re enlistment thing?

    • 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.
