  • 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

Saint Pete Times

Recommended Posts

I wrote an editorial letter to the St. Pete Times that showed up in their editorial page today. The SP Times has really taken it to the VA in my region and exposed many scandals. The title of my letter is Dysfunctional VA. Now in the next few days many letters from VA employees will appear to rebut what I have said about the claims process and about how wonderful the VAMC is and the great care we get. I will probably get a visit from "Men in Black". Somebody has to tell the truth. The VSO's never say a damn thing against the VA or the quality of care we get. I will probably catch flak from the local DAV saying my letter is all wrong.

Hello John,

Thank you! St Petes employees commiting fraud should see some jail time if convicted.

Defrauding veterans out of their benefits during a time of war, may not be a good time to have a JURY trial in this country. Theres a good chance many will be a vet. But since they'er focused on their denial qoata's instead of an "honest" claims process. I say .....bad boys, bad boys, what you gonna do when they come for YOU!

John, I started my claim with the VA in St.Pete, The TIMES used to be a biased paper

The DAV in the Fed building downtown is the absolute worst group of reps I ever ran into. They consort,consult and conspire with the VA at the veterans Benefit. Mine had to go to the BVA to get my first award, No more AL DAV or others, I will do it myself from now on.

    • 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.

    • 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.
