  • 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

Question

Thanks to the gentlemen that put together (ladies too if they're behind the scenes) the podcast. 

I enjoy listening and find myself talking to the laptop while the forum that is broadcasting tries to deceiver each others words. 

I hope the host gets past his cough and is not in any pain. 

I will say, tonight we heard a lot of feedback/background noise and it sounded like someone was opening and closing lots of cabinets.  😎However, I know your time is valuable and wanted to say thanks for dedicating your spare time to helping us out here.

 

Take care!

 Podcast show on date  9-13-18

I understand what you mean, when I get on my lap top and listen to the show , I go into a quite room and plug in my ear phones  other wise I can't hear them,  just out of the lap top speaker.

I have a hard time hearing Dr Bash  his voice is just to light...I do wish they all would speak up or some what louder   not only for me  but I would think that 60% of veteran do have some type of hearing impairment and if they are listing to the show  the information they give out is crucial to helping them win their claims  so we need to hear what is being said.

 

I wish I could hear well enough to call in

I wanted to ask that Mr Bill Creager  about Veterans that have had their MOS change while in a combat zone...and were injured , but when they file their claim  the VA denies because they say the MOS was not on the DD 214  Just their original MOS....B/C some veterans in a combat zone has what is called a Temporary MOS and it was never recorded on to the DD 214..in other words without a document showing MOS was change  this puts a damper on the veterans claim..how would he prove his MOS was Temporary? as I refer to Vietnam Veterans.

Bill Creager, Jerald Cook , John Basser Alex Graham??

Also IF I heard Bill Creager correctly?

he mention on the hadit show last night 9/13/18 to jerel that veterans can use the DBQ and get any Dr to fill it out and they are suppose to use it?

I had understood we need to get a Dr to fill it out in the expertise of what your disability/condition is.?

But According to Bill  it can be Any Dr   that can fill out the DBQ.  IF I HERD HIM CORRECTLY SAY THAT???

For those that don't know Bill he is a retired senior Rater.

Good point, Buck. I had a secondary AFSC of 20350 for Interpreter (French) and it never showed up on my 214. Fortunately, my shot record had a stamp from the US Embassy in Vientiane Laos. That was my saving grace for proving where I was. 3 combat Vs sort of explain what I was doing, too.  

Looking forward to the show tonight. I'll try not to cough or open and close my cabinets. And, since I don't use the phrase "Ya know", we're safe on that one, too.

I thank John, Jerrell but mostly Theresa for this wonderful soapbox to talk from, sir. It's an awesome responsibility to represent a Vet. You put everything on the line for them. Nothing gives me more pleasure than shoving the judicial knife in hard to these chuckleheads. I call it ponydogging us. It's a dog and pony show and that's what they do. I just cut through all that ponydogging to the win. No reason to prolong the process.

    • 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.
