Blue Water vets /survivors Action Needed




"After several years of fighting, Blue Water Navy Veterans are still on the fight to get benefits and medical care.

Looks like Senator Enzi and Senator Lee are still fighting due to "costs" and neither seem to fully understand that if you can send people off to war, you better damn sure be able to fulfill your promises to care for them when they come home.

There is still hope, but we need your help and we need it now!

We need for everyone to please call Senator Mitch McConnell, even if you're not is constituent and ask that he please bring HR 299 to the floor for a vote. His Washington DC office number is 202-224-2541.

Then call Senator Mike Lee in his DC office at 202-224-5444 and ask that he kindly change his position on the bill and vote for the bill to pass.

Then if you would also please make time to call all of the following people and ask if they would please vote yes on HR 299 when it comes to the floor would help a great deal!

Senator Isakson 202-224-3643 & 770-661-0999
Senator Moran 202-224-6521
Senator Boozman 202-224-4843
Senator Rounds 202-224-5842
Senator Sullivan 202-224-3004
Senator Tillis 202-224-6342
Senator Cassidy 202-224-5824
Senator Heller 202-224-6244
Senator Tester 202-224-2644
Senator Brown 202-224-2315
Senator Sanders 202-224-5141
Senator Blumenthal 202-224-2823
Senator Murray 202-224-2621
Senator Hirono 202-224-2621


Senator Manchin 202-224-3954

Your calls are very important to thousands of Veterans, and we're asking you to make the calls immediately, then if you would, please call them every Friday, slow down their office, drive a point home that this bill must pass and quickly.


Just keep it simple, polite, and when you end your call, be sure to thank them for their time!

If you are experiencing difficulty with your GI Benefits, we'd seriously like to hear from you, tell us your story, and rest assured your contact information, name, anything that specifically identifies you will be redacted when we're contacting the White House, Congress and the VA Administration to help get this resolved and quickly.

On behalf of our Volunteers nationwide and myself, we wish you and your family good health and a safe and Merry Christmas!

Jim Davis

    • 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.
