Blue Water vets /survivors Action Needed

Question

image.thumb.png.c06a92fb7b876869a97633843982252d.png

 

"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!

Respectfully,
Jim Davis

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
