  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • 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

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.

Its a disgrace what some people will do for money.

I stopped give hand-outs to Homeless Veterans.

that stand on the street corner with a sign they hold up 

Homeless Veteran need food/money anything.

I use to give these guys 5/10 bucks when I seen them begging for food.

Until the News media did an undercover story on this particular  so called homeless veteran..

at the end of the day he would go home to a nice well built brick home in a respected neighbor hood and clean -him self up shaven and nice close nice car and the news media followed him  he would go to the casinos and stay all night gambling.. (he probably was not a Veteran?)

..I said to my self no more from me .Homeless Veterans are ignorant to the fact they can get help  most buy wine and booze that stand on the street corner  but they don't need to be homeless  they can seek help from the VA Them self ...even may file compensation claims  but they are just to Ignorant to do that.

People that exploit veterans directly or indirectly deserve harsh punishment.

P.S. I used to do a lot of forensic psych evaluations in North Carolina (criminal cases) so I'm pretty familiar with the judicial system there and how to obtain (publicly-available) information. The perp in this case, Daniel D. James was on the docket for 1 Apr 2019 as the article indicated. For these initial arraignment hearings there usually isn't much info, and that's true for his case. It does list his file number though, which makes it a little easier to research down the road when he finally agrees to a plea bargain (presumably - he'd be stupid to plead his case before a jury). He's charged with a felony, Obtaining Property Under False Pretense, and a misdemeanor, violating a solicitation ordinance. His file number is  19CR 204599. The Public Defender's office is representing him.

Here's a link to the docket printout: DISTRICT Court Calendar: 04/01/19, AM Session in court Room 0301 for DISTRICT_CRIMINAL_COURT_ (PDF) or text version. He is #15 on the docket.

The worst part of this?  People are reluctant to help "real" Veterans with "real" needs, because there are so many fakes and scammers.  Thanks, Tbird for the heads up, most of us know how to donate to Tbird who really has been helping Vets for 20 years.  

Its interesting you dont call yourself a "non profit" even tho me thinks that is pretty much how it is.  I completely undestand why you would not want to go to the trouble and expense of becoming a "non profit".  That would take time and money.  Its better just to pay the tax on it, if there is profit at the end of the year.  

For married Veterans filing jointly, we can earn up to 32,000 per year and still owe no federal income tax.   However, Veterans on TDIU should report "earned" income.  The IRS has specific rules on what is "earned" income and what is "investment" income.  

Fortunately the VA does not insist Vets be penniless in order to get compensation.  Veterans may well have done well in the past and set aside some of that money for retirement, and earn investment income.  Its even ok to take all or part of your VA retro check and invest it, and derive income from that.  As the saying goes, "Its your money..

invest it or squander it on what you want."

      If you spend any time reading VA case law you’ll come across the phrase less likely, more likely than not and so on. In the VA Clinicians Guide for Disability Examination it lays out how these are weighted.

      After a PTSD/Unspecific MDD Diagnose From the VA Dr's

      The gold standard for diagnosing PTSD is a structured clinical interview such as the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS-5). When necessary, the PCL-5 can be scored to provide a provisional PTSD DSM 5 diagnosis.

      Any clinical clinician such as MD ,Psychiatrist even a L.C.S.W. (Certified)can perform the Diagnostics Evaluation Employed by the the VA

      ...They just need to figure out your symptoms and put together a list of your symptom's that you possess or show from the evaluation...I am not 100% Sure just how they do this ?

      being I am not a Dr or clinical clinician 

      Once a Diagnoses of PTSD is given they try to set you up with a Therapist to help with your New dx And how to adjust or cope with the Anxiety and Depression the PTSD can cause.

        you learn the tools to cope with and depending how severe your symptoms are ? 

       They test /screen you with phychoeducational type therapy treatment usually at first.

       Warning  some of this therapy can be very rough on a Veteran  from holding on to guilt  from the trauma its self or you maybe in a  ''stuck point''from memories and guilt or from the stressor's or anything that reminds you of the trauma you endured.

      The therapy works  even if we think it don't,  I recommend Therapy for all PTSD Veterans  it could very well save your life once the correct therapy is in place and the Veteran makes all his Clinical Appointments.

      I still have Combat PTSD it probably will never be cured completely but we can learn the tools it takes to cope with this horrible diseases 

      even learning breathing techniques  Helps tremendously during a panic attact.

      I have guilt from the war in Vietnam  ( I ask my self what could I have done to make a better outcome/difference?..and also I am in what the therapist calls stuck points. working on that at present once a week for 90 minutes.  I am very fortunate to have the help the VA gives me and I am lucky I have not turned to alcohol or drugs to mask my problem.

      But I have put my family through a living hell with my angers of burst.and they all stood by me the whole time years and years of my family life was disrupted because of me and my children &spouse  never deserved it one bit.

      That's all I want to say about that.

      At least I am still around. and plan to be tell my old age dying day.
    • No timeframe gotta love that answer it’s even better when you ask 1800 people or call the board directly they’ll say you’ll know sooner then later. I had mine advanced and it was about 2 months later until I had the decision in my hand which seems forever but in the present system in 2016 lightning fast...
        • Thanks
    • I am serviced connected for ankylosing spondylitis back in 1985. I had a C&P exam on 7-7-19 since I am asking for an increase in my cervical, thoracic, and lumbosacral ratings. After speaking with the DAV to find out progress and info on my exam, the Rep. noted sort of what I expected. Radiculopathy was noted and ROM was 0-15 for cervical, and 0-25 for back. I am currently rated as Cervical 30%, Thoracic 10%, and Lumbosacral 40%. The main question that I have is relating to the thoracic 10% and lumbosacral 40%. I am confused on these two. Is Lumbosacral separate from the thoracic/others ? Since my back ROM is at 0-25, does this mean that my thoracic might increase from the 10% to a higher rating ? I am confused how they break down my ratings from cervical at 30%, Thoracic at 10%, and Lumbosacral at 40%. Also, with the radiculopathy, is this something that they will rate also ? I am currently at 90% total combined for all my disabilities. I hope this helps for someone to give me advice/answers.
