Berta

Question

Yow-they said it would not take too long, just the other day  and they were right- I was googling a BWN veteran's  ship for him, that was apparently not on the older list and it popped right up in the New List!  Good thing I checked it out He has an AO presumptive.

Richard - others commented on what might be best for you to do in the post saying we need more input here-

https://community.hadit.com/topic/76745-can-we-have-some-input-here/

They know more about the AMA new claims process  than I do-

It is all VERY time consuming and can control every minute of a claimant's time-but hard work pays off.

Before I do anything I will call the VA and see what they say my options are. I do not want to do anything that will hurt my EED. I will also put my ship’s logs in my appeal. My ship was within 12 nautical mile every month we were deployed.

The VA also needs to make up a list of ships that were in the territorial seas of Vietnam. Veterans who file new claims are going to have show their ship’s logs have them within 12 nautical miles.

I don't know if VA will update the July 2019 list here.

John Rossie, president of Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Association, contacted me for what work still needs to be done-He is preparing a statement that I will post here as to this issue -but also he has a list of 22  carriers whose logs show they were in the 12 mile limit----

The ship a deceased veteran, per a widow I asked to join here some time ago, re: the new AO situation ,is one of the carriers  JR found to be within the 12 mile limit.

I am trying to find any claim at BVA that was denied ( or awarded) in which the veteran was on a carrier, and whose logs might have caused an award or a remand or anything,  and will be searching all Carrier Association site as well-----just like the Haas Case.Also I am going to try to find Jonathan Haas, or his survivors as, like many if not most Blue Water Navy veterans, he ,like them, was  denied but now their earliest effective date should be when they first the initial presumptive  claim that was denied.

Also we are trying to develop  a media and web site roster, so that we can get the word out on HR 299 and Procopio, as BWN vets should file their claims ASAP to get into what could be an enormous claims queue, when the stay is lifted. VA does not really want BWN AO vets to know,yet, that they might be eligible for more comp under HR 299 and Procopio.

There is also a lot of inhouse BS going on at VA- nothing I am willing to post here-re: the AO issues. But thee law is the law. I just hope the regulations do not manipulate HR 299 to any veterans detriment.

JR, (John Rossie) and a handful of dedicated advocates got HR 299 passed ,via trips to Congress, DC, media and sheer persistence and that took many, many years and there is still more to be done.

The Nehmer Court Order protects the EED - as within Footnote One- searchable at hadit in this forum.

I will post any info I get as to the Stay, etc. here but there is far more BWN AO work to be done, which will take  my time away from hadit.

In my case the VA has denied my claim twice already this year. In my claim I cited Procopio and HR 299 and still they denied my claim. If I put in another claim and I will put my ship’s logs in it to show that we were within 12 nautical miles. With the stay on they still have time to deny me again this year. Whenever you cite Procopio case why would they deny? There is a lot I do not understand but to me the ruling in the Procopio case should be enough for the VA to approve my claim this year. My doctor at the VA said I was herbicide exposed Vietnam Veteran and things I get from VA said as much. It makes me wonder what it is going to take. We need more Veterans employed at the VA. The only thing I have about the VA and how it operates is ????????????????????????
