Updates BWN AO and potential more presumptives



"A recent ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims could accelerate adjudication of thousands of veterans' disability claims appeals, but only for cases awaiting certification from the VA. [more]"


Some cases at the BVA have already been granted.

The fact that some BWN vets on appeal ,have found a large payment in their checking accounts recently from the VA ,tells me the payments are getting out faster than the award letters.

This is not unusual,  many of my awards came with a payment first and then the award letter arrived. 

I think the  BWN vets who have already been awarded under Nehmer are Footnote One vets....meaning they had a AO disability rated and deemed NSC in a past VA decision that denied for AO disability because they had no boots on ground until HR 299 and Procopio!!!!!!

BVA pulled those claims and awarded them on an "accelerated " basis!

I have about 20 more to read at the BVA.


Also many of you might know of the AO Presumptive situation- Former Sec Shulkin wanted to three more to the presumptive list.

I sent Secretary Wilke what I felt was a good argument to include Hypertention to that list as theirehas been a AO HBP award already due to AO exposure.Maybe more, I will check.

I filed a claim already due to AO HBP contributing to my husband's death ( it is also an accrued claim.)

I used the same evidence the BVA did , the NAP report and also I had, like he did, an IMO (mine is  from the VA itself).

The status of that is this:


My letter to Wilkie ,after a few months went to my RO, and it appeared they held back that claim, due to the letter- however I filed it again on the news forms.

I have the emails they ,in the Mil.com link, are talking about and I knew someone (non VA)was putting the screws on these potential new presumptives....

Still =if any Vietnam incountry veteran  or Blue Water Navy vet who served in the 12 mile limit-does have any of those Possible new presumptives  to include hypertension, they should claim them,due to AO along with any other established presumptives they have.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
