I still have lots of hadit cards Tbird.

I don't do Facebook, but have passed them out many times, to church members, neighbors, and friends over the years. 

The local VA would not let me pass them out in the main lobby but that's OK- I passed them out, in other ways at the VAMC. 

Unfortunately many who ask me claims questions locally- do not use a PC and it is the greatest weapon we have, to succeed in our issues. Often they ask for someone else in their family, and that can become convoluted.

One member of my church had a relative wife of vet  in what they felt was a critical situation-( I did too) in a different state-and emailed th church member - and I gave them lots of info as to what they family needed to do as well as our web site addy and specific links and phone numbers  to the VAMC the vet needed to get to.

I don't do one to one,and could not contact her relative directly  but  this also involved the VA Chaplaincy in the other state's VAMC.

Much to my surprise the veteran joined us ( about 2 -3 years ago) thanking us for the info-although he didn't know where his wife got it from -( she got it and our web site link  from the church member) and he had enrolled into the VA in his state they were in and was getting very positive help for his PTSD.

Any outreach we can do can help so many-

I am a Gold Star Wife and they too need some help at their site getting the info they need.

The Information that they need is here - Many years ago they had a forum where I could put our web site addy but that has changed.

Anyone who comes to my home, knows right away,due to the framed service Recognitions from former Pres Clinton, and Pres. Reagan regarding my two deceased vet husbands. MY NVLSP Certificate , and AMU degree is next to them and of course, I have photos of my daughter in Uniform, all over the place!!! Plus many Flags in my PC room to include the flags of North and South Vietnam, and a beautiful shadow box display my daughter made about her dad and his medals,   photos, obit etc etc

Many times , even work men doing a job here, will mention their service or that of a family member or friend and I give them a Hadit card right away and  often a print out of our Home page too  and briefly show them what we do here.

We can pass the word in many ways.I make sure the hadit site cards are always in my purse.

 

If a vet or family member does not have a PC ,  then put the #s of the VAMC, which has a VVA rep, the NYSDIV of Vets Affairs which has a office at the local VAMC, and also the # for our county Veteran's Service Agency, on the back of the card, but also tell them maybe a family member could help them get on line here.

PS, if someone just has a cup of coffee  at a small table in my PC room-

next to some photos I took from  a helicopter, and an eagle, and always some flowers or a potted plant,  they usually noice my pineapple grenade , next to the phone on that table.

It is quite a conversation piece, and if they ask- 

'is that really a grenade'?

I reply ' yeah=

doesn't everybody have a grenade'  ??????😃

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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
