This could be a good thing. Our VA in Lincoln did this. The CBOC was on a beautiful campus but most of the buildings were like 80+ yrs old. Gorgeous gothic stone architecture for some of the main buildings, but the insides had been reno-d over the decades. They built a new CBOC up the street that includes veteran transitional housing, and its been modernized (proper power, water, HVAC,etc). Its not a bad place now that its been updated and everyone has more space.

I have mixed feelings about this.  On one hand, I certainly agree with broken soldier, many need updated.  

However, I remember the fiasco in Denver VAMC.  It was way, way over budget, and not completed timely.  


Maybe VA learned their lesson, I hope so.  However, I remain skeptical.  There is little doubt in my mind that contracts with the VA are based mostly on nepotism.  (Family and friends of VA high ups and politically well connected  get lucrative contracts at Veterans and taxpayers expense).

Well, how about that...

The Hampton VAMC is a beautiful site with waterfront, a truly peaceful and timeless place, and historic buildings that give you a sense of Navy history. From the park area of the waterfront walk it overlooks the Norfolk Navy base. I am truly saddened to see this go.

  • 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
