    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.
    • 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

yes Allan if the servicemember served during a period of war if the service was in peacetime they are out of luck most people call it the "war widows pension" I do appreciate that link for the 1994 Rockefeller report it helped me smack down that stupid shrink from Edgewood that was telling people that the CIA didn't have anythjing to do with the LSD experiments and that report in section F shows it plainly did thanks Mike

"war widows pension"

Yes, thats it Mike.

They used many of us like lab rats during Vietnam. In my opinion, they havn't stopped their practices either.

TBI's, MS & neurological disorders of so called,"unknown" causes due to enviromental factors? My guess is, not all TBI's coming out of IRAQ, is due to IED's.

Talking to health care staff about SHAD is like trying to get the truth out of the Bush administration. Nobody knows anything, & if they do, they ain't talking about it.

It's good to know you found some answers to the puzzle & hope it helps you.

Allan I was not used in the SHAD experiments I was used in the porgram that used mustard agents, Sarin, LSD, peyote, scopolomine 254 different substances in all the program went from 1955 thru 1975 and was run by DOD/CIA/Army it was stopped in 1975 after the DA IG report of 1975 on human experimentation was released.

Dr Sidney Gottlieb and it gets worse the deeper you look into it
