    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?”

  • 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

Project Shad/edgewood Vet



The first 1/4 2007 BVA cases are now on line.


"Per the claims folder, the DoD, along with the VA and the

National Academy of Sciences, contacted the veteran

concerning these experiments. Specifically, the Department

of the Army's Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense

wrote the veteran a letter, dated May 8, 2002, that confirmed

the veteran's assertions that he was exposed to VX along with

other chemicals was stationed at Edgewood Arsenal"


"Since the veteran's direct

participation in Project 112 testing has been established,

and in light of this directive from VHA, the present case is

remanded to provide this veteran with a complete Project 112


One thing- it seems the VA has yet to even give this vet a C & P-

another thing-

can someone expalin to me how a vet could have been affected by SHAD as well as the Edgewood situation?

The BVA cases clearly states the vet was Army stationed at Edgewood and his exposure to chemicals such as VX has been confirmed.

I understood that VA and the Project Shad vets were mainly Navy personnel and this is why the ships lists etc was published.

Is the VA here saying that Shad experiments encompass Edgewood too?

I understood that although the VA identified 4300 potential SHAD vets, only a little over 600 have been found.Last I heard they were all sailors.

SHAD- Shipboard Hazard and Defense.

Is the BVA suggesting in this remand that Edgewood Army vets and Project Shad Navy vets were all exposed to the same thing? And there is a direct connection?
