Re: Desert Storm Bar and Grille

Good mornin' all. The sweet and sour ... Got a decision from the VA regarding my claim ... a long list of issues were under appeal ... they granted service connection to all of them. Took a long time ... 14 years ... of arguing, fussing, fighting, documenting, challenging, etc. ... but at least it i...

Re: Blue Button Initiative

Its propaganda ... "See what we're doing" ... nothing but show. If they really wanted to give us full access to our medical records that should let us have access to all test, reports, dr's notes, restricted stuff, and all.

Re: Tell us how you really feel!

Out of touch ... should be Out of Office. The SOB hasn't ever served, but speaks badly of those who have. Pisses me off.

We don't need to send him to an FOB anywhere ... just make him walk through the worst part of DC without his bodyguards at night.

Re: Barrowed time

Service Officers are damn near essential ... but interview them, talk with them, evaluate them before you appoint them as your representative. Once you sign them up you are stuck with them for the duration of your claim. Personal experience ... I trusted a DAV National Service Officer to represent m...

Re: Barrowed time

Sounds like a handful ... you have the answers? Know what to do next? You got things under control?

I'm being serious ... don't let it get to ya ... work through it.

Re: Hot head

Trying to cope ... trying to make sense of a bad situation ... that's what makes it happen ... better humor than other alternatives.

Re: VA Care and Activity

The biggest bummer is that during the time that the PTSD symptoms are suppressed (by me or otherwise) much damage can be done to the family. I now face my family knowing that I created a lot of problems for them that they have to deal with.

Re: Gulf War Review

Re: Near Fratricide

Not working really well ... but it gives me the sense that I am fighting the good fight. I'd really like to be seen as cooperative, but then I was cooperative once and look where it got me.
