This site needs a page to try and put forth sensible questions to allow them to form their own decision based on what facts are available

May God guide us and help us help others even when we do not feel like it.

Unfortunately another case of the Dept of Veterans \Affairs trying to play one group of combat vets against another.
Just like they did the Viet Nam vets against Korea, WWII and any others that were still alive.

God, please hear our prayers and bring this country back to somewhat of a sensible action. It is no longer whether you are a vet or not. It is a case of whether you are Democrat or Republican. And it does not matter whether it stands for us supporting our country anymore. It now is what party do you belong to. Your action in Combat no longer matters to the powers to be. Whether in the Dept of Veterans Affairs or in Congress. It no longer matters that you fought for this country as an American. It seems to be politically correct that you are Democrat or Republican only.

May this make more sense to all that read it, and it still the same as what we couldn't understand.

Many Thanks to Jim Davis/ Veterans for Change newsletter.         For the following info and links. Thanks Jim.      Webmaster/VETSHELP!

NEW AGENT ORANGE rule   Applies to 86,000 vets                                                                                                              In calculating VA costs from this change, VA assumes that 80 percent of the eligible population will apply for benefits and 100 percent of those who do will be approved. But eligible vets and survivors must file claims to get paid; nothing will happen automatically. To file claims on line visit: http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp. Veterans without a computer
can call a toll-free helpline at (800) 749-8387.

VA maintains a directory of veterans' service organizations with trained staff to help in filing claims. The Web site:
http://www1.va.gov/vso/. Many state, county and local governments also have personnel to help. Find information on these agencies at: http://www.va.gov/statedva.htm.

VA also expects many ineligible veterans to file claims. They will be found ineligible because they can't show they ever set foot in
Vietnam though they suffer from one of the qualifying diseases. Many claims will be filed by veterans with hypertension but those will be rejected because that condition is not a "heart disease" under the VA draft regulation.

REPORT STOLEN VALOR

A violation of the Stolen Valor Act of 2005 is a federal misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $150,000 fine. Concerned citizens may report suspected cases of Stolen Valor to their local FBI field office and the U. S. Department of Justice U.S. Attorney's Office.


The VA Office of Inspector General vigorously investigates cases of fraud perpetrated against VA and operates a hotline for the public to confidentially and safely report crimes like Stolen Valor involving VA or its programs:

CALL: 800-488-8244
 FAX: 202-565-7936
 E-mail:
vaoighotline@va.gov

Write to:
VA OIG HOTLINE
PO Box 50410
Washington,DC 20091-0410

When Stolen Valor involves members of the military, the individual suspected of committing the fraud can be reported directly to DOD law enforcement.

To those who have been looking for these articles now have access to them thanks to Jim Davis.

New Findings on Head Injuries

Researchers with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University School of Medicine have provided the first pathological evidence of a link between repeated head injuries and a disease (chronic traumatic Encephalomyopathy) that resembles amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The results will appear in the September issue of the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology.
May this information allow you to make the best decision on the available facts
