@  Notorious Kelly : (26 August 2014 - 03:12 PM) Ebenefits Is Not A Thermometer In The Rectum Of Your Claim; It Is A Post-It Note That May Or Not Be Updated Or Accurate. Try Not To Obsess ;)

@  GlassRose1500 : (25 August 2014 - 09:30 PM) @coriemboh I Get My Best Claim Advice Here, But My Dav Guy Gets The Best Intel Once The Claim Is Filed
@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) The Average Processing Time Is 9 Months More Or Less. Every Time I Call The 800#, I Get A Different Answer. Goe, Roe....make Up Your Mind!

@  vet201060 : (25 August 2014 - 10:12 AM) Just Checked Ebenefits And Claim Was Pending Decision Approval And Then Checked Few Minutes After That And Now Prep For Decision. Drives Me Crazy

Burning Some Bridges, However, Doing What Needs To Be Done

Posted by arng11 in arng11's Blog, 21 April 2014 · 926 views

I have often said, much like the saying goes, either people are with you or against you or just idly stand by and do nothing.
 
I've learned that if you want to be successfull you surround yourself with successful people.  If you want to feel like you are loved then surround yourself around people that love. If you want to be protected surround...

" What Did You Do In The War?"

Posted by Commander Bob in Cmdr. Bob's Blog, 01 December 2013 · 2139 views

" What Did You Do In The War?" Like many combat soldiers, I either said nothing or briefly told family and friends the canned details of my war experiences for over four decades.  
 
  For those interested,  "I'll keep it short, sweet and to the point"...
 
One Sunday morning in February, 1968, when I was eighteen years old, and serving in a...

And So It Begins...

Posted by hedgey in hedgey's rambling!, 04 June 2012 · 1465 views

If I'm understanding this blog thing, this is an appropriate place for me to do my rambling and ranting, instead of in forum threads. This way, when I go off on tangents, I'm not derailing someone's thread and/or possibly getting someone's question waylaid and lost.

If I'm wrong about what this blog is for, someone tell...

Mystery Claim Shows Up After All Other Claims Were Complete

Posted by justrluk in justrluk's Blog, 04 June 2012 · 1970 views

It's 4 in the A.M. and I can't sleep. It's been 3 months since a claim with no contentions showed up on eBenefits. I still can't get anyone to tell me what it's for. I haven't claimed anything and thought my appeals might be reviewed once the last claim was complete, but now they have thrown a wrench in things. I thought all of this...

Hi Everyone,

My name is Michael and I'm 38 years old. I served in the Marine Corps from 91-95. I have lived a pretty happy life for the most part. In the more recent years my disabilities have become worse causing my pain to become severe and to the point of not being able to take it most days. I take a ton of medications including narcotics and...

Posted by JamesBreckenridge in JamesBreckenridge's Blog, 02 July 2010 · 1355 views

This is some interesting functionality that Tbird has added to the site. There are certainly some things that I would love to say about the claims process... from tips on how best to file your claim, to gripes about certain types of cases I get. None of those would be appropriate for the main forums. But I could turn those into blog entries here. Hrm....

Talkin' 'bout Politics

Posted by Bobby Slydell in In This Corner, 26 May 2009 · 1356 views

Everything is political in our country...probably everywhere there is a country. The VA is no different. Veterans and pundits and the occasional talking head are quick to tell us what this administration is doing for the VA and what that other administration didn't do for the VA. These guys are good, those guys are bad and it goes on ad...
