Nope, you are in the right place.

Oh, welcome aboard!

I believe Ray (JRE) receives his care through the VA. He may be able to help.

HUGS,

Mark

Hey,...

I get all my health care through the VA.  What do you need to know? I've been in the VA healthcare system since 1/1/10

Thanks Mark and Ray.

I've been using the VA since 1984.  Out of active duty 1987, filed claim and the VARO lost case and recently found it, partially adjudicated, but because I did not go to a C&P in NYC (I live in Arkansas) the  claim was never completed.  Anyway they found the 1995 case file 2 months ago.  It had already been adjudicated again in 2010, but not the HIV.  Now they are coming all the cases into one big appeal. The RO is doing all this on their own.  Thats 17+ years.   Does that sound correct to you or have you not been involved with disability through VA?

Thanks  Don
