Jim,

Questions: Once a C&P examination is order by the regional office Veteran Service Representative, can the examiner request information from the veteran's private doctor?  Is there an official form that a veteran uses to "refute" the report that a C&P sends back to the Regional Office Veteran Service Representative?

Jim,

I'm a reporter writing an article on a VN vet who claims multiple tours and multiple valor medals. Records from NARA obtained via FOIA indicate no VN service.  As well, his DD 214 is suspect. It would be very helpful to authenticate or disauthenticate it.  What agency, organization or person can you recommend?

Dear Jim,

How much can be garnished from a VA disability check in the state of Illinois for 4 children? Is it a percentage or just the amount the VA allocates for the children that is added to the check?  Thank you for your time!

Hi Jim,

 

Currently my husband is rated 40% disabled.  He has 10% for sinus, 20% for a back injury, and 10% for a seizure.

I was award 100% disability for CLL (Temporary) I am currently in the process of having to go through Chemo treatments. Since CLL is a cancer that never goes away (can be in remission) but still considered there, what in your opinion would be the chances of getting my rating changed to permanent? more...
