Jim,

Love the new site. Have talked with you on several occasions over the years. To the point, wondering if you have any advice to help get my "new" claims to a decision stage. I have appeals that are over 7 years old and of course nothing will be done with them until the new claims (which date back to July 2009) are finished.

Jim,

I am already 10% for Left foot plantar faciitis w/heel spur and was recently diagnosed with Right foot plantar faciitis w/heel spur...could you tell me if it is possible that I will be awarded an additional 10% for the Right foot problems or will they consider it Bilateral foot problems and just keep it at 10%?

Thanks for your continued help.

Jim,

My Mother is about to be a widow for the 3rd time. My Step-father Joe is terminally ill and my Mother is in need for assisted living. Joe served 2 gigs in the US Army from the years 1956-1960 and 1972-1976. I have been informed from the VAA that his service falls with in the gray areas that were not served during war time. Completely understood.

Jim,

I am writing on behalf of a fellow soldier and combat brother of my husband's. He is getting an apportionment taken out of his va disability check that is going to his ex wife in place of his child support but iowa will not recognize it as payment so iowa says he is not paying and back child support is piling up etc. I would love to talk more in depth about this if you are Interested because the research I have done states this can be a loophole in the system and I have contacted senators etc and they are interested but if I can't get this particular person on board with giving up his info how can we still help other vets this is happening to?

Jim,

My friend has been a patient at the VA hospital for almost a month now. She is very happy with the doc who is trying to save her leg after a nasty motorcycle wreck.

In all the time shes been on the ward, she's only met one other veteran with a medical issue. The rest on the ward were having tucks done. Tummy tucks, ARM tucks, leg tucks, etc.
