GaryJETBasicHere is what appears to be a straight forward jetgun decision. No prevarications. No hemming and hawing. No benefit of the doubt. Two doctors say it was jetguns and no one from VA stands up and says otherwise. This further vindicates my thesis that if you arrive with a pair, VA will probably fold. Here. they denied until the BVA reversed. And not only that, a veteran Veterans Law Judge was the one who did it. Shane Durkin was ricocheting around the BVA for decades as a staff attorney long before he became a VLJ. This is no flash in the pan.

P.S. Here’s another one. Again, no “resolving any benefit of the doubt in favor of the Vet” language. Just a simple ” It was the jetguns”.

    You know, that exact same picture of Tricia’s husband getting jetgun vaccines was used on a CDC conference that talked about jetguns getting contaminated and studies done in Brazil that showed jetguns got contaminated whether you used alcohol to wipe or not.

    In the first case (the widow) we should take note of the esophagus bleeding. Have most patients had an endoscopy to check for this?
    Once or every few years? I think even SVR patients will have to be vigilent about all gastrointestinal symptoms.
    Maybe we can get a useful list going here?
