While preparing to withdraw my CUE Appeal motion in a valiant attempt to substitute a new one instead of waiting a million years for the BVA, I thought about what our illustrious new VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald said recently. “Got a problem? Call me”. He even handed out a valid phone number. The last time I pulled a stunt like that on April Fools Day, I used Tommy Two Tones seminal Jenny number -(800) 867-5309. Bob actually handed out his real one. Brave. Very brave.
So today, with nothing to lose and holding a weak pair of twos, I texted him. Being hamhanded and lacking thumbs, I promptly hit send before I was prepared to. This bifurcated the call and I had to start again. In spite of this, I got a response in record time inviting me to leave the info on his email. I hope he has an enormous inbox.
I sent him a small version of my woes and a prayer for relief. As most of you readers know, all I want is to complete my paltry claims so as to concentrate on yours, a new book and some quality time with the grandrugrats.
Here is the .pdf of my repair order proposed. Having a Record on Appeal at the CAVC is a nice orderly way to put it all at your fingertip and be able to access it at the drop of the hat. It may or may not speed things up. As I have said numerous times in the past, “Here. Allow me to jump off the cliff in the funny suit and see if it flies”.
Herewith, I jump into the new world of VA repairs.
You texted him! Bravo! clear and concise–for you– letters too….Love the fact that you not longer have to worry about retaliation. Seriously, writing to the overlords and saving up their replies (to share with journalists later) makes a lot of sense to me.
“just don’t call me surely” 🙂
He looks like a Romulan. Sharpen the ears a little bit.
Hey. He could be a dead ringer for Homer Simpson in my book. An attorney from BVA was on the phone to me @ 1031Hrs Local and wanted to understand it better. He offered me a job after five minutes.Will call back tomorrow w/ repair order.
ok…he looks like spock! 🙂
Take the job and find out where in the hell MY BVA decison is? 🙂
It’s really good to hear you got a quick response, and a BVA attorney called already; and will call back again today. I hope the momentum continues and soon you get complete closure to your twenty year saga. It paid off to call Bob. He reminds me of Howdy Doody.
What is Bob’s number? I want to complain about having to spend $12,000 on my teeth even though I should be able to get dental care at my VA hospital.
