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.
