Almost forgot to put this one up. Jerrel and John invited me to do a show last week but I made the mistake of going to Butch Long’s C&P exams. They are at QTC which is a …doctor’s office… where diseases grow. Having a compromised immune system courtesy of AO and hepatitis c, I quickly found myself the proud owner of a fever and a sore throat. Having conquered that, I’m back.
Today we are going to take 38 USC §1114/ 38 CFR §3.350 apart with a razor blade and examine it minutely. Feel free to call in and interrupt me in mid-sentence. I continually hear misinterpretations of the regulation/statute and I worry too many of you may be harmed.
Considering VA hides this in the same back room where they keep the Independent Living Program, it needs a big dose of sunshine to inform you of what it really says. So join me in an hour and seven minutes at:
Check this one out-SMC S and the 5- year protection rule. VSO and Vet sit around and do nothing. Rating is reduced. They take it away just before it’s protected and then give it back starting the 5-year clock over. Nonadversarial VA ratings practices. Plenty of time for reductions while the backlog for DRO reviews grows like a metastasizing cancer.
Or this one. DAV jumps in and demands SMC L -up from S +K for just one foot owie. Ain’t gonna happen. Two feet or no dice. DAV tries to use blind + one foot. Ahhh, excusez-moi, he passed the eye chart test….
Don’t make these mistakes.
Here’s the link to Hadit’s blog radio:
Click on the November 4th, 2015 7;00 PM Blogcast. You’ll enjoy it like A Prairie Home Companion. Jerrel discusses his ILP need for a safe room due to his post-tornado stress syndrome. John is in the hunt for some goodies too. And yes, we did touch on SMC eventually. I think you’ll be entertained and even learn something.
