BVA HEARINGS INFO-TRAVEL BOARD AND VIDEO

I received a NOVA update on how the Appeals backlog at the Board is faring. I’d give it (progress) a so-so on a scale of 1-10. Corovirus 20 aside, it seems the pesky backlog of Legacy Appeals continues to fester. … Continue reading

THE ZEROES FOR HEROES CLUB

Shut the front door. I thought I’d seen everything up to now. I’ve repped a 94 year old Marine and got him 100% for Bent Brain. I’ve done R2s and §1151s but this one is a daisy. Johnny Vet’s wife … Continue reading

FORT FUMBLE SEATTLE–I HOPE YOU HAD THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE

Today marks the first time I’ve woken up to a yellowish, smoky overcast with no sun since Vietnam. It finally made an anemic showing this PM. The only thing missing was the oily petroleum-like aroma of burnt nape, CS and … Continue reading

DISGRUNTLED GASLIGHTER/TROLL

Just as the title suggests, every once in a while I get deep-diggers who must sow discord where there is none. Much like an indigestible meal, it causes discomfort that can only be alleviated by visiting it upon others. An … Continue reading

BLOG TALK RADIO THURSDAY 8/13/2020

Once again, I don’t get no respect. Jerrell called to say they had a cancellation and would I be available? Well, sure. Anytime I get to bloviate and expound on VA law for an hour in front of a microphone, … Continue reading
