Click below for the PDF downloadable forms from VA that you may need: required as of 24 March 2015

Remember, regardless of what you download here, the new VBMS really wants to see the newer forms with the little boxes on them to capture the data more easily. Look at the VA Form 21-0958 facsimile and the small boxes. If you send anything new in from now on (after March 25th, 2015), you need to use the newest forms available or the VBMS will choke and puke on it.

    how you doing my brother. This is d y mean USMC I was looking for the website that I looked up claims in the past on. They were different dockets from all over the country of decisions that have already been rendered. How do I get back to that site. Thank you for the great work that you do

    I was infected in 1976 through air gun, or one of the two Gama Globin shots I had, or in 1978 when I had surgery in Seoul Korea. I have never sniffed cocaine through a straw, or anything else. No other risk factors apply. The bottom line is; the Army killed my liver, and now my liver is killing me. My claim is filed, the VFW is my advocate, and the United States Government needs to take responsibility. They are asking me to file medical evidence that is under their nose. The VA diagnosed me last year, they sent me for a biopsy, and my service medical records (requested over a year ago) have still not arrived. I hope someone will grow a conscience, and do what is right.
