Forgot your vet … should have seen it coming. Incompetence?!

Deal Score0

Well, I committed myself when I was 17, 0311 as the Marines and served two of the OIF, including the introduction of Operation Phantom Fury, Fallujah assault. I was released last June, the honorable discharge medical with VA rating of 60%. I was diagnosed with PTSD, among others. I was told that I would soon be my allowance (60 days) after having been acquitted, because I participated in a pilot program in Bethesda, and it was reported that all my papers VA, etc. .. had already been treated, because I had to deal with them 8 months before approval. I recently received a letter from VA stating that they pushed me to be too incompetent to manage their finances, they are kept until a decision could be made to pay me. It’s funny how my salary took place in June last year, but I could not get this letter until September 2 … The period between September 2 and the output has been difficult at best. I had to go to the Red Cross to aid twice in order to pay your rent, utilities, and groceries. Finally, the Red Cross said they could do for me and here it is October 7, and I just got the eviction notice stuck on my door. I really feel that if I fell to the ground face of the earth the day I was released, my wife left me when I was in hospital and I experienced it myself trying to scrape by. My initial decision was to go to school and collect my GI Bill benefits in Chapter 33, but the chance would it have on my laptop broke and I had no money to replace the dropout online. You may wonder why I did not find a job? Well I rented the house was cheap, but at least no public transport anywhere in 30 minutes and when my wife left, she took our car. It is of course more to this sob story to losing my house because the real reason for divorce, she moved and I can not pay their mortgage, my children live with him, because I have absolutely nothing to eat and places to distribute boxes of food were offering .. Anyway my real question is, how it is when I walked into my high and tight all the way from there then to thank me for my service. People stop me on the street to tell me how much they appreciate me. Not that I ask for out of hand, but how the VA to allow veterans to drop the radar? I called several times, not only am I not answer, I spoke to 15 different numbers to call. Guess what happens when I call these numbers? I still have a lot more people. They behave like there is a vast network of veterans to help, I really was like a typical VA, and she called for a chance to check on me and answer questions. Then one day I received a mass e-mail addressed to him in which he rose to a new career opportunity, but for someone to replace him. Someone yelled at me, they were my new “go to” person. And if I call now I get answering empty. I feel I can understand why so many veterans kill themselves. Perhaps some of this roundabout way of VA to save money? So if anyone knows a good number I can call someone? Someone who does it help me? What’s all over, I feel incompetent. I am so upset that I feel like im arrested. I use both a good under pressure. Now I can barely leave my house, Im so ashamed. So at least I can feel a little anonymous and keep some of my dignity. Oh one more thing, can anyone be aware of the foundation, which could give someone a horrible credit loan? Losing my house really bad any chance of a real bank to help me. Anyway, flames. I hope someone can aidata.Malruhn, although I understand your objective criticisms, it can be served in its 22 years of service were different from mine. I finished a fraction of my intense psychotherapy, and for many years to go. No not that I walk Mc.Donalds an hour, just something to remember. I did not go too much personal information, but can simply say that it’s not for me. To top it off, I had 0311 infantry Marine, I was a team leader, team leader and designated marksmen. I can not wait for things given to me. I expect things that were promised to me by the United States government and the Department of Veterans Affairs. I think it would be too much to ask, however, is looking for false promises fulfilled. Yes, you are entitled to an old sea dog, I just ignore the fact that I was screwed by DFAS and the VA and go to töökohta.Malruhn minimum wage, although I understand your objective criticism, perhaps being of its 22 years of service has been received differently than mine.

    Go immediately to your congressman/senator. I don’t know your whole story, but if you are being denied your benefits for undefined/irreconcilable issues, something needs to be done. Normally I would say sit at VA and refuse to leave until they fix it, but I have been trying to get VA to do something right since 2000. At one point they quit paying me because the Army pulled my TDRL, it took more than six months and a lucky phone call (actually got someone competent) to their 800 number to get that fixed. Keep calling and asking for supervisors. Everyone has a boss.
    I have been BS’d to death by some of the VFW types, too, but there may be some hope there, especially if they have an emphasis on the younger vets. Good luck.

    You need to actually walk in to your local VA offices and speak with somebody face-to-face. Phones are too easily ignored.

    My question to you, is, “What are you doing to help yourself?”

    From your description, you got discharged with 60% and you’ve been sitting back, waiting for help. When things got bad, you got on the phone and asked where your help was.

    What have you done to help yourself? Have you attempted to get work? McDonalds hires all the time. Sure, wages suck, but 40-hours per week there and 40-hours at Burger King will certainly pay rent and keep food on the table. As a military person, you SHOULD know that you do whatever is necessary to get the mission accomplished. It sounds like you have been waiting for the mission to be accomplished FOR you.

    Unless you live out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, there HAS to be a place that will hire you within walking distance. If you can’t walk there, then you have much more than a 60% disability.
