What I Want to Do:


 
My Passions and Interests.
I have a passion to help all Veteans that are fighting claims if you can think of anyway that i may be of help to you please contact me I was with 1st Mar Div  B.Co 1st Shore Party Bn Amhoa Vietnam. the operations that i was on include; Taylor Common, Muskeegee Meadow, Pipestone Canyon, Forsyth Grove and Durham Peak I also remember and operation called Meade River This operation i wasn't given credit for.
One of My main fight right at this time is for the Veterans          affairs to give me what is due me a good rating 100% total   and permenent. I have not been able to work since 1991        and I didn't know i had service connected disabilities until  the year 2001 when i found out i had a bad case of what is   called post trumatic stress disorder. I attended my first       class on helping to cope with PTSD I enrolled in the class    on September 11,2001 I recieved a rating  of 10%  I immediately filed a  notice of disagreement and a few months later they found    out that I had type two diabeties, they then gave me  rating  of 30% Ptsd and 20% on the diabties and when they totaled that up i had a 40% disability i again filed a notice of         disagreement but i really filed an appeal that was in 2002   I have heard nothing for that appeal yet.Then I asked to     withdraw my case from appeals and bring it to the local       rating board this was after i had attended 3-3week classes and then took one 71/2 week class which i was paid for that hospital stay i got two month of 100% after this i went        down to Florida and have been to two intense classes for      PTSD the class i last went to i had become suicidal and my   score drop drastically i have yet to be paid for those two    stays which was 71/2 weeks also. When I applied for the     payments they told me they would include those payments in with the decision the make on this new claim i made They      had never withdrew my claim from appeals so now i'm          waiting on to claims to get back the newest i opened in         october of 2005 and the other claim that is in appeals has   been there since somtime in 2002. And they say they are     processing claims faster give me a break. It seem to me       they are waitng for me to get deathly sick or die and this is not just my feelings it is the feelings of many thousands  of    veterans. I'm 58 yrs old and i have a few health issues        going on  I hope that I can out last them. Now enough of the bs it just makes me angerer to talk about it.                       Some of my interests include Computers, Music,Bowling and spectator sports such as nascar racing and Football, also    
the olympics winter and summer. I love most all reality         shows some favorites of mine are American Idol, The          Biggest Loser, Dancing with the Stars, so you think you       can   dance, and Skating with the Stars also I like the         Nanny. I hope to one day to be able to live comfortably I     hope it is just around the corner.  I also like to help the       elderly and the Battered women, also Orphaned                   Children. I would like to one day adopt a child and give it    the love it didn't get from its                                             family

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy To see world wide peace no more wars counrties getting along with each other ad having a cleaner world to live in. I beleive that we will see Changes in how our goverment works By taking care of there own people first the helping other countries after the usa is taken care of this means change the VA system by stepping up the Claims process,and health care for all citizens no matter what
What Gives Me Hope One of the most important things that would give me hope would be to Get a higher rating back from the court of appeals in Washington D.C.
i have been working on it this time since august 05. Another thing that gives me hope is knowing that God and my family loves me.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by IF I were president of the USA I would tell congress and anybody else that we need to start taking care of our own people first than if we have funds left over we could help other countries. Who is going to be there for us if there were to be a natural disaster want my opinion Probably no one. We need to Stop sending our money overseas to help some other country out that does'nt even give a hoot about the United States. We need to take a look at americans before we offer to do anything for anybody else.We do not care about our homeless if we did there would be none. We need to take a look at our medical needs the peo[ple that do not have insurance do not even see a doctor if they go to the emergency room of a hospital they have to wait several hour to be seen unless of course if your dying then they will take you in and leave you sitting in a room for several hours. I think we need a system like canada has where everyone has health care. When our young men went to war to protect your people in the USA they laid there life on the line and before Iraq we were told that if anything happened to us that the goverment would see to it that we were taken care of well I just so happen to know they have not kept there word. My Question is why do us veterans have to fight so hard to get anything from the Va they look at us like we are taking thisout of there salary. man get real. I have some health problems and i have a phycological problem as well and what do i get for having these problems stared at like i'm some kind of idiot. i get a check for 40% and have been 40% since about 2002. i have gotten worse not better there are things that are gouing on with me that i haven't told them because most of the people that work for the Va are there to keep you from getting an increase.
What/who changed my life and why the incident that happened September 11,2001 it put more fear in me than I previously had,increased my level of what is called PTSD-Post tumatic stress disorder. It put the fear in me that there was going to be a war on our homefront.
