Sorry bout not including the website but Agent Orange causes memory loss too!

Anyway, if you thought that was crude, wait until you see exactly what I DID attach this time.  dont pay much attention to the picture just enter the citation numbers into the database and read till yer lips grow together and your eyes fall out (dont bite your tounge)

Use this database:  http://www.index.va.gov/search/va/bva.html

If that don't work Google BVA citation number xxxxxxxx

You may have to insert a zero in front of some of them

The VA board have their own Dr. NO

Saw a board decision dated Jan. 2014 where the vet had two oncologist that said AO likly could have caused his SCC throat cancer. The VA had one oncologist that said it was smoking and drinking, guess which one the board went with. I'm waiting on my board appeal and it doesn't look good.

I had a VA Dr with a degree from the Phillipines that reviewed my records and never even seen me opine that mine was base of tongue.  And I had 5 reports from a board certified ENT that stated that mine was 161.0 Larnyx-glottis.  Guess whom the VA went with.

Four years ago in July, I had my left tonsil removed along with many lymph nodes because of squamous cell carcinoma. Thanks to many prayers and to God in Heaven, I am doing very well. Had my last check up on June 8th, 2006 and everything looks just fine. Four years and doing GREAT! I am now looking for any veterans out there that may have had the same kind of cancer and were in Vietnam and have applied for compensation benefits from the Veterans Affairs Department. I have just applied, but my Service Officer said that I should expect to be denied the first time and then we'll put in an apeal. Has any one else received benefits from the VA for tonsillar cancer? And if so, can you give me any advice that might help me. I'd really be thankfull for any information that would help me in dealing with the VA on this subject.

I was just denied for Squamas cell carcinoma and too was in Viet Nam (66-67).  Told not connected to Agent Orange.  I was wondering if you appealed?  Any help greatly appreciated.

Dusty,

As frustrated as I get, I totally agree that we cannot give up the fight for all of you who have this blasted cancer that the VA seems to think is non-related to AO.   What would they do if NONE of you had used "chew" or smoked??? They wouldn't have anything to fall back on.   Maybe we should all file law suits against the tobacco industry and then let's see how long it would take for them to turn on the VA to take care of their own.   Sounds like a brilliant idea to me.    I'm going to hit everyone I can think of and more with e-mails and letters and phone calls.  Wish I was rich enough to go to DC and face Congress one on one.    Yes, I am one ticked off wife of a Vietnam era Veteran and super proud of it.   Thank you all for your service #1, and thank you all for the feed back and encouragement you give me.   WELCOME HOME!!!!!   Hang in there.     Love and Hugs from Montana to you and yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Jacki

Hello.

I'm not giving up.  Got discouraged for you all (including my hubby Les), but today I just sent off e-mails to the DAV magazine, VietNow magazine, and several people who were part of an article on AO in the VVA news magazine....regarding how fed up I am at being ignored by the people we are supposed to be able to turn to for help in our Nation's Government.

Looking back at how I've been ignored and placated by Secretary Shinseki, Mrs. Bidin, Mrs. Obama and our Senator Tester, and the mess the VA is in right now, go figure.   Don't get me wrong, Senator Tester's staff are right there all the time to talk to me and smooth my feathers and fight for Les when it was needed to be done so he'd get his bottom plate after the VA pulled all of his bottom teeth in order to take out his lower left jaw.

Yep....I'm a little riled up right now.   Would love for all of you to read this.  You all mean sooooooo much to me and my fight is not just for Les, it is and will continue to be for every last one of you and those who may have already lost the ultimate fight for their families. 

Love and Huge, Huge Hugs to you and yours from Montana....

Jacki

Jacki,

I just read this morning that a new panel of Doctors will be doing a study on Agent Orange. Here is part of the article on a Military Board.

<This summer, a panel of independent scientists from the Institute of Medicine will try to determine whether those veterans could have been exposed to the toxins in defoliants, including Agent Orange, at a level that would be dangerous to their health. If the panel, which hosts the first of a series of closed meetings and public hearings on May 15, finds a link, the service members could be eligible for tax-free disability compensation. Their results will be given in the fall.>

Unfortunately, the article did not state where these hearings are being held or when.

My Best to You and Everyone Here
