  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been around for Centuries
    and has been called by “Many Names”…
    FYI: There Is No Cure For PTSD…”NONE”…
    The BEST any Combat Veteran that Really is suffering from PTSD
    that is Receiving TRUE PTSD Treatment is a Half Way Normal Life…

    Actually this article smacks of being “Anti Disabled Veteran”…
    There are a few things that the Public must become aware of prior to any Reporter
    writing any article on PTSD…and quoting the VA and any Doctors that write Books…
    on the subject…
    The Dept. of VA Bureaucracy (Admin) is really anti Veteran…
    FACT any Medical Person that gets known as actually Helping Veterans…
    IS REMOVED from that Job…transferred to less contact with Veterans…

    Any Medical Study ever done that Proves actual PTSD/TBI is closed down…
    with the “Statement” that the Studies were inconclusive and all personnel
    are scatted to the Four Winds…

    FACT: All of the actual Long Term Medical Professionals treating PTSD
    have been “Removed from ALL PTSD Treatment Centers…and
    those Doctors that are left in Behavioral Health are mostly PART TIMEERS…
    The VA HAS not used the PTSD Treatment Funds for PTSD Treatment…
    Once a Full Time Medical Professional Retires or Leaves the VA Behavioral
    Health Depts…THEY are NEVER Replaced…

    As for the Doctors publishing Books about PTSD…
    They are just trying to “SELL BOOKS” which most should
    be assigned to the “Fiction Aisle”…

    Any Congressional Hearing on the VA is nothing more than a “Stage Play”…
    The Sect of Veterans Affairs…actually Knows NOTHING of the daily inside
    workings of the VA Bureaucracy especially in DC and the Directors offices
    in each VISN or VA Medical Facility…

    (…who’s attitude is…They are only here for Four Years…WE ARE HERE FOREVER !!!)

    Does anyone here really know the TRUE reason why during the Vietnam War,
    the USMC/US Navy came out with the “Combat Action Ribbon” (CAR) ???

    Or why the US Army came out with the “Combat Action Badge” (CAB)
    during the Gulf War ???

    The “TRUE REASON IS” To Combat the Over Whelming Numbers of
    “False Claims” for Combat PTSD…

    The “Biggest Reason” for all of the False Claims and Awards is that the
    Dept. of VA…”NEVER EVER AUTHENTICATES” any DD 214…
    Meaning the Only Tue way to Authenticate a DD 214 is to obtain a
    a Certified Copy of the Veterans DD 214 from St Louis…having it
    sent DIRECTLY to the VARO and NOT to the Veteran..and not rely
    upon a Copy the Veteran gave them…That is what I started to do…
    Dropped claims coming to me for Combat PTSD by 98%…

    (…which 98% of the VARO Staff “CANNOT” Interpret what is even Typed on it…)
    (Even when they are presented with the Proof of a False Claim they do NOTHING…)
    (Have seen Heads of PTSD Programs Removed from their Positions
    when they have Removed Veterans falsely Claiming PTSD…The Race card…)

    I am in Complete agreement with your High Numbers of FALSE PTSD CLAIMS…
    Came to that conclusion after my first 70 Claims…
    Where only Seven (7) out of 70 Veterans filing claims for Combat PTSD
    turned out to be telling the Truth…

    The VA does not want to cut these fraudulent Claims as they get
    PAID by the Social Security Numbers of each Veteran enrolled in their System…

    I will stop this lengthy piece for now…
    as I could go on and on…
    Respectfully submitted…
