Re: Takhli Thailand case Awarded
I finally get a hearing before a judge later this month. Iíve been dealt with the va for my disability AO exposure ischemic heart disease for 7+years. Iíve been waiting on the hearing since 2016!
I agree this is a terrible way to treat us. They told me the same thing first time.... No proof you served in Thailand. It was in my military records which they were supposed to verify. At least I thought they were.
How long did it take you to get a hearing before the VA Administrative Judge? I finally got tired of sending additional information and them ignoring 2/3 of what I sent so I asked for a hearing a few months ago.
I was in takhli (PCS) in 1972. To get there one need to fly from Travis AFB to Clark AB in the philippines and stay there for a day or two to catch a C130 going to viet-nam. In Danang we have to get out of the airplane so it can be unloaded the supplies it was hauling and also the aircraft can be refuel. when all those things are done,we went aboard the C130 and fly to Dong Muang AB Thailand, from there we took a bus to take us to Takhi AB. When my time of Going home I also take a C130 going to viet-nam stay there for 2-4 hours and fly to Clark AB in the Philippines and catch a freedom bird there going to Travis AFB. It is unbelievable that the VA now saying to me that I never set foot in Viet-Nam. Also it is ironic to me the VA was telling me that I did not served in Thailand even though it was on my Military Personal record. I am continuing fighting the VA and I have a Judge VA board hearing on the 6 November 2019 at Bay Pines Florida.
