Board of Veterans’ Appeals Response to COVID-19
The Board of Veterans’ Appeals (Board) is making changes to keep Veterans safe from exposure to COVID-19 while continuing its mission of providing hearings and deciding appeals.
The Board has suspended all travel board, video and Central Office hearings through at least May 1, 2020. Virtual hearings remain available.

We ask Veterans to work with their representatives to reschedule hearings. Veterans who prefer to wait for travel board, video or central office hearings to resume will receive top priority in hearing rescheduling.

Click here for information on virtual hearings.

The Board will Advance on Docket (AOD) appeals for Veterans who have been diagnosed with COVID-19; Click here to find out how to file for AOD and what documentation is required.

During this National emergency, the Board will now accept typed signatures on AMA Notices of Disagreement (NOD)VA Form 10182, in lieu of a wet signature.

VA’s current regulations provide flexibility for veterans to meet existing timelines by requesting to extend the filing periods of certain documents for good cause. The Board understands that the current situation may create challenges for Veterans/appellants in meeting some deadlines, therefore the Board may consider requests for good cause to: submit notices of disagreement (38 CFR 20.203(c)) and to submit substantive appeals (38 CFR 19.53) in individual cases. Veterans/appellants will need to request extensions in writing.

The Bastrop County Health Authority has received information of a 2nd presumptive positive case of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Bastrop County. The 33-year-old female is a resident of Bastrop County.

Although most individuals who contract the virus will not need medical care, residents who develop low to moderate fever, cough, and shortness of breath are encouraged to contact their primary care physician and to follow their advice. If you do not have a primary care physician, please reach out to the Ascension COVID-19 Hotline at (833) 978-0649.

The best way to protect yourself and your family is to take the following preventive actions to avoid exposure:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Today we WELCOME HOME a Brother killed during the battle of Chosin Reservoir, in 1950, whose remains were returned by North Korea in 2018. He has now been accounted for by DPAA and will be laid to rest, with full military honors, June 12, 2020 in Arlington National Cemetery. Rest Easy Brother, You have now accomplished your earthly mission.

Soldier Accounted For From Korean War (Storms, H.)
Release No: 19-128 March 23, 2020

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced today that Army Maj. Harvey H. Storms, 34, of McAllen, Texas, killed during the Korean War, has been accounted for.

In late 1950, Storms was a member of Headquarters Company, 3rd Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division, which was part of the 31st Regimental Combat Team. He was reported missing in action on Dec. 1, 1950, when his unit was attacked by enemy forces near the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea. Following the battle, his remains could not be recovered.

On July 27, 2018, following the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un in June 2018, North Korea turned over 55 boxes, purported to contain the remains of American service members killed during the Korean War. The remains arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii on Aug. 1, 2018, and were subsequently accessioned into the DPAA laboratory for identification.

To identify Storms’ remains, scientists from DPAA used anthropological analysis, as well as circumstantial and material evidence. Additionally, scientists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System used mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), Y-chromosome DNA (Y-STR) and autosomal DNA (auSTR) analysis.

Storms' name is recorded on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, along with the others who are still missing from the Korean War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.

Storms will be buried June 12, 2020, at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced today that U.S. Army Cpl. Ralph L. Cale, 19, of Covington, Virginia, killed during the Korean War, has been accounted for.

In December 1950, Cale was a member of Company B, 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. He was reported missing in action on Dec. 2, 1950, when his unit was attacked by enemy forces in the vicinity of the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea. His remains could not be recovered following the attack and he was not reported as a prisoner of war.

On July 27, 2018, following the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un in June 2018, North Korea turned over 55 boxes, purported to contain the remains of American service members killed during the Korean War. The remains arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii on Aug. 1, 2018, and were subsequently accessioned into the DPAA laboratory for identification.

His remains have now been recovered and accounted for by DPAA and he will be returning to his hometown for burial, with full military honors at a future date.

Pilot Accounted For From World War II (Ferguson, E.)
Release No: 19-202 March 24, 2020

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced today that U.S. Army Air Forces 2nd Lt. Earl F. Ferguson, 26, of Philip, South Dakota, killed during World War II, has been accounted for.

In the summer of 1943, Ferguson was a pilot assigned to the 329th Bombardment Squadron, 93rd Bombardment Group (Heavy), 8th Air Force. On Aug. 1, 1943, the B-24 aircraft on which Ferguson was the co-pilot crashed as a result of enemy anti-aircraft fire during Operation Tidal Wave, the largest bombing mission against the oil fields and refineries at Ploiesti, north of Bucharest, Romania. His remains were not identified following the war. The remains that could not be identified were buried as Unknowns in the Hero Section of the Civilian and Military Cemetery of Bolovan, Ploiesti, Prahova, Romania.

Following the war, the American Graves Registration Command, the organization that searched for and recovered fallen American personnel, disinterred all American remains from the Bolovan Cemetery for identification. One set that could not be identified was designated Unknown X-5300 Neuville, and reinterred into the American Military Cemetery at Neuville-en-Condroz, Belgium.

In 2017, DPAA began exhuming unknowns believed to be associated with unaccounted for airmen from Operation Tidal Wave losses. On Aug. 28, 2017, Unknown X-5300 Neuville was disinterred and sent to the laboratory for analysis.

To identify Ferguson’s remains, scientists from DPAA used dental and anthropological analysis. Additionally, scientists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System used mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis.

Ferguson’s name is recorded on the Tablets of the Missing at the Florence American Cemetery, an American Battle Monuments Commission site in Impruneta, Italy, along with others still missing from WWII. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.

Ferguson will be buried in his hometown. The date has yet to be decided.

🌟 NEED TO FIND GOOD HOME FOR FEMALE LAB/RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK DOG 🌟 I am handicapped and my dog is getting to be too much for me to handle since, the loss of my spouse recently. He was a Persian Gulf veteran with PTSD and my dog soothed and helped him. She is a dog I rescued from being a stray in the Dale area. Her name is Baby. Baby is about four years old and weighs 100 pounds. However, she really doesn't eat a lot of food. She is afraid of thunderstorms, fireworks, and gun shots due to being shot at before I took her into my home a couple of years ago. She is kept indoors at the present time due to heat but also, loves the outdoors during cooler weather. She is great around children and other animals. Also would adapt easily to a loving owner. She loves attention, which my husband gave her. Baby is house broken and has had her rabies shots for this year. However, she does need to be spayed.
