This organization has been legally defunct under MN law since in or about February 2006.

However, it continues to proclaim a public status that has interferred with its mother-organization ("The Original-V'ERPA")(www.verpapublishing.us).

The person responsible for misleading the public and media is Ms. Barbara Cragnotti.

Don't be fooled . . . as the VERPA Inc web site shows . . . all information is copyrighted "V'ERPA" materials and being used unlawfully.

    Remembering the meaning of Veterans Day. Remembering our Soldiers.
    Remembering the People.

    As Veterans Day approaches, November 11, 2009, for some it's a day of honor, for others it's just a day off from work, and for many businesses a veterans day sale! It is, in fact, a day of remembrance. One honoring all those who have fought and died for our country, and for showing gratitude and respect for those who are currently fighting and dying for our country. Those people are your fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends, relatives, somebody you know or even yourself.

    You are receiving this letter because we know that you are going to act on it and to do the right thing in response.

    U.S. Military Health Care has a law called the Feres Doctrine that does not allow military doctors to be held accountable for negligent care. That means that if you or a loved one is seriously injured because of military medical malpractice that you are pretty much S.O.L.!

    NY Congressman Hinchey's Bill; The Carmelo Rodriguez Military Malpractice Accountability Act of 2009 H.R. 1478 and NY Senator Schumer's sister bill S. 1347 will change that! These Bills have a great chance of being voted into law very soon, but only if everyone of us tells our congressmen and senators that we, their respective constituents insist that they at the very least vote in favor of these bills or better still become cosponsors of the bills. That's all you have to do! LET THEM KNOW NOW that you support the bills too!

    We've made it so easy for you to follow through. Here's how.

    1. Attached to this email, you will find The Veterans Day Proposal and a Petition for all of you to sign. Have everyone you know sign it too.

    We would like to collect as many signed petitions by the 25th of November, so please hurry. Even if you don't live in Oregon, send your petition to us and we can get it to the right place.

    2. Also please CALL your senators and congressman and have everyone you know do so as well on Veterans Day. Let them know where you stand on this issue! There is information on finding your Congressmen in The Veterans Day Proposal.

    3. Please PASS this email onto your friends and families. We need to make and impact on November 11, 2009

    4. Please visit www.erniesfootprints.com for updates and additional information.

    Thank you for making Veterans Day 2009 the day you can truly say "I supported the troops!" "I supported our veterans!" "I support the lives of people I care about!"

    With liberty and justice for all?
    The 1950 U.S. Supreme Court's Feres Doctrine [1] = the in 2010 continuation of the 1994 U.S. Senate's stated Department of Defense (DOD) injuring experiments on "hundreds of thousands" [7] of those that serve?
    The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) and U.S. Senate identified the under the cover of war DOD human experiments; [3] & [7]. They can not be addressed by the U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals (COVA) or by any other U.S. Court; [4], [5] & [6]! Please hold your members in the U.S. House and Senate accountable. Thank you.
    OUTLINE:
    Despite the efforts of some, in 2009 it is fifteen (15) of fifty nine (59) years later without the U.S. Congress’s then known violations corrected. REFERENCES [1] thru [8]: In 1950 the U.S. Supreme Court Feres Doctrine holds the federal government harmless for injuries to military personnel.[1] The 1953 Secretary of the DOD issued a for 22 years Top Secret, no non-consensual military human experiments memo.[2] Coincidently, it was declassified the year following Congress's 1974 Privacy Act that censored out the names of all co-guinea pigs that survived the 1973 National Personnel Records Center fire. In Sept. 1994 there was the GAO "Human Experimentation" "Testimony" on order disobeyed injuries to U.S. Military personnel.[3] In Oct. 1994 the Chief Judge of Congress’s 1988 established inferior COVA stated that the, "Constitution, statutes and regulations" are "policy freely ignored" by both the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and "The Veterans Health Administration" (VHA). Also there is the, "The" Veterans Appeals "court may not review the schedule of ratings for disabilities or the policies underlying the schedule.", e.g., DOD human experimentation issues.[4] That is the herein "STATE OF COURT" transcript PARAGRAPH 9 with Congress’s law of the land, no allowed Court review U.S. CODE, TITLE 38, SECTIONS (§) 511 and § 7252. Decisions of the Secretary; finality; [5] & [6]. Then the 54 page Dec. 94 U.S. Senate’s "hundreds of thousands" of military guinea pigs acknowledgment plus its still ignored, "The Feres Doctrine should not be applied for military personnel who are harmed by inappropriate human experimentation when informed consent has not been given."[7]
    The DOD Secretary's NO non-consensual, human experiment's means an after order disobeyed dereliction of duty demonstrated by the GAO and U.S. Senate in [3] & [7]! In 1988 the U.S. Congress’s Veteran's Judicial Review Act created COVA. This is a U.S. Congressional no teeth inferior LEGISLATIVE, NOT a Judicial Branch Court. It can not hold the DOD & DVA responsible for the underlying facts of a case. Its Chief Judge describes veterans captured within an out of control, DVA health care process. Lost is a prior to military service right to a facts of the case reviewing and precedence setting, superior Judicial Branch Court. All veterans are captured within the "freely ignored" "Constitution, statutes and regulations" Executive Branch. To date the DOD Secretary’s disobeyed order, the GAO, Veterans Court Chief Judge, U.S. Senate and the Pledge of Allegiance violations have not been corrected! Now gone for both active U.S. Service Personnel and U.S. Veterans are the check and balances between our branches of government, i.e., the Legislative (U.S. House and Senate), the Executive (e.g., DOD and DVA) and the Judicial. In 2006 under the "Pandemic All-Hazards Preparedness Act" the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) was established.[8] Under its wartime "national security missions" is an in the foot steps follow on to the DOD injuring biomedical research documented by the GAO and U.S. Senate.[3] & [7]?
    A couple of examples of the "initial adjudicators" to date "freely ignored" are this veterans 1957 DVA Physician’s resultant USAF Physician's, "MPerR PERMANENT" "SURGEON HQ ARRC JUN 25 ‘58 MEDICALLY DISQUALIFIED FOR MILITARY SERVICE"! Then the layman adjudicator’s brainless 6/27/96 Supplemental Statement Of the Case (SSOC) no "...competent medical evidence...". After an ongoing 18 years in the DVA administrative process the veteran receives a 100%disability. To date there is still no recognition of their 1957 DVA physician’s in 1952-1956 service resultant 1958 USAF physician "disqualified"!

    --------------------PARAGRAPH 9 of 16 in "STATE OF COURT" TRANSCRIPT records DVA laymen ignoring medical opinion without veteran recourse.-----------------------------
    "I believe my message is clear. There is, I suggest, no system with judicial review which has within it a component part free to function in its own way, in its own time and with one message to those it disappoints -- take an appeal. That is, I am afraid, what we have today in many of the Department's Agencies of Original Jurisdiction -- that is AOJs -- around the country. Neither the Court, through the Board, the Board, nor the General Counsel has direct and meaningful control over the Agencies of Original Jurisdiction. Indeed, it is also clear that the VHA -- the Veterans Health Administration -- ignores specific directives to provide medical opinions as directed. And this is resulting in unconscionable delays. Let us examine judicial review. Remember, the Court and the Board do not make policy, the Secretary and Congress do. The Court simply identifies error made below by a failure to adhere, in individual cases, to the Constitution, statutes, and regulations which themselves reflect policy -- policy freely ignored by many initial adjudicators whose attitude is, "I haven't been told by my boss to change. If you don't like it -- appeal it." The complete 16 paragraph "STATE OF COURT" transcript is available on request. Previously at, and now missing from the Chief Judges and state_of_court sites: www.goodnet.com/~heads/nebeker & www.firebase.net/state_of_court_brief.htm The legal-dictionary source "http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/federal+court"Federal Courts notes in part: "The court may not review the schedule of ratings for disabilities or the policies underlying the schedule."
    The top medically ignorant "boss" is Congress’s confirmed "Secretary" of the DVA.
    AND THE CONGRESS’S "policy freely ignored" UNITED STATES CODE law of the land, take away from Veterans:
    [5] UNITED STATES CODE, TITLE 38 > PART I > CHAPTER 5 > SUBCHAPTER I > § 511. Decisions of the Secretary; finality
    http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/usc...11----000-.html

    "(a) The Secretary shall decide all questions of law and fact necessary to a decision by the Secretary under a law that affects the provision of benefits by the Secretary to veterans or the dependents or survivors of veterans. Subject to subsection (b), THE DECISION OF THE SECRETARY AS TO ANY SUCH QUESTION SHALL BE FINAL AND CONCLUSIVE AND MAY NOT BE REVIEWED BY ANY OTHER OFFICIAL OR BY ANY COURT, whether by an action in the nature of mandamus or otherwise."
    THEREFORE, NO COURT REVIEW OF THE MEDICALLY UNTRAINED DVA laymen and "Secretary" "schedule of ratings for disabilities" decisions as proven by:
    [6] UNITED STATES CODE, TITLE 38 PART V > CHAPTER 72 > SUBCHAPTER I > § 7252. Jurisdiction; finality of decisions
    "(b) Review in the Court shall be on the record of proceedings before the Secretary and the Board. The extent of the review shall be limited to the scope provided in section 7261 of this title. THE COURT MAY NOT REVIEW THE SCHEDULE OF RATINGS FOR DISABILITIES adopted under section 1155 of this title or any action of the Secretary in adopting or revising that schedule."
