  • This is my story. There are many like it, but this one is mine. In 1997, I created one of the first Veterans Disability Claims Community, HadIt.com Veteran to Veteran. I named it HadIt.com right after I got off the phone with the VA and said I've had it. In 1997 I was 100% for PTSD/Major Depression. I was having a tough time getting through the day; sometimes, I had to take it 15 minutes at a time. More to come.

    A Mad Sailor


    The Diary of A Mad Sailor blog is all about my life and my journey overcoming PTSD and depression to create a popular veterans website, HadIt.com Veteran to Veteran. Research reveals that HadIt.com is the oldest continually online veterans forum. Check it out at the Wayback Machine.

    One person can make a difference. I made it my mission to make the VA claims process easier for my brothers and sisters. We have had millions of visitors and built a very supportive community.

    My endeavors began in 1994 I had a one-page website where I published resources and references. I used it to teach myself how to code HTML and create web pages. I then added a discussion forum. By 1996, the site had grown out of my little one-page site. So it was time to decide on a domain name and move everything to a dedicated host. I decided on the name HadIt.com on Jan 20, 1997, after slamming down the phone after another fruitless and exasperating call with the VA and saying I've had it. I registered it that very day, and the rest, as they say, is history.
