What is the Bounding Overwatch VA Form Builder?

TheBlue Cord Patriots, LLC and their partners have built a VA Form Builder! We constantly strive to make the forms easier to follow and understand and also more accessible for veterans who may not have a computer and can only use their Smart Phones.

Why the name Bounding Overwatch Forms Builder?

The Blue Cord Patriots derived the name Bounding Overwatch for our forms builder due to the traditional squad and platoon tactics widely deployed by the United States Infantry.

According towikipedia:

A Bounding overwatch is a military tactic of alternating movement of coordinated units to allow, if necessary, suppressive fire in support of offensive forward “fire and movement” or defensive “center peel” disengagement.

As members of a unit (element to platoon level) take an overwatch posture, other members advance to cover; these two groups continually switch roles as they close with the enemy. This process may be done by “leapfrogging” with fire teams, but is usually done within fire teams along a squad/platoon battle line to simulate an overwhelming movement toward[s] the enemy and make it more difficult for the enemy to distinguish specific targets.

How Does This Relate to VA Forms and Blue Cord Patriots?

The Blue Cord Patriots are intimately familiar with this tactic, and feel that it encompasses the attempt at covering the veteran as they strive to understand the VA forms.

The use of this form builder is entirely optional, and in no way affiliated with the Department of Veterans Affairs. This is an attempt to assist veterans in understanding the VA forms by referencing, 38 Code of Federal Regulations, and the various adjudication manuals such as M21-1 Adjudication Manualas used by the raters at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
