Re: bad memories

Hell I have lots of unwanted memories but I'll save those for another day. The one memory that stands out is of a better one. Everybody has seen the most famous picture of Gulf War, from the book the Gulf War 1991. It has a picture of a soldier on top of a tank with the oil wells in the back ground....

Re: My claim and your advice please ...

It has been a while but I figured I would update those that are interested in what has happened to me thus far. I went to that last scheduled C&P Exam and it was with an outside contractor. I think the meeting didn't go to well. She kept asking me a ton of questions about work history and wanted me...

Re: What was the scariest thing you did or seen in the war?

An Iraqi soldier that had been run over by an M1 tank. Remember when you were a kid and would take a ketchup packet and stomp on it? Exact same effect. Red crap sprayed everywhere. I have a couple of pics of this exact thing too, most likely a different guy though. I was on burial detail along the ...

Re: VA Marks 20th Anniversary of Ground Combat in Gulf

This guy who wrote it was a commander in my division so he would have been close to me as well. If I could only get a supportive statement from him for my claim. If his committed to helping fellow Vets I see why not. Whats the worst he can say no, he's part of VA he's already said no in a sense. Go...
