Re: About A payment for personnel that was in desert storm

I remember that ... it was in the papers. I would've taken the money. I was married and drawing BAQ and BAS. They stopped our BAS so we basically took a $200 a month cut in pay. They stopped the COLA for Germany as well. Screwed us big time on the money.

Re: VA Care and Activity

Posted that to encourage everyone to keep up the fight. I've been at it for awhile and finally got a small piece of the puzzle identified. Not resolved, but identified.

Re: medications given prior to Desert Storm

Don't know. Lots and Lots of stuff is still unknown. Hell, look at how long it took the Vietnam vets to get closure on the Agent Orange thing.

Who knows what we don't know.

Re: Gulf War Review

I just posted my story in another heading, but yes a lot of it is just beauracracy (sp?). Too much overhead and not enough caring on the individual level ... and those that do care and try are stifled by the rules, regulations, and policies. Dagger makes a good point though ... at least they haven't...

Re: VA Care and Activity

I've been fighting with the health care folks for years. They've told me that I didn't have anything wrong, that I didn't look like I was in pain, that I had anger issues so they couldn't help me, there was nothing that they could do, etc. etc. I went fussing and cussing into the hospital chief of s...

Re: VA Care and Activity

The pain, numbness, and tingling in my upper extremities is one of the symptoms that has the doctors shaking their heads and pointing me to the Behavioral health folks. I have it in my lower extremities also. The latest pursuit for a definition to this specifically is for a small nerve biopsy ... it...

Re: kuwait liberation medal

I'm not sure about the three. I know about the Kuwait Liberation Medal (Saudi Arabia) and the Kuwait Liberation Medal (Kuwait). What is the other? Fill out a Standard Form 180. In Section II, Item 2 (Other Information and/or Documents Requested) put this: 1) Kuwait Liberation Medal (Kuwait) 2) Kuwai...

Re: Leaving/losing jobs due to temper

It's all crap. The gov't says don't discrimate based on race, religion, medical condition, etc. The employers have many ways to hide their bias ... hiring, by nature, is discriminatory ... someone loses and someone wins. They can't not hire you based on your PTSD, but they can not hire you just beca...
