Hi everyone! I was a former Navy corpsman but now I work for the Veterans Beneifit Administration. My husband who is currently active duty in the EOD community showed me a post about a month ago on an individual who stated he deployed and couldnt get service connected for anything. Seeing things like that infuriates me and the VA has failed on getting the information espcially those who have seen combat on what they can be service connected for. Theres a lot of information that combat vets need to know and I want to help get them what they deserve.

I was in the 142nd MP Company in Yongsan Korea from 1975-76, then at Fort Hood for a while. I reenlisted in 1990 when Desert Shield/Storm spun up. I was then assigned to the 814th MP Co. in Illinois at that time. Thanks for the welcomes!!!

I was a 1SG in 3/327 your time frame. Knew a lot of the LRSD guys and sent a few that way. PM me with some of the folks you knew there. I'm sure we knew a few of the same guys.

Welcome.

I knew a bunch of the LRSD guys as well and sent guys from my platoon, company, and No Slack that way.

PM me your list of notables as well- I may still be in contact with them...
