That's why I tell young dudes to keep every scrap of paper the military gives you, same as one of my drill sergeants did me.

I actually had my original sick call slip, so that helped along with a few other bits and pieces.

I made copies of my medical record when I retired, based on what I read here. The originals went to the VA, my family doctor got a copy, and I have a copy in my house. I should probably scan a copy into a PDF, but that seems like it'd take a LOOOOONG time in front of a scanner.

Scan it and any other records you have, put it on a memory stick or two and safety deposit box one and one to a trusted friend's place to store in their safe.
