Good Morning Paul What I had assumed, was correct. In my PTSD meeting yesterday, the group stated that your Honorable service in the U.S. Military, automatically makes you eligible for VA Care n Benefits. Have a 'fun' day. :) wain

Admin reply: Thanks again Wayne, nice to know we can get some VA health benefits if we need to. I will make an appointment soon and get a few things checked. Have a great weekend!

Good Day my 'Friend' Just returned from the GF Veterans' Service Office. Had a load of questions to ask, n be answered. First off, I had assumed that You, Rob, n Ron are in the VA System. If not, You need to be. The GF Service Office was 'very' eager to help-out in any way they could n would. I was told that there is a Service Officer (no name) that works the Hallock, Mn area....telephone #1-218-843-2198. The days he/she was in-office was not listed. The Lady in the GF Office is Kimberly Keller, telephone # 1-701-780-8296. "She was '''very''' helpful. Hopefully this will help-out n get the ball roll-n. If I can do further assistance, just ask... Have a good week. wain ;)

Admin reply: Hi Wayne, thanks for the information, it's much appreciated. Rob, and I are in the VA system, but not sure about Ron. As a matter of fact, Rob had a Dr. appointment last week in the Grafton VA Clinic. I'm sure he'll tell you all about it. Thanks again for all of your help.

Paul

Good Morning Paul It was 'grr-8' seeing n visiting with You, Shirley, n Rob Saturday in GF. In looking in the history of Agent Orange, I found that the U.S.A, was using that 'Killer' as early as 1961 n Vietnam n Southeast Asia. Ron needs to do more follow-up with his dilemma in relationship to Agent Orange. ''AND'', YOU AND ROB NEED, AND I REPEAT, TO PUSH TO GET VA ASSISTANCE. I'll see what I can find out down here. Again, it was 'fun' seeing "You Guys"!:-) Maybe n October in Larimore. wain

Admin reply: Hi Wain, likewise, it was great seeing you again, and thanks for asking us to join you and your group for a beer at the Eagles Club. I agree, Ron, Rob and I should go down to the VA, and see if they can do anything for us. Hopefully, we'll all see each other again in Larimore.

Looking for a Canadian that served in the US Army during the Vietnam war. He was my drill Instructor at Ft Lewis Wash. in 1968. By this time he had already been to Vietnam. All I have is a last name BAJA. Thanks for any help. Would love to tell him Thanks.

Admin reply: Hello Craig I went through basic in Ft Lewis 1968 also with three other Canadians in our Company and it would have been great to have a Canadian DI! If we ever come across your DI I will pass on your information.
