    CRSC as of 30 July

    Ron, I tend to agree, but in making special legislation in a hurry so the Legion can boost it’s sagging membership rolls, it sure would be funny if some CH61s benefitted since the Legion does not support us.

    CRSC as of 30 July

    On 30 July President Trump signed the legion act, making us in a continual state of war since 7 Dec 1941. Does this mean we are now eligible for CRSC if we were injured in the line of duty?

    Just joined the Army and I have ulcerative colitis and it's pretty bad. What's going to happen?

    Thyroid

    Yes it is, and solved with a daily (although giant) pill. Mine is 3 times a day. And simple blood tests. I see no reason for someone to lose $3000.00 per month or more over a simple fix. It is ethical based on circumstances. In this case military vs civilian.

    Thyroid

    Yes they do. Playing lab rat while the Dr's throw various medications and treatments at you as a civilian is fine. In the military the amount of time a person can be of no use to their unit.

    Thyroid

    Hi Jason, It's been a long time. I just ran across a guy going TDRL for a Thyroid problem. People need to understand the thyroid is no reason for PEB action. I would like to right an article and post it here. Are you okay with that? I can send it to you if you prefer. Brian

    Anyone Near Ft Bliss?

    My Brother and his wife will most likely be moving to the Ft Bliss area in the next month or so. He'll probably be working on Bliss. Anyone in the area willing to show them around and help them find a place to live?
