Bravo Zulu: USN Adopts Social Media

Medicare Help

Just thought I'd create this blog to vent my frustration.

Since I live in the state of Mass, where Obama got his great idea about the Health Care Bill, there is a real problem with finding good information concerning Medicare.

The number of Medicare Advantage plans available in Mass has dropped for 2011. In 2010 there were 3 pages of them with approximately 15 companies. For 2011, there are 4 insurance companies offering these plans in Mass.

searching for shipmate

I'm looking for anyone that may be familiar with enlisted Navy Reserve personnel that were stationed at Special Boat Unit 22 toward the end of 1981 & beginning of 1982. I have had a shipmate that helped me remember the name of the YN1 that I have been looking for. Her name is Eileen Olszewski. She was USNR. Anyone that knows her or her whereabouts please pass along to her that I'd really like to make contact with her. Or give her my e-mail address. Any information…
