Hi Chief.  Thanks for the scuttlebutt info.  I have the DAV working on my claims.  I just thought I'd mention that I came across some programs on the computer to help us vets to submit our claims in a proper format.  I just purchased a combo package of a PDF writing program and the Dragon voice recognition software.  This package cost $178 with tax.  The rep at the company I bought if from said these programs should work nicely and I should be able to submit the proper documents and claim request via this program.  Everything in the VA is in PDF format.  For us disabled vets the Dragon software is ideal as you only have to speak.  The PDF program allows one to submit the documents one gathers and pictures to prove ones point.  Just thought this kind of info would be helpful to other vets via this forum.  Smooth sailing with calm winds to you.

Former CTO2/RM2 Fred Forschler,

     Thanks for allowing me aboard.  I left active service in 1966 as an STG-3, and when I got out it seemed that no one wanted to know, nor did anyone care about my service; even being called a bastard by some people when they saw my uniform.  I never talked about the navy with anyone until last year when I was rushed to the VA hospital with two collapsed lungs.  There, I was thanked for my service (which made me cry) and met other servicemen and women from every era who had things in common with me.

     Now, I tell everyone about the navy and about my destroyers.  I'm proud to say that I am a US Navy Tin Can Sailor!

Thank you for the welcome. My time in the Navy as a hospital corpsman provided a sound foundation for the rest of my life. I had a lot of varied medical experience and gained the motivation to go on to college graduation after my 4 year hitch. Because of my medical experience in the Navy I went on to employment in the emergency medical service field as a field consultant, EMS system manager and researcher in the EMS/Cardiology area. Later I worked in public health and then became involved in the computer field, eventually finishing a 25 year career. Through all those years the lessons of teamwork, dependability, and committment taught me by the U.S. Navy helped me to be successful in those various fields of endeavor. I am proud to have been a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman. I think all 18 year old Americans should serve a minimum of 2 years in the military of in service to America.

Thank you!! When I was discharged in July 1967 and enrolled at a local college, I was spit on and called a host of unsavory names--some things one never forgets

Regards,

Thank,  You Lindsey, Although after four years in the Navy, I joined the Coast Guard and retired from the Guard. My four years in the navy was great.

Thank you. I have had the opportunity for two great careers. When I started out in the Navy I knew it was what I needed at the time and decided in HM school I wanted to make it as a career. Fate would not allow me to stay in the Navy as an HM. I continued my career in the Coast Guard and on retirement I went back to Great Lakes for the retirement seminar.

My second career was with US Customs and Border Protection and I have recently retired from there.

Thanks for two great careers.

Thanks for the welcome Chief. It looks like you were at Balboa a couple of years after my discharge. I was in Corps school there in '66. Finished my enlistment in November of 69 after 2 years AT USNH guam.
