Tim, James and Mark.   I read this article in 2013 and have been taking CoQ10 supplements daily since.  Do a search on "q10" in army times' website and you will se another 2014 article from the same research team.


I wasn't having near as many issues as you three, but I noticed a significant improvement very shortly after starting.

Most with symptoms are being diagnosed with panic disorder, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome.  Problem is they are not panic attacks.  So now they are diagnosing them all under multiple undiagnosed illness.  Muscles will get weaker with every attack and memory and coordination will decrease.  MRI on most show atrophy to frontal lobe too much for age.  I am now in a wheelchair due to being a fall risk because it finally has affected my legs.  There are many studies and now the VA will just look to see if you served in the War and if you are diagnosed with any of these symptoms they automatically rate you for them.  Best thing to do is to see a veterans organization like the DAV and let them be your representative.  Seems to go easier and better.

Does anyone remember Sgt. Pangaleni (spelling)? He was in RSS Merrill Barracks Maint. Platoon. 1990-1992 or later. I think he was from California, but i am not for sure it would be good to talk to him again.

Can i get a copy of those orders for the Spurs?
Comment by Jerry Wayne Parker on August 25, 2012 at 1:18pm
I don't remember a lot of names except for the ones in my Platoon and the ones I ran with. Is there anyone here from RSS Merrill Barracks and 3rd. MST.

I should check this more often.  Can you PLLEAASSE send me a copy of those orders.  Its never too late to get them added to my official record.

Sorry I didn't mention it but according to the orders 2nd ACR was allowed the Humanitarian Service Medal.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
