I recently went to get a cataract check and the doctor told me that was fine, but I had a hereditary disease with a name about a mile long. Turns out what it is my eye has ripples in it that are like a fingerprint. Only way to get rid of it is…"
"I agree Dave! Let's see what happens. I too get disability payments from the VA. Most importantly my service connected medical problems are covered 100 percent. I think this health insurance thing will be more then he can bear. Wag the dog!…"

I have been busy working quite a bit lately and have not checked in much here at the base. I read where you lost Bryan, and that is a sad thing for sure, I can relate, I lost my boy General Patton late last year he was a 9 year old American Bulldog, and it takes a bit to recover from those things, but we do,it just takes some time. I am dog less, for the first time since I have been home from the Army 1982, thirty three years, I am not sure what I am going to do I have had some good dogs over the years and I am sure I will get another one someday not sure what kind just yet. I just wanted to write you a note and say I understand the pain and hope you get to feeling better, and you will, and I know from experience that nothing like a new pup to lift the spirit and put a smile on your face. I always thought a Basset hound would be a good dog to have when I get to be a old man. I guess its that time. Stay well Brother.
I have never known the pleasure or pain of owning a dog. My pets usually have feathers. But I know of no one who has experienced the loss of a dog who has not expressed what you are feeling. I'm sorry you lost your friend.
Are you the guy who actually ran the support platoon? I think you worked with Dave Glamm. I was the S-4 Officer at the time. If I recall, the actual Platoon Sgt had a problem and you were asked to sew stripes on and run the platoon. If this is you, you did a great job.
