About

A retired, married old fart living in the woods in Colorado. These are my stories for them what care. And most won’t. I spent a year in Viet Nam as a slick helicopter door gunner supporting Special Forces. Other occupations I have had: water meter reader, medical laboratory specialist, aircraft parts supply sergeant, sugar research lab tech, tire buster, wastewater plant operator, powerplant zero discharge operator, and powerplant control specialist.

I am suffering from metastasized prostate cancer which is presently being held in check using hormone suppression. I have no libido or testosterone therefore I am a chemical eunuch. My view of life is very different now since I was always a lusty guy. Once the cancer realizes it doesn’t need testosterone to grow, there isn’t much the medical establishment can do for me.

I am resigned to dying relatively soon.

    I hope you have applied for you VA benefits. Prostate cancer is a presumptive condition. That means this condition can be service-connected. Since you served in Vietnam, you do not have to prove exposure to heribicides. Congress has determined anyone who had boots on ground was exposed – end of that story.

    If you haven’t applied and would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    I am on Medicare and don’t understand what I would gain from messing with the VA.
