Hmmm... I can't say that I remember any regulars here who are in the military. A while back I remember someone who popped in. I do, however, know there is/was at least 1 Crohnie (Crohn's Forum) in the military. Maybe they can help answer any questions you might have.

Thanks for the help. The only reason I asked is I am retired military and get a VA disabilitary rating of 30% because of IBS.   Ray

Michelle, I have requested a VA increase for IBS among other disabilities. I think the max you can get is 30% - you never know. You should request for an increase. Check out the Veterans Benifit Network website. Numerous folks there with service connected IBS problems. RAY
