Pete, I was in the Navy for 6.5 yrs and know first hand how impressive it is to see all the sailors standing at the rails around the sides of the ship when it comes into port. Makes you proud to be an American! Tell him congratulations on becoming an E-4, more money yippee!!!!
The eye thing sounds scary. I'm glad you finally decided to see the doc and that he isn't taking it lightly. Hope you get good results from the biopsy but do let us know how it turns out.
Did you ever get rescheduled for your xray for SSDI? I did find a local lawyer locally that handles SSDI cases that only takes payment if they win from your back pay so I guess I'm all set to file an appeal if I get denied. They are still reviewing the medical portion of my records at this point. I'm getting an injection done this coming Thurs. so I'll get to call my case worker to update him so maybe he will have some info for me then. I don't like to call and bug him cause people say they will put you at the bottom of the pile if you call too much.
Have a safe trip to Norfolk and hope the weather holds out for you!!!!!
