Finally got my first letter back from the VA about my Viet Nam Prostate Cancer disabilty claim.  Sonny,  don't know how you got yours so fast!  But then you live in a highly populated area, and I live in South Carolina.  It was the standard letter I was expecting.  Did get the marriage certificate to them, so sitting tight.
