This is not a recrutement thread however hit up any Triarii in game or check out Lephturns pod casts and they can direct you to what to do.

 

I know I went off-topic. I'll do just that. Thanks.

Carried daughter in backpack for 8 miles yesterday.  EVERYTHING hurts today.  Hate getting old

Just started running again for first time since high school. My daughter said she would go out with me. Of course she made me look like a geezer (she is in cross country) but I am encouraged that there is something she will do with her old man.

There's a blind spot on my roof that can only be seen while on my roof or other roofs nearby. When I want to be left alone, I'll tell my wife "I'm going on the roof" and I'll go lay down up there. Neither she nor the boys will bother me because they assume I'm working on something. If I want to really add credibility, I'll let them see me bring the rooter up there.

Reminds me of a call I went on when I was working the street. Seems that this woman liked to sunbathe in her back yard. She ahd high fensis so she did it in the nude. Well her neighbore called in a report that she was being indecent and of course us officers responded. 

 

When we got there the guy told us that she was being discusting laying around naked.  So we asked him to show us where he was seeing this.  Guess what he took us up on his roof cause you couldn't see her from ground level or even from the windows of his house. 

 

I asumed his wife had him call after he got caught being a voier.

I hear Ya I can't do that anymore. I went and saw the doc Arther is in my knees and He said I was at a ( on a 10 scale for replacement.  He sent me to the specialist who proceds to rail on me for being over weight and said he wouldn't work on me unless I lost over 50 lbs.  I was polite but as I left his office I thought I wouldnt come back to see you if you were croking. 

Good luck with the redue.

If my daughter ever asks me to go running with her, she's going to be sorely disappointed ;).

Have you ever noticed that when people run they don't look happy?  Why would I do something that makes millions of people unhappy everyday?  (being old and overweight has no bearing on my attitudes on this subject...right)

I have to stay in shape for my job which includes running. I'll be honest. I'm never happy when I'm simply maintaining a fitness level. It's just...awful.

 

I'm not that 18 year old Private anymore, that's for sure.

Initial conversation with my VA knee specialist..

Doc says....you did time in jumping out of helos and perfectly good airplanes?

Me..how did you know Doc?

Doc says..retired Army Lt.Col..spent career treating you overgrown kids..

Doc says..you run a lot?

Me..the usual

Doc says...usual for you [edited]...like 6-8 miles? per day?

Me..how did you know Doc?..do I need to cut down?

Doc says..you need to stop..both ACL's are torn and way offset from center and you lost 50 percent of your cartilage.

The VA only gave me 20% for a hip issue and exposure to burn pits. I got back in and have had better success with doctors. Ugh...I hate the VA

Had a good game today in my tiger II on Canal. Went from bottome spawn to the left and then circled back when the Red's showed up at our spawn. I was able to take out three of them without being seen one of the other on my team took out three others but the last was AFK somewhere so we Capped out.

VA told me "you've got COPD". Filed a claim, along with my exposure letter, and they said "no, we were wrong, you're fine". 0%

 

A month later, out of nowhere, I get a letter saying they've given me 10% for the ringing in my ears. 

 

Give a dog a bone? 

 

VA service got better when they were front page. We've crested that hill and are going downhill again.

Had a lot of fun last night/early this morning on the Triarii Teamspeak. Had enough on that we often filled a majority of the slots in battle. It really makes me dread pub battles today. Thanks for letting us Spuds play in you sandbox.

pretty much..

 

On my med board..the doc pretty much said my cumulative claims should be a valid over 100 percent, proven and documented..but the beancounters don't approve you 100 percent on the first go...they want you to quit....don't, keep trying....the doc said but then again he was a retired Army LTC..

 

It was good two years ago when public attention was on...now it's back to how bad it was again.

The real baloney part is if your case is like publicly known..like on TV,  book, internet..any media where there public spotlight is on they give you whatever you need...makes VA look good and like they are taking care of the troops like they are supposed too.
