Question

I was in both Afghanistan 2001 to 2002 and Iraq 2003 to 2004 I was around a lot of explosions and IED's in 2007 I finely received 100% P&T with TUID in 2008 I was treated for TBI I was told I have moderate TBI was given tested and went to a balance center for balance related problems and then I went through testing for memory loss and forgetfulness and I was given a PDA from the VA and I was told that I have Mild TBI and I was just wondering should I put in for the purple heart. I was awarded a bronze star medal with V device also the Combat Infantryman Badge and Combat Action Badge along with 22 ½ years of service. Just wondering what I should do if any thing

I was treated at my VA hospital 3 to 4 years after I retired from the service I was told I had a mild TBI. I was around a lot of IED’s and mortars I never got treated for a concussion when I was in combat would that keep me from trying to apply for the Purple Heart

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

So love the people who treat you right.

Forget about the one's who don't.

Never make a person a priority in your

life, when you are just an option in theirs!
