Dan, I was a STG2 working as an analyst in the T building on NAVFAC GRAND TURKS in 1968. ( Obviously a few years before OT's). I have COPD stage ,4. I am and was a non smoker. Otherwise, very healthy. I put in a disability claim for bronchitis and COPD. I was denied, my American Leigon rep put in for reconsideration, they denied that also. Now I'm scheduled for my first appeal in August. I'd love to communicate with you on this to share and help each other, and any other past personell out. I've only found one "official " publication put out by the USN discussing the amount of carbom dust coating everything in the T building. And of course certainly ill vertainly share that.


My direct email, ronanderson@snet looking forward to hearing from you shipmate. Be well. Ron Anderson 


PS. Anyone with an interest , wanting help or offering help please feel free to respond to me at this email.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
