Pes Planus at MEPS

Question

Question. It was noted in my medical records from MEPS that I had asymptomatic pes planus. At the time I had no idea what that was. In basic I suffered from shin splint and bilateral shin fractures and was sent home on convalescent leave for 6 weeks also pulled  thigh muscle during that time. This happened in 1989. My legs have bothered me ever since but I have never been to the doctor about it. Managed to serve twelve years regardless. Now I have arthritis in both knees and my right hip is giving me problems. My wife, a nurse happens to think it was caused by my flat feet. Would this be worth pursuing? Could it be possible to get the flat feet service connected even tho it was noted as preexisting? Anyone have something similar happen? Thanks for your input.

And don't worry about what's not there. They can't use things like that to deny claims. (Or they shouldn't) As long as you have items one thru three, and there's no wildly opposing evidence, which there isn't.
