Vets Shouldn’t Have to Wait for a Cardiologist!

My Story:

I am a US Army combat Vet with 16 years of total service…I was a Tank Crewman in the Cold War, then re-enlisted after 9/11 and mobilized for Operation Iraqi Freedom in November, 2004. My first daughter was born in October 2004 and I only had 30 days with her before I deployed to Iraq. I didn’t get back until the next November, after her 1st Birthday.  I went on many missions with the 216th MI, Ground Surveillance and Recon Platoon and I was awarded a Combat Action Badge. I lost two friends to IED’s.  I also survived a rocket attack when it impacted behind me and went whizzing past me, but for some reason, perhaps by divine intervention, it failed to detonate. I just think it was autonomous chance, like a Las Vegas Slot Machine except this one took your life in exchange for nickels and the payout jackpot was another day to live and breath God’s good air.
