Thanks a lot for the wishes and prayers, I really appreciate. I do know that the Lord has his plan, and that I am in His care.
Em takes care of me real well, and I learned a long time ago that it is best to listen to her. Besides, I still have about 27 years to go - want to make it to 50 years with her!
Unfortunately the only thing Vets in Canada get is Phillipsed or Robertsoned - read screwed.... The VA don't help, not if they can help it that is
. I have a couple of aquaintances (fellow Canadians) who served in the US Forces during the Vietnam war, in fact one of them is a Medal of Honour winner
. Boy do you guys take care of them - even after they have returned to Canada.
I read an article today, speaking of which. 12,000 Canadians served with US Forces during Vietnam (my uncle was one of them), 150 died in combat. Over 1,000 Canadians served with US Forces during the 1st Gulf War. Today, there are up to an estimated 10,000 Canadians serving with US Forces. They are the largest single source of non-citizens serving in the US Forces. (These are either those who hold duals, have alien green cards or had just said the hell with the Canadian Government for not getting involved and joined the US Forces). Interesting tidbits that I see every now and again. Really proud of our guys and gals!
As for scheduling, I am on the fast track which makes things easier. If you need care, you get it. If you need emergency care, man you get it pronto. I am very proud of our health care system. If it is elective, then you wait, and wait and wait, which is as it should be. Especially tummy tucks and such as that there.
It is gonna be awhile before there is any inheritance concerns.
I still have a bunch I need to aquire yet - haven't filled up me quota of Cubs yet
That is what they tell me, and I am hopeful. I intend to do all the docs tell me to do to enhance those chances.
Thanks again guys, I really appreciate
God Bless you all (+)
